Over the past few years, many of us experienced drastic life changes due to COVID-19 that gave way to stress and uncertainty. For some of us, that stress and uncertainty led to unexpected weight gain- a completely normal response to the unprecedented times we experienced.

Even though the pandemic and shutdowns have almost entirely left us, the consequences of covid-19 stress (a.k.a stubborn fat) begrudgingly remains. Despite a healthy amount of physical exercise, sometimes those troublesome areas need a little extra help.

A very popular and safe option to reducing fat cells is CoolSculpting.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, or Cryolipolysis, is a cosmetic treatment that freezes fat cells, causing them to die and exit your body.

You’re probably wondering, how does coolsculpting work?

During a coolsculpting session, cold temperatures freeze fat cells which then die. Over time, these treated fat cells are naturally eliminated by your body. Fat cells freeze at warmer temperatures than other surrounding cells, making it possible to isolate and destroy fat cells with controlled cooling.

Don’t worry! This means that your other healthy cells will not be affected.

The results from a coolsculpting procedure can take months to show full effect so patience with this treatment is required.

What Areas Of The Body Does It Target?

Each coolsculpting patient has different treatment areas in mind. A coolsculpting treatment area is completely dependent on what area of your body you would like to reduce the amount of body fat.

A treatment plan can be created to target areas of excess fat you want help tackling. Common areas of wanted fat reduction are the abdomen, thighs, love handles, arms, and back.

What Are the Benefits?

Unlike traditional liposuction, this cosmetic procedure does not require surgery. There is no need to search for plastic surgeons. The intense cold of coolsculpting has the power to kill fat cells without the need for incisions or scars.

In contrast to more invasive procedures, coolsculpting requires no recovery time! Because it is not a surgical procedure, you can immediately continue to live your life as you please after your coolsculpting treatments.

How Many Sessions Does It Require?

One mental barrier to starting this fat-freezing treatment is not knowing how many treatments coolsculpting requires. Once the fat cells reach their freezing temperature, they begin to die.

This rate is different for everyone.

The amount of treatments one goes through depends on each person and their goal of fat removal. CoolSculpting is a highly effective treatment despite its results varying from person to person.

The treated area can hold onto the effects of coolsculpting procedures with a healthy lifestyle of a healthy diet and exercise.
