For many people beginning a weight loss journey, it can restore a sense of control. Whether that’s through diet, exercise or even prescription medication, there are many options available to reach your health and wellness goals. Semaglutide in particular has garnered interest as a means for weight loss, helping certain adults reduce their food intake and lose weight over time. However, while shedding pounds is in your control, where or how they’re being shed is unfortunately out of your hands with semaglutide. This is where a targeted fat reduction treatment like CoolSculpting® Elite is needed.
CoolSculpting begins where semaglutide leaves off, targeting specific areas of stubborn fat to achieve the body shape you desire — here’s how:
Semaglutide ends with a lower number on the scale.
Semaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, mimics the GLP-1 hormone which prompts the body to produce more insulin and reduce blood glucose levels. This type of medication can help obese adults and those with certain health conditions safely lose weight by diminishing cravings and increasing satiety. Seeing those numbers go down can be extremely motivating to keep the momentum going on your weight loss journey.
But what many people taking semaglutide come to realize is it tackles weight loss in a broader sense and is less successful in addressing localized fat in certain areas. An important component for many people wanting to lose weight is to attain a more toned, trimmer physical appearance. While exercise in combination with your semaglutide injections may help, there are pockets of fat on the body that are resistant to even the most rigorous workout routine.
CoolSculpting Elite begins with targeted fat reduction.
You can be active, eat well and still have areas of stubborn fat that won’t budge. Even after being on weight loss medication, your body goals can still be left unmet. CoolSculpting Elite is an excellent treatment to pick up where semaglutide has left off, eliminating subcutaneous fat on nine areas of the body, including back fat, bra fat, flanks, abdomen, thighs and under the buttocks, with little to no downtime.
What makes FDA-cleared CoolSculpting Elite the most advanced CoolSculpting technology on the market are its dual applicators, newly redesigned with comfortable C-shaped cups. This technology can treat more areas of fat at once as well as more tissue than its predecessor. Using cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting Elite freezes and disables targeted fat cells beneath the surface of the skin without damaging the skin itself.
CoolSculpting Elite ends with a more sculpted physique.
CoolSculpting Elite not only performs 20-25% fat reduction in your treated area, but it also sculpts your desired body shape. Following your recommended number of treatments, your body will naturally and gradually eliminate the disabled fat cells to reveal natural-looking improvements to your contours. Typically, it takes one to three months to see improvements, with optimal results appearing after four months. In conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, your body contouring results can be long-lasting. While CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight loss treatment, by trimming down pinchable fat at the waistline, it may help you go down a pant size or two!
