When you first embark on a weight-loss program, you’re usually rewarded with gratifying results that you register both on the scale and in the mirror. But most people inevitably hit a weight-loss wall that blocks your dieting and exercise efforts to shed those last stubborn pockets of fat. Take heart — you’re not alone, and we have a solution.
Here at Florida Cosmetic Center, with Dr. Arash Pasha at our helm, we offer a wide range of products and services that help our Celebration area clients look their very best. From anti-aging techniques to body-contouring services, we have you cosmetically covered from head to toe. And when it comes to tackling those last deposits of fat, we have just the tool you need in CoolSculpting®.
Here are just three of the many reasons why CoolSculpting® is a beneficial way to decrease your body fat.
If, like many, you’re frustrated by your inability to shed fat in certain areas, the reason for this may lie in your gender. Men and women are biologically wired to store fat in specific areas according to their needs. For women, this includes the area around their reproductive organs, which means the belly, thighs, buttocks, and hips. Men are more geared toward muscle and end up storing extra fat around their midsections only.
Of course, no matter your sex, if you take in far more calories than you burn, your body will use every available area to store the excess energy as fat. But when it comes time to shed this excess, your body is in charge of deciding where, often passing by the fat in the areas where you want it least.
With CoolSculpting®, we can directly target these stubborn pockets of fat, bypassing Mother Nature’s directives entirely. Whether it’s your abdomen or your upper arms, we can reduce the fat in these areas by targeting these specific fat cells.
One of the benefits that our clients really enjoy is that CoolSculpting® is noninvasive. The cooling energy travels beneath your skin, without harming the surface area, to freeze the fat cells below. While you may feel a little chill during your treatments, that’s about the extent of your discomfort, and nothing a sweater can’t cure!
Before this technology was available, the closest we could get to targeted fat reduction was through liposuction. While effective, this procedure is surgical, with some downtime afterward as your body heals. With CoolSculpting®, you simply come in for your treatment and get on with your day when it’s over, without skipping a beat.
Another great benefit to our CoolSculpting® system is that it permanently reduces the number of fat cells in your target areas. Throughout your adult life, you generally carry the same number of fat cells, and every time you gain or lose weight, your existing fat cells increase or decrease in size, respectively.
With CoolSculpting®, we destroy some of your fat cells through a process called cryolipolysis. Once your body flushes out these damaged fat cells, it doesn’t regenerate new ones.
This is not to say that the remaining fat cells can’t still increase in size again though. So you do have to maintain your new body shape through healthy eating and exercise.
If you’d like to explore the many other benefits of CoolSculpting® in reducing your body fat, please give us a call or use the online scheduling tool to set up an appointment. Most patients undergo 3-5 CoolSculpting® treatments for maximum effect, so now is the time to get started.
