CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure that freezes and destroys fat cells. This process, called cryolipolysis, has become a popular alternative to liposuction for slimming down problem areas—especially because it delivers dramatic results without downtime, scars or anesthesia. Let's take a look at three specific problem areas CoolSculpting® can effectively slim down.
1. Love Handles
It can be frustrating when love handles remain despite efforts to diet and exercise, and many patients think liposuction is their only option to get rid of that extra fat above the hips. However, CoolSculpting® is ideal for targeting localized fatty deposits such as love handles. The patented cooling process freezes and kills the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body over time.
2. Muffin Top
The buildup of excess fat around the waist can hang over the top of pants and create an unattractive pooch, or “muffin top.” For those who struggle with this unsightly problem area, CoolSculpting® is a wonderful body contouring option. One session of CoolSculpting® reduces the amount of fat in the target spot by an average of 20 percent in most patients, making cryolipolysis a perfect way to address the muffin top and get a slimmer, leaner waistline.
CoolSculpting® is a great option if you've noticed excess fat in your thighs. Even with a committed exercise regimen, developing definition in the thigh area can be particularly challenging, making CoolSculpting® a great option for creating sleeker contours through the inner and outer thighs. Because the fat cells that are crystallized by CoolSculpting® continue to be metabolized and removed by your body for months following treatment, you'll continue to see your figure slim down as time goes on.
