We all have a few areas of our bodies that stubborn fat bulges seem to accumulate on, and no matter what we do; whether it’s a new diet, a water fast, or boot camp, those more replete areas just won’t budge. It is only by reducing the fat cells in those persistent areas that you can make a big difference because although, after dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller, the number of fat cells stays the same.
Losing weight does not make fat cells go away. However, cryolipolysis is an excellent way to achieve that goal, so how does it work and what does Coolsculpting cost?
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
Losing or gaining weight does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of the fat cells. When weight is gained, it is because extra lipids consumed in the diet need to be stored somewhere, which causes the fat cells to become enlarged. The old notion of burning fat isn’t referring to reducing the fat cells themselves, but rather using some of the lipids in the cells for energy thus reducing the overall size of the cell. This is one of the reasons that weight loss is hard to maintain, as the cell is always ready to uptake more lipids and grow again if we fall off the diet wagon.
CoolSculpting is one of the leading non-invasive fat-reduction treatments available here in the UK. It’s a brilliant and innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat. It involves no surgery and minimal downtime, you can quite literally lose fat during your lunch hour and be back to business almost straight away. CoolSculpting shapes your body by freezing the unwanted fat cells, which are gradually destroyed and eliminated from the body through the natural lymphatic drainage process. Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
When the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good, however, we do recommend a balanced lifestyle and exercise plan to ensure the longevity of your new shape as the remaining fat cells will behave as normal after your treatment. The CoolSculpting applicator is placed over the unwanted bulges and left on for about 35 minutes. During this time, you can rest, read, watch TV, check your emails, or even take a nap. After the applicator is detached, your technician will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction.
Where can CoolSculpting be applied?
The procedure is currently used for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the chin area, bra fat, abdomen, arms, flank (love handles), inner and outer thigh, underneath the buttocks, under the chin, and above the knee. During the treatment, you may experience some sensations of pulling, tugging, pinching, tingling, aching, cold, or cramping. These sensations subside within a few minutes after that the area becomes numb.
Temporary side effects after treatment include redness, aching, itching, bruising, tenderness, and blanching but the treated area soon restores back to its usual appearance once the procedure is completed.
