Should You Try CoolSculpting to Lose Weight?

CoolSculpting it attracting a lot of interest from people who desire a more sculpted appearance.  It’s intended use is spot fat reduction, employing a technology which freezes fat cells, causing them to die and their contents to be eliminated by the body’s natural processes.

So, should you try CoolSculpting to lose weight?  Let’s look at the question and arrive at an honest answer.

The Ideal Candidate

The thing about CoolSculpting is that it’s purpose-built to address areas of the body which haven’t responded to strategies like improving your diet and exercising.  These are those annoying little wobbly bits that won’t budge.  No matter what you do, there they are – taunting your every effort to rid yourself of them.

The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone intentionally nurturing a healthy lifestyle which includes nutritious and conscious eating habits and regular exercise to keep as fit as possible.

Does that describe you?

Do you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or under?

If you answered no to these two important questions, then CoolSculpting isn’t the right therapy for you.

Not a Weight Loss Strategy

To put it quite bluntly, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss strategy.  It’s a finely-targeted spot reduction tool that addresses areas which defy your best efforts to get them under control.

CoolSculpting refines your line.  It doesn’t help you lose weight.

So, what are your options?  Let’s put this in the simplest terms possible.

If you’re interested in CoolSculpting, then your best bet is to start the process of weight loss now.  No.  That does not mean you run to get liposuction.  This invasive procedure is painful, surgical and requires downtime and bandaging.

Not fun, right?  No worries.  There’s a better way.

It’s Down to You

We’re not going to lie to you.  We believe in being completely transparent about our therapies and treatments here at Ethos Spa, Skin & Laser Center.

If your BMI is over 30, CoolSculpting can’t help but key lifestyle changes can.  That means opening yourself up to possibilities that you may have been contemplating but haven’t been able to reach for – until now.

Start with the little things.  Choose to eat breakfast every day and make it a good one, including items like whole grain bread, fruit and yogurt.  If you feel you need a little protein, eggs are a great option, especially if they’re boiled or scrambled.  Watch your portion sizes for other meals and if you must snack, choose healthy foods like raw vegetables, fruit and nuts (a great source of protein, fiber and fatty acids).

Get yourself moving.  Again, start small.  Challenge yourself to walk a little further every day.  Get off the bus sooner.  Use the stairs instead of the elevator or get off the elevator several floors before yours.

As you ramp up your weight loss program, you’ll notice significant changes in the way you feel.  And don’t forget to talk to your doctor.

Our genes play a major role in the way we age.  While it’s true that nurture (the lifestyles we choose) affects the aging process, at least some of the process is in the hands of our genes. And now, scientists have discovered that the FOXO3A gene is a strong determinant of the way in which…

Botox is the granddaddy of all cosmetic injectables.  It works by limiting the mobility of facial muscles to soften and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Double chins aren’t always due to having a few extra pounds on you.  Sometimes, they’re just the evidence of your family tree.  Genetics are very often the reason that some people have a stubborn pocket of fat under their chins. While for many it’s no big deal, you’re reading this because you want to get…

Mothers are “it”.  They’re the pillars of the family.  That’s especially true of summer, when kids are home from school.  But it’s also true of the back-to-school season – a furious flurry of activity. Now that the kids have their supplies in their backpacks and they’ve returned to the reality of learning, achieving and growing…

As the leaves begin to change and the air becomes crisp, it’s time to start thinking about how to update your skincare regimen for fall. Your skin’s needs change with the seasons.  Moving from summer’s heat, humidity and sun exposure to fall’s freshness demands giving your current skincare routine a think.  With different weather conditions…
