Belly Fat Q & A

Why do I have belly fat?

The most obvious cause for having a fat belly is excess weight gained through eating more calories than you burn off. The excess calories you consume end up as fat, and your belly is one of the primary areas for fat storage. However, many people find that after losing excess weight from other areas of their body, they still have a stubborn roll of fat on their belly that won’t respond to further dieting or exercise.

Shifting belly fat is more difficult as you age, too, because as you get older your muscle mass gradually reduces, and fat levels increase. In women, pregnancy can lead to post-baby belly fat that won’t shift, and a fall in estrogen levels can cause an increase in belly fat, particularly during and after menopause.

How can CoolSculpting help with belly fat?

CoolSculpting uses the science of cryolipolysis to destroy fat cells and get rid of your belly fat. Cryolipolysis is the application of intense cold to fat cells to destroy them permanently, after which your body’s natural processes dispose of the dead cells. Over a period of two to six months after treatment, your belly becomes smoother and flatter.

The team at Achieve Body Sculpting specializes in using the CoolSculpting system to treat belly fat and has an impressive track record in helping clients achieve the flat, smooth tummy they’re looking for.

What happens during the CoolSculpting procedure?

CoolSculpting doesn’t require any form of invasive surgery, and you won’t need an anesthetic for the procedure. Your technician uses a gel pad and an applicator with a cup on the end that draws fatty tissue in for the cooling treatment.

When your session begins, you feel the concentrated cold at first, but your skin and underlying tissues quickly start to go numb. As the treatment progresses, you may feel one or more of a range of sensations, including:

  • Pulling
  • Tugging
  • Mild pinching
  • Tingling
  • Stinging
  • Aching
  • Cramping

Each procedure lasts a minimum of three hours, after which you may feel you need to rest for the remainder of the day, although some clients feel happy to return to their normal routine straight after treatment.

How many CoolSculpting treatments would I need?

The exact number of treatment sessions varies between individual clients, but on average you need two treatments with between two and four cycles per session. Treatments are normally scheduled at two-week intervals.
