For as long as you can remember, you’ve practiced yoga on Sundays and Wednesdays. You go to the gym on Mondays and Fridays, and on Tuesdays and Saturdays you run 5K with your best friend. You eat right and even meal plan, but it doesn’t seem to make that stubborn fat on your trouble zones go away.
At Holladay Dermatology & Aesthetics in Salt Lake City, we understand the frustration that diet- and exercise-resistant fat causes, and we can help you eliminate it. Using cutting-edge fat freezing technology, we offer CoolSculptingⓇ treatments to bring you the shapely lines and body contours you dream about. With fat freezing, you can finally reap the rewards of those gym hours with a smoother, flatter abdomen, hips, and buttocks. We even perform CoolSculpting on your arms, thighs, and under the chin.
To help you decide if CoolSculpting fat freezing treatment is right for you, we’ve gathered these eight cool facts.
1. The idea behind CoolSculpting started with ice pops
The idea that fat could be frozen away without harming the surrounding skin started when two Harvard scientists observed that when children regularly ate ice pops, some developed dimples. They eventually determined that the cold from the frozen treats affected small pockets of fat cells in the children’s cheeks, eliminating it and leaving dimples behind.
2. CoolSculpting has built-in safety measures
While CoolSculpting isn’t the only fat freezing procedure on the market, it is the only FDA-approved fat freezing treatment that has built-in safety features. To ensure the equipment reaches the optimal temperature to freeze your fat but not harm your skin, the device has integrated safety measures that don’t allow it to get too cold or run too long.
3. It’s designed for permanent fat reduction
After a fat freezing procedure, your body eliminates the destroyed fat cells. Because adults do not regenerate fat cells, CoolSculpting is designed to bring you permanent fat reduction. As long as you don’t gain weight, your results remain. If you do gain weight, the fat cells still present in the treated area enlarge, just like the rest of the fat cells in your body.
4. Patients report a 95% satisfaction rate
Proven effective, CoolSculpting patients report a 95% satisfaction rate after their treatment. What’s more, the noninvasive procedure is rated the world’s No. 1 nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment. CoolSculpting has also won NewBeauty’s Beauty Choice Product Award in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2017, it was awarded the magazine’s Best All-Over Fat Fighter.
5. You can lose 20%-25% of stubborn fat after just one treatment
With just one CoolSculpting treatment, you can lose 20%-25% of the stubborn fat in your trouble zones. Once your body eliminates these fat cells, you’re left with a more contoured body profile, a slimmer circumference, and a shape you love.
6. It’s a discreet procedure
CoolSculpting at Holladay Dermatology & Aesthetics is a discreet experience — no one needs to know about it unless you decide to share. You come into the office for an hour, and after your treatment, you leave without restrictions or required downtime. And because your results develop over time, the transition looks subtle and natural.
7. Practitioners have performed over 6 million CoolSculpting treatments
CoolSculpting has become a worldwide phenomenon, and men and women across the globe have finally met their body-shaping goals with this amazing fat freezing procedure. Safe for all skin types and colors, CoolSculpting continues to gain in popularity with over 6 million procedures completed.
8. CoolSculpting results appear gradually
If you’re considering CoolSculpting for a special event that’s just around the corner, you should know that fat freezing doesn’t give you immediate results. Once your fat cells die, it takes time for your body to eliminate them. Significant results typically appear around two months post-treatment and continue to reveal themselves for six months.
