The Difference between weight loss and fat reduction

Share:

CoolSculpting, the most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world is transforming the physiques of millions of men and women. However, many individuals interested in freezing their fat mistakenly assume that CoolSculpting is a weight loss treatment. Learn more about the differences between losing weight and losing fat to discover if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Losing Weight and Gaining Weight

The amount of fat cells you have in your body becomes fixed by the time you reach adulthood. This means the body does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells you have. Also known as adipocytes or lipocytes, fat cells are a specific type of cell that specializes in storing energy. Think of them as a plastic bag designed to hold fat. When the body consumes more fat than it needs, it stores the extra energy in adipocytes. When the body needs more energy than it consumes, its burns off fat that is stored in its adipocytes.

When you gain weight, the body does not create new fat cells. It stores the excess fat in the existing adipocytes. This expands the fat cells. When you lose weight the body, it does not get rid of fat cells. Rather, it burns some of the fat stored in its adipocytes. This shrinks fat cells. Therefore, when you lose or gain weight, you do not lose and gain fat cells. Rather, your fat cells shrink and expand.

What is Fat Reduction?

Fat reduction is different from weight loss. It does not shrink fat cells; rather, it removes a portion of fat cells from the body. During your CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells are frozen in a process known as cryolipolysis. When frozen, fat cells are fatally damaged and can no longer store fat. This flags the damaged fat cells to be collected and processed out of the body in the form of waste.¹

Reducing fat with CoolSculpting

According to scientific research published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology “cryolipolysis was shown to reduce subcutaneous fat at the treatment site by up to 25% after one treatment.”¹ Such a drastic reduction in the number of fat cells at a given treatment site results in visible fat reduction. You will not lose weight but you will look and feel skinnier.

The best part about fat reduction is once fat cells are removed from the body, they are gone for good. The body does not create more fat cells and cannot replace the destroyed fat cells that were frozen during the CoolSculpting treatment. This results in long-term fat reduction.¹

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not intended to help you lose weight. It is designed to reduce fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is a healthy man or women who struggle to reduce stubborn bulges such as belly fat, love handles, double chins, upper arm fat, thigh fat and other tenacious fat deposits.

The best way to find out if CoolSculpting is right for you is to contact the fat reduction specialists at SKINNEY Medspa. As the top selling provider of CoolSculpting in the United States, SKINNEY Medspa is nationally recognized for delivering unparalleled results.
