Do you want to get rid of stubborn fat without surgery? CoolSculpting has been around for over a decade and is one of the most reliable non-invasive body contouring treatments.
While it’s tried and true, people often wonder which body parts react best to CoolSculpting treatments. After all, nobody wants to risk wasting their time or money on something that doesn’t work!
In this article, I’ll discuss the best body parts to target with CoolSculpting and explain why they respond best so you can enjoy lasting results.
What is CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy stubborn fat cells. It works by targeting fat cells beneath the skin and cooling them until they crystalize and die. Once destroyed, these fat cells are broken down and eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes. This process, known as cryolipolysis (or “cold lipolysis”), has been proven to provide lasting results without surgery or downtime.
CoolSculpting can target nearly any area of the body where fat deposits or tends to accumulate – including the abdomen, back, flanks, arms, hips, neck, and chin. During treatment, one or more handheld devices are applied and held in place above the fat deposits until they freeze. In general, one session can last anywhere from 35 minutes to an hour depending on how many areas you’re having treated. Afterward, you may see some initial results with additional visible changes emerging over time as your body sheds frozen fat cells away from the treatment site.
Overall, CoolSculpting is an effective tool for reducing stubborn pockets of fat in all types of problem areas and can be used in conjunction with diet and lifestyle modifications for the best results.
Two types of fat tissue
When it comes to CoolSculpting, it’s important to know that there are two types of fat tissue. There’s subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat or surface fat is the type between the surface of your skin and the muscle layer. Visceral fat is located deeper within the body and surrounds internal organs like the heart, lungs, and intestines.
CoolSculpting only targets subcutaneous fat, which is found in areas such as the belly, back, arms, and thighs. If you want to reduce visceral fat levels, there are other treatments available that can help like diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting works best on stubborn areas of subcutaneous fat which have proven resistant to regular diet and exercise regimes, so be sure to discuss with your doctor which body parts may both benefit from treatment and respond positively to CoolSculpting technology in order to get the best results!
What Body Parts Can Be Contoured with CoolSculpting
So which body parts can be contoured with CoolSculpting? Pretty much any area where there are unwanted pockets of fat layers or sometimes called trouble spots, including the belly, chin, neck, and arms; thighs, buttocks, hips, and back; and thighs and knees. For people seeking more dramatic results in more areas of the body, CoolSculpting specialists can use multiple applicators to treat multiple areas during one session.
CoolSculpting is also popular for treating larger fat pockets or fatty tissue on the abdomen or love handles (such as those created after pregnancy). By freezing away excess fat cells from these areas through cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting produces a smoother and slimmer silhouette.
For those who prefer natural treatments to slim down particular areas of their bodies – without going under the knife – CoolSculpting provides an ideal solution!
How long do the results last
But how long do those results last? The answer depends on a few different factors, including your lifestyle and genetics. After you undergo CoolSculpting, you’ll start to see visible results within two weeks. However, these results will be ongoing – most patients continue to see an improvement in their figures up to one year after their treatment session.
It’s also important to note that in order for the results to be maintained over time, it is essential that you stick to a healthy diet or healthy eating habits and maintain an active lifestyle. By continuing with a healthy lifestyle after your CoolSculpting procedure, you should be able to maintain your results over the long term and enjoy more toned and sculpted curves without additional sessions or procedures!
