CoolSculpting® has been proven to be an effective fat reduction treatment that can be used on several different areas of the body, having been cleared by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010 for treatment on the upper arms, under the chin, the outer and inner thighs, the abdomen, flanks (love handles or muffin tops), the back and under the buttocks (dubbed a “banana roll”).
The human body has two different types of fat – subcutaneous (the “pinchable” fat just below the skin) and visceral (the “inside” fat that is stored around the internal organs). CoolSculpting® treats only the subcutaneous fat.
CoolSculpting® is an ideal solution to address smaller problem areas, like under the chin, due to the way it is able to target precise areas. One of these treatments takes around 35 minutes, with a typical result of an approximate 20% reduction of fat after just one session. Depending on the amount of contouring required a second session may be required.
Back fat is particularly annoying and challenging as it tends to be very resistant to diet and exercise, as well as often appearing in several different places, such as the armpits, underarms, lower back, or creating the notorious “bra bulge.” CoolSculpting® is effective on back fat and visibly reduces these bulges, resulting in a much more contoured back and upper body area.
CoolSculpting® has been shown to effectively reduce stubborn fat from the arms by using a specially designed applicator intended to adjust to the curve of the upper arm. This device is used to tackle frustrating fat stores that can be very difficult to reduce with healthy eating and exercise alone. It helps to lessen the appearance of those annoying “bat wings” that can make people so self-conscious that they choose to not wear sleeveless shirts. A CoolSculpting® arm procedure typically takes around 35 minutes for each arm; visible results can be seen after about four weeks, with the best results appearing after about two months.
Belly fat can be some of the most stubborn and vexatious of all the unwanted fat areas of the body. It becomes more problematic as we get older and very often once it’s there it’s pretty tough to get rid of. Scientific studies suggest that accumulating belly fat can increase the risk of certain medical conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. CoolSculpting® was especially designed to reduce stubborn fat, just like belly fat, which is why the abdomen is one of the most common areas treated. So, getting control over your belly fat is not only aesthetically pleasing it can also have a positive impact on your overall health. As well the benefits of having a more toned and contoured mid-section, the incentive to maintain the results is likely to result in the patient committing to a healthy lifestyle, with the long term benefits that would provide.
Love handles, those pesky bulges of fat that spill over the top of the waistband, are another very common problem that people – both men and women – seek to address when opting for a CoolSculpting® treatment. These treatments have proven to be effective in these particular trouble spots by reducing inches and increasing the patient’s self-confidence when wearing their favorite pair of jeans. Results can usually be seen after a few weeks, and extra sessions may be considered if more dramatic results are desired.
