At Persona Medical Spa, we want to help you look and feel your best. To accomplish this, we are proud to offer CoolSculpting®, a commonly used treatment to remove stubborn pockets of fat which are resistant to diet and exercise. Although CoolSculpting® can be used to top off weight loss results for those who are at or very close to their ideal weight, it is not meant to be used for weight loss; it is a body contouring procedure.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a treatment that many men and women use as a safe, simple alternative to liposuction. It removes unwanted bulges from various areas of the body using specialized cooling techniques.
This treatment is becoming more popular than surgical fat removal options due to the lack of downtime, recovery and risks associated with the treatment. Another benefit to this treatment is the fat cells are not suctioned out of your body. Your lymphatic system processes them over the following weeks and months, so it looks like you are getting rid of the fat naturally.
Does It Help You Lose Weight?
Again, CoolSculpting® does not help you lose weight in the traditional sense. It helps your body eliminate fat. By the time you reach adulthood, your body no longer grows new fat cells. Your appearance changes along with weight gain when your existing fat cells expand. When you lose weight, your fat cells shrink.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Since CoolSculpting® is not a surgical procedure, it is a good fit for most people. It is an ideal treatment method for those looking for a non-surgical fat reduction alternative. It kills your fat cells and allows your body to flush them out, but there is nothing to stop your remaining fat cells from expanding if you consume more calories than your body burns, so it’s crucial you are able to maintain a healthy weight before considering this treatment.
