Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a cosmetic treatment that targets and destroys unwanted fat on your trouble spots. It’s most effective if you’re within a few pounds of your target body weight, but are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat on your trouble spots.

Most body sculpting treatments use either hot or cold energy to target and kill your unwanted fat. The team at Cosmetic Solutions uses CoolSculpting, an FDA-cleared treatment that freezes your unwanted fat. As your body removes the dead fat cells over the weeks following your treatment, you become more slim and toned.

What is the difference between fat reduction and weight loss?

Fat reduction treatments permanently destroy and remove your fat cells. These treatments are suitable if you are close to your ideal body weight and want to tone up a trouble spot. Fat reduction treatments won’t help you lose weight overall.

However, when you lose weight, your fat cells shrink. In order to lose weight you need to use more calories than you consume on a consistent basis, so your body has to draw energy from your fat reserves and shrinks them.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared body sculpting treatment that targets and freezes your unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting sends controlled cooling treatments directly to your trouble spots. As your fat cells freeze, their cellular integrity is destroyed, which kills the cells and allows your body to remove them through the lymphatic system.

CoolSculpting is safe. Though the equipment targets your subdermal fat, the delivery device includes a sensor to ensure the surface of your skin doesn’t get too cold.

Who is a good candidate for body sculpting treatments?

If you’re within a few pounds of your target weight, but are struggling to get rid of a trouble spot like a double chin, belly pouch, or love handles, body sculpting treatments could be right for you.

The treatment is approved to destroy fat on many trouble spots including:

  • Double chins
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Love handles
  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
