CoolSculpting is a revolutionary treatment for men and women of all ages and body types looking to eliminate some extra fat. However, many people believe they need to lose weight on their own before their appointment to get the best results from their CoolSculpting treatment. This is not the case.
Generally, people who hold this belief feel CoolSculpting will be more cost-effective and noticeable if they go into the treatment at a more “ideal” weight. However, the truth is that CoolSculpting reaps impressive results for people of all body sizes and shapes. Our article breaks down this myth and why a lengthy weight loss journey is not necessary to see excellent results from CoolSculpting.
The Role of Fat Cells
Most people believe that the number of fat cells in your body can fluctuate throughout your life as you gain and lose weight. However, physiological research has determined that the number of fat cells present in the body is fixed during adolescence. The only instance in which your body creates new fat cells after adolescence is with moderate to severe obesity, which causes body fat levels to exceed the person’s natural frame.
When you gain weight, the fat cells already present in your body expand. On the flip side, when you lose weight, the same fat cells shrink, causing them to occupy less space and reduce your body volume. Due to the specific process that CoolSculpting treatments follow, you’ll see significant results whether your fat cells are expanded or shrunk. Therefore, it’s unnecessary to undergo any significant weight loss before your CoolSculpting treatment.
How the CoolSculpting Applicators Work
The reason so many people see excellent results with CoolSculpting is simple: it’s the work of the applicators and the technicians wielding them. The best CoolSculpting applicators can address both large and small fat pockets with equal intensity and efficacy.
Suppose there’s a particular spot on your body in which your fat cells are more expanded than other parts. In that case, your CoolSculpting technician can spend more time on that area, sculpting it and reducing any bulkiness. There are also multiple types of CoolSculpting applicators designed to work for specific body types and sizes. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about losing weight before your CoolSculpting treatment.
How Can I Make CoolSculpting Work for Me?
We’ve already determined that losing any amount of weight before your CoolSculpting appointment is not necessary. However, most physicians recommend a generally balanced diet and regular regimen of moderate exercise both before and after your CoolSculpting treatment to see the best long-term results.
