CoolSculpting® vs. Body Wraps for Inch Loss
We all want to look great and most of us want to lose inches of fat off our bodies. Forever Slender MedSpa offers two fantastic solutions to help our patients move closer to their goals – CoolSculpting® and slimming body wraps. What are the differences between them?
Let’s take these one at a time…
What is a Slimming Body Wrap?
Forever Slender MedSpa offers several types of Body Wraps:
Contour Body Wrap
Cellureduce Seaweed Body Wrap
These procedures above are different from one another and involve using a different body wrap procedure. All will provide results, tighten your body and make you feel great. If you have an event coming up soon and need to slim down fast, a body compression wrap or a series of wraps is the way to go.
Check out our body wrap video from our prior location (and displaying our old email address) before we moved to 109 Andrew Avenue in Wayland, MA. Body wraps tighten the body by detoxifying fat cells. By removing toxins from the body, your body is literally smaller and you can see why in the picture below.
Body wraps work equally for both women and men because everyone can detoxify their bodies. Women often come in looking to “fit the dress” or their bathing suits before a big event or vacation. We’ve also had active servicemembers of both genders coming up to their annual medical exams who need to reduce their waist circumference ASAP!
Forever Slender MedSpa staff have performed many thousands of body wraps, enabling our patients to go home feeling happy about themselves. Many of our patients come in on a weekly basis just because they value the peace and tranquility they feel during their treatment time. Another wrap benefit is that sometimes you can feel so good to be cocooned in our wraps you’ll even fall asleep for a few minutes.
Body Wraps are designed for inch loss, not weight loss, so proper expectations should be set. We will measure multiple areas of your body and we have long stated you will lose 3-15 inches off your first wrap or it will be free. Losing those inches is very normal and it is not just about losing water weight (see picture above). Body wrap results are immediate and there is absolutely no downtime.
How Long Do Body Wraps Last?
As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), the lost inches will stay off for at least 2 – 3 months. It's important to remember we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives in our daily lives through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies.
What About CoolSculpting®? How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® differs from Body Wraps in several key ways.
CoolSculpting® kills fat cells. Forever Slender MedSpa encourages a healthy lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise, but there is an inescapable truth – no matter how few calories you eat or how much you exercise, you can’t kill fat cells through diet and exercise! A solid diet with an exercise program can help shrink your fat cells but those cells will still be there.
Body Wraps do not kill fat cells, but those fat cells will shrink through detoxification.
CoolSculpting® is FDA Approved for many areas of the body and will kill about 20-25% of fat cells in the areas treated. Those cells will be flushed out of your body over the next 2-3 months through your body’s natural elimination processes. Both CoolSculpting® and body wraps are nonsurgical so you will get results with much lower risk.
CoolSculpting® results are permanent since they eliminate fat cells forever, but it won’t help you if you need to look great next weekend as the results take time. We have two CoolSculpting® machines so we can treat two areas at the same time – often called DualSculpting.
Forever Slender MedSpa has won many CoolSculpting® awards and have well over 1,500 treatments performed.
Curious how to know if you are a CoolSculpting® Candidate? CoolSculpting® works great for both men and women and we can customize the treatment to meet your areas of concern, whether abdominal or flank fat, bra fat, back fat or even moobs!
Nearly everyone who has fat to lose can be effectively treated by CoolSculpting®. The technology is brilliantly simple – kill fat cells through a cold temperature treatment at a temperature which does not affect surrounding tissues. The best candidates are generally within 30 pounds of their goal weight and have realistic expectations of their results.
CoolSculpting® is nonsurgical, meaning it is a lower risk method to eliminate fat with little to no downtime.
