Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss Washington DC


CoolSculpting is the unique and innovative procedure that literally freezes your fat away! But what is the difference between getting rid of fat and losing weight? Shouldn’t people be more focused on weight loss rather than just fat reduction? Unfortunately, most people get the two concerns mixed up. While weight loss is great for healthy living, it sometimes does not go hand in hand with fat reduction, which is primarily important for your physical appearance.

That means you could spend months dieting, working out, and staying fit, and still not get rid of those love handles or soft areas around your stomach that you just can’t stand. The good news is that there is now a healthy and easy solution that actually works! CoolSculpting specifically targets those areas of fat that you want to reduce and kills the fat cells for good, causing the results you have desired for so long to appear without any effort.

Why don’t my fat cells disappear when I lose weight?

While losing weight to maintain a healthy lifestyle is important, it does not always lead a person to the physical results they are seeking. Why? When you lose weight, your fat cells will become smaller, but there are still the same number of fat cells there. That means the moment you gain any more weight, those fat cells will become larger again.

So what does CoolSculpting do differently? In this procedure, your fat cells are frozen and eventually die, which in turn reduces the actual number of fat cells in those treated areas. That means that those fat cells no longer pose a threat of getting bigger again.

Did we mention the other benefits of this procedure?

  • Treatment typically lasts no more than an hour or so
  • There is no pain or no anesthesia required
  • Non-invasive, so no surgery involved
  • Results last for good
  • It is FDA Cleared

Compared to weight loss surgery or other weight loss procedures, CoolSculpting truly delivers the results that last. Regardless of whether you are able to lose weight or not, you will be thinner, feel fitter, and your clothes will fit better thanks to fat reduction.
