CoolSculpting Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss Diets
CoolSculpting Fat Reduction vs. Traditional Weight Loss
At Rauch Wellness in Boca Raton, we see patients every day who exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet but who still have a few stubborn areas of fat around their flank, abdomen, and thighs. CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration for eliminating exercise and diet-resistant fat cells. CoolSculpting provides a fast, long-lasting way to achieve a noticeably slimmer profile and feel more confident in your appearance. There are no pills to take, no calories to count, no books to read, tasteless diet foods or shakes to consume.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is based on the principle of cryolipolysis and uses targeted cooling technology to freeze and crystallize fat cells. The frozen fat cells then die and are eliminated from the body. The procedure is non-invasive, so there is no downtime. In fact, you can return to work or other normal activities immediately after your treatment.
CoolSculptingvs. Weight Loss:
This procedure is not a diet or a type of weight loss surgery and is not a treatment for obesity. This procedure is meant to help those who are already at a healthy weight to fine-tune certain areas of their body for a more defined and sculpted profile. CoolSculpting can decrease the number of fat cells in the targeted area by 20 to 40 percent. The best part is that the fat cells are eliminated from the body for good. The results are essentially permanent as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. With traditional diets, fat cells may get smaller, but they are still there and will get bigger again if you happen to regain the weight. Traditional weight loss diets also do not allow you to ‘zoom in’ and focus on losing weight in certain specific areas of the body.
Who Is a Candidate for This Procedure?
CoolSculpting is suitable for adults of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and body types; however, it may be contraindicated in patients with certain blood disorders. During your initial consultation at our Boca Raton wellness center off Glades Road, Dr. Rauch will carefully review your medical history and current physical health to determine if this form of weight loss is safe and appropriate for you.
What to Expect WithCoolSculpting Treatment:
Top Delray Beach / Boca Raton wellness physician Dr. Rauch will develop a personalized treatment plan designed to help you reach your goals. The number of treatment sessions varies based on the patient’s individual goals and the number of areas being treated. Most patients, however, do achieve noticeable results after just one session. The treatment itself can be completed during your lunch hour. While you may notice the cold and a tugging or pulling sensation, any discomfort is normally minimal and well tolerated by most patients. This is one way in which CoolSculpting differs from traditional weight loss in that you do have short periods of discomfort prior to the site of treatment becoming numb.
The effects of the treatment typically start to become noticeable after about three weeks as the body begins to eliminate the unwanted fat cells and continues for up to four to six months following the treatment.
