You love your favorite pair of jeans.  When you bought them they fit you like a glove, flattering your sleek silhouette.  But the last time you tried to put them on, something awful happened.

Muffin top.

Is there any look less flattering?  There is it, billowing over the waist band, defying the zipper’s ability to ascend to its rightful (closed) position.

And with muffin top come love handles.  They’re part of the battle of the bulge and the war on lumps that prevent you from wearing your favorite jeans.  They mock you were they jiggle at your waist, their presence preventing you from feeling as hot and slinky as you know you are.

But CoolSculpting away muffin tops and love handles is here.  This therapy is taking the aesthetics market by storm, with its ability to freeze fat away.  But CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss tool.  It’s a spot reduction treatment that targets area of fat which are more resistant to diet and exercise – like muffin tops and love handles.

Dense and Stubborn

Mid-section fat is dense and stubborn.  It tends to be more difficult to get rid of and to make matters worse, it sits on top of the muscle in that area, making it look even worse.

But it’s not just the way it looks that should worry you.  It’s the fact that mid-section fat is the most dangerous type of all and can lead to obesity-related illnesses like diabetes and heart disease.

Your mid-section isn’t just to admire in a pair of jeans, it’s the site of your internal organs and when there’s too much fat in this area, there are numerous health risks you may be more vulnerable to.

Spot Fat Reduction

As we noted above, CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss tool.  It’s a spot fat-reduction technology which targets areas of fat which haven’t responded to exercise and sensible eating.

People with a BMI (Body Mass Index) over 30 are not candidates for the treatment for this reason.  People who are physically active and following a healthy lifestyle, but who struggle with stubborn areas like muffin tops and love handles are the best candidates for CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting Technology

The process used in CoolSculpting is called cryolipolysis.  Approved by the FDA in 2010, following notable popularity in other parts of the world, including Europe, the process freezes fat cells.

This kills the cell containing the fat.  Once the cell is dead, the body itself eliminates its contents, once and for all.  This takes place over several months, but most people tend to see results one month after treatment, as the process takes hold.

In truth, CoolSculpting just helps your body get rid of something it doesn’t need!
