Bikini season is almost year-round in Tampa but some shy away from the beach because they feel too fat. Even those that exercise regularly and eat a lean diet may find that there are still pockets of stubborn fat that seem impossible to reduce. That is why it is called stubborn fat, it’s really difficult to erase once it settles in certain areas of the body.
However, a new technology has been developed to permanently reduce stubborn fat without requiring surgery or intensive dieting. Coolsculpting can freeze your fat away without harming the healthy cells and allow you to target those stubborn fat pockets.
Coolsculpting Works to Reduce Stubborn Fat
Coolsculpting is a revolutionary procedure that has been developed specifically to target areas of the body that store fat. It is FDA approved for removing stubborn fat like muffin tops, back fat, saggy bottoms, belly fat and now even to reduce fat thighs.
Coolsculpting is non-invasive and effective. There is no cutting, no cell damage, no hoses and no scarring. Developed by scientists at the Harvard Medical School, this patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process to kill fat cells under the skin, literally freezing them. Once the fat cells are crystallized they are eliminated from the body naturally.
The best part is that fat cells don’t regenerate. Once they are eliminated, they are gone permanently. Coolsculpting takes time for your body to eliminate the fat, but you will begin to look slimmer within 4 weeks after the procedure. Best results occur 60-90 days after the procedure is done. For even more dramatic results, the procedure can be repeated in follow up appointments.
What to expect in a Coolsculpting Treatment
The Coolsculpting treatment is done in a medical office setting by a team of well-trained experts. The process is simple and painless. The area to be treated is measure and marked up to determine the best applicator wand. Then the cooling plates are attached to the body while the patient gets comfortable. There is a quick cooling sensation and a little bit of a pinch as the applicators begin to work, and then the area becomes numb as the fat freezing process continues. During the procedure, the patient can read, watch TV or use their smartphone during the hour or two it takes per area treated. After the cooling wand is removed, the area may remain numb or tingly for a few days but the patient can return to work or activities without the need for any downtime. Within a month, the first noticeable slimming effects begin to occur but the final results may take up to 90 days. The result are permanent, provided that the patient continues with their normal diet and exercise program.
