Losing weight takes a lot of effort, and you should be rewarded with the body you worked so hard to get. But some pockets of fat just won't budge even after hours of stair-climbing and thousands of situps and squats. If you’re looking for a little help, Nature Coast Healthcare Center in Tallahassee, Florida, offers CoolSculpting®, which is a noninvasive treatment that freezes the fat away for good. If you’d like to learn more about CoolSculpting, call the office or book an appointment online.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that gets rid of unwanted body fat. It’s not intended to be used as a form of weight loss but as a treatment to help you lose those last few inches.
It sculpts the fat from your abs and love handles, thighs, back, under the buttocks, and upper arms.
CoolSculpting uses a special cooling technology to freeze the fat away. The special cooling wand gently freezes the fat cells under your skin, causing the cells to shrink and die. Over time, your body gets rid of the dead fat cells through normal body processes.
If you have stubborn pockets of fat on your belly, thighs, backside, or arms, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. After a consultation and physical examination, the team at Nature Coast Healthcare Center determines if CoolSculpting treatment is right for you.
CoolSculpting isn’t meant to serve as a means to help with weight loss; ideal candidates should have a body mass index of 30 or less.
The CoolSculpting specialist at Nature Coast Healthcare Center places the cooling device over the area you want to target. Initially, you may feel intense cold as the laser works its magic, but the feeling is temporary, and after about five minutes or so, the area receiving treatment goes numb.
The entire process takes 30-60 minutes depending on the area you’re having treated. The treatment area may feel tingly immediately after treatment, but the CoolSculpting specialist massages the area to increase blood flow and reduce any discomfort.
One treatment may be all you need, but some patients come back for additional treatments for contouring and work on other areas of the body.
Following treatment, you should be able to go back to your usual routine. In fact, you can get your CoolSculpting treatment on your lunch break and go back to work.
Results aren’t immediate with CoolSculpting, but you may start to notice an improvement in your shape after three weeks. At around two months, you should start to see a dramatic difference.
Your body continues to flush out the dead fat cells for up to six months. And once those fat cells are gone, they never come back.
