If you’re one of the millions of people who have tried diet, exercise, and everything in between to get rid of fat from stubborn areas like the belly and thighs, you might think your quest is hopeless. Luckily, there’s CoolSculpting at aNu Aesthetics™ & Optimal Wellness in Kansas City, Missouri! CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment that can freeze away fat from troublesome areas and leave you looking and feeling slimmer than ever.
Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting, though? In this article, we’ll take a look at how this treatment works and who it’s for.
What Is CoolSculpting and How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting is a body sculpting method that literally freezes fat and melts it away. It’s an FDA-approved procedure that’s proven to work, reducing fat in treated areas by as much as 25%. It works thanks to the fact that fat freezes at a slightly higher temperature than its surrounding tissue. By carefully calibrating the temperature in the applicator device used in the treatment, we can freeze fat cells, crystallizing them, without damaging anything else. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they will die off and the body will flush them out over the course of three to four months.
This treatment typically works best on the flanks (or “love handles), lower abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back. Some people use it on the chin and neck area, too. It is an effective means of getting rid of stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise.
Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
This method of body shaping is proven effective, but it isn’t right for everyone. You might be a great candidate for it if:
You’re Sick of Stubborn Fat
If you have bulges and areas of fat that won’t go away no matter how many situps you do, miles you run, or carbs you cut, this treatment might be a good option for you. It not only slims the treated area down but actually kills the fat cells themselves.
You’re at or Near Your Target Weight
Sometimes people have unwanted fat deposits even when they’re in tip-top shape. If you are at a healthy weight, this treatment might be a good option for you. It is not, however, a solution for those looking to lose weight for health reasons. If you want to drop ten, twenty, or thirty pounds, you should first consult with your physician and develop a weight loss strategy that will help get you to your target weight.
You’re Not Interested In Surgery
Liposuction is another option when it comes to body sculpting, but it’s an invasive surgery that requires significant downtime. This form of body sculpting, on the other hand, is non-invasive, quick enough to be done over a long lunch break, and requires zero downtime. If you’ve ruled out surgery as a solution to your stubborn fat deposits, this is a great option for you.
You’re In Good Overall Health
While this is a non-invasive treatment, is still a medical procedure. Be sure to inform your practitioner at our location if you have any chronic conditions or medical concerns prior to treatment.
Freezing your fat away might seem like science fiction or even magic, but it’s real, and it works. If you meet the criteria above, give aNu Aesthetics™ & Optimal Wellness in Kansas City, MO a call and set up a consultation!
