As the top provider for CoolSculpting Elite in Phoenix, we know that it’s common for men and women to want to know if they have the “right body type” or if they’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite. First, let’s be clear – there is never any “right” or “wrong” body type! Just like every person is a unique individual on the inside, every person is uniquely different on the outside. All bodies are created different, and each body responds to diet, exercise, and even fat-freezing differently.
First, What is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite is the newest fat-freezing technology we are proud to offer at Bodify! CoolSculpting Elite is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that targets fat cells with a blast of extreme cold. Scientists and researchers realized a while ago that fat cells don’t like cold temperatures so the CoolSculpting Elite’s targeted applicator freezes fat cells so they die, and then the body naturally expels those dead fat cells leaving a more contoured look in the targeted area. Other cells aren’t harmed in the process, and most clients feel minimal discomfort during and after treatment! CoolSculpting Elite delivers faster and dramatic results than our traditional CoolSculpting applicators, so it’s truly the way to go for clients who need help getting rid of stubborn fat. Both men and women love freezing their fat away with CoolSculpting Elite because of the results they get and there’s no downtime; in fact, most people can resume their normal activities the same day as their treatment!
CoolSculpting Elite Works With Every Body Type
Alright, let’s talk about body type. In the 1940s, Dr. W.H. Sheldon categorized bodies into three different types, and he even went so far as to theorize that body type, or somatotype, even impacted certain physiological and psychological characteristics (more on that in a minute). Here are the three categories of body types:
- Ectomorph: Ectomorphs are typically long and lean, and they typically have a hard time building muscle mass or gaining weight. Lucky for them, ectomorphs have high metabolisms which makes it easy to maintain that slim figure!
- Mesomorph: Someone who’s classified as a mesomorph has a more athletic build, and it’s easier for them to build muscle. They gain weight easier than ectomorphs, but their body maintains more of a “fit” appearance because of their predisposition to being more muscular.
- Endomorph: Endomorphs have short, solid physiques with a soft, round body. They have a slower metabolism which means they gain fat easier and find it very difficult to lose weight.
However, according to the National Academy of Sports Medicine, “Some notions of Sheldon’s theory have held up over time, providing the foundation for more accepted applications of somatotyping, but much of it has not.” For example, the doctor’s theory that someone’s personality is determined by their body composition has been entirely abandoned by the psychological community. We also know now that no one is hopelessly predetermined to either be fat, muscular, or thin because of prenatal development. NASM reports, “What makes our bodies what they are is an absolutely vast array of environmental and social influences, genetic variations, geographic locations, and personal decisions across the entire lifespan.” Even more so, we know that people can be a combination of two body types or even all three!
So, here’s some really good news: CoolSculpting Elite works with every body type! No matter if you’re a thin lean ectomorph, a solid strong mesomorph, a beautifully “soft” endomorph, or a mix of all three – you likely have fat and Bodify can freeze it with the amazing CoolSculpting Elite technology. When you come in for a complimentary consult, our amazing team can determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite. To break it down, it doesn’t matter what body type you have; you’re a good candidate if you have stubborn, unwanted fat that’s hindering you from looking or feeling your best. To be fair though, not all fat is created equal – people have two distinct types of fat in their bodies: subcutaneous fat (the kind that may roll over the waistband of your pants) and visceral fat (the stuff that lines your organs and is associated with diabetes and heart disease). CoolSculpting Elite works best on subcutaneous fat, and the general rule of thumb of what makes someone a good candidate for targeting subcutaneous fat is if they are able to grab and pinch of inch.
Here are some questions to ask yourself if you’re wondering if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite with Bodify:
- Are you within 5-35 pounds of your ideal weight for your height?
- Are you already healthy and active?
- Are you more interested in losing inches than weight?
- Are you frustrated that diet and exercise aren’t targeting your trouble spots?
- Are you ready to feel more confident?
If you answered “yes!” to those questions, then let’s get started!
