Dieting and going to the gym require a lot of commitment. Most people who have gone through the process of losing weight understand that it’s not an easy thing to do. If you have reached your ideal weight, you are to be commended because you have accomplished something spectacular. However, now that you have reached your ideal weight, are you happy with the way that you look? You may be surprised to see that even though you have lost a lot of weight, you are still dealing with excess pockets of fat around certain areas. If this is the case, you may be interested in learning about how CoolSculpting® has helped Austin residents make stubborn pockets of fat disappear.
Why Do Fat Pockets Hold On?
As you look in the mirror, you have likely asked yourself why these pockets of fat around your midsection, thighs, or buttocks hold on even though you are dieting and exercising regularly. A lot of it has to do with the way your body decides to break down fat.
When you diet, the number of fat cells in your body stays constant. The only thing that changes is the size of the fat cells. You may have extra fat cells or stubborn fat cells around your midsection, your buttocks, or your thighs. And the problem is that there is no diet routine that you can do that will specifically target these trouble areas.
In fact, you have probably noticed that as you lose weight everywhere else, the remaining fat in your midsection and other areas has become exaggerated. This is where CoolSculpting® steps in. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it is designed to remove the fat cells that are causing you trouble.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® works using controlled cooling. The basic principle behind this treatment is that fat cells in your body react to cold at a higher temperature than the other tissues in your body. During the treatment, the temperature of the treated area is going to be brought down to a point where the treated fat cells are damaged and then die. The other tissue surrounding the fat cells is left completely unaffected.
Over time, your body is going to absorb the cellular destruction left by the dead cells as well as the fat they have released. All of this is going to be removed from your body through your body’s natural waste removal process. The result is that the treated area is going to slim down.
