Difference between Fat Reduction And Weight Loss – From A CoolSculpting Perspective

CoolSculptingIf you are considering a body contouring procedure to get rid of stubborn fat and achieve a more pleasing silhouette, there are some important things that you need to know about fat reduction.

Fat reduction is not the same as weight loss. Fat cells absorb the storage form of fat called triglycerides and expand when you gain weight. When you lose weight, your fat cells decrease in size, but your fat cell-count remains the same. If you constantly eat more than what your body needs to maintain its energy level – what’s called overeating – your fat cells will continue to expand.

The right diet and exercise regimen may help you lose weight, meaning that it can make your fat cells decrease in size. However, there is a limit to what these weight loss methods can achieve when it comes to fat reduction in some areas of the body such as the abdomen, waist and flanks. Excess fat in these areas often refuses to budge even with a rigorous diet and exercise regimen and would stand in the way of your body contouring goals.

Now what if there was a way to reduce fat cell count in these areas? The good news is that there is one – it’s called CoolSculpting. This procedure is making news as it effectively reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Fat cells that are no longer present cannot get larger.

The CoolSculpting procedure is different from weight loss surgery and other non-surgical weight loss procedures in three ways:

  • Fat freezing actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas
  • It does not change the fat cell distribution in untreated areas
  • Even with weight gain after the treatment, the fat is distributed more evenly all over the body

This FDA-cleared non-invasive fat reduction treatment makes use of special cooling technology to get rid of stubborn fat. A special applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the problem areas to freeze the targeted fat cells, which causes them to die. The destroyed cells are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. By toning key areas,

CoolSculpting makes you look slimmer and shapelier and your clothes fit better too. Outcomes are long-lasting as once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good. With the positive results that it offers, this novel treatment motivates people to take better care of themselves.
