Reduce Fat With CoolSculpting


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment used to reduce fat by using a cooling technology to target the fat cells and reduce the fat layer. CoolSculpting can produce incredible results. Here are a few things you should keep in mind:


  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. While CoolSculpting tones and defines the body, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to guarantee long-lasting results. Most people decide to get CoolSculpting treatment after first trying to lose weight through dieting and exercise, which should continue post treatment.


  • The second time may be the charm. One treatment results in a 20-25% fat reduction, and each treatment after results in about the same amount of reduction. Therefore, some people find that two treatments provide the greatest results.


  • Comfort. The treatment can be uncomfortable for the first 5-10 minutes, while the vacuum is grabbing the skin and fat. Many people find that the remainder of the treatment is not bothersome and they are able to relax.


  • Recovery time. You may experience minor soreness and tingling (much like the feeling after a difficult workout) for a few days following the treatment. This discomfort will subside and should not affect your ability to go about your regular day.
