Finish Off Your Weight Loss Journey With CoolSculpting

It’s a feeling that many experience during their fat- and weight-loss journey. After months and weeks of diet and exercise, you’ve lost a good amount of weight and have seen fatty areas contract. You know you’re on the right track, and you’re feeling healthier and more confident. Then you hit it – the plateau.

Although not a technical medical term, the plateau is real. Your current routine may have run its course. Your body itself may also be fighting against you – your body likes to maintain a stable weight, also known as a set-point weight. Many people struggle to lose fat in their stomach area specifically. If you’re dieting and exercising, but can’t seem to lose that stubborn bulge around your middle, you may be a candidate for CoolSculpting. This noninvasive fat reduction treatment can help you achieve the body you desire.

If you think you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting, come see us at Stoll Dermatology. David Stoll, MD and the rest of our team are ready to help you with any dermatological needs. Dr. Stoll is a Nobel Prize-winning doctor who will work with you to create a custom treatment plan for eliminating those stubborn fat areas.

What is CoolSculpting?

First, a little biology. When you gain weight, your fat cells expand. To accommodate this growth, your body also expands. When you eat healthy and exercise, fat cells shrink, and you look slimmer. Although this is good, the fat cells remain and continue to take up space.

These same fat cells in your body freeze at a higher temperature than your other cells. CoolSculpting uses this to its advantage. During the procedure, targeted cooling is utilized to crystallize and freeze about 25% of the fat cells in the area you wish to treat. After the cells are frozen, your body naturally passes them through your waste.

Am I a good candidate?

To be clear, CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss tool and is not meant for treatment on obese individuals. Instead, CoolSculpting works best for people who stay healthy and fit, but still struggle with pockets of stubborn fat. Many patients choose the treatment as a noninvasive alternative to liposuction.

Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, nonsurgical fat reduction treatment of its kind. Over 4 million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed. Perhaps one of the best things about CoolSculpting is its long-lasting treatment and results. You’ll start to see improvement after three weeks, and your body can continue to reduce fat cells for up to six months after your treatment session.

The fat cells removed by CoolSculpting are permanently removed. If you continue to exercise and eat well, fat will not return to the treated areas.

CoolSculpting is truly noninvasive.

Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after a treatment. Many people elect to get their treatments during their lunch break and then return to work. Although you may notice some cold, tingling, tugging, pulling, and mild pinching sensations during treatment, the area eventually becomes numb, and you no longer feel these effects. Severe side effects are rare and typically diminish on their own within days or weeks. 

If you’re living a healthy lifestyle, but still struggle with stubborn fat, CoolSculpting could help you get the results you want. Call or book an appointment at Dr. Stoll’s Beverly Hills office today.
