Coolsculpting® Chicago Loves
Some people are born naturally trim and fit looking. However, most people must work at their body shape by maintaining a healthy diet and regularly engaging in calorie-burning and weight-lifting exercises. But even then, there may be areas of your body that retain stubborn fat.
Finally, there is a way no get rid of that fat without having to undergo an invasive procedure. Coolsculpting is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to make stubborn fat disappear.
Coolsculpting was developed at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. The treatment delivers controlled cooling that targets fat cells underneath the skin, without damage to your skin. These fat cells are frozen during the Coolsculpting process and die.
What to Expect with Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting requires only one hour of your time per treated area. We often use Coolsculpting to remove those troublesome love handles and the muffin-top area just below the waist. And now, Coolsculpting can also be used to eliminate your double chin. During your treatment, you will feel some pressure and extreme cold. This feeling abates after a short time. Many people find that they can relax, read, check email or even take a nap. After a Coolsculpting treatment, you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities. Depending on your goals, we may need to schedule additional Coolsculpting appointments in order to achieve desired results.
In time, your body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells and you have a more sculpted appearance. Changes may be visible as soon as three weeks after treatment, with the most noticeable results appearing after two months. Your body will continue to eliminate fat cells for four to six months after your Coolsculpting procedure.
Why doesn’t weight loss always provide these type of results? Because there’s a difference between fat reduction and weight loss. When you lose weight, fat cells become smaller, but they are not eliminated. So, if you should happen to gain back the weight, then those fat cells enlarge. With Coolsculpting, however, we can actually reduce the number of fat cells in a particular area of your body. And a fat cell that isn’t there simply cannot not become larger. Thus, the results you see some time after your Coolsculpting treatment are long-lasting.
