Moore_CoolSculpting_JulyYou work hard at the gym, getting to your workouts each week to spot target that stubborn fat in your problem area. Sometimes it feels like diet and exercise just aren’t enough. At Just The Right Curves we offer CoolSculpting, a ‘cool’ treatment to freeze away fat in 1 hour. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary contouring treatment for unwanted fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. Let’s discuss how this treatment works.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment for fat reduction. It is most useful for treatment of areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. The results are noticeable, proven, and long-lasting. CoolSculpting freezes and eliminated unwanted fat cells while you relax, enjoy a book or take a nap.  Done in roughly an hour, it uses controlled cooling technology. A treatment gets rid of 20-25% of fat in the area.

Where can it be useful?

CoolSculpting works by fat reduction. It reduces the total number of fat cells in the treated area. These fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body after the treatment. It’s most useful on areas such as the abdomen, the flanks—otherwise known as the lovehandles–and the thighs, which are commonly referred to as saddlebags.

How does it work?

CoolSculpting uses an applicator to apply cold to the fat at a temperature low enough to freeze fat cells. The temperature is not low enough to traumatize the overlying skin. This results in cryolipolysis, or the destruction of the fat cells. The damaged or destroyed fat cells are broken down and absorbed by the body’s immune system and taken away.

Are the results long lasting, and can I do it again?

During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable. Many patients opt for one treatment with CoolSculpting, but may also benefit from additional treatments depending on their desired result.

What are the benefits?

As a result, the benefits of CoolSculpting include a non-invasive treatment as opposed to invasive surgery. In addition you’ll experience no downtime after your treatment. The treatment only takes an hour or so, and during that time you can relax with a good book or a nap. You will start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells. Furthermore, it will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. This is not an alternative to diet and exercise, but it is a great alternative to invasive liposuction for a lot of patients. Contact us to take that first step to freezing your fat and looking ‘cool!’
