With winter soon to wane and warm months shortly to be on the horizon, many people are already making an effort through diets and exercise to slim down in advance of the summer season. But, as we all know, fat is stubborn and diets and exercise do not always bring about the desired weight loss results. For some unlucky people, whether due to metabolism or some other factor, such measures can even seem to be an exercise in futility.
Some people who struggle with stubborn fat and excess weight turn to invasive alternatives to diet and exercise. There are surgeries and implantable gastric bands that can shrink the size of the stomach and/or restrict the absorption of calories, as well as implantable devices that send electronic impulses that trick the brain into believing the stomach is full. And there is liposuction, the most popular invasive weight loss procedure, which breaks up and sucks the fat from the body. While all of these invasive procedures can be effective at reducing fat and helping people lose weight, many people balk at the potential side effects and downtime.
Consider This Non-Invasive Fat Destroying Alternative
That’s why Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa offers its clients a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that works by destroying the actual fat cells inside the body, rather than by removing them with liposuction or by reducing their size through surgery or implants. CoolSculpting® eliminates diet- and exercise-resistant fat by freezing localized fat deposits. Once chilled for a short period of time in a process known “cryolipolysis,” fat cells crystalize and die. These dead cells are then slowly removed by the body’s own natural metabolic process over the next few weeks and months. The surrounding skin and tissue, meanwhile, are unaffected because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than other cells.
Attacking Excess Fat on the Cellular Level
The key to CoolSculpting’s® success is, like liposuction, the destruction of the actual fat cells. Everyone has a set number of fat cells, a number that generally gets established during adolescence. When people lose weight by traditional diet or exercise, or by calorie-reducing surgery treatments or implants, the reduced weight occurs at the cellular level with a corresponding reduction in fat cell size. The number of fat cells stays the same, but their size has decreased. Any increase in caloric intake can plump those fat cells right back up to where they were pre-diet, exercise or procedure.
Thus, CoolSculpting® is a fat loss treatment, rather than a weight loss treatment. Approved in Europe since 2000, and FDA approved in the U.S. in 2012, CoolSculpting® has an established track record with more than six million treatments performed worldwide. It can be used to treat visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen, flank, back and submental (chin) areas.
Tru Glō Medspa Offers Dual CoolSculpting® Treatment
If you have more than one area on your body that contains diet- and exercise-resistant fat, Tru Glō Medspa offers dual CoolSculpting® so that you can treat multiple stubborn fatty areas during one session. DualSculpting is the ability to utilize two CoolSculpting® machines at once.
An initial consultation with one of our specialists will tailor an individualized CoolSculpting® treatment plan designed to meet your goals by safely reducing problem fat pockets that are limiting your positive body image. Once in treatment the device—or two for those undergoing the DualSculpting—is strategically positioned and the controlled cooling slowly applied. During the treatment session you can read, surf the Internet, or even take a nap. Once the session is concluded, you can typically return to work or engage in normal everyday activities.
Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime or extensive recovery period. There are limited side effects beyond light bruising and numbness around the vicinity of the treated area. Thus, CoolSculpting® is perfect for people who want to avoid the downtime or are otherwise looking for alternatives to liposuction and other more invasive procedures.
