Everyone likes to look and feel their best, but sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough to achieve the look you deserve. Many people find their efforts towards personal wellness thwarted by stubborn deposits of fat that seem to resist all efforts of removal. Fat deposits can disrupt your line, tarnish your overall aesthetic, and leave you feeling frustrated. If you have a strong commitment to your health plan and would like to learn how to erase stubborn fat, you might be a great candidate for CoolSculpting treatments from The Bougainvillea Clinique in Winter Park, Florida.
Erase Stubborn Fat
Diet and exercise allow us to lower our overall fat percentage, but sometimes it can be difficult to target the fat that you’d like to remove. When your body stores fat, it does so as a mechanism for survival and does not take into consideration how the deposits will affect your appearance. By itself, fat is not a bad thing and can even enhance your curves and improve your silhouette when it’s properly distributed.
However, it’s not uncommon for individuals to develop large fat deposits in targeted areas that ultimately leave them dissatisfied with their appearance. The discipline of following a good diet and the commitment to an exercise program is a fundamental part of any beauty regimen. Yet some people find that no matter what they do, they can’t seem to remove fat from their problem areas.
In some cases, their efforts even result in a reduction of fat in their curves while the target areas remain untouched. Fat deposits under the chin, for example, are extremely difficult to target through exercise. Wouldn’t it be great to target and erase stubborn fat deposits? Today you can, with CoolSculpting.
What Is CoolSculpting?
Our bodies run on a genetic program that is beyond our control, and that program includes instructions on where your body distributes fat. In our experience, almost everyone has a body feature that displeases them and seems to persist no matter what they do to remove it.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical form of body contouring that allows you to target and remove specific pockets of fat. The treatment is effective, painless, and FDA approved. We’ve found that many of our clients receive a tremendous psychological boost when they finally discover the means to take control of their appearance.
The frustration of dealing with an unwanted fat deposit over a long period of time can erode the motivation necessary to continue with a strict program. It is no longer necessary to learn to live with body features that displease you. Today wonderful body contouring treatments exist that can help you achieve the look of your dreams.
Freezing Fat Away
To understand the process at work with CoolSculpting requires a basic understanding of your body’s biochemistry. Your skin and other tissues are water-based cells, and your fat cells are oil-based cells. Water-based cells are much more resilient than oil-based cells and are better able to withstand fluctuations in temperature. The reason for this is that water has a higher heat capacity than oil.
Subjecting a target area of your body to cool temperatures for a prolonged period of time provokes cell death in subcutaneous fat cells despite having no effect on the surrounding tissue. Our clients have said that the sensation of the treatment can be compared to the feeling of jumping into a cold swimming pool. There is an initial shock, but then the body quickly adapts, and the rest of the treatment feels quite comfortable. In the days and weeks after the treatment, your body naturally flushes out the fat cells as waste.
Cryolipolysis is the scientific name for the process of removing fat through thermal conduction. The concept was first discovered when doctors Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein noticed that children who ate popsicles often developed dimples. After hundreds of clinical trials, the process has been improved, refined, and perfected. Today, body contouring is one of the most popular treatments for fat reduction and has earned FDA approval.
Although the treatment has come a long way since its inspiration, the fundamental principle remains the same. Consider that no child has ever complained of discomfort while eating a popsicle, and you’ll understand how safe and painless this body contouring treatment must be.
Virtually No Recovery Time
The non-surgical nature of this treatment is one of its biggest advantages. You can come in for a session during your lunch break and return to work afterward with none the wiser. One of the most important components of having success with a health and beauty program is learning how to establish a routine.
When exercise and good eating choices become a matter of habit, it’s easy to follow them without the need for extra energy to motivate yourself. However, missing even one workout can cause you to fall out of your habit.
With no recovery time for body contouring, you can continue with your regularly scheduled activities. We understand that you are a busy individual and that both work and family place significant demands on your time. Body contouring allows you to indulge in your personal health care while integrating seamlessly and efficiently with the rest of your life.
When Are the Results Visible?
The subtlety of body contouring is another feature that has made it very popular. Because the treatment relies on natural body processes, the results emerge gradually in the weeks and months following your session. It’s likely that your friends and co-workers will remark that you look better, but they won’t be able to identify what it is you’ve had done.
Most clients see the first results in as little as two weeks after the session, with the best results coming after two to four months. Many of our clients have reported that they enjoyed waking up in the mornings to gauge their progress as more and more fat is erased day after day.
As a secondary benefit, some of our clients have expressed that their daily improvement provided them with extra motivation in the gym. There is nothing like success to lift your spirit, and body contouring is a way to get the absolute maximum out of your beauty program.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed?
The treatment is effective at removing around twenty-five percent of the fat from a target area. If you have a special event coming up on the calendar, we can design a schedule of staggered treatments to ensure you’re looking your absolute best on your big day. It is important to leave an appropriate amount of time between treatments to ensure maximum effectiveness.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Applicators come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and we can treat virtually any target area where you have fat you wish to erase. Rest assured that you are not alone and that many other individuals have found success in removing unwanted fat deposits with body contouring.
Some of the most popular areas include the arms, neck, abdomen, thighs, and back. The treatment is also often recommended for treating Gynecomastia, commonly known as man boobs. If you have a stubborn fat deposit, we are confident that we can help you remove it.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The fat that is removed through this treatment is killed and does not return. However, if you undergo a period of weight gain post-treatment, it is possible that your body will again store fat in the same areas. With a commitment to your continued health and beauty, body contouring is a highly effective means of taking an unprecedented level of control over your body and achieving the look you’ve always dreamed about. Many of our clients incorporate body contouring as a regular part of their yearly beauty program, but fantastic results are possible in as little as one treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Before you go into any beauty treatment, it’s important to have a realistic idea as to what you can expect. This treatment is for contouring and is not as effective for massive weight loss. The best candidates are fit and healthy individuals who are dealing with stubborn fat pockets that seem to resist their efforts of diet and exercise.
Anyone who is curious about the treatment should feel encouraged to schedule a consultation. The consultation is our opportunity to gain your confidence, build a relationship of trust, and answer all your questions. We want to see you succeed in your beauty goals, and we’ll provide you with all the knowledge you need to ensure your success. We recommend that you bring in notes to your consultation because there is often a tremendous amount of information exchanged, and it is important that you get all of your questions answered.
What Is the Day of the Appointment Like?
On the day of your appointment, we recommend that you wear loose-fitting clothing as you might wear on your day off. If you are coming from work, it is best to bring a change of clothing so you don’t get protective gel on your work clothes.
During your treatment, you will be able to recline in comfort, surrounded by pillows. You can watch television, read a book, or operate a mobile device. Some of our clients find the treatment so relaxing that they even sleep throughout their session.
Once you are comfortable, we will place the applicators on your treatment area. Applicators come in all shapes and sizes and contain both a cooling element and a vacuum element. The vacuum element helps pull your subcutaneous fat to the surface where it can be cooled.
It’s important to remember that once the applicators have been attached, they cannot be removed until the end of the treatment. We recommend that you have a light meal before treatment so that you are comfortable throughout your time at the clinic.
Can I Bring a Friend?
No matter what your objective, a support group always helps you stay motivated and make progress towards your goals. We have many people who embark on their body contouring journey together. From the consultation to preparation to the final treatment, your journey to health and beauty can help to strengthen the bonds of your relationship.
We’ve seen friends, mothers and daughters, and even romantic partners come in together, share the preparation, and eventually leave the clinic looking and feeling absolutely great.
