Debunked: 3 Myths Surrounding CoolSculpting

coolsculptingCoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure designed to get rid excess stubborn fat around areas of the body including the upper thighs, abdomen, arms, and buttocks. Having gained quite a bit of popularity in the past couple of years, CoolSculpting has many people skeptical because it seems almost too good to be true. And although nothing is perfect, CoolSculpting is a  procedure that is pretty close. This article will discuss three common myths surrounding CoolSculpting and the truths that will help you understand it more.

  • CoolSculpting is Ineffective
    Nothing could be more wrong about this statement. Because CoolSculpting doesn’t deliver individuals with immediate results the way that liposuction does, they often assume that CoolSculpting is procedure that doesn’t work. However, CoolSculpting is a scientifically proven, FDA approved procedure that effectively gets rid of excess, unwanted stubborn fat and delivers results that will blow your mind.
  • CoolSculpting is Temporary
    Although there are plenty of things out there that are temporary— tattoos, Botox, and even a lot of weight loss plans— CoolSculpting isn’t one of them. By permanently reducing the number of fat cells in the treated areas of your body, CoolSculpting is very much permanent.

However, just because it is permanent, it doesn’t mean that you can eat whatever you want and give up on exercise. In fact, your body still needs to eat a lean diet and exercise frequently in order to maintain its shape.

  • CoolSculpting Is Only For Young People
    Just because you may not be jumping into that itty bitty bikini anytime soon, doesn’t mean that you aren’t a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Coolsculpting isn’t just for young people in their twenties and thirties who are dying to get back into a bikini— in fact, CoolSculpting is great for healthy adults of all ages.

How Does CoolSculpting Work from the Inside Out?

CoolSculpting You may have heard of one of the newest, fastest, and easiest ways to get rid of unwanted and stubborn fat: CoolSculpting. Typically compared to surgical procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to get rid of areas of fat around your bodies like your upper thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms. Does it sound too good to be true? Does CoolSculpting give patients real results? To better understand this procedure, we have created an article that briefly discusses the science behind CoolSculpting so you can see how it works from the inside out. Read on to learn more.

How Did It All Get Started?

To be able to understand CoolSculpting, it’s nice to know how the concept was created and how it all got started. Years ago, two Harvard Scientists were observing a group of children eating popsicles. As the kids were eating the popsicles, the scientists noticed that little dimples were forming on their face. Later on, they discovered that those dimples were the fat cells in the face freezing because of the coldness of the popsicle, which made them want to further investigate how this same concept can be used to melt fat away from the rest of the body.

How Does It Work?

No matter how much you exercise or diet, you still may have stubborn areas of fat across your body. CoolSculpting works to target those individual fat cells and crystalize them with a freezing technology. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they will naturally fall off and be excreted through urine.

Does It Work?

There have been dozens of studies done on the effects of CoolSculpting, and they have all come back with positive results. In fact, even the FDA placed their seal of approval on CoolSculpting as an effective procedure.

CoolSculpting is a fast, natural and FDA approved way to remove fat from your body. If you would like to learn more about CoolSculpting or if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. York Yates, contact our office today!
