There are few things more frustrating than doing everything right when it comes to getting the body you want, only to be stopped just short of the finish line by stubborn pockets of fat that seem to mock your every effort.
Here at Achieve Body Sculpting, as our name describes, we’re here to close the distance to a bathing suit-ready body with our state-of-the-art body sculpting system. Called CoolSculpting®, we help our clients in the Phoenix area put the finishing touches on their hard work by eliminating those unwanted pockets of fats.
Here’s a look at why your fat is so stubborn and how our FDA-cleared CoolSculpting system fights back to help you achieve your body-shape goals.
One of the first things you should know about body fat is that you aren’t entirely in control, at least in terms of where your body holds on to fat. There are a few higher powers at play when it comes to storing fat and first up is your gender.
Women and men store fat differently according to their biological needs, which is why women are more prone to store excess fat around their reproductive organs. This fat tucks itself around your abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, and stubbornly holds on because of its biological directives. Men, on the other hand, typically only carry excess fat around their bellies, leaving their legs and buttocks free for movement.
On top of gender, your genetics play a key role in how your body stores fat. Take a look at your family tree, and if you notice a tendency toward larger hips, odds are that inclination is in your genes, too.
What this means is that no matter how hard you try to lose those last pockets of stubborn fat, your body is under different marching orders. These roadblocks also play out when you try and target your fat deposits, which is nearly impossible. Sure, you can lose weight, but your body chooses where it sheds the pounds, not you.
Bypassing Mother Nature
The reason we wanted to discuss the science of fat is to demonstrate why CoolSculpting is so effective. With this system, we bypass Mother Nature and target your stubborn fat directly. Using CoolSculpting, we deliver a cooling energy into the fat cells in your target areas, which crystalizes them in a process called cryolipolysis. Once frozen, your fat cells die off, and your body flushes them out through your lymphatic system.
And these fat cells don’t regenerate. When you enter adulthood, you carry, more or less, the same number of fat cells throughout your life. Any time you gain or lose weight, your existing fat cells increase or decrease in size, respectively, but they don’t increase or decrease in number. With CoolSculpting, we’re once again bypassing Mother Nature by reducing the overall number of fat cells you have.
The CoolSculpting Process
One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting is that it’s safe to use almost anywhere on your body. The cooling energy travels through your skin, without harming the surface area, to target your fat cells below. This means that we can use CoolSculpting to target stubborn fat in your:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
We can even use CoolSculpting to get rid of fat underneath your chin, restoring your profile.
The treatments themselves take less than an hour, and there’s no downtime afterward, which means you’re free to get on with your day.
Most of our clients undergo a series of CoolSculpting treatments for the best results. When you come in, we’ll review your target areas, discuss your goals, and come up with an appropriate timeline.
If you’d like that final push toward your ideal body shape, CoolSculpting is just the tool you need. Please give us a call if you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment. You can also use our easy online booking tool.
