Have a pesky muffin top or love handles that just don’t want to part ways, no matter how much time you spend working out and eating right? This is a common problem for men and women alike, since many people are genetically predisposed to store excess fat in these areas.
If you’re thinking of getting CoolSculpting® for a muffin top, here are a few quick facts that you should know about how this treatment works.
WHAT IS TREATABLE FAT?
There are two kinds of fat: subcutaneous and visceral. Subcutaneous is the “pinchable” layer of fat that exists just beneath your skin and can be treated with CoolSculpting or liposuction. Visceral fat, on the other hand, is much deeper in your abdominal cavity, surrounding your organs. This type of fat cannot be treated via CoolSculpting or liposuction.
Areas like muffin tops and love handles can respond very well to CoolSculpting.
WHAT AREAS CAN COOLSCULPTING TREAT?
One of the perks of CoolSculpting is that it can treat just about any area with small pockets of “pinchable” fat that aren’t responding to diet and exercise on their own. Some of the most common areas for CoolSculpting treatments are:
- Muffin tops
- Love handles
- Belly pooches
- Back rolls
- Upper arms
HOW LONG DOES COOLSCULPTING TAKE?
On average, CoolSculpting takes around 1 hour per treatment area. But we offer CoolSculpting with the advantage applicators which can shorten your CoolSculpting treatment time to as little as 35 minutes. To shorten the time for treating multiple areas, we offer DualSculpting™ technology that can treat two areas of your body at the same time, thus reducing treatment time.
