Fat—this tiny word carries the weight of the health, hopes, and happiness of so many and presents a formidable and frustrating hurdle. If stubborn deposits of fat are standing between you and your dreams, new technology in the form of CoolSculpting® can help.
At Tahoe Women’s Care, we pride ourselves on offering realistic and evidence-based solutions that help our clients meet their cosmetic goals. After much research into the growing field of fat-reduction technology, Dr. Gary Willen and our team settled on the CoolSculpting system, which offers a wide range of benefits, five of which we review here.
One of the more frustrating aspects when it comes to weight loss is that you have no control over where your body sheds the fat. There are many products and services that claim to be able to reduce fat in certain areas, but these claims are patently false. Your body is solely in charge of your fat loss, and it follows a much higher directive — biology.
With CoolSculpting, we can gain the upper hand on biology and target fat cells in specific areas with our applicators. These applicators deliver the cooling directly into your targeted fat cells, freezing and destroying them.
We want to point out that CoolSculpting shouldn’t be considered a weight-loss tool — you should get to within your target weight beforehand. Where this technology excels is in addressing those stubborn fat deposits, so you can better show off your efforts.
Once you enter young adulthood, your body has the number of fat cells it will carry for the rest of your life. When you gain weight, your body doesn’t create new fat cells, it simply expands your existing ones. The same holds true for when you lose weight — your existing fat cells shrink in size, but not in number.
With CoolSculpting, we can reduce the number of fat cells in your treatment areas by up to 24%.
Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is a noninvasive technology, as the energy passes harmlessly through your skin and targets the fat cells below. You may feel some cooling during your treatment, but that’s the extent of it.
Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, there’s no downtime after your treatments, which means you can resume your normal activities right away.
Better still, you can use the time you’re receiving your CoolSculpting treatments to catch up on emails or reading.
CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA to treat those areas that most people struggle with, including:
With CoolSculpting, we can recontour the most problematic areas of your body, giving you the leg up you’ve wanted to meet your body-sculpting goals.
