It was only a few months ago when many people sat down to make their resolutions for 2020. Often, those include commitments to looking and feeling better. The unspoken detail of fitness resolutions is often this: “I will achieve this by summer.” Why? Because summertime is when we want to sit by the pool with our friends and family without feeling self-conscious of our abdominal pooch. It’s the time we want to wear shorts without our thighs rubbing together. It’s time that men want to take their shirts off or wear lighter clothing without feeling embarrassed about enlarged breasts. You may have other reasons for wanting to achieve your fitness goals by summer. The point is, if you’re not there yet, you may be getting frustrated. We have a solution for that: CoolSculpting.
What is Coolsculpting?
CoolSculpting is neither about weight loss nor about fitness. It is the in-between. This FDA-cleared device is about enhancing body contours by stimulating the body’s natural elimination of fat cells. It works by freezing them. During a CoolSculpting treatment, you sit back comfortably as the device is placed over your target area. The tissue is suctioned up into the device. This holds it securely and also brings more fat cells into the area to be targeted. While tissue is in place, the applicator temperature is turned down to nearly freezing. At the precise temperature, crystals form in fat cells while the skin and surrounding tissue remain unaffected. This process can up to 25% fat reduction.
What Does This Have to Do with Fitness Goals?
To get into shape takes time, something many of us struggle with. When we commit to eating well and exercising, we want to see some results. Often, results aren’t as easy to achieve as we imagined they would be. When the body doesn’t change much in response to our new habits, we may lose heart. Losing a heart could affect our attitude and motivation. This is a great time to have CoolSculpting!
CoolSculpting won’t bring about a change on the scale, but it is proven to change a person’s shape. You can have this treatment performed on your midsection to complement all those crunches you’ve been doing, or on your thighs to maximize the results of squats and other exercises. Additional areas that can be treated with CoolSculpting include the back/bra line, backs of the arms, under the chin, and banana roll under the buttocks.
