Can CoolSculpting® Freeze Away my Love Handles?

Do you have love handles? Are you self-conscious about small fat pockets and want to reduce them without surgery? CoolSculpting treatment may be the solution for you. This noninvasive body sculpting procedure at Ageless Grace can help you achieve a slimmer look and get rid of love handles without any major downtime.

Love handles are small accumulations of fat located on the sides of the hips and abdomen. Board-certified physician Dr. Lily Phillips can specifically target these areas by simply freezing the fat away. Keep reading to learn about CoolSculpting, how it works, and what to expect from treatment in Murrieta, CA.

What causes love handles?

Love handles are a common term associated with fat buildup around the middle. They can make you seem heavier than you really are and make clothing more difficult to wear. The fat in your love handles can be stubborn because of its location, making it challenging to target this area with diet or exercise alone.

While unwanted pounds can create love handles, it's not the only cause. Genetics or previous pregnancies can also cause unwanted fat to accumulate in the hips and abdomen. CoolSculpting is designed to remove excess fat in this area and help you achieve a slimmer look.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is a body sculpting procedure that uses controlled cooling to target fat cells. Ageless Grace uses a specialized device that doesn't require any needles or incisions. As a result, you'll have minimal discomfort and no downtime. Once the fat cells are treated, your body naturally processes the cells and slowly gets rid of them over time.

Instead of working on large areas like traditional weight loss procedures, CoolSculpting treatment targets specific areas for maximum results. Afterward, you can expect some discomfort as well as numbness, tingling, redness, and minor bruising at the site of treatment. These are normal side effects that subside within a short period after your initial appointment in Murrieta.

What will happen to my love handles?

It's important to understand that CoolSculpting won't provide instant results in Temecula, Menifee, Lake Elsinore, or Murrieta, CA. However, it can help get rid of love handles in as little as three weeks and give you leaner contours in 1 – 3 months. Dr. Phillips and the trained staff at Ageless Grace know how to help you achieve your ideal appearance in natural and subtle ways.

How do I keep my CoolSculpting results?

The key to keeping your CoolSculpting results is continuing healthy habits, like consistent diet and exercise. Gaining weight after treatment may lead to the same areas of fat buildup in the love handles.

It's also important to understand that CoolSculpting treatment isn't a comprehensive weight loss solution or way to get fit. With the right lifestyle choices, you can maintain a leaner appearance and a slimmer waistline you love for years to come.
