Is CoolSculpting Worth it?

One of the biggest questions we receive from individuals who are entertaining the idea of CoolSculpting is:  Is CoolSculpting actually worth it?  After all, it’s a monetary investment, a time investment and ultimately, an emotional investment in how you’d ideally like to feel about your body.  This is the easiest question for our CoolSculpting experts to answer; and the answer is yes, it’s worth it!

For those who are interested in a non-invasive and pain-free fat loss solution without having to stress about downtime, incisions and substantial side effects, CoolSculpting is the ultimate answer.  If you’ve followed our blog, then you already know that this procedure was developed after Harvard physicians noticed shrinking cheeks in children who ate a lot of popsicles.

Yes, while witnessing something as simple as kids eating popsicles, doctors went on to invent this revolutionary fat cell-eliminating technique.  These doctors noticed that, when applying freezing temperatures, fat cells were crystalized and other cells remained intact.  They then extensively researched the science behind these effects and the ways in which they could apply it to adults today.

5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Trying CoolSculpting

Have you been researching CoolSculpting for some time, but have yet to make an appointment and try it out?  If you answered yes, then it’s time to get your questions answered once and for all.  It may be that you’re considering the choice between CoolSculpting and Liposuction, or it may be that you just aren’t sure of the potential side-effects.

Whatever the case may be, our experts at Renew MD have come up with a list of 5 questions to ask yourself before undergoing this non-invasive fat loss procedure.  Once you’ve answered these 5 questions, you should be ready to set up your consultation.  From there, our technicians will work with you to get you to that body you’ve been dreaming of.

1. Am I Worried About Safety?

Our technicians are often questioned about the safety of this procedure.  Patients ask, “How could there possibly be a safe and non-invasive procedure that permanently eliminates fat cells in my problem areas?”  We get it; it sounds too good to be true.  However, the truth is that this procedure is completely safe.

Our experts use the innovative CoolSculpting tool to freeze away your fat cells for good.  In the months following the procedure, your body will naturally eliminate the frozen cells, leaving behind the rest of your  completely healthy and unaffected tissues.  Over 2 million people have tried this procedure, and men and women everywhere are enjoying the benefits of contouring their body without having to be cut open or having to take unhealthy pharmaceuticals or supplements.

2. Do I Understand the Procedure?

Many fat loss procedures can seem exceedingly complex and difficult to fully understand.  Luckily, with CoolSculpting, the science and rationale behind it is sound and easily comprehendible.  Years ago, Harvard doctors came upon this fat loss solution after feeding popsicles to children.  When the kids continually ate these frozen treats, the fat in their cheeks would diminish.

These doctors discovered that fat cells were uniquely susceptible to cold, while other tissues remained unscathed.  This knowledge was then applied to adults and their fat cells, and the rest is history!

It’s important to note that one procedure is often not enough to see the exact results you want.  Schedule a free consultation with our team at Renew MD, and our technicians will be able to discuss with you just how many treatments will be needed to achieve your fat loss goals.

    3. Have I thought of Alternatives to CoolSculpting?

    As the adage goes, “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.”  Of course there are other fat-loss options for you to consider.  The most common alternative is liposuction, and if that is an option you’d like to explore, Renew MD can help.

    However, if you’re interested in a procedure that is noninvasive, requires no down-time, and is completely safe with virtually no side-effects, there is truly no other option that is comparable to CoolSculpting.

    4. Are Others Actually Seeing Results?

    In today’s world, it’s not uncommon that marketing tactics and the news fabricate or embellish the truth to accomplish a goal or to make a sale.  That is not the case with this procedure.  CoolSculpting has gained much notoriety in recent years because of how many people are in love with their results.

    From Debra Messing to Khloe Kardashian, celebrities and everyday people alike are opting for this procedure to eliminate that pesky fat in our trouble zones that refuses to go away.  This easy and safe fat loss tool is proven to give you results.

    5. Am I a Candidate?

    If you are a man or woman who is within 30 pounds of your goal weight, you could be the perfect candidate for CoolSculpting.  It doesn’t take much.  If you’ve been looking into this procedure to help rid yourself of your fatty trouble zones, chances are you already know the areas you’d like to target.

    If you are hoping to reduce the fat in your inner thighs, back, chin, bra bulge, love handles, etc., then CoolSculpting may be the perfect solution for you.  To determine if you’re an ideal candidate for this procedure at Renew MD, feel free to take our quiz.

How to Prep Your Body For CoolSculpting

In previous posts, we’ve discussed what an ideal CoolSculpting candidate looks like, and why they should be within 30 pounds of their target weight prior to undergoing this non-invasive and pain-free procedure.  For some, reaching this target weight can seem daunting and virtually unachievable.  Today, we’d like to offer some lifestyle tips our clients have had success with, in hopes of helping you to be one step closer to your desired body type and to a happier you.

If you are displeased with your current weight, and wish to benefit from CoolSculpting, then you have mentally taken that first step towards achieving your goal.  However, the most well-known adages pertaining to weight loss, healthy diet and exercise can often deter even the most disciplined person from making good decisions in terms of food and fitness routine.  Below we will discuss a few time-tested and sure fire ways in which you can begin to change your life for the better, prior to visiting our office for your CoolSculpting.

Healthy Eating is a MUST.

While genetic predispositions to weight gain, stress in the work or home environment, and lack of nutritional conveniences all play a part in gradual weight gain and body dissatisfaction, there are a few ways in which you can adjust your eating habits to counter the weight loss obstacles you face.

Watch the Carbs!

In today’s world, there is a substitute for everything.  From sugar to meat to dairy, healthier options are being made available to the masses.  Carbohydrates – specifically simple carbs – are well-known for reducing good cholesterol, causing higher blood pressure and increasing the amount of fat in your blood; many things you don’t want happening in your body.

To combat these negative side-effects, we posit that substituting the most common grains for either whole-grain options or vegetable substitutes is an easy and often fun way of eating healthy.  For example, rather than going for that bog bowl of traditional chicken alfredo, swap out the pasta for spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.  You’d be surprised at how tasty and satisfying these substitutions are!

Additionally, grain-free and gluten free breads are gaining popularity amid the competition of white flour offerings.  Often, grain or gluten free breads contain much needed protein, antioxidants and other compounds that promote overall health and weight stabilization.

Fall In Love with Veggies!

Because our parents force fed us broccoli and carrots as children, many of us now associate veggies with weird textures, undesirable flavors and an overall unsatisfactory dining experience.  It’s time to uproot these notions to make way for a love of vegetables.

When properly cooked and seasoned, vegetables, alongside a healthy protein such as fish or chicken, offer a delectable addition, while also promoting a healthy lifestyle.  As a side, try cooking cauliflower rice in lieu of white rice, or opt for baked sweet potatoes over French fries.  For healthy and delicious recipes that are easy and fit any budget, visit any of these sites:

You Need to Get Your Body Moving.

The fact is, some of us just hate working out.  If you were a fitness model with a perfect figure, you probably wouldn’t have need for our CoolSculpting service.  No one’s body is perfect, and every person struggles with image.  And while eating properly steers you toward the direction of a healthy and happy body, it is important to get your body moving.

Although weightlifting and traditional cardiovascular exercises like running or biking are popular modes of exercise, they are not the only answer.  For those of you who wish to be more active but cringe at the idea of a habitual workout routine, there are several solutions.

Try a Zumba Class!

Zumba is the type of dance exercise class that requires you leave your ego and troubles at the door.  Dance fitness has revolutionized the exercise industry, and has provided men and women across the globe with a fun and vibrant activity.

People of all ages, genders and nationalities are welcome to come together and dance while toning their muscles, increasing flexibility and partaking in cardio.  For more information about Zumba, and how to find a class near you, click here.

Invest in New Office Furniture

While taking time out of your day to visit your local gym or to take a brisk walk is optimal, there are a few simple things you can change in the workplace to assist with weight loss that don’t require additional time.  First, rather than sitting in an office chair for 8+ hours, straining your back and depriving your body of muscle stimulation, invest in a ball office chair.  These “chairs” help to continually engage your core and to silently burn calories while you work.

Another way to promote weight loss in the workplace is to forego the standard sitting desk and invest in a standing desk.  These platforms lift upward and allow you to stand while working at your computer, thus causing you to engage your leg muscles throughout the day.

Enlist The Support of a Friend

One of the most difficult challenges associated with trying to lose weight is having to do so alone.  Your close family members and friends who care about your wellbeing can serve as a support system for your weight loss goals.  Request the backing of a friend who can offer recipe ideas, emotional support and perhaps even join you in your efforts.

Building a support system around any goal, including your weight loss goals will make your journey seem less daunting.  Remember that your decisions serve to bring you more happiness and healthiness, and those in your life that you care for will be there for you.

Final Thoughts

CoolSculpting kills the fat cells stored in the parts of your body where your diet and exercise has yet to have an impact.  It does not serve to replace an overall healthy lifestyle, and should not be considered for those who are more than 30 pounds away from their ideal weight.

Work hard to get yourself to within that range and we will help you to cross the finish line of your ideal body.  Adjust your eating habits to include nutrient-rich and wholesome foods.  Research and discover a mode of exercise that fits your schedule and that brings your joy.

As soon as you’ve done the initial leg work and are ready to join our happy clients at Renew MD who’ve seen amazing results from our CoolSculpting procedure, give our team of experts a call for a free consultation and to set up your first CoolSculpting appointment.  If you have any questions, our talented group of technicians has answers.
