While some exercises can target particular muscle groups, it’s sadly impossible to target specific areas of fat for weight loss through diet and exercise alone. But there is a way to “spot treat” areas of unwanted fat, like love handles, bra rolls and even the dreaded double chin with nonsurgical CoolSculpting®.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat-reduction device that works through a process called cryolipolysis. Your cosmetic surgeon will first choose the best size and shape of CoolSculpting applicator for the specific area(s) to treat. He can then “spot treat” those areas by applying controlled cooling technology to only those areas, freezing away unwanted fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue.
Most people see optimal results after 1 to 3 CoolSculpting treatments, each spaced at least a month apart.
Which Areas Can CoolSculpting Spot Treat?
One of the greatest benefits of CoolSculpting spot treatments is reducing unwanted fat in nearly any part of your body or face, including:
- Upper arms
- Submental (double chin) area
What Happens If I Gain Weight after CoolSculpting?
Healthy eating habits and regular exercise will help maintain your CoolSculpting results. However, when gaining a few pounds after CoolSculpting, you may notice the weight being more evenly distributed, rather than accumulating in one or two trouble spots like before.
