A great set of well-defined abdominal muscles is a terrific way to improve your aesthetic and enhance your overall appearance. The stomach is one of the most common problem areas where fat deposits conglomerate, which makes achieving washboard abs a daunting proposition for most people. If you can’t get the results you are looking for despite strict adherence to diet and a workout routine, Coolsculpting for abs might be the perfect solution for you. Read on to discover how a consultation with New Image Body Sculpting in Glendale, CA might help you achieve the results you deserve.
Coolsculpting for Abs
Any advanced beauty regimen will involve diet and exercise. Diet helps you maintain a low overall body fat percentage, and exercise helps you tone and define your muscles. Diet and exercise work, but unfortunately they are not effective at targeted body contouring. Your body is programmed for survival, not aesthetics, and sometimes diet and exercise have the unfortunate result of removing fat from your curves instead of your problem areas.
If you are a fit, active, healthy person who is very close to your ideal body shape, Coolscupting represents a fantastic means of putting the final touches on your overall look. If you’ve ever looked at yourself in a mirror and wished you had a magic wand to smooth out certain features, you might be an ideal candidate for this effective, painless, and efficient form of body sculpting.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
Coolsculpting was discovered when two doctors, Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson, noticed that children who ate popsicles developed dimples. They hypothesized that some function of the cold of the popsicle allowed for the removal of subcutaneous fat cells. Now, years later and after hundreds of clinical trials, the Coolsculpting process has been refined, perfected, and has also earned FDA approval. When you consider that no child has ever complained about the cold of a popsicle, you get an idea for how painless the process is.
Cryolipolysis is the operating scientific principle that drives Coolsculpting. Your body is a remarkable organism and understanding the biochemistry of your cells is the key to comprehending how Coolsculpting works. Your skin and surrounding tissues are water-based cells, and your fat is oil-based. One of the things you might remember from your high school chemistry class is that water has a very high heat capacity. This is why it takes water so long to boil even when you subject it to intense heat. Conversely, water can store so much heat energy that it takes a very long time to cool.
Your oil-based fat cells are not as adept at storing heat. This means that by subjecting your fat cells to cool temperatures for a prolonged period, you can reduce their temperature and provoke localized cell death without causing any adverse effects to the surrounding tissue. Cryolipolysis allows us to eliminate unwanted deposits of fat in a way that’s healthy and non-invasive. Once the cells die, your body expels them naturally as waste.
When Do I See Results?
One of the best aspects of Coolsculpting is that it’s a subtle process. Your body removes your unwanted fat via natural processes, which does not cause any stress and which takes time after the treatment. Most of our clients begin to notice results as early as two weeks after their appointment and continue to improve for up to two months. Many of our clients have detailed the psychological benefit of waking up in the morning to check their progress and being delighted to discover how more fat has melted away.
Some clients even go so far as to make time-lapse videos that detail their improvement. There is also a workout benefit, as your Coolsculpting results develop concurrently with your gym results, giving you a psychological motivation to give your all at every gym workout.
Is It Painful?
The treatment is not painful. In fact, Coolsculpting is so convenient that you can receive a treatment during your lunch break and then return to work with no limitations on your daily schedule. We understand that you are a busy person with work and family obligations that cause extreme demands on your time. You deserve to look and feel great and take advantage of a beauty treatment that you can integrate seamlessly into your life without causing any disruptions.
You can compare the sensation to jumping into a swimming pool. At first, it feels cold, but your body quickly reaches equilibrium and you can relax throughout the treatment. Our clients often watch television, read books, work on their mobile devices, or even nap during their session. You can almost think of your Coolsculpting appointment as relaxing at your local health spa.
Will It Give Me Abs?
Coolsculpting will help provide greater definition to your abs. It’s important to go into Coolsculpting, or any beauty treatment, with proper expectations. Everyone’s muscle definition is always obscured by an exterior layer of fat. By reducing that fat, you will be able to better show off the work you’ve put in at the gym.
How Much Fat Can I Remove?
Keep in mind that the treatment is not efficient for massive weight loss. This is a body contouring treatment that provides the best results for fit, active people who want to focus on targeted problem areas. The treatment can effectively reduce 20% to 25% of fat from a given area per session. If you have an upcoming event, like a wedding or a graduation, we can design a treatment schedule with multiple sessions to ensure you look your absolute best for the big day.
Can I Continue My Routine?
One of the biggest advantages of Coolsculpting over surgical fat reduction techniques is that there is no recovery time. A commitment to health and beauty requires developing a routine. Our clients always achieve the best results from their diet and workout schedule when they make them habitual. Your adherence to your program has to become as commonplace as brushing your teeth. When you incorporate your health into your schedule without even thinking about it, you don’t need to waste energy motivating yourself.
Taking a few weeks away from the gym so you can recover from surgery interrupts your fitness schedule. Coolsculpting allows you to control and contour the shape of your body without missing a single workout. You work hard to look great, and this treatment doesn’t force you to make a choice between workouts and aesthetics. You get the best of all worlds.
Are the Results Permanent?
The fat cells that are removed are killed and do not return. If you undergo a period of weight gain, it is possible that your body will again store fat in the areas you’ve had treated. However, your body chemistry changes all the time, and sometimes the body begins to store fat in different areas. Many of our clients enjoy Coolsculpting so much that they incorporate it as a regular part of their health and beauty routine.
What Parts of the Body Can I Treat?
The treatment has been in safe operation for almost a decade, and in that time the process has been revised and adapted for almost any body feature. Coolsculpting works great on the abs, but it’s also ideal for the thighs, flanks, arms, and neck, to name a few.
If you have a body feature that causes you dissatisfaction, it can be extremely empowering to discover that you have the power to do something about it. Come in and let us show you how we can help you attain the look you’ve always dreamed about.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting?
The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for Coolsculpting for abs or any other body feature is to schedule a consultation. Your consultation is an opportunity to meet us and develop the proper relationship of a trusted care provider. We want to see you succeed in your health and beauty goals, and we can lay out a plan that allows you to get the full benefit of Coolsculpting. If you are fit, healthy, and active with a few problem areas that have proven resistant to the effects of diet and exercise, you’re probably a great candidate.
We can also provide you with information on diet and workout choices that will help you get the most out of your session. Your beauty is our responsibility, and we’re here to provide you with the best information and an actionable plan that will bring you the results you deserve. It’s been our pleasure to treat many clients who have resigned themselves to living with an unflattering body feature. Body contouring allows you to take control of your appearance in a way that you never thought was possible.
What Is the Session Like?
The typical session takes between forty minutes and an hour. If you are having a large area treated, we might recommend consecutive treatments that will extend the treatment time. The treatment is performed with specially designed applicators that are affixed to the body. The applicators range in size depending on the area you want to be treated. There are even applicators designed for under the neck, so virtually any feature can be treated with this process.
The applicators contain both a vacuum element to bring your subcutaneous fat to the surface and a cooling component. We will coat your skin with a protective gel to increase your comfort level. Once the applicators are in place, you cannot remove them throughout the duration of your treatment. We recommend that you wear loose-fitting clothing like you’d wear at home on a day off. If you are receiving a treatment during a lunch break, we recommend bringing a change of clothing so you don’t get any gel on your work clothes.
Can I Bring a Friend?
Absolutely! We find that the success rate of all health and beauty programs improves if you have a support group. You can schedule your consultation with a friend, relative, or romantic partner and enjoy the whole journey together. Going in for a body contouring treatment is a wonderful way to bond and strengthen a relationship. You’ll feel comfortable throughout the process, and you’ll emerge at the end looking and feeling your absolute best.
