Are you struggling to get a perfect hourglass figure? Have you recently gained weight and are finding your clothes too snug around your waist? Most of us want to get the perfect hourglass figure, but unfortunately, even hours at the gym and a strict diet are not enough to help us accomplish that goal.
However, if like most women you have gained most of those extra pounds around your middle, then CoolSculpting is a revolutionary fat freezing method that can help you get a flat stomach. More than that, you’ll be able to witness an hourglass shape that you thought was only possible in your dreams.
CoolSculpting is all set to lift your confidence so you can look good and most importantly feel good in your own skin. This amazing technology is not only a non-invasive procedure but also doesn’t take long at all. Let us learn more about how CoolSculpting works and how it can help you achieve the hourglass figure that you’ve always wanted.
Understanding the hourglass figure
An hourglass figure is considered the classic feminine body shape. Classic beauties like Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, and tightly cinched Victorian ladies have made men (and women) go gaga over the curvy body shape.
Did you know that there is an ‘hourglass’ equation? It comprises measuring the bust, waist, and hip size. Now measure the smallest area of your waist, the curve right under the breast and the hips at their widest. Ideally, the waist should be 70 percent the size of the bust and hips or the 0.70 ratio.
Most women naturally have a bust and hip size similar in size. But the abdomen is usually the trouble area, especially for women who have an apple shaped body. Over the years, women have used dangerous techniques like corsets and other uncomfortable techniques to achieve the hourglass figure. But thanks to the innovative fat-freezing technology, it is easier and safer for women to achieve the ultra-feminine body shape.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive and FDA approved form of fat reduction. This fat reduction method uses below freezing temperatures (ranging between +5 to -11 °C) to break down fat cells. Cold is not harmful to the other cells of the body and only affects the fat cells.
CoolSculpting is based on the theory that fat cells are more sensitive to cooler temperatures as compared to the rest of the surrounding cells. Kids who consumed popsicles often used to get redness and swelling on their cheeks. Sometimes, children even got dimples in their cheeks.
Two dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dieter Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD, took inspiration from this phenomenon and experimented by applying cool treatments to pigs which eventually lead to the evolution of “CoolSculpting.”
What happens during CoolSculpting?
During the procedure, the practitioner uses an applicator that sucks the skin gently. The blast of cold air gradually makes the skin numb. Some people experience a little soreness that is almost similar to the one after an intense workout or minor muscle sprain. The best part is that there is no recovery time because it is a non-invasive procedure that does no damage to the skin or tissue.
Most individuals might need around 6-8 sittings of CoolSculpting before they can see a visible difference. However, experts claim that it will decrease fat around the treated area by an average of 20 percent.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
The main benefit of this non-surgical fat removing procedure is that it has zero downtime, unlike liposuction and other fat reducing treatments that require one to go under the knife. According to recent research, many people are avoiding liposuction because anesthesia makes them queasy.
Benefits of CoolSculpting include:
- Zero anesthesia
- No scarring as it is non-invasive
- Little to no recovery time
- Can return to the daily routine immediately
- Quick–the treatment takes 35-45 minutes
In fact, the treatment rooms for CoolSculpting are so relaxing that patients come in and work on their laptop, watch a movie or read a book while the technicians work their magic.
Can CoolSculpting help in achieving an hourglass figure?
To be honest, CoolSculpting is not an obesity treatment and it will not help you lose weight. If you are obese, we recommend you to improve your diet and increase your physical activity to lose weight.
CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure and as the name suggests only ‘sculpts’ your body in a better shape. It is perfect for those who are already in great health but can’t seem to get rid of fat bulges in specific areas such as flanks, upper arms, lower abs, thighs, and the double chin.
If you are looking for a miracle solution that can help you with intense weight loss measures, look elsewhere. CoolSculpting is not a miracle solution. It can act as a permanent fat reduction aid only if you keep your weight in control through proper nutrition and exercise.
