Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss | CoolSculpting®

What’s the Difference Between Getting Rid of Fat and Losing Weight?
Many Sona MedSpa clients interested in the CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment have the very common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same things. They are not. While as we all know maintaining a healthy weight is an important part of physical health, it does not always equate to the look you want. That means you could spend months dieting, working out, and staying fit, and still not get rid of those love handles or problem areas around your stomach that you just can’t stand. CoolSculpting is designed specifically to help you target stubborn fat in those areas.
When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.
The CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can’t get bigger. And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good.
After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens when you lose weight, there’s no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.
