Bodify is proud to be the number one CoolSculpting provider in Arizona, with over 22,000 treatments performed to date. That means.. we’ve met with a LOT of women and men over the years! Our clients come to us for a variety of reasons, and we’re here to debunk one of the most common myths when it comes to CoolSculpting! There’s a common misconception that only “lazy” or “fat” people get CoolSculpting as a way to “cheat the system” or “take the easy way out” to get their dream body without putting in any hard work. Nothing could be further from the truth. From our extensive experience as CoolSculpting experts, most people who get CoolSculpting are actually men and women who are active, eat well, and are already at a healthy weight!
Who’s an Ideal CoolSculpting Candidate?
At our two CoolSculpting locations in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Bodify has been fortunate enough to be trusted to freeze the fat away from literally thousands of clients – both men and women. Since CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, the vast majority of our clients are actually within a few pounds of their ideal weight for their height (usually within 5-40 pounds). CoolSculpting is truly ideal for people who are relatively in shape, but might have a few “trouble spots” that are stubborn and can’t be reduced with just diet and exercise. CoolSculpting’s controlled freezing applicators can reduce fat in a targeted area up to 20%, because fat cells hate the cold and actually “die” when frozen at such extreme temperatures. The body then naturally flushes those dead cells from the system over a few weeks to a few months. This process leaves the targeted area visibly more contoured than before CoolSculpting, but overall – it doesn’t result in significant weight loss.
Most CoolSculpting Clients Are Healthy, Active People!
Nearly everyone has areas of their body they are self-conscious about. From the stomach to “love handles” to “double chins” to underneath the arms to the thighs, even the most active people who eat well have an area they want to target.
It’s just a fact of life that even if you’re healthy, eat well, and exercise, there are stubborn pockets of fat that could remain, and that’s where CoolSculpting comes in. There are a variety of reasons why even the most healthy, active people would need to use a fat-reducing technology like CoolSculpting to target those stubborn areas of fat. Here are a couple of those reasons:
- Genetics. Genetics is a huge factor in whether or not someone has fat bulges that stick around! According to shape.com, when it comes to belly fat – “Studies of twins and families show that the amount of ab fat each person carries is inherited-roughly 30 to 70 percent of the total variation in waist size from person to person is attributable to genetics-and that apple-shaped physiques are more likely to be passed down than other body types.”
- Age! Of course, age plays a big role in why it’s difficult to get rid of fat bulges on the body. As we age, our metabolism slows down, and there’s a lot of hormonal changes that occur. Many Bodify clients are older men and women who aren’t happy with the stubborn fat that has crept up on them as they’ve aged, even though they’ve stayed active and maintained a healthy weight.
CoolSculpting is NOT Cheating
There are other factors beyond genetics and age that can contribute to stubborn fat which makes CoolSculpting an ideal solution to freeze fat away and contour the body. It can be frustrating to exercise consistently and eat healthy and still be self-conscious about parts of your body, so it’s important to understand that CoolSculpting is NOT cheating or taking the “easy way out.” It’s an amazing technology that helps men and women look better, and more importantly feel better, about themselves.
