Staying indoors and following quarantine guidelines has made it challenging to stick to a healthy eating and fitness routine. Many of us have gained weight over the past few months, an issue dubbed the “quarantine 15.” If this weight gain sounds all too familiar to you, you should know you can reclaim your confidence. Nonsurgical body contouring with CoolSculpting helps Dallas men and women trim trouble spots and rediscover their pre-quarantine confidence—all with little to no recovery time.
In this blog post, we will highlight the benefits of CoolSculpting, explain how it works, and discuss how it may help you bounce back and feel better about the way you look.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure that freezes away fat cells. After the procedure, over the next 1 to 3 months, the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells. As this process takes place, the target area reduces in size, whittling down unwanted rolls and curves.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?
CoolSculpting is especially popular for slimming the lower abdomen, but it can be used on a variety of areas, including the:
- Upper arms
If you’ve noticed your body developing new bumps or bulges during quarantine, they’re likely perfect spots to treat with CoolSculpting. Learn more about other common treatment areas in this previous blog post.
Can CoolSculpting Help Me Lose Weight?
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and it won’t dramatically move the needle on the scale. However, it can tone up areas resistant to diet and exercise, allowing you to feel more confident in your appearance and more comfortable during workouts.
As you jump back into your exercise routine and focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you may find it difficult to reduce specific areas. (Think muffin tops, love handles, banana rolls, and other areas with deceptively cute nicknames.) Because weight loss happens evenly across the body, you can’t spot-treat these areas through diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting truly shines at contouring these areas so you can enjoy a smooth, sculpted silhouette.
How Long Is Recovery After CoolSculpting?
Because CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure, there is no required downtime. You can return to work or home immediately following your treatment. You may have some redness or sensitivity in your treated area, but these issues typically fade quickly and don’t keep most people from enjoying all their usual daily activities.
COVID-19 and quarantine may not be over quite yet, but you don’t have to stop making plans for yourself and your future. CoolSculpting helps you jump back into your routine, feeling better about your shape than ever.
