Melt body fat with a CoolSculpting procedure in Chagrin Falls, OH
If you have struggled with stubborn fat, Seriously Skin can help. Dr. Jennifer Kish offers the CoolSculpting procedure to patients in Chagrin Falls, OH, to target fat zones on your arms, belly, back, or thighs. CoolSculpting is a unique, non-invasive procedure that can get you the results your diet cannot within a few weeks, and because there is no incision, you will not have to take time off for recovery.
The fat freezing power of CoolSculpting
No matter how committed you are to your fitness program, some fat is harder to lose. Changes to your diet and exercise may prove fruitless because, as you age, your hormone production slows down, and your metabolism takes longer to process calories. Belly fat can be particularly stubborn because there is a higher concentration of beta fat cells, which don’t respond as quickly to the fat burning process in your body.
However, a CoolSculpting procedure can melt stubborn fat deposits in your body. CoolSculpting uses a targeted approach that freezes fat cells. When fat cells freeze, they crystalize. Your body’s immune system will take over, flushing the body fat from your system while leaving the skin and muscle tissue safe and healthy.
What to expect during your treatment
During the procedure, Dr. Kish will apply freezing temperatures to the target zone between two cooling panels. The panels will adhere to your skin with suction so that the cooling can reach fat cells beneath the skin. The procedure time depends on the area being treated and can take anywhere from 35 minutes to an hour, and you are free to read a book, check your phone, or simply relax while you wait. While you may experience pain and discomfort from the fat freezing, you should go numb within a few minutes. Some patients may have soreness, similar to a bruise, in the target area that lasts a few days.
You should begin to see results after about three weeks, and you will see continued improvement for up to six months after your treatment. CoolSculpting does not just shrink body fat—it eliminates it. As long as you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan, the results are permanent. Patients can expect to lose 20—25% of their body fat in the target area from a single treatment, and some patients may want to schedule additional treatment for further fat reduction.
Caring for your body after CoolSculpting
Studies have shown that a professional massage can give CoolSculpting treatments a major boost, helping it work faster and go further by promoting fat loss and lymphatic drainage. The best way to keep fat off your body is through routine cardio and strengthening exercises, preferably with a professional to make sure you don’t hurt yourself. You should also fill your diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and lots of water and avoid sugary treats and fried foods.
