For many, fat reduction means the same as weight loss. When talking to a doctor or scientist, they understand that the terms are closely related but are not the same. Simply put, losing weight will make fat cells smaller, but it will not get rid of them. Reducing fat means that you are shedding fat cells from the body. As we grow, fat cells grow and become a fixed number by the time we reach our late teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not affect the number of fat cells, but instead only changes their size. Dieting and weight-loss medication will help to make cells smaller.
CoolSculpting is designed to reduce the amount of fat cells in the body, not just change their size. CoolSculpting freezes fat on the body, and then within the next few weeks the body will naturally shed those fat cells. In many cases, patients can see up to a 25% reduction of fat cells in treated areas.
CoolSculpting is designed to work on individual parts of the body that have excess fat, including hips, chin, thighs, and forearms. CoolSculpting is non-invasive and requires no hospital stays or sedations. The process is also approved by the FDA. For more information on CoolScultping NYC, visit our medical spa in NYC.
