Lets set the scene. You have been dieting, exercising, and you have finally reached your goal weight! You excitedly go to try on a pair of jeans that have been sitting in your closet for months, praying they fit. You pull them on, button, zip, done! All this to find, that sadly, your love handles are still present and hanging on your hips.
Love handles have proven themselves to be problematic for almost everyone. Love handles are made up of subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat is stored between the muscles and skin, whereas visceral fat is stored under the muscles and surrounding the internal organs. Though love handles don’t pose a significant health risk like visceral fat pockets, they are aesthetically displeasing and bothersome.
Visceral fat may be the real danger in terms of health but many studies have concluded that subcutaneous fat is actually harder to work off with diet and exercise. At Denver Vein Center, we understand that hard work doesn’t always cut it along the weight loss journey, that is why we offer CoolSculpting!
How Can CoolSculpting Help?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling elements to eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that is proven to kill fat cells once and for all! This procedure is perfect for anyone who wants to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat fast.
Is CoolSculpting Safe and Effective?
The answer to both of these questions is, yes! CoolSculpting is the number one non-invasive fat-reduction procedure in the world and 92% of patients that try this fat burning surgery, noticed a reduction of fat in the treated areas after one treatment! The procedure is also safe and approved by the FDA. The side effects include but are not limited to:
- Pulling, tugging, and mild pinching sensation
- Tingling, stinging, aching, or cramping at the treatment site
- Numbness at the treatment site
- Temporary redness/swelling
- Skin sensitivity
What Will My CoolSculpting Appointment Look Like?
CoolSculpting is easy and painless! The procedure can last up to 2 hours and patients are encouraged to relax, read, nap, or catch up on their favorite TV show. The technician will escort you to a private room where your treatment will take place. The CoolSculpting technology consists of two paddles that act like vacuums. Here are the steps of the procedure:
- The CoolSculpting paddles will be placed on the skin and moved across the unwanted fatty area.
- The paddles will lift the skin while simultaneously lowering the body temperature and freezing the fat cells.
- The cold will lower the skin temperature and cause numbness within the first 20-30 minutes.
