CoolSculpting Myths Debunked

CoolSculpting Myths Debunked

What is CoolSculpting and does it work?

Yes, CoolSculpting really works because it actually demolishes the fat cells by freezing them away forever! 

As the holiday season fast approaches, maintaining a chiseled figure is at the forefront of every beauty-conscious mind. How else would someone have the self control to say no to all of the delicious holiday treats? But what can you do this year to keep your body from gaining the dreaded holiday weight? You can always try the classic weight loss routes: a strict diet, consistent, vigorous exercise, fasting, juice cleanses, Keto diet… the list is never-ending. However, if you’ve tried the traditional route but still can’t shake those last few pounds, you’re not alone – but good news! There’s something you can do about it.

What is CoolSculpting? CoolSculpting is an innovative method that freezes the fat cells in those stubborn areas that aren’t seeing results from the traditional methods you’ve tried before. More and more people are choosing to add CoolSculpting to their beauty regimens to help transform themselves into sculpted and healthy bodies year-round. As with any new ingenious treatment, people have questions. Revive Med Spa in San Diego is here to debunk the myths in order to help you collect the right information and see if this treatment could be beneficial to you!

 1 – It’s an alternative to weight loss.

MYTH.

Although CoolSculpting is an effective fat loss method, it is not meant to substitute weight loss efforts. The CoolSculpting process works best when paired with a diet and exercise routine conducive to maintaining a healthy weight. CoolSculpting results are most beneficial for those who want to sculpt away those last few stubborn pounds in order to achieve their dream figure. However, it should not be used as the sole method for weight loss.

2 – It’s painful.

MYTH.

In fact, the entire CoolSculpting process is virtually painless, although you may experience some discomfort in the days following your session in the form of bruising and tenderness. Because CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment, you don’t have to worry about knives or needles penetrating your skin. The CoolSculpting device simply glides on the top layer of your skin as it works its magic. Some mild discomfort may accompany the intense cold feeling of the device and pulling and pressure may be experienced throughout the session, but not real pain! 

 

3 – CoolSculpting can harm your skin.

MYTH!

In fact, CoolSculpting is an extremely precise procedure in which both the medical professional and the device are equipped with extensive safety knowledge. The device is able to detect the temperature of different areas of your body and will adjust accordingly so as to avoid causing any damage to the skin. Because skin has a higher water content than fat cells, it does not freeze as quickly as the fat does. Though the skin may feel cold, the CoolSculpting process will not affect any other tissues permanently.

4 – You will see results immediately after treatment.

MYTH.

 Each CoolSculpting session takes about an hour to perform, but the process takes a few weeks to happen in your body. The initial treatment is when the fat cells are frozen. However, your body still needs to metabolize the now-dead fat cells and flush them out through natural processes (like, peeing!). The frozen cells break down into fragments, which then need to be absorbed by other cells in order to go through the elimination process. This means that you will see CoolSculpting results in the weeks and months following the treatment.

5 – CoolSculpting is used on the stomach area only.

MYTH!

While the treatment can absolutely help you achieve your slim stomach goals, it can also help chisel other parts of your body. Popular areas for CoolSculpting patients include thighs, love handles, arms, and the under chin area. Since the treatment involves freezing fat cells, it can essentially be applied to any area of the body in which fat cells are present.

So, how does CoolSculpting really work?

Now that we’ve debunked the myths, let’s dive into CoolSculpting facts. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction method that freezes fat cells. During the actual sculpting session, patients may experience pulling and intense cold, though many people nap or read a magazine during treatment. The fat cells in the CoolSculpted area then crystallize and are metabolized and naturally released through your body. This reduces the amount of fat in the CoolSculpted areas. This means you can sculpt your body the way you’ve always wanted to with virtually no pain involved.

CoolSculpting is a great option for freezing away those last few pounds so that you can keep your best body this holiday season.
