Weight loss, or more specifically, fat loss, has been a coveted endeavor for decades. As new diets emerge and new tips and tools are marketed, people flock to the newest trend in the hopes of shedding pounds quickly and easily. While true weight loss involves a lifestyle change, you can try a few treatments to eliminate stubborn fat. You know, the love handles or extra cellulite that just won’t budge no matter how healthy you’ve been eating and active you’ve been. And guess what? It is very easy! So, keep reading if you’re looking for ways to lose stubborn fat without exercising or dieting.
Weight loss occurs when you burn more calories than you consume. Exercise is essential to help build muscle, maintain flexibility, reduce stress, and, yes, maintain a healthy weight, whatever that looks like for you. When we gain weight, you might think that our fat cells increase. However, our bodies have a certain amount of fat cells that will grow when we gain weight. They don’t multiply, but they expand. Now, these fat cells do not just disappear when we lose weight. They shrink in size as your body shrinks and tone as you lose weight.
But if we don’t lose the fat cells, they can stick around and expand whenever we’re eating too much or not exercising enough. When you do absolutely everything to lose weight, and you’re stuck with stubborn fat that won’t budge, you may need a little extra help.
CoolSculpting® is a popular non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that can aid in eliminating stubborn fat that’s difficult to lose, even with diet and exercise. It uses controlled cooling to destroy fat cells permanently. Your fat cells are frozen into a crystallized form. In turn, your body processes the frozen fat cells and permanently eliminates the dead cells from your body. It has proven results that really last.
When you’re ready, take the first step and schedule a one-on-one consultation with your practitioner. During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss your treatment goals and determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this innovative and effective treatment.
Considered a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting® can treat specific areas of stubborn fat, including thighs, stomach, bra bulge, arms, flank, and even your back. It is a permanent stubborn fat loss solution.
What to Expect with CoolSculpting® Treatment?
During a comprehensive consultation, your practitioner will mark where on your body you will be receiving treatment. Then, you will discuss a treatment plan and book your appointment. On the day of the treatment, a CoolSculpting® applicator will be used to target those stubborn fat areas by freezing the area for 35-75 minutes.
CoolSculpting® is very tolerable. Most clients feel cold at the treatment site, alongside some mild pinching, tugging, tingling, cramping, and possibly stinging. As the treatment area becomes numb, the discomfort subsides. After treatment, you may feel a little sore around your treatment site. The skin can be red, swollen, firm, bruised, blanched, or numb. These side effects are temporary.
You will notice results between one to three months after your treatment. The number of treatments necessary will depend on your body and your goals. After one treatment session, your body naturally eliminates the dead and frozen fat cells for four to six months after your treatment. Permanently removing those stubborn fat cells will make your body smoother and more sculpted around the treatment area.
After treatment, you can resume your normal activities, including work. Exercise is recommended in your post-treatment plan to encourage the continued elimination of fat cells.
How Much Fat Can I Lose with CoolSculpting®?
Curious as to how much fat you can lose with treatment? Most clients will see a 25% reduction of visible fat around the treatment area. The important thing to note is that this treatment is not a weight loss treatment or tool. While it does help reduce stubborn fat cells, it does not help you lose weight in a significant manner. CoolSculpting® should not be used as part of a weight loss regime. Instead, consider treatment after you’ve reached your wellness goal and still have difficulty losing stubborn fat. It is as if you’re literally sculpting your body. This will be most noticeable in how your clothes fit after your results appear.
CoolSculpting® is safe, effective, non-surgical, and produces natural-looking, long-lasting results. With minimal side effects and no downtime, CoolSculpting® makes getting rid of stubborn fat a breeze.
But let’s say you still have a bit of weight to lose before you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. Instead of a rigorous diet and relentless exercise routine, make a few minor adjustments to your day, such as:
- Eat more fiber. Fiber helps aid digestion and supports healthy gut health. By keeping you “regular,” you can eliminate toxins, reduce inflammation, and maintain a healthy weight.
- Find time to walk. If you don’t have time for an exercise routine, look for various ways to walk. For example, if you go to the store, park furthest from the front door, so you have a nice walk to get into the store.
- Enjoy more protein-rich foods like eggs, nuts, avocados, and lean meats. Protein helps you feel fuller longer but also aids in muscle building.
- Drink water. Incorporating more water into your day shouldn’t feel like a diet or a “chore.” Your body relies on water for so many processes. Your skin relies on water to stay hydrated. Try to drink water throughout your day.
