CoolSculpting is touted as the next generation non-surgical and effective alternative to liposuction. It promises visable and long-lasting changes. CoolSculpting sounds too good to be true!
Supposedly, fat cells are very vulnerable to exposure to low temperatures. During your treatment these cells freeze, die and shed. This leaves you with a slimmer silhouette and a sculpted contour.
Why CoolSculpting is the perfect solution?
Offhand, it seems the perfect solution for those who can’t shake off the last few pounds of stubborn fat. Those troublesome areas that make us bulge in parts and looks as though our clothes had shrunk.
According to Vogue, the leading fashion magazine, CoolSculpting was first approved by the FDA in 2010. It recently gained attention when it was re-branded to a noninvasive alternative to liposuction.
It does seem as if there is hope on the horizon for people who can’t lose weight despite exercising and being on restricted diets!
Is CoolSculpting for me?
Some experts weighed in on whether CoolSculpting is truly worth every pretty penny or just hype.
To set the proper expectations, it is a cool tool if you just need a “tweak” but not the more extensive “overhaul” that liposuction offers.
It’s not for those who want significant weight loss in order to morph into the next Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner overnight.
CoolSculpting is definitely for you if you want to get rid of bulges (even that annoying double chin) a couple of months before your college reunion!
Do you want to look more slimmer and confident knowing that you can take a selfie from any angle without cringing or sucking in your muffin top? Sounds like CoolSculpting is perfect for you!
If you find yourself hiding half of your torso during photo-ops you must definitely consider this option!
According to the CoolSculpting site, this procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of bulging in the thighs, abdomen, and flanks. It’s also perfect for bra fat, back fat, and underneath the buttocks (the banana roll)!
