How do you know if you are a CoolSculpting® Candidate?
By now you have probably heard a lot about CoolSculpting® in Wayland, MA. – maybe you know of friends who were treated or have seen advertisements for this permanent fat reduction technology on tv. You’ve been told CoolSculpting® has transformed the bodies of millions of people around the world and wonder if you’ve missed the train to Slenderville - destined to remain unhappy with your body.
CoolSculpting® kills fat cells. Given our name – (Forever Slender MedSpa) you know we are all about encouraging a healthy lifestyle of a 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!
If that’s upsetting to hear – we agree! The sad reality is calorie reduction will only shrink your fat cells but won’t eliminate them. This is true whether you are slightly reducing calorie intake through a diet or flat out starving yourself. Exercise works the same way – a walk will shrink fat cells, marathons will shrink more fat cells, but neither eliminate fat cells from your body.
What that means is even after eating right and exercising yourself into oblivion, those fat cells are still hanging out there waiting to grab lunch from a holiday or birthday party, your morning latte or that cheat snack you didn’t tell anybody about yesterday!
CoolSculpting® will kill about 20-25% of fat cells in the area treated and those cells will be flushed out of your body over the next 2-3 months, meaning there will fewer fat cells left waiting to engorge themselves by grabbing bits of your next taco salad!
If you have walked around Forever Slender MedSpa in Wayland, you’ve already seen our CoolSculpting® awards and credentials with over 1,500 treatments performed. You also know since we have two CoolSculpting® machines we can perform DualSculpting – treating two areas at the same time, but how do you know if you are a candidate for this life changing service?
Is CoolSculpting® just for women – or just for men?
Men and women can both slim down through this FDA Approved, fat freezing process. As you will note in the graphic, the FDA has approved this fat cell elimination technology.
There are other areas - “Above the Knees” for both sexes and the chest area for men which have not been fully evaluated by the FDA but are also effectively treated by CoolSculpting®.
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 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.
