Now that winter has come to an end, we all want to look our best for the spring and summer season ahead. Not only do we want to have healthy skin, but we also want to be in the best shape and feel good about ourselves. We have a special CoolSculpting event happening from March 15 - April 15. You are provided with a $750 CoolSculpting gift card when you come into the clinic, and it is valid until end of April to use (Min. 4 cycles to redeem).

Some of you may be new to CoolSculpting and wonder how it works. I know that for me personally, I would want to know all the details about a treatment and take a good look at the before and after photos before giving it a try. The science behind it plays a huge part in deciding if this is the right treatment for me. I will now share with you the most important things to know about CoolSculpting and why it is the perfect option for you if you are 15-20 pounds away from your goal with pinchable subcutaneous fat.

The science of cryolipolysis, the basis of CoolSculpting, was discovered after children who ate a lot of popsicles formed dimples in their cheeks. This was ultimately the reduction of fat. Studies were done on pigs back in 2008 to further understand how this works and the percentage of fat that was eliminated per session. In these clinical studies, cryolipolysis was shown to reduce subcutaneous fat at the treatment site by up to 25% after one treatment. An applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the target area. Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. This process removes the cells completely - and they aren't replaced by new cells, so they're gone for good. CoolSculpting was first approved by the FDA for the treatment of fat on flanks (sides) in 2010. Peak results are three months post treatment (you can start to see results as early as one month). You are encouraged to do your second treatment 4-6 weeks after the first one. Everyone needs at least two rounds of treatment to get results(95% of people).

Over 11 million treatments are performed worldwide. It's licensed to treat up to 10 different areas of the body including under the chin, bra fat, chest, upper arms, back fat, flank, abdomen, under the buttock, thigh, and knees. After the treatment is complete, a massage is performed for 2 minutes. This may feel like the most uncomfortable part of the treatment, but it is essential because it increases the results by 65%!

Most CoolSculpting procedures take about an hour per treatment area. It can be anywhere from an hour to four hours depending on how many areas you will be treating. During this period, the patient can relax and will have a healthy lunch provided if they have an appointment that will last 3+ hours. The great part about this treatment is that you can go on your phone, watch your favorite show, or even work on your laptop while you are eliminating stubborn fat. Something to keep in mind about CoolSculpting is that it isn't meant to make you "lose weight". What cryolipolysis does is destroy and eliminate fat cells from the body. Patients will look slimmer and their clothes will fit better on them. Results are not visible immediately; the destroyed fat cells are gradually cleared from the body in the coming weeks and months.

Things to do at home to enhance and maintain your results include:

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle                                                                             It's always good to get your body moving when you have a chance. This can include something as simple as going for walks frequently after meals (having a certain step goal per day), or taking the stairs instead of elevator. Carving out some time to go to the gym 3-4 times per week (even if it's for shorter amounts of time) can really make a difference in the long term.

Stay hydrated                                                                                                        Drink at least 2L of water daily. Water helps the kidneys to filter toxins and waste while the organ retains essential nutrients and electrolytes. Staying hydrated is a good way to avoid retaining waste, which may add a few extra pounds.

Massage the treated area                                                                                    This will help break down the fat cells and increase blood flow to the area. A manual massage can help reduce swelling and/or bruising that can be caused by CoolSculpting.

Following through with your treatment plan and having realistic expectations is very important when it comes to CoolSculpting. Photos are essential to track the progress before, during, after, and a few months following your final treatment. To maintain your results, it is key to adjust your diet to a more wholesome one. You will not only notice that you won't gain as much fat, but you will feel so much better inside and out.
