Wanting to lose weight? If you've been researching all about CoolSculpting you must have already read more than once that CoolSculpting won't function as a weight-loss tool to help you lose pounds quickly, and maybe you are wondering why. CoolSculpting works to lose fat, but not weight. Confused? Let us explain how CoolSculpting works and the key difference between losing fat vs. losing weight.
First, let's talk about weight loss and the relationship with fat cells.
Fun fact of our body: the number of fat cells in an adult's body is typically a fixed number! Therefore weight loss isn't caused by getting rid of fat cells; in fact, when weight loss occurs the fat cells grow smaller. In a nutshell, the size of fat cells is due to how much energy from the food you eat gets stored into your fat cells. So, yes, bigger fat cells actually mean a not so flattering silhouette that requires some diet and exercise to burn more calories than the number of calories that you're eating every day!
However, if you already eat relatively healthy and exercise but still struggle with stubborn fat in certain areas of your body, then we can talk about what fat REMOVAL can do for you to achieve your body goals. No more bra fat, uneven thighs, bat wings, turkey neck or mommy pouch!
So, what does CoolSculpting do for my silhouette?
CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure. For this procedure, an aesthetic professional uses a device to freeze fat cells under the skin; once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gradually broken down and removed from the body by the liver. CoolSculpting works because fat cells are more sensitive to cool temperatures and triggers apoptosis (cell death).
CoolSculpting showcases a high success rate for removing areas of fat from the body and has fewer side effects than other procedures, such as liposuction. Once the fat cells are removed, they won't return or regenerate. Regardless, lifestyle and other factors may also play a role. We recommend keeping up your current diet and exercise routine to appreciate your full results. This doesn't mean you have to hit the gym everyday if you aren't already doing so, but try to keep up your current routine.
