Before we tell you what it is, it’s worth pointing out what CoolSculpting doesn’t do. If you’re looking for a quick-fix weight loss procedure, CoolSculpting isn’t for you. Here at Cambridge Clear Beauty, we feel that the ideal CoolSculpting candidate ticks all the following boxes:
- Is within 20-30 pounds of their ideal body weight
- Is on a healthy diet
- Is on a regular exercise regime
Why is this?
Because CoolSculpting is designed to help people with moderately healthy lifestyles who have areas of their body where the fat won’t shift no matter what they do: the upper abdomen areas better known as ‘love handles’ or ‘muffin tops’, for example.
CoolSculpting doesn’t suck out the fat, like liposuction: it simply destroys fat cells, and allows your body to naturally metabolise them.
It’s a precision instrument, not a Band-Aid
As the name implies, this procedure is designed to ‘sculpt’ areas of your body that regular activity can’t touch, and is not suitable for people indulging in an unhealthy lifestyle. For starters, if you’re piling on the calories after a CoolSculpting treatment, the fat you’re trying to get rid of will simply join the queue with the new fat cells you’re taken on board.
Furthermore, due to the nature of the treatment (the CoolSculpting equipment uses suction to pull on the treated area and position it between two cooling plate), it isn’t suitable for the excessively obese. If you can pinch more than a couple of inches in the area you want to treat, it’s going to be very difficult to get that area treated properly.
So, in short, if you’re thinking of using CoolSculpting in order to lose weight and keep it off, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. If you’ve embarked on a healthy, exercise-back regime and are looking for a little help in knocking off some rough (or wobbly) edges, look no further than CoolSculpting.
