Does CoolSculpting Lead to Permanent Fat Loss?
You can only perform extra workouts and follow a strict diet for so long before it starts to wear on your emotions, body, and mind. If you are discouraged because your exercise routine and diet plans aren’t getting you results, we have a solution. At Preventous Cosmetic Medicine in Calgary, Canada, we offer CoolSculpting sessions as a way to finally break through your plateaus, freeze your stubborn fat permanently, and get the body of your dreams.
Does CoolSculpting Lead to Permanent Fat Loss?
Once you undergo the optimal amount of CoolSculpting sessions necessary to remove stubborn fat cells, those fat cells will be gone for good and you will experience permanent fat loss. Once the fat cells in the treatment area die, the body naturally, permanently removes them. This treatment permanently removes the fat cells present in the treatment area at the time of treatment, but it cannot prevent the development of new fat cells due to weight gain.
If you end up gaining weight, new fat cells will form and may be distributed back into the area of treatment. You play a role in whether or not you gain any more fat cells that will damage your results. After your treatment, the fat loss that results will be permanent, but new fat formation through the expansion of remaining cells is possible if diet and exercise are ignored.
How to Maintain Permanent CoolSculpting Results
The most important part of maintaining your results post-treatment involves your lifestyle habits. You are the key to maintaining your results and keeping your body in shape so that you don’t gain weight, which will lead to the development of new fat cells and will destroy your results.
Eat a Well-Balanced Diet
Diet is vital to maintaining a healthy physique. Most people don’t realize just how important a role diet plays in how you look. That candy bar that you consume in a moment of craving and weakness contains a high amount of calories that will take you well over 30 minutes of cardio to burn off.
If your body is consistently bombarded with tiny, high-calorie foods, exercising all day long won’t be enough to compensate for all those extra calories.
Choose Nutrient-Dense Foods
The key to maintaining your physique lies in eating a healthy diet filled with nutrient-dense foods. You should focus on eating lean proteins like chicken, fish, lean cuts of beef or pork, and plant proteins.
Focus on getting enough healthy fat in your diet to maintain satiety and avoid cravings and blood sugar crashes. Some healthy fats include nuts, avocados, omegas, and olive oil, among others.
Gone are the days where fat is the enemy. Those low-fat diet plans that were born in the ’90s were loaded with sugars, which was and is the hidden enemy no one paid attention to until recent years.
Sugar does far more damage to the body than fat does and can cause the development of more fat cells over time. Limit the amount of sugar in your diet and try to replace simple sugars with natural or herbal sweeteners.
Keeping your body hydrated is an underrated necessity. Many people go through their day without drinking enough fluids, and caffeinated beverages do not count as cups of water because caffeine dehydrates the body.
Make sure that you are drinking enough water each day based on your weight and your activity levels.
Plan Your Meals
When you meal-plan each week, you will have a plan for each day so that you don’t end up grabbing whatever is easy since you don’t know what to make. Doing so will allow you to shop ahead so that you have all of the nutritious ingredients necessary to create healthy meals each week.
Creating meals that are low in carbs, high in healthy fats, and high in proteins will help maintain your blood sugar levels and will resist cravings so you can maintain your results.
Maintain an Exercise Routine
The key to exercising every day is to first develop discipline in your life, and secondly, to find an activity you enjoy. If you hate running, then find a cardiovascular activity that you like and aim to do that for thirty minutes or more each day.
Be sure to incorporate weight lifting into your routine so that you can build muscle and look tight and toned and enhance your CoolSculpting results.
Find an Accountability Partner
One of the easiest ways to maintain your exercise routine is to exercise with a friend. When you know someone is going to meet you at a class or the gym, you will be less likely to bail on them and skip your work out altogether. If you can’t find anyone to work out with, find someone who will be your accountability partner and help make sure that you are maintaining your workout schedule.
If you have the room in your budget, hiring a personal trainer is one of the best ways to secure regular exercise accountability. A trainer is someone who will push you past your limits, help you reach your goals, and encourage you to stay the course, even when it gets hard and you just don’t feel like putting in the work.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, revolutionary treatment designed to remove fat cells by freezing those cells so that they die. It was designed by Harvard scientists and works through a process called cryolipolysis. This treatment helps those who struggle with stubborn fat finally have a way to get rid of it by targeting it through a freezing process.
How Does It Work?
What Areas Does It Treat?
CoolSculpting can target stubborn fat in many different areas of the body. These areas include but are not limited to the inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, including both tummy and belly fat, love handles, also known as the spare tire or the muffin top, the arms, the fat that forms and creates a double chin, saddlebags, and any other stubborn lumps and bumps of fat on your body.
What Happens During Treatment?
During your treatment, a device head and cooling pad will be placed on your treatment area. As the cooling sensation begins, you will feel an intense feeling of cold that will last for a few minutes. Then, the treatment area will become numb and you can lay back and relax as the device does the work of freezing your fat cells.
One of the benefits of this treatment is that once the process begins, you can lie in a reclined or semi-reclined position and relax knowing that you are on the way to a slimmer, more contoured physique. Some people work remotely during the treatment, some bring a book or tablet, and others watch TV or use their phones. You can even spend the time catching up on your sleep and take a nap during your treatment.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Since this process relies on the natural elimination of fat cells from the body, by the body, it takes time. Some people begin to see results after a few weeks, but most people notice them between months one and three post-treatment. For others, it can take up to four months to see the results from their treatment once the body removes those dead fat cells from the treatment area.
You will see up to a 25% reduction of fat in the area treated. If you want to experience more fat reduction, you can schedule additional treatments in additional areas of the body to get even more results.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Some people see results after one treatment, while others require more treatment sessions to get optimal results. It all depends on how many areas you want to treat and how much stubborn fat exists in those areas. During your initial consultation, our experts will discuss your problem areas, and help you determine the best treatment plan that will give you the results you’re looking for.
Is There Any Downtime?
Surgical fat reduction procedures require downtime, however, this treatment does not. It is non-invasive, non-intrusive, and non-surgical. There is no downtime which means you can schedule your sessions at times that work best for you. You won’t need someone to drive you to and from your treatments and you can go about your daily routine once your session is over.
Is It Safe?
This treatment is FDA-approved and is completely safe. It has helped millions of individuals finally reach the goals that they thought for so long were out of their reach. It is a safe solution for spot treating fat, which is something you cannot do at the gym or on your own by following a diet plan.
Am I a Candidate?
If you have areas of stubborn fat that won’t respond to your diet, no matter what you do, and you just can’t seem to exercise them off, you are most likely a candidate for this treatment. If you are a healthy adult at or near your goal weight and want to spot reduce stubborn fat, this treatment may be the solution you are looking for.
During your initial consultation, our experts will help discuss and determine whether this treatment is right for you. To better understand this treatment, it is important to know who is not a candidate.
Who Isn’t a Candidate
Those who qualify as obese or are looking for a weight loss solution do not qualify for this treatment. CoolSculpting cannot remove large areas of fat. However, if you are obese and you are beginning a weight loss program, once you get to your healthy goal weight, you may qualify for this treatment as a way to further tighten and tone your body after your weight loss.
