If you’re struggling with pockets of stubborn fat, you could be fighting a losing battle. When it comes to areas like your chin, belly, hips, and thighs, you’re often working against diet-resistant fat cells and genetics.
But that doesn’t mean you’re doomed to spend the rest of your life hiding behind a bulky t-shirt and sweatpants. At Essence Skin Clinic in the heart of Rochester, Minnesota, we offer cutting-edge techniques like CoolSculpting® to eliminate your unwanted fat once and for all.
The truth about fat
By the time you’re an adult, you have a fixed number of fat cells in your body. These cells never change in number; they simply grow larger or smaller in size when you gain or lose weight.
Your genes help decide how to distribute fat cells around your body. They also determine which of your fat cells are resistant to diet and exercise. When this happens, you won’t be able to change those cells — no matter how strictly you follow a diet and exercise routine — and you’re left with double chins, saddlebags, and love handles.
But, just because you have stubborn fat pockets that refuse to budge, that doesn’t mean there aren’t solutions. That’s because CoolSculpting® can eliminate your unwanted fat cells by destroying them permanently.
Freezing out fat with CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, noninvasive technique that uses cold temperatures to damage your fat cells. Once injured, the cells die, and your body absorbs them before flushing them from your body forever.
We recommend CoolSculpting® to help you get proven fat-busting results for your entire body, including:
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bra and back fat
- Beneath your buttocks
- Abdomen, waist, and love handles
- Double chin, or submental fullness
CoolSculpting® is so effective, you can expect to lose 20-25% of your unwanted fat cells in one session. It’s also safe enough for us to treat multiple areas of your body at one time.
It’s easy to get your swimsuit body with CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® has several different applicators that make it easy for us to customize each session to your individual needs.
At the beginning of your treatment, we put a protective gel pad in place before securing the CoolSculpting® applicator to your body. As your session gets underway, you may feel a slight suction sensation as the CoolSculpting® machine draws your fat into the treatment chamber.
When CoolSculpting® starts cooling the treatment area, you could also notice a mild tingling or numbing sensation. Otherwise, CoolSculpting® sessions are comfortable and take 35-60 minutes.
After your session finishes, we remove your CoolSculpting® applicator and gently massage the site. This step helps break up the frozen fat cells so that they’re easier for your immune system to flush from your system.
There’s no downtime with CoolSculpting®, so you can resume your favorite activities immediately. Within a few weeks, you’ll start seeing changes in the treatment area as your body absorbs more and more of your damaged fat cells.
You can expect to see the most dramatic results within eight weeks of your session, but your body continues eliminating the damaged fat cells for 4-6 months after a CoolSculpting® treatment.
Depending on your overall goals, we might suggest several CoolSculpting® treatments. After you reach your desired goals, you can maintain your new swimsuit body with diet and exercise.
