CoolSculpting is a non-evasive procedure to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, in laymen’s terms, it freezes your fat right off. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, chin and thighs. We were intrigued. We eat right and exercise regularly, but like the majority of women, we have areas of fat that hang onto us like a clingy toddler; spots that drive us crazy, occupy too much of our time and self-worth.
Could CoolSculpting be the answer? We went in for a consultation, on the area that seems impervious to change; the back of our legs, right under our bum. After measuring and assessing, it was decided, CoolSculpting could help us, so in we went to have some fat frozen:
The procedure is easy and pain-free, the most uncomfortable part is when the machine first comes off the treated area. Following it’s removal you are left with a frozen zone, similar in shape to a block of butter, that has to be massaged down. I found the massage part annoying and uncomfortable. Meg however, didn’t seem to be bothered by it. Other than that, the only other down side is the time requirement. The body part Meg and I had done required the device to be on for thirty-five minutes each leg.
It will take another few weeks to see our results. The claim is the most dramatic results can be seen anywhere from one to three months following the procedure. We will let you know the outcome.
When it comes to the price tag, CoolSculpting is not cheap – but it shouldn’t be. It is a procedure that has science and research behind it. The benefit is, the results are permanent, once the fat cells are eliminated they are not coming back! We are excited to offer our readers a 30% discount on CoolSculpting at Dr. Boulos Medical Spa.
We would also like to thank Kristina, the woman who did the procedure on us. She was professional, knowledgeable and also made us feel very comfortable.
To freezing fat!
