Fat reduction vs Weight loss

Fat freezing at Fresh Medical Spa

It may be surprising to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. The key difference: what actually happens to your fat cells.

Sometime during our teenage years the number of fat cells in our bodies typically become fixed. Losing or gaining weight generally will not increase or decrease the number of fat cells we have (remember, these are fixed). Instead, weight changes will affect the size of these fat cells.

As you can see from the above diagram, losing weight doesn’t make these fat cells go away, it simply shrinks them. Here’s where CoolSculpting fits in: The CoolScupting fat freezing procedure REDUCES the number of fat cells in the treated area by approximately 20-25%. In the weeks that follow, these fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated. The result: the fat cells are gone for good.
