As a coronavirus never before identified, COVID-19 is changing how we perform every aspect of life. Relearning how to access important wellness and medical care like OB/GYN care is just one of many new challenges.
Your body fat plays an essential role in your overall health. Not only does it insulate and cushion your internal structures, but it also provides energy for your metabolism. Despite the importance of your fat cells, they can become a problem when they stop responding to diet and exercise.
While you may think you gain and lose fat over your lifetime, you don’t. After puberty, you don’t gain or lose fat cells. Instead, you grow or shrink them. Your genes help determine how many fat cells you have and where they’re located.
Dr. Brandon M. Lingenfelter understands that there’s more to fat loss that how many calories you consume and burn. Genetics play a significant role as well. At his clinic in Princeton, West Virginia, he offers the latest, noninvasive body contouring technology that can bust your fat once and for all. Welcome to CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive therapy that uses cold temperatures to eliminate your unwanted body fat. This innovative approach works to reduce the number of fat cells you have instead of simply making them smaller.
During your CoolSculpting treatment, Dr. Lingenfelter uses specially designed applicators to deliver specific amounts of cold to your unwanted body fat. These precise temperatures damage the structures of your fat cells and cause them to die. Afterward, your lymphatic system absorbs them and flushes them from your body permanently.
Dr. Lingenfelter recommends this cutting-edge therapy to remove unwanted fat from even the most stubborn areas, including:
With CoolSculpting, you can eliminate 20-25% of unwanted fat from your treatment site in just one session.
CoolSculpting treatments take 35-60 minutes, and you can relax, read, or get some work done while sessions are underway.
During your appointment, Dr. Lingenfelter selects the ideal CoolSculpting applicator to address your unwanted body fat. After applying a protective gel to the area, he secures the applicator in place.
As CoolSculpting starts its work, you might notice a gentle suction at the site when the applicator pulls up on the section being treated. When the cooling begins, the area may feel slightly numb or tingly, but CoolSculpting treatments come with minimal discomfort.
When your treatment finishes, Dr. Lingenfelter takes off the applicator and gently massages the site to help break up your treated cells. This part is an important step, because it helps your body flush your dead fat cells from your system.
After your session, you can resume your normal activities immediately. Over the next few weeks, you’ll begin to see changes in your body where your treatment took place. Most men and women reach their optimal results within 6-8 weeks, though your body may continue eliminating your dead cells for up to 4-6 months.
To help you get the best results, Dr. Lingenfelter will work closely with you to develop a treatment strategy that might include multiple CoolSculpting sessions. Once you banish your unwanted fat, you can maintain your new body with diet and exercise.
