How CoolSculpting® Can Boost Your Confidence
Do you struggle with stubborn fat, no matter how hard you diet and exercise? The battle against body fat can rage on for what seems like forever and tank your confidence. Enter CoolSculpting®. Read on to learn about this secret fat-fighting weapon.

Everyone, from your friends to your favorite influencers, has an opinion on how to get a tight, toned body. And seeing those filtered photos of bikini-clad, muscled-up folks living their best lives, we understand why you want a piece of the pie. 

However, it’s not always that simple. All too often, your dream body is just out of reach — that is until you learn about CoolSculpting®.

Dr. Kathleen Smith and our team at Dermatology Specialists of Atlanta in Decatur, Georgia, are proud to offer our patients a safe and effective way to jump over the hurdles of stubborn fat loss, get the body they’ve been working so hard for, and ultimately, feel more confident than ever. 

Here’s a closer look. 

Why do I struggle to get the body I want?

For some, losing weight and burning fat seems to be a no-brainer: cut calories, clock some time on the treadmill, and watch the weight fall off and the muscle tone emerge. For most others, the journey is far more complicated. 

What works for your friends and coworkers likely won’t work for you. What’s even more frustrating is that the most basic tricks (diet and exercise) could actually be the reason you’re not seeing progress. 

For instance, if you only focus on cardio and spend all your time huffing and puffing on the treadmill, you could do more harm than good. Extended cardio sessions kick your appetite into overdrive and release hormones that make your body hang on to fat, ultimately defeating the point of working out in the first place. 

Other weight loss faux pas you may not even realize you’re making include:

  • Not managing stress
  • Neglecting your sleeping habits
  • Dehydration
  • Drinking calories in alcohol and sugary drinks

We also see many frustrated with the yo-yo effects of crash and fad diets, and others stall out simply because they have unrealistic expectations. 

It’s incredibly discouraging to put in so much time and effort and not see results. That’s where CoolSculpting comes in.

Your CoolSculpting journey

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze, shrink, and eventually eliminate stubborn fat cells resistant to diet and exercise. Less fat results in a more toned, defined, and sculpted body.

CoolSculpting delivers natural-looking, gradual results. Unlike other treatments that promise instant weight loss or dramatic changes, CoolSculpting works with your body's natural processes, eliminating fat cells over time (around 3-4 months). That means you can enjoy a more contoured silhouette without anyone knowing you had a procedure done.

Treatments work best when you’re close to your target weight. We can use CoolSculpting to target virtually any trouble spot on your body, but the most common areas include the abdomen, thighs, love handles, and double chin. 

To get the best results, we recommend that you maintain a balanced diet and regular exercise routine, as well as avoid smoking, manage stress, stay hydrated, and limit alcohol consumption.

What to expect

We love CoolSculpting because it doesn't require surgery, needles, or downtime. Traditional fat-reducing procedures like liposuction involve incisions and anesthesia, but CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive procedure that can be done in as little as 30 minutes. 

Other than some redness, tenderness, and bruising at the treatment site, you can go back to your normal activities immediately after the treatment without any restrictions or recovery time.

Bonus: CoolSculpting treatments are well-tolerated and virtually painless. Some of our patients wind up napping during their appointments. 

But by far, the most significant benefit of CoolSculpting is the boost in confidence it can provide. 

Research shows that feeling good about your body affects almost every facet of your life. A positive body image reduces your risk for mental health issues and enhances life satisfaction. 

You may find yourself more willing to try new things, break out those skinny jeans, or engage in activities you previously avoided. You may also notice that you have more energy and enthusiasm for life, as you're no longer held back by self-consciousness or insecurity.

The bottom line

Of course, CoolSculpting is not a magic bullet nor a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. But if you're looking for an extra boost to help you achieve your body goals and feel more confident in your skin, CoolSculpting could be just what you need.
