There’s only so much that diet and exercise can do. You’ve probably been told by trainers, nutritionists, and even your GP that there’s no such thing as spot reduction, and that’s true if you’re only talking about working out and dieting. However, VIDA offers CoolSculpting, a revolutionary body contouring and sculpting treatment that is non-invasive and really works. Backed by science, CoolSculpting can take your fitness to the next level, help you break through a plateau, and give you a leg up when it comes to emerging from this pandemic looking your best.
The science behind CoolSculpting was discovered nearly 50 years ago when researchers found that kids who ate a lot of frozen treats had less fat in their face than their peers. It turns out that when fat is externally exposed to specific freezing temperatures, it dies. Those frozen fat cells are then absorbed by the body and expelled in the weeks following the exposure. Those fat cells never regenerate, but it’s important to remember that weight gain can still occur after CoolSculpting (or even liposuction). Nearby fat cells can grow and expand, so a healthy diet and exercise is critical to a successful and sustained CoolSculpting treatment.
Contouring vs. Fat Loss
Technically, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure even though clients typically lose a pound or two after their treatment is complete. It is a contouring and sculpting procedure that “freezes away fat,” although relatively few fat cells are removed. This means CoolSculpting is ideal for those at or close to their goal weight who struggle with problem areas. For example, if you’re fit but can’t seem to get rid of that lingering spare tire or if you struggle with “saddle bags” but are happy with the rest of your body, CoolSculpting might be for you.
CoolSculpting is meant to give you that extra boost that can’t be achieved by any other means. As a totally non-invasive procedure, it’s also an excellent alternative to liposuction for those who only have small areas to treat. CoolSculpting can be used just about anywhere on the body, from larger areas like the stomach to small areas such as under the chin. Most clients require 3 – 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results. You will start to see some progress after one month, with full results at six months. However, since this isn’t a “fat loss” procedure, it’s best to gauge your progress with how clothes fit or a measuring tape rather than with a scale.
