There’s nothing quite like feeling confident in your skin the first time you step out in a swimsuit in summer. Leaving thoughts of self-consciousness behind and freeing yourself up to just have fun is what the warmer months are all about. If you’re looking for ways to shrink those last few bulges that are keeping you from feeling your best, you may be a terrific candidate for CoolSculpting at our Vancouver-area clinics.
But while summer may be the best time to show off your slim figure, it’s not the best time to start shaping it. Getting a jump start in spring will give you plenty of time to achieve a silhouette you feel confident about before the weather starts heating up.
What can CoolSculpting do?
CoolSculpting can reduce targeted pockets of body fat in multiple areas, including the:
It does this all without surgery, instead using controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells safely. Learn more about the benefits of nonsurgical body contouring in this previous blog post.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting safely freezes and destroys fat cells, which causes the body to eliminate them naturally. When you come in for a treatment, Tara Nemeth, our CoolSculpting specialist, will attach the applicator to your targeted area so it can deliver powerful cooling. At this time, you’ll be free to relax or even nap for the next hour or so as the machine works its magic.
Why start CoolSculpting in spring?
CoolSculpting results aren’t immediate. It takes about 2 months for your body to start removing the destroyed fat cells, though you may see continued improvement for about 4 months. At this time, you can decide whether your goals would best be achieved with additional treatments. While many people are happy with their results after just 1 session, it’s not uncommon to need 2 sessions to produce the best fat reduction.
Starting a few months before summer allows you to sculpt your body with multiple appointments as needed with time to spare before swimsuit season. Because you won’t need to take time away from the gym to recover, you’ll be able to keep working on your health goals in the meantime to make the most of your results.
How long will my CoolSculpting results last?
Your results may last for many summers to come. As long as you maintain a stable weight, your treated areas should stay just as slim. If you do gain weight, you’re likely to gain it more evenly across your body, as the cells removed from your stubborn regions will be gone for good.
