Do you have unwanted bulges of fat at the sides of your waist? Have you been unsuccessful in trying to reduce them with diet and exercise? If so, that’s not surprising. Love handles can be stubborn. Luckily, there is a safe and effective way to correct and minimize these unwanted areas of fat. The exciting solution is CoolSculpting treatment for love handles.
Love Handles Aren’t Always Loveable
Love handles are a common cosmetic concern for both men and women.
The term “love handles” was coined back in the 1960s. It is now commonly used to describe the area of accumulated fat around the waist.
Love handles can add to a muffin top appearance when you wear fitted clothes. Muffin tops look great on muffins—but are not as attractive on people!
Your unrewarded efforts of using diet and exercise to reduce your love handles may leave you feeling frustrated and hopeless about ever achieving the body you want.
How Love Handles Develop
Love handles usually develop when a person puts on excess weight. This happens when they eat too many calories and then don’t move or exercise enough to burn off the extra calories. Foods that are high in fats and sugars can contribute to unwanted waistline fat and love handles.
Accumulation of fat around the waist is influenced by:
- Stress, which creates too much cortisol
- A diet high in fats, carbohydrates, and sugars
- Sleep deprivation
- Certain underlying medical conditions, including diabetes, high cholesterol, or heart disease
While genetics can give you a predisposition to store fat in certain areas on your body, your lifestyle choices in terms of exercise, diet, and stress management may overcome this fat storage predisposition.
However, sometimes extreme dedication to avoiding love handles is unsuccessful. But it’s not time to give up. There is an effective FDA-cleared treatment to reduce your unwanted love handles.
CoolSculpting Minimizes Love Handles
CoolSculpting is a safe way to freeze away fat not affected by diet and exercise alone. It is a popular treatment for both men and women.
The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting treatment is an effective, non-invasive way to get rid of stubborn body fat in many areas of the body, including:
- Love Handles
- Double Chins
- Muffin Tops
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Upper Arms
CoolSculpting Freezes Away Unwanted Fat
CoolSculpting is a procedure that eliminates stubborn, unwanted fat by freezing. The treatment applicator cools a designated area to freeze and destroy fat cells. The targeted fat cells are then safely and naturally eliminated by the body. Once the fat cells are gone, you will see a noticeable improvement in the treated area.
This freezing technique is called cryolipolysis.
You do not need to worry that the fat cells will return. The CoolSculpting procedure doesn’t have an expiration date at which time fat will reappear. Your body won’t create new fat cells to replace the ones that were frozen and eliminated.
Of course, new fat cells will be deposited somewhere in your body if you have a subsequent weight gain. However, having the procedure won’t affect where your body stores these new fat cells.
What Our Vibrance MedSpa Clients Love About the CoolSculpting Procedure
Our CoolSculpting clients are always happy to learn that the treatment does not call for the use of any needles, surgery, or anesthesia.
Most patients remain perfectly comfortable during the CoolSculpting treatment. Some of our patients even bring a book or take a brief nap to pass the time.
At first, patients feel a cooling sensation in the treatment area. After several minutes, the area may feel numb, but there is rarely any discomfort.
After the cooling treatment, an aesthetician massages the area. This helps to break up the frozen cells so they can be more easily re-absorbed. Patients are then ready to continue with their day.
Treatment time will vary based on the specific area that is being treated.
