Springtime is upon us, which means summer is not far off; and, really, who takes a break from their fitness goals living in a location such as ours? If you live in the beach area, you know that there are always opportunities to get out and be active, to wear shorts and tank tops and flip flops regardless of the weather. Being that this is the norm in La Jolla and throughout most of San Diego, there is a strong push for most people to maintain their fitness goals. Sometimes, though, we have a hard time getting to that grand finale. Whatever your grand finale looks like, a flat stomach, tight thighs, or not having that double-chin anymore, you may reach a point where your efforts plateau. La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic now has the innovative technology to help you through to the other side.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting has been widely used for so many years now that most people have at least heard of this “fat-freezing” treatment. The FDA-cleared device has helped over a million people achieve their desired body contours. We are pleased to now have this technology available to our clients. CoolSculpting treatments last less than an hour per treatment area. During a session, an area of excess fat is held in a cooling applicator. This applicator delivers near-freezing temperatures into the subcutaneous tissue, which causes the liquid inside of fat cells to crystallize. As a result, the body perceives these cells to be damaged and the immune system eliminates them through the lymph. This process is called cryolipolysis. According to clinical studies, cryolipolysis can destroy up to 25% of fat cells in a target area in one sitting.
What Does CoolSculpting Have to Do with Fitness Goals?
Fitness goals often revolve around looking a certain way, not being able to bench-press a certain amount of weight. When we want to achieve a goal, such as flattening the stomach, we want to see results soon after we begin implementing action steps like eating better, limiting alcohol, and working out regularly. If you began taking steps soon after the new year and aren’t seeing the degree of improvement you thought you would, your motivation may be starting to wane. In many cases, when motivation takes a dip, so do efforts to continue toning up. This is where CoolSculpting comes in. This treatment can enhance the fat-burning that’s happening in the gym and provoke the body-slimming you’ve been working towards.
