Start CoolSculpting® Now to Be Swimsuit-Ready by Summer

Winter is a perfect time to hide those stubborn deposits of fat behind bulky clothes, but as summer approaches, you’re left scrambling to diet and exercise the fat away. Unfortunately, certain areas of fat can be tough to target, which is why we’ve equipped ourselves with the cutting-edge CoolSculpting® fat-reduction system.

At Marion Ob/Gyn Inc., Dr. David Foulk and our team provide a wide range of women’s health care services that help you feel great on the inside and look even better on the outside. As part of our suite of aesthetic services, we’re pleased to offer the non-invasive CoolSculpting technology.

Here’s a look at how, if you start now, we can reshape your body before bathing-suit season.

A last winter freeze 

CoolSculpting relies on an innovative technology called cryolipolysis, which essentially means “fat freezing.” With CoolSculpting, we deliver energy into your tissue (without affecting the surface area) that cools your fat cells to an unsustainable level, essentially destroying their ability to store fat.

Once destroyed, your body flushes the fat cells out through its lymphatic system, leaving you with up to 20-25% fewer fat cells in your treatment area.

The ultimate workaround

One of the primary reasons CoolSculpting is so effective is that we’re able to target your problematic fat, something which is virtually impossible to do through diet and exercise alone. 

When you diet and exercise, you obviously do lose weight, but your body chooses where it sheds the fat, despite your best efforts to target certain areas. And your body’s directives are often far different than your goals. For example, women are biologically wired to store more fat around their reproductive organs, which means fat stubbornly clings to your abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs.

With CoolSculpting, we work around Mother Nature’s marching orders and address the problematic fat cells directly. Note that you shouldn’t consider CoolSculpting as a weight-loss technique. The technology works best when you’re within your target weight, but you need help with shaping the final product by eliminating certain deposits of fat.

The fat where?

Since CoolSculpting is noninvasive, the Food and Drug Administration has cleared it for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the following areas:

In most cases, you benefit from a series of three to five treatments for best results. Each treatment is just 30-45 minutes, and we massage your treatment area afterward for maximum effect.

Your treatments are spaced apart by several weeks to allow time for your body to process the destroyed fat cells. In most cases, optimal results are realized about 6-12 weeks after your final CoolSculpting session.

To get yourself ready in time for swimsuit season, contact our Marion, Ohio, office now to set up your first CoolSculpting treatment.
