At Anew You in San Antonio, we understand that sometimes even the best of diets, rigorous workouts and self-discipline won’t always result in the body you want. While problem areas and stubborn pockets of fat or cellulite are normal, we want to help you achieve the best look possible- with as little downtime as possible. Allow us to introduce you to one of our favorite, non-invasive procedures, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq.
Whether you’re already aware of the revolutionary treatment, or you’ve never heard of it until today, we are ready to show you exactly how great CoolSculpting can be for your stubborn, problem areas… and freeze away any CoolSculpting myths, once and for all!
1. CoolSculpting Replaces a Weight Loss Program
Actually, not so much. In fact, CoolSculpting wouldn’t even work on clients with excess fat to lose through normal weight loss diets and exercise programs. Because the treatment is a non-invasive process that freezes fat, it works ideally on clients who have small areas they would like to change. Nothing can replace a healthy routine of exercise, mindful eating and activity.
Once, however, the excess pounds are shed, the remaining fat cells can be successfully treated with CoolSculpting- helping you to achieve that look you are working towards.
2. Only Stubborn Belly Fat?
Of course not! The beauty of CoolSculpting is that it is effective anywhere you have stubborn pockets of fat cells. From your stomach to you love handles, muffin top and thighs, CoolSculpting is the perfect treatment- with no down time- to help reduce fat and help get the body you are aiming for.
It is important to note however, that CoolSculpting does not fix or effect loose skin. While there are many treatments that will successfully repair the sagging skin- either by age or dramatic weight loss- CoolSculpting is specifically designed to target your fat cells in your body.
3. Instant Body Beautification?
While some things in life are best served hot and “right here, right now,” we prefer our fat cells to take their time breaking down. The good news is you really don’t have to wait too long.
The typical time to see true results ranges from 6 weeks to 3 months, with many clients continuing to see positive results still changing, 6 months out. With a treatment such as CoolSculpting, where the fat cells are actually frozen and then eliminated from your body, it is easy to understand why this is not an instant-result process. Many clients seek additional sessions to enhance the already amazing results they are beginning to see, and enjoy the natural- and permanent- look of their newly shaped silhouettes.
4. CoolSculpting Is Painful
Absolutely not… and far from it! With only a sensation of intense cold, CoolSculpting is one of the most successful treatments for fat reduction that is non-invasive and non-surgical. In fact, it is quite common for clients to handle business via their phones, read a book or even catch a quick wink or two!
And just like any disruption to your body, there may be mild soreness or tenderness for a few days following the treatment, but nothing more and quite similar to the feeling the day after a great workout.
Dr. Sherry & her team of technicians are with you along the entire process from start to finish to ensure you receive your desired results. So get ready to say GOODBYE to those love handles, double chin, flabby arms, and little stomach bulge.
