At the Laser Center of Marin in Corte Madera, CA, we know that stubborn fat is difficult to treat on your own, which is why we want to let you know that you don’t have to do it on your own anymore. We offer Coolsculpting, a body contouring treatment that uses a scientific process designed by Harvard-based scientists to target and freeze stubborn fat so your body can naturally eliminate it. You’ll get tighter and more toned, and the fat will be gone for good.
Does CoolSculpting Really Work?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment that works according to a scientific process called cryopolosis. Once fat cells are frozen, they crystallize because they cannot withstand such cold temperatures, and as a result, they are destroyed. The body views destroyed fat cells as dead fat cells or bodily waste that needs to be eliminated.
The body eliminates that waste naturally over the course of several months, and as it does, your problem areas will improve as your fat volume decreases. It works, it delivers results, and those results are real, dramatic, and noticeable.
The Difference Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss
To better understand this treatment, you need to know the difference between fat loss and weight loss. Weight loss occurs when you exercise consistently and eat a healthy diet. When you burn more calories than you eat, you will lose weight. Weight loss is a natural process. It happens slowly yet steadily and it helps you become a smaller version of yourself.
However, one of the downfalls of weight loss is that it can’t always effectively target your problem areas. You can lose weight but still have areas of stubborn fat, and no matter how many pounds you lose, you cannot improve those problem areas. Also, when you lose weight, your body will shrink the fat cells in your body; they’re not permanently eliminated. You will have the same number of fat cells; they will just get smaller, which makes you smaller as well.
The Coolsculpting Difference
This treatment is so effective because it initiates a process that results in a bodily response that eliminates fat cells from your problem areas. Coolsculpting can do what your diet and exercise routine cannot. It can help you spot treat your problem areas so that you can reach all of your body goals in just a few months.
You won’t have to go on another fad diet or spend hours at the gym to reach your goals. Instead, you can continue living a balanced and healthy lifestyle, knowing that you will see some drastic results in just a few months.
What Is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment that uses cold temperatures to freeze and kill fat cells. The device is equipped with different treatment heads and cooling gel pads that are placed on the treatment area to freeze the fat cells, which crystallize them. The crystallized fat cells then die.
As those fat cells are eliminated, you get tighter, toned, and can reach your body goals. This is not a substitution for the gym or a healthy diet, but rather a way to enhance the results of your healthy lifestyle. It’s the perfect treatment for those pockets of stubborn fat that you can’t target with diet and fitness.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
When you undergo this treatment, you can expect to experience up to a 25% reduction in the total fat volume in your treatment area. That’s a significant amount, and it won’t happen all at once, but when it does, you’ll see a drastic improvement in your target areas. Your clothes will fit better, you’ll lose inches, and you’ll be able to finally reach some of the body goals that you may have thought were out of your reach.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This treatment can effectively eliminate fat from specific areas of the body, including some of the most common problem areas:
- Double chin (submental fullness)
- Jawline fat
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Banana roll (beneath the buttocks)
- Upper arms
At the Laser Center of Marin, we offer Dualsculpting, a technique that allows us to use two treatment heads to target two areas of the body simultaneously. The different treatment heads allow us to effectively target fat cells in larger and smaller problem areas, and we can do it simultaneously. If you have more than one problem area, we can help you achieve results even faster.
What Happens During a Treatment?
When you come in for your first treatment, one of our CoolSculpt-certified Registered Nurses or Nurse Practitioners will perform your treatment. All you have to do is simply lie back on a treatment bench in a comfortable position, and we will take care of the rest. The cooling gel pad will be placed on your treatment area, and you will feel an intense cooling sensation which will subside after a few minutes.
The entire treatment takes approximately 60 minutes, and you can relax, work, watch TV or read throughout the entire treatment. You won’t need any anesthesia since the entire process is virtually painless.
When Will I See Results?
Typically, patients see results within three to four months of their initial treatment. You will begin to notice results as your body eliminates the dead fat cells from your treatment area. For some, this happens within a few weeks of treatment; for others, it may take a little longer. However, you can rest assured you will see results, they may just take time as your body removes those dead fat cells, but you will notice your results once it does, and you will love those results.
Supporting Your Lymphatic System
One of the reasons this treatment is so effective is because it initiates a process that the body is already equipped to handle. Your body knows how to metabolize fat cells and flush fat from the system using different processes and your lymphatic system.
Like most things your body does, eliminating excess fat cells is precise and complicated, but your body knows how to handle it. However, helping support your lymphatic system after your treatment can help your body efficiently remove those fat cells.
Exercise helps support your lymphatic system in different ways. An exercise routine will help your lymphatic system operate smoothly as possible. Movement helps stimulate lymphatic flow, which will help support your body as it works to eliminate the dead fat cells from your treatment areas.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Another way that you can help support your lymphatic system and your Coolsculpting results is by eating a healthy diet. A healthy diet defined by moderation and balance is critical in helping you avoid weight gain after your treatment so you can maintain your results long-term. You can also add certain foods to your diet to support your lymphatic system, including low-sugar fruits, leafy greens, seeds, and nuts, among others.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The total number of treatments you will need will depend on the number of areas you want to treat and your ultimate goals. One of our experts can review your problem areas to help you create a treatment plan that will help you achieve those goals.
