Toning up in Fort Collins

When you get close to your goal weight, it may seem extremely hard, if not impossible, to remove the last remaining pockets of stubborn fat. Traditional weight loss methods, such as dieting and exercise, can’t remove specific spots of excess fat, which can be extremely frustrating. However, Genesis Lifestyle Medicine performs non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction with CoolSculpting in Fort Collins to eliminate the last vestiges of subcutaneous fat cells from your body.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive and non-surgical fat reduction technique that allows you to remove extremely specific pockets of unwanted fat cells from your body. During the treatment, special CoolSculpting applicators deliver bursts of cold temperatures into the fat cells to destroy them and facilitate their extraction from the body. The treatment is painless, comfortable, and completely safe. Your body removes the destroyed fat cells via the body’s natural waste expulsion processes, and the targeted area looks more toned.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring and fat reduction treatment developed by two doctors working with the Harvard Medical School in 2009. The CoolSculpting treatment is founded on the scientific principles of cryolipolysis. According to this principle, extremely cold temperatures can freeze and destroy fat cells, facilitating their subsequent removal from the body via the lymphatic system. This is the only non-invasive technique of removing targeted fat cells from the body.

CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure — not a weight loss procedure

Our CoolSculpting in Fort Collins is a body contouring procedure that can remove fat cells from specific parts of your body. It’s not a weight loss procedure. You should be close to your goal weight to qualify for this procedure, and CoolSculpting isn’t deemed to be suitable for patients who are overweight. To understand the difference between fat reduction and weight loss, you must understand how fat cells are distributed in the body and how weight loss and gain occur.

Human adults have a fairly uniform number of fat cells in the body throughout their lives. When you lose or gain weight, you don’t lose or gain new fat cells — the existing fat cells simply expand or contract. Some people may have excessive fat distribution in specific parts of the body, leading to “stubborn fat cells” that don’t respond to dieting and exercise. CoolSculpting removes those fat cells from the body, thus recontouring your body.

Before & After

Is CoolSculpting safe?

CoolSculpting is a completely safe and effective procedure. It’s FDA-approved as a fat reduction technique, and it has been performed on millions of people worldwide with consistent results. Furthermore, the cold temperature used for this procedure is only enough to freeze fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin tissues. We also use gel pads to protect your skin from direct exposure to cold temperatures.

The benefits of fat reduction with CoolSculpting:

  • Non-invasive technique
  • No incisions or scars
  • Targets specific pockets of unwanted fat
  • Suitable for body contouring
  • Produces gradual results over several weeks
  • Customized according to your needs
  • No downtime or recovery period

What can I expect from CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting in Fort Collins is a fairly simple process. You will have to lie down on a reclining chair as the technician places a cool gel pad on the treatment area on your skin. The CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the gel pad. The technician activates the device to generate a cold temperature and a gentle suction force.

You might feel a pulling and tugging sensation for the first 15 minutes, but you’ll eventually get accustomed to the feeling. Some patients even fall asleep during the treatment — there’s no pain or discomfort. After the treatment, the CoolSculpting provider removes the panels and massages your treatment area to break up the frozen fat cells.

The duration of your CoolSculpting treatment depends on the number of treatment areas. The procedure lasts for 30 minutes for each treatment area, so the overall time multiplies accordingly.

What are the side effects of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting doesn’t lead to harsh side effects. You may experience mild redness, bruising, tenderness, and swelling in the treatment area, but these side effects dissipate within a few days. In some cases, patients experience mild cramping sensations for up to a week.

What are the results like?

CoolSculpting doesn’t produce immediate results because it relies on your body’s natural fat reduction capability. The frozen fat cells will eventually be sent to the lymphatic system, from which they’ll be expelled as waste. The results may start appearing after three weeks and continue improving for 2 to 4 months. Some patients may desire additional sessions.
