CoolSculpting is a great way to destroy unwanted fat for a slimmer body. But how does it differ from regular ol’ dieting?
Regular weight loss
Losing weight by dieting and exercise decreases the size of your fat cells. The number of fat cells you have is pretty much the same, having stabilized sometime while you were a teenager. However, if you gain weight (and we’re not talking just a bit — we’re talking A LOT!) fat cells can get so big that they split into two. Fortunately, this isn’t common and only occurs with massive weight gain.
CoolSculpting weight loss
CoolSculpting, on the other hand, destroys fat cells in targeted areas by about 20% to 25%. Therefore, this nonsurgical procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells you have, rather than decreases their size.
With a healthy diet and exercise regimen, your body continues to see the benefits of treatment by decreasing the size of each remaining fat cell.
And the added bonus is that CoolSculpting can spot reduce fat. You can’t do that with regular dieting, since you have no control over where the fat comes off. But with CoolSculpting, you’re in total control. If you want to lose a few inches around your stomach but not your buttocks, it is totally possible!
