If you are a resident of Salt Lake City who is unhappy with stubborn pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet or exercise, you should consider a CoolSculpting® treatment. Techniques like ultrasound, lasers, and radiofrequency can help to eradicate fat, but CoolSculpting® has been around longer and is better researched.
How It Works
CoolSculpting® is most appropriate for the treatment of small, localized pockets of fat like love handles. The treatment utilizes special rounded paddles that come in a variety of sizes. These paddles create a suction effect on the skin in the treatment area. As the paddles become colder, fat cells underneath them will crystallize and be destroyed, leaving surrounding skin tissue completely unaffected.
This type of treatment is non-invasive and extremely relaxing for most patients, who usually read a book, watch TV, or even take a nap while the process is ongoing. In the weeks following your treatment, your body’s own natural healing abilities will start removing and disposing of the destroyed fat cells. Since fat cells never regenerate, they are gone forever, although you could put on additional weight due to the expansion of existing fat cells after your treatment if you overeat.
What It Treats
A treatment involves the application of a special vacuum suction applicator that treats areas of pliable fat found between the paddles. So it is limited to areas of fat bulges that will fit between the paddles, including:
- Double chin
- Abdominal or back fat
- Enlarged male breasts formed by fat
- Hips, inner and outer thighs
This technique is well-suited for precisely targeting fat cells while leaving surrounding skin tissue unaffected. It is not for the treatment of cellulite, although other types of treatments can be utilized to stimulate the production of collagen and improve cellulite appearance. You can even combine your CoolSculpting® treatment with a radiofrequency treatment to achieve your goals.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment in Salt Lake City?
CoolSculpting® is certainly good at what it does, but it is not for everyone. This treatment was created for those who are seeking to lose stubborn fat that is unresponsive to changes in exercise or diet. It should not be considered as a substitute for healthy weight loss.
The best candidates for CoolSculpting® are those who are in good overall health, within around 25 pounds of their ideal body weight, have distinct fat pockets with regular borders, and have healthy, elastic skin.
