Unwanted Body Fat

Everything You Need To Know About CoolSculpting in Liberty

It’s the start of a new year, and you know what that means — new year, new bod. You may have told yourself it’s time to finally get rid of that extra pudge that never seems to go away, and we think that’s great!

While no aesthetic treatment can replace the numerous benefits of going to the gym, gyms at the start of the year can be super crowded and crunches can be super tedious (let’s not ignore the unfortunate “abs under flab” phenomenon). The new decade calls for a fresh way to get rid of fat. Instead of trying to burn fat away, it’s time to freeze fat away…for good. 

So what’s the perfect solution? We have one word for you.

CoolSculpting. 

CoolSculpting® in Liberty is a revolutionary way to freeze and kill fat cells to help you get the lean body you’ve been wanting. Our medical professionals at AesthetiCare Liberty have performed countless successful CoolSculpting procedures. To get you one step closer to your dream body, here’s everything you need to know about CoolSculpting before you schedule an appointment (and you’ll definitely want to).

Let’s talk about fat, baby

Before you can understand how CoolSculpting works, it’s important to know the basics of how fat cells work. So first, a little myth busting. Despite popular belief, no matter how much time you spend on the treadmill, you’re not actually burning fat cells. 

Keep it cool, we’ll explain. 

From the time you’re an infant to about your mid 20s, the number of fat cells in your body increases. But once you hit your mid 20s, you really don’t gain or lose anymore. Basically, if you’re noticing some extra fat, it’s not because you have more fat cells; it’s because the fat cells you do have are getting bigger. 

💡Note: There is an exception to this. Fat cell count may increase if you gain a significant amount of weight. 

There are different types of fat cells, but white fat is the cause behind that unwanted inch you hate to pinch. Before you write them off as the enemy, know that white fat is there for a reason. Outside of storage, these cells are important for regulating blood sugar levels by pulling out excess sugar from the bloodstream. Too much fat, though, can throw off that sugar-regulating function. 

The size of your fat cells can be genetic, but it is also influenced by how much you’re eating versus how much energy you’re burning. When you eat too much, the energy that isn’t used gets stored in your fat cells, causing them to balloon. 

Traditional methods like diet and exercise can help shrink fat cells, but you won’t be able to target where it happens. Plus, those methods won’t ever get rid of those cells, making it harder to keep the weight off. Shrunken fat cells stick around, waiting for any reason to plump back up. 

That’s where CoolSculpting comes in. It doesn’t just shrink fat cells; it kills them once and for all. 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting in Liberty is a branded version of cryolipolysis, which is a technique that uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells. Once those fat cells are gone, you never have to worry about them coming back! 

As a bonus, CoolSculpting can be performed almost anywhere, including your:

  • Chin
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Muffin top
  • Upper Arms
  • And more!

A brief history

The history of CoolSculping is definitely interesting (hint: it involves popsicles). In 1970, Harvard scientists noticed that kids who ate popsicles lost fat in their cheeks. Coined “popsicle panniculitis,” the phenomenon led to the discovery that lipid-rich fat cells were more susceptible to cold injuries than the water-rich cells that surround them.

So you may be thinking, “What does that even mean?”

It means that CoolSculpting targets and destroys fat cells without damaging the tissue that’s around it, giving you a safe fat-loss solution.

How CoolSculpting works

Unlike other fat-reducing techniques like liposuction, CoolSculpting is an effective method that doesn’t require surgery or other invasive procedures! 

Your excess fat is sucked into a cooling device that freezes and kills fat cells. A built-in safety feature shuts down the device if the skin gets too cold, ensuring your safety throughout the treatment. 

Depending on the size of your treatment area(s), a CoolSculpting treatment may take anywhere from 35 to 75+ minutes. 

Benefits of CoolSculpting 

No anesthesia, no incisions, no downtime

CoolSculpting is an innovative fat-reducing treatment that doesn’t require you to go under the knife. Procedures like liposuction come with painful recovery times, and you’ll be forced to take off work. With CoolSculpting in Liberty, you’re in and out of the office and can go back to your regular activities!

Targeted fat loss, real results

Let’s face it — you can try to target your fat loss at the gym, but that’s never going to work. Exercising can help tone muscles and reduce overall fat, but it’s genetics that decides where you lose the fat, not you (we know…not fair). But CoolSculpting targets specific areas, so if you want to get rid of those love handles, CoolSculpting can help!

So long fat, see you never

Since CoolSculpting actually freezes and kills fat cells, the cells can’t resurrect themselves; they’re gone forever. In the following weeks after your procedure, your body will process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. #RIPFat

For people young, old, and anyone in between

All ages are welcome to enjoy the benefits of CoolSculpting. If you have a little excess fat you’re tired of looking at, then the procedure is for you. However, keep in mind that CoolSculping doesn’t tighten loose skin. 

Goodbye, low self-esteem

CoolSculpting finally gives you the body you’ve been wanting. Sometimes, stubborn fat just doesn’t go away, no matter how many hours in the gym you put in. It’s time to be proud of your body, and CoolSculpting can give you a much needed self-esteem boost!

Frequently asked questions

Does CoolSculpting actually work?

Yes! We wouldn’t be raving about it if it didn’t. You may not notice results right away, but that’s because it takes time for the body to process the dead fat cells. At AesthetiCare, our CoolSculpting procedure eliminates up to 25% of fat cells in the treated area(s). You can see results as early as 30 days, with peak results at 120 days.

💡Note: You may need to come in for multiple sessions to maximize your results, and results vary from person to person. 

Is CoolSculpting safe?

Of course, but you shouldn’t go to anyone who offers CoolSculpting in Liberty. AesthetiCare Liberty has an experienced team of medical professionals who are experts in performing safe and effective CoolSculpting procedures. 

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

Nope! Initially, you may feel some intense cold, but that feeling usually goes away within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. You may also notice some pulling, tugging, or mild tingling sensations. Either way, you won’t experience any kind of intolerable pain. 

What results can I expect?

Since CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, the biggest benefit you’ll find is long-lasting, permanent body sculpting. As time passes, the treated area(s) will be more toned and noticeably slimmer than it was before. For more stubborn areas, you may need multiple sessions to get the results you want. 

💡Note: CoolSculpting may not be as beneficial for people with large amounts of excess fat. It works best for people who are close to their target weight and need help with stubborn fat. 

Is CoolSculpting permanent?

Yes it is! Once fat cells are destroyed, there’s no way for them to come back. Keep in mind that the fat cells that are left can still grow, so you always want to maintain a healthy diet and workout regime. 

Is reducing fat the same thing as losing weight?

Not necessarily. You can lose weight without losing fat (i.e. water weight). The scale may tell you you’re smaller, but the amount of fat on your body says otherwise. On the other hand, fat reduction via CoolSculpting ensures that you get rid of fat. You’ll look smaller, even if the scale stays the same. 

Can I do cryolipolysis at home?

Honestly? You can, but it won’t work. A lot of DIY cryolipolysis options involve ice or other frozen materials. You may think that applying something super cold to your skin will do the same thing, but cryolipolysis isn’t that simple. Instead, you’re just freezing your skin…not your fat. Plus, trying it at home could lead to frostbite, numbness, and even permanent tissue damage (not good). It’s best to leave it to the professionals. That way you get great results with little to no risk.
