Body contouring, also known as body sculpting, comes in many forms. One of the most popular forms of body contouring is fat freezing. The procedure consists of using extreme cold to destroy the fat cells in the body. The cells are emptied of all their fat, and they are then emptied out through the body’s lymphatic system. Continue reading to learn about all the benefits of fat freezing and learn how to schedule your first appointment today.
How Does Fat Freezing Work?
Fat freezing goes by many names, but for the most part, they all work the same. A blast of extreme cold is used to target stubborn areas. The cold destroys fat cells and causes you to lose a few extra inches around the waist.
Fat freezing is not a weight loss method; it contours the body and removes fat from small, select, stubborn areas of the body. Fat freezing can be used for the love handles, the thighs, the neck, and the chest. The process is designed for those who are in relatively good shape; it is not designed for those who need to lose a surmountable portion of body fat. Despite the effectiveness of fat freezing, many patients will find that they require multiple treatments before they see the best results possible.
Body contouring at Elite Body Spa is not a surgical procedure; no openings will need to be made to have the process completed. You will see results no matter which part of the body the procedure is performed on.
A Closer Look at CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is the premier method of fat freezing at Elite Body Spa. It utilizes extreme cold to destroy fat cells. This is a good option for those who are very close to their target weight. In fact, most body sculpting is designed for people who are at the end of their weight loss journey. However, CoolSculpting® is able to zone in on targets with stubborn fat that didn’t respond to other forms of weight loss.
Liposuction vs. Body Sculpting
At first, due to similarities, it may seem that liposuction and body sculpting are designed for the same people. This isn’t true. Liposuction is designed for those who have an abundance of fat they wish to have removed. A good idea is to follow up liposuction with a form of body sculpting.
One of the biggest differences between liposuction and body sculpting is that liposuction requires a surgical opening to be made. A tube is then stuck inside the opening and the fat is vacuumed out. There is no invasion with CoolSculpting®. However, body sculpting may not be an option for those who wish to lose a considerable amount of weight.
The Ideal Candidates for Body Sculpting
People who have just had liposuction and wish to tone up their physique should look into whether body sculpting could help them out. Body sculpting could perfect the shape of the body after a large amount of fat has been removed. Certain types of body sculpting can even reduce elasticity of the skin, reducing the visibility of sagging skin after a large amount of weight has been removed.
Body sculpting is popular with those who are trying to get in shape for Summer as well. If you are someone who may have slacked off on their exercising in the Winter months, then body sculpting could be all you need to get back to your bikini body. Fat freezing and other forms of body contouring are able to target the exact areas you may want to show off during the summer on the beach. You won’t know for sure if fat freezing is right for you until you seek consultation.
