Start CoolSculpting Now for a Swimsuit-Ready Body

Winters in Carson City, Nevada are a great time to hide behind your clothes, but all too soon the warmer months are upon us, which means that you’ve got to bring out your bathing suit again. If you’re hesitant to do so because of stubborn fat deposits that cling to your body despite your best efforts through diet and exercise, we’ve got the perfect solution — CoolSculpting.

At Tahoe Women’s Care, Dr. Gary Willen and our team offer an extensive suite of services that are designed to help women feel and look their best. So, when it comes to stubborn fat, we’ve equipped ourselves with an FDA-cleared technology that eliminates the fat right at its source — your fat cells.

Here’s a look at how, if you start now, you can be bathing-suit-ready by summer with CoolSculpting.

How CoolSculpting works

CoolSculpting relies on a process known as cryolipolysis — which basically means freezing your fat. With CoolSculpting, we cool your fat cells to disrupt their ability to store fat, which effectively destroys them. With CoolSculpting, we can eliminate up to 20-25% of your fat cells in any of the approved treatment areas, which include:

The procedure is completely noninvasive — all you need to do is sit back and relax while we position the CoolSculpting equipment over your target areas. You may feel a cooling sensation, but that’s usually the extent of any discomfort.

Each treatment takes less than an hour, and you’re free to get on with your day directly after your CoolSculpting treatment.

Why CoolSculpting is so effective

One of the primary reasons why our clients are so happy with CoolSculpting is that we’re able to bypass Mother Nature and target your problematic fat directly.

When you diet and exercise, you’re not in charge of where your body sheds the pounds, despite what many products and services may claim. The human body marches to its own biological orders, which include gender and genes. For example, women are wired to carry more fat around their reproductive organs to protect them, which means fat is tough to get rid of around your pelvic region (abdomen, hips, and thighs).

As well, you may be genetically hard-wired to carry more fat around your hips, for example, than others.

With CoolSculpting, we work around these forces by targeting your fat cells directly. In doing this, we can dictate your end results and recontour your body to meet your goals. But it’s important to note that CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss program, so you should be close to your target weight for best results.

The big reveal

Most of our patients need 3-5 CoolSculpting treatments for best results. We space these treatments out by several weeks to allow time for your body to process the destroyed fat cells. As you progress, you’ll see gradual results, with optimal results about 6-12 weeks after your final CoolSculpting session. So, if you start now, you can be ready by summer.
