When it comes to body image and what should or shouldn’t be considered ideal, it is completely subjective. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say and that never rings more true than when someone stands in front of a mirror perhaps wishing they could just trim some fat off their legs or slim their arms just a little. Whatever someone’s personal desires may be, fat loss can be a trying journey for different people and reasons.
While some people may take an interest in their own health and wellbeing, by paying a certain amount of attention to how they look, taking part in exercise and following a healthy diet, many still find that areas of stubborn fat just don’t seem to budge no matter how intense their dedication. These areas of collected fat may be stored anywhere on the body, from under the chin and around the face to arms, tummies, backs, and thighs. People may be tempted to try ‘spot reducing exercises’ to target these areas, unfortunately a majority of studies have debunked spot reduction, citing it to be an ineffective form of weight loss, as it does not correlate with how the body burns fat.
Understanding fat loss
The human body can use stored fat for energy; when the fat molecule is broken down during exercise, for example, it is converted to energy, carbon dioxide, and water. People breathe out the carbon dioxide and sweat out the water while the energy is burned off to perform tasks. The fat cells used for this process can be taken from anywhere in the body, which is why spot reduction is considered a myth because people can’t control where the fat is being taken from. So while someone may be working extra hard on their triceps, trying to slim their arms, what they will accomplish is strengthening that muscle, however they will not necessarily be reducing the spot of targeted fat.
What’s the solution to stubborn fat pockets?
So if doing 1000 crunches isn’t going to shift that tummy then what is the solution for London based clients? CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire offers a potential solution that is non-invasive and can have long term results in reducing pockets of fat that might be particularly difficult to shift by traditional methods.
The freezing treatment on offer reduces body fat in targeted areas to help clients achieve the more sculpted body they may desire, whether it be a stronger silhouette or a more curvaceous waistline, CoolSculpting is a tool that is there to help.
How it works
The procedure is called cryolipolysis, it is non-invasive and can take between 30 to 60 minutes to complete. An area of fat is placed between two panels that then freeze the fat cells, thus killing them off. The fat cells then make their way through the body and are processed through the liver after several weeks of treatment. Your body takes care of this process while you get on with your life and in a few short months visible results will appear and you can enjoy your new contours.
