Who is a Coolsculpting Candidate?

Who is a good Coolsculpting candidate? This is a very common question when discussing this amazing procedure for fat reduction! On today’s blog we’re going to break down What we look for in determining who may be a good candidate for this non-invasive procedure.

Coolsculpting is based off the insight of Cryolipolysis, the idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue.

Despite diets and strict exercise regimens, many of us have stubborn fat that we can’t seem to make go away. Coolsculpting technology uses this controlled cooling to target and kill these fat cells, naturally eliminating them from the body in the weeks that follow.Cool sculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure.

Types of fat: To start…you must understand that there isn’t just one kind of fat and Coolsculpting doesn’t do a great job of treating every kind. So, we typically determine a good candidate depending on if they have “squishy fat” or “firm fat” known as visceral fat. Our ideal Coolsculpting candidate has squishy fat to treat in the desired area, not firm fat. Unfortunately, firm fat is the fat that can only go away through strict diet and exercise, or sometimes surgery.

Ideal Weight: While some people do use Coolsculpting as a jump start or motivation to lose weight, the best candidate is someone who is at their ideal weight and just has stubborn areas of fat that don’t seem to go with diet and exercise.

Permanent Results: Our bodies have a fixed amount of fat cells after we reach puberty that have the ability to expand and contract when we lose, or gain weight. As long as you maintain your weight and lifestyle, the results you get from Coolsculpting are permanent.

The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for Coolsculpting is to take advantage of our complimentary consultations where our experts can take a look and tell you if they think it will be worth the money for treatment. We’re also having a Coolsculpting after-hours event this Wednesday from from 6-8pm with a Lululemon Pop-up shop, champagne and more! Call our office today to RSVP. 910-256-4350
