One of the most common questions we hear at Derrow Dermatology is “will CoolSculpting help me lose weight?” Keep reading to learn the answer.
CoolSculpting is Not a Weight Loss Procedure
Contrary to popular belief, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Instead of helping you shed unwanted pounds, it can reduce the size of your fat cells and allow you to get rid of unwanted fat bulges in your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and other parts of your bad.
CoolSculpting can help you achieve a slimmer, more toned physique. If you’re overweight or are looking for a way to lose weight, CoolSculpting is not a good option. This procedure is for men and women that are at or near a healthy weight and seeking a more sculpted body.
If your goal is to lose weight, our team can recommend a special diet and exercise routine or an alternative procedure.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting works by freezing away fat cells with intense cold. It uses a vacuum application to suction fat folds and expose them to temperatures that are above freezing. The applicator will crystalize your fat cells and naturally kill them.
Although you may experience an intense cold sensation, this discomfort is minor and will subside after a few minutes. Since CoolSculpting comes with virtually no downtime, you are free to resume and your other daily responsibilities immediately.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
The most noteworthy benefit of CoolSculpting is its ability to get rid of stubborn fat deposits without surgery. You can receive a CoolSculpting treatment on your lunch break and don’t have to worry about it disturbing your everyday life. CoolSculpting can help you feel more confident in and out of clothing and allow you to achieve the toned, athletic look you’ve always wanted.
