How to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

The human body is designed to store fat, and for many of us, the abdominal area is the preferred location for storing it. If you have been battling belly fat without seeing the results you want, non-surgical fat removal treatments like CoolSculpting® can help you reach your goals. This treatment eliminates stubborn fat to sculpt your figure without pain or recovery time. 

How to Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

Belly fat can be among the most difficult types to remove. When even a healthy lifestyle does not budge this challenging fat, your Twin Ports Dermatology team may recommend CoolSculpting®. This non-invasive treatment uses cold temperatures to eliminate unwanted fat cells so your body can remove them. Along with the abdomen, CoolSculpting® can be used to treat areas such as the thighs, arms, back, and under the chin.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work for Fat Removal?

CoolSculpting® works using cold temperatures to freeze fat cells. This process is called cryolipolysis, and it works because fat cells freeze while skin cells and other tissues remain unharmed. The freezing process damages the fat cell membranes, and these damaged cells will be filtered away by your body’s lymphatic system. 

What is a CoolSculpting® Treatment Like?

A CoolSculpting® treatment usually lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. Your Twin Ports Dermatology provider will apply a gel to your skin before putting on the CoolSculpting® applicator. This system has different applicator shapes to fit different areas of the body.

You may feel cold and tingling when treatment begins. However, the area will go numb within minutes. Most people relax, check their phones, or even take a nap during their session. When treatment ends, your provider will remove the applicator, and you can return to your daily routine with no downtime.

What Results Will I See With CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® relies on your lymphatic system to remove the treated fat cells. This process is very effective but takes time. You may start to see results within a few weeks, but most people will see full results after about three months. CoolSculpting® has been shown to remove up to 25% of fat from the treated areas. Some people achieve their belly fat goals with one treatment, while others may benefit from additional sessions. 

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Most healthy adults are good candidates for CoolSculpting®. This non-invasive treatment is safe for all skin types and tones. Candidates should understand that although CoolSculpting® will remove belly fat, it should not be considered a weight loss tool. You will see the most noticeable results if you are near your goal weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. You should not have CoolSculpting® if you have an active skin condition, injury, or infection in the treatment area.
