It is not in your head – diet and exercise-resistant fat exists, especially in areas such as the tummy, chin and “love handles.” Because not all fat cells are created equal, some are more responsive to diet and exercise and can increase and decrease in size. Other fat cells are more resistant to diet and exercise due to hormones and genetics and can develop into areas of unwanted fat.
These troublesome areas tend to “expand” after a pregnancy or as we age. By adolescence, we have all of the fat cells we will ever have, so at no time in our adult lives will we ever “grow” more fat cells. Our hormones and genetics often determine how many fat cells we have and where our “problem areas” will be concentrated, and no amount of diet and exercise will ever get rid of that paunch or bulge of unwanted fat. Unfortunately, diet and exercise alone cannot destroy fat cells.
The only way to get rid of this unwanted fat is to decrease the number of fat cells that are stored in the subcutaneous layer, which can be accomplished with a limited selection of body contouring procedures, such as CoolSculpting. Unlike other non-surgical body contouring procedures, CoolSculpting does not shrink fat cells – it destroys them by using controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat. Approximately 20% of fat cells in a treated area go through a natural cell death process and flush out of your body after each CoolSculpting treatment.
The results are proven, noticeable and long-lasting – so that you will look great from every angle!
