What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting After Weight Loss?

After months, or even years of self-dedication and determination, you finally did it—you’ve reached your goal weight. Whether you achieved this goal on your own or had a little guidance from our friends at our parent company The Hernried Center for Medical Weight Loss, you should feel a huge sense of accomplishment for all of the hard work and personal accountability you’ve put into your overall health and happiness. After all, weight loss is no easy feat; especially if you had a significant amount of weight to lose.

However, while reaching your ideal weight should be cause for celebration, you may find that your body doesn’t quite look or feel like you imagined it would. Rather than feeling proud of the hurdles you’ve overcome, all you can see are those pesky problem areas that linger regardless of your healthy lifestyle. If you are at or within a reasonable range of your goal weight, CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment at The Finishing Touch Medspa that offers numerous advantages to patients looking to take their weight loss results to the next level and finally reach their goals.

You Lost the Weight, Now Lose the Fat

Weight loss and fat loss may seem like the same thing, but there is actually an important distinction. Every adult has a set number of fat cells in their body that is established during their childhood or adolescence. When you gain or lose weight over the course of your life, you are not altering the amount of fat cells present in your body, but you are altering their size. Putting on weight causes this set number of fat cells to expand, in turn, also causing the body to expand.

The weight you lost through diet and exercise is what caused your fat cells, and figure, to shrink. But as you may already know, it is impossible to control where you lose that weight from or prevent it from returning with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is not a weight loss procedure, but a fat reduction procedure. While it won’t lower the number you see on your scale, CoolSculpting works to reduce the number of fat cells from a targeted region of your body by applying cold temperatures— about 14 degrees Fahrenheit— to gently freeze them to death. The treated cells are then naturally processed and eliminated by the lymphatic system gradually over several months, slimming down the treated area. The fat cells removed via CoolSculpting will never regenerate—meaning the results you achieve will be lasting so long as you maintain a stable weight.

Banish Stubborn Problem Areas For Good

Each individual carries their weight differently and has stubborn areas that are more challenging than others to tone. Weight loss has helped you to slim your figure overall, but even the healthiest among us can have pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to treat fat cells in nine different areas of the body commonly prone to storing excess fat, such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Back or bra fat
  • Side flanks
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Underneath the buttocks
  • Double chin

CoolSculpting allows you to reduce the number of fat cells from the most diet-resistant areas on your body. While it is still possible to gain weight after CoolSculpting, the new fat will not be stored in your treated regions. With less fat cells in your treatment areas, you can banish your most stubborn trouble spots for good and restore sleek and balanced proportion to your body.

Get Motivated

As with many things in life, it’s much easier to stick with something when you can see the positive results of your hard work and dedication. Weight loss journeys, in particular, are riddled with ups and downs; some weeks are easier to be healthy and active than others, and sometimes you just need to treat yourself. Even if you do everything right, it can often be discouraging when the number on the scale doesn’t drop, or a dreaded plateau occurs.

If a sudden lack of progress has disheartened you, CoolSculpting can provide the extra boost you need to rediscover self-motivation and get you excited about your weight loss journey once again. The results of CoolSculpting treatments develop gradually over three months as the body works to eliminate the dead fat cells naturally. Most people can expect to see a 20 to 25 percent reduction of fat in their targeted area and can optimize their results even more through their continued weight loss efforts.

Low-Risk, High-Reward Treatment

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical and non-invasive fat reduction treatment, meaning it carries considerably less risk than invasive surgical fat reduction procedures such as liposuction. With no anesthesia or incisions required, there is zero downtime required with CoolSculpting; meaning you can immediately resume your daily activities without anyone knowing you had anything done. The most common side effects experienced after a CoolSculpting session include mild sensations of soreness, tenderness or cramping—similar to what you might experience after an intense workout.

Since fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than the surrounding tissues, there is no risk of damage to the skin or other soft tissues with this treatment that may occur with heat-based fat reduction treatments. You can also enjoy even and natural-looking results without having to worry about skin-dimpling or rippling that often happens with liposuction techniques. In just a single hour-long session where you can read, browse the internet or even nap, you can drastically and safely enhance the contours of your physique without any pain or discomfort.

While the most challenging part of your weight loss journey may be over, pesky problem areas tend to stick around regardless of your healthy new habits and lifestyle. CoolSculpting at The Finishing Touch Medspa can empower you to put the finishing touches on your physique by targeting and eliminating the stubborn fat standing in the way of your ideal figure.
