If you were to take a random poll on the street, asking people if they needed to lose weight or fat, odds are high that the majority of people would say both. But this is not always the case. In fact, many people who think they need to lose weight would achieve their ideal body simply by reducing a persistent fat bulge.
We get asked pretty often how a person can tell if they would benefit from CoolSculpting®, a non-invasive fat freezing treatment, or if they simply need to lose weight. So, we put together a few expert pointers to give you a head start before your personal consultation:
CoolSculpting Tip #1: You need to be able to pinch your fat.
For CoolSculpting to work well for you, you need to have pinchable fat. Pinchable fat is not to be confused with visceral fat, which is the more harmful type of fat that is internal, wrapped around your organs. A beer belly comes to mind as a perfect example of visceral fat. Pinchable fat is the pinch-an-inch fat that goes by common nicknames such as love handles, muffin top, bra fat, bat wings, saddle bags or a double chin. Technically called subcutaneous fat, this pinchable fat is harmless, though extremely annoying, because it defies diet and workouts. No matter how much weight you lose, pinchable fat seems to hang on. THIS is precisely where CoolSculpting comes in to shine. CoolSculpting was designed specifically to tame this pinchable fat. It freezes away targeted fat cells, and once your fat cells are flushed away by your endocrine system, they can never return. That’s why CoolSculpting is a lasting solution for fat bulges.
CoolSculpting Tip #2: You need to be close to your ideal weight.
How happy are you with your weight? If you are constantly battling with your figure and trying to shed pounds, you are probably better suited for a major lifestyle change like starting a medical weight loss plan and/or visiting with a nutritionist. Here’s why: CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. It’s an FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that can reduce targeted fat pockets on your body. While CoolSculpting can reduce fat, it does little to alter your weight.
The other main concern with weight is that if you go into your CoolSculpting treatments with an unsteady weight, meaning that you are gaining or losing weight, it can diminish your CoolSculpting results. CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment, so if your body contours are constantly changing due to weight fluctuations, it can be difficult to measure your results.
Bottom Line: CoolSculpting is an amazing fat reduction technology!
There’s a reason why CoolSculpting has remained the top fat reduction technology in the world! It works! CoolSculpting has helped millions of people to achieve their personal best, and there’s a great chance it can help you, too!
