Coolsculpting Love Handles

CoolSculpting Love Handles in Austin, TX

Ask around, and a common answer to what people like least about their bodies is “love handles.” Flanking both sides of the waistline, the fat in this area is famously resistant to diet and exercise in both men and women. Many people exercise relentlessly and severely restrict their diets in an effort to trim their love handles with very little success.

In these cases, CoolSculpting, a non-surgical FDA-cleared treatment that freezes fat cells to destroy them, may be the best solution. The soft, pliable fat typically found in love handles is called subcutaneous fat. This type of fat sits immediately below the skin’s surface and is ideal to be treated with CoolSculpting. There are no incisions or anesthesia involved with CoolSculpting love handles, and it is a much safer alternative to liposuction with no recovery or downtime.

The science the treatment is based on is that fat cells are sensitive to freezing cold temperatures and can be destroyed through a natural process called apoptosis. During the fat freezing procedure Austin Texas, gel pads are applied to the love handles and an applicator is moved over the skin administering the innovative cooling technology in combination with suctioning. This technique isolates the unwanted fat cells and gradually cools them to the point of freezing, which causes the cells to rupture. The body then naturally crystallizes and absorbs them over several weeks and months following treatment.

Results achieved with CoolSculpting love handles are permanent because the fat cells are eradicated completely. Results start to be noticeable 3-4 weeks after receiving treatment, but are more typical around the 3-month mark and the body continues to flush out the fat cells for up to six months. It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution, but it very literally sculpts the body. Even if weight is gained after receiving treatment, it will be gained in a more even manner and not concentrated in bulges or noticeable pockets of fat.

At Chilly Betty Med Spa, two CoolSculpting machines are used simultaneously to treat both sides of the waistline at once. Dual CoolSculpting, as this fat freezing procedure Austin Texas is called, delivers the treatment twice as fast, enabling clients to fit appointments into their busy schedules. Many people book CoolSculpting during their lunch hour and head right back to work!
