The marriage of long, hot days and brilliant sunsets makes the Hawaiian Islands a truly magical place. But warmer weather also calls for outdoor activities and a more-revealing wardrobe. When you’re not comfortable with your appearance, wearing bikinis, shorts and tank tops can cause your self-confidence to dip.
Having a little body fat is certainly not a bad thing, as it can help to accentuate curves and enhance your overall physique. But those who struggle with an overabundance of fat know the difficulties it can create. If your clothes are fitting tighter than they used to and you’re skipping out on activities you once enjoyed, it may be time to do something about it.
At Windward Vein, Heart and Medispa, we offer CoolSculpting as a nonsurgical way to rid your body of unwanted fatty areas and feel good about yourself again.
The Magic of CoolSculpting
The CoolSculpting procedure was thought up by scientists from Harvard University when they realized that when children ate popsicles, dimples formed on their cheeks. What they found is nothing short of amazing: the frozen treat was actually eliminating small pockets of fat cells.
This finding led to the nonsurgical solution of CoolSculpting. By safely delivering controlled cooling to your targeted fatty regions, this procedure can gently and effectively freeze and kill your fat cells. Then, over the course of a couple of months, the crystallized fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated by the body.
As the only FDA-cleared technology that uses cooling technology for fat reduction, CoolSculpting is becoming a gold standard for men and women alike. With no needles, lasers, incisions or anesthesia, this nonsurgical treatment is a great alternative to invasive surgeries like liposuction or tummy tuck.
It’s a sad fact that people from all walks of life deal with stubborn, unwanted body fat—but CoolSculpting allows you a way to achieve a slimmer looking appearance. The coolest thing about CoolSculpting is its ability to work on multiple different area of the body. For many of our clients though, the most popular areas treated include:
Stomach – For both men and women, the abdomen tends to be an area of aesthetic concern. Exercise and healthy eating are crucial factors in fat reduction, but stomach fat tends to be stubborn and often doesn’t respond to exercise. With CoolSculpting, you can finally achieve a flatter midsection and feel confident in your own skin.
Love handles – Most people with love handles don’t tend to find them very lovely. In fact, their unsightly appearance can cause some serious self-image issues. Also referred to as the flanks or sides of your midsection, unlovely love handles often spill over the top of jeans and create a “muffin top” appearance. If this sounds like you, the cooling technology of CoolSculpting can freeze those fatty regions right off.
Thighs – If you’re like most people, you aren’t completely satisfied with the look of your thighs. Whether you have fat bulges protruding from your outer thighs or stubborn fat on the inner thighs, CoolSculpting can help. With this non-invasive treatment, you can achieve your much-desired gap between your thighs and feel more confident while wearing shorts and dresses.
Arms – If you have flabby upper arms, even the simplest movement like waving can be an embarrassment. When you come in for a CoolSculpting treatment at our medical spa, your arms will be zapped with cold to allow for a slimmer, tighter-looking appearance.
Double Chin – Regardless of age, excess fat can find its way beneath your chin and neck—creating the dreaded double chin. In as little as one session, you can say goodbye to the unwanted fat and gain a more youthful-looking canvas.
In as little as one treatment session, you can enjoy a more slender appearance. The procedure itself is quick and painless, so many of our clients come in on their lunch break. Depending on which area(s) you are having treated, the procedure will generally take about an hour to complete.
During your session, your clinician will carefully apply the cooling technology to your desired areas. Generally, clients feel nothing more than just a slight tingling during the procedure. As you lie back to read, watch a movie or play on your phone or tablet, your unwanted fat cells will literally be frozen off of you. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
The treatment itself is what freezes your targeted fat cells, but the true magic happens over the next few weeks or months. Gradually, your crystallized cells will die off and your body will naturally dispose of them. You can rest assured that your surrounding tissues will go unharmed.
You are free to return to work and other normal daily activities immediately following your CoolSculpting treatment. While there is no downtime, you may experience some very minor stinging after your session, but this will subside within the first few hours.
