Coolsculpting first burst onto the scene in 2010. After receiving FDA approval, the world began to take notice of this revolutionary fat reduction technique. However, many people have wondered if it’s a technique that’s right for them. In order to answer that question, we first need to clarify a few things.
It’s not uncommon for people to believe that fat reduction and weight loss are the same thing. They’re not, and there’s a reason why. When we’re in the process of losing weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells we have remains the same. If we gain weight, the same number of fat cells becomes larger. The Coolsculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the areas targeted for treatment. Since those fat cells are gone, they’re also gone forever. As a result, you can feel thinner, your clothes will feel looser and you’ll feel better.
Bear in mind that Coolsculpting is not intended to be a treatment for obesity. Instead, think of it as an assist. If you’re putting the work in with exercise and healthy eating, but there’s still stubborn areas that don’t want to flatten out, Coolsculpting is an excellent option. The best part is that it’s individualized and our Loveland CoolSculpting office will create a plan that’s just right for you.
