How to get rid of stubborn body fat
Freeze fat cells with Coolsculpting treatment
Stubborn fat that just won’t budge is the bane of my life, I do my best to eat a healthy vegetarian diet and exercise as much as I can around university and home office life. But the excess fat around my belly, arms and love handles always make me reach for the comfortable loose clothing in my wardrobe as opposed to the fitted tops and dresses that just don’t look as flattering on me with an extra spare tyre around my waist.
I’m forever searching Google looking for ways to burn fat, but until recently it never occurred to me that you could instead freeze fat to make it disappear with new state of the art machinery called Coolsculpting.
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive treatment that uses a technology called Cryolipolysis to freeze excess fat cells on stubborn areas of the body such as the flanks (love handles), under the buttocks, inner & outer thighs, under the chin, upper arms and the abdominal area. Pulse Light Clinic in London who offer the effective treatment have had some fantastic results from clients as you can see in the before and after video below.
How does Coolsculpting work?
Coolsculpting works by using an applicator that sucks onto the excess skin to freeze the targeted fat cells over 30 minutes to 1 hour. As I’ve recently had the treatment myself the suction and freezing can be uncomfortable but it's not painful. Your free to play on your phone or read a book while your fat is freezing. Once the treatment is complete the team at Pulse Light Clinic will massage the area for two minutes to break down the frozen fat cells. The destroyed fat cells will then be flushed out of the body through your urine over the next 2-3 months. Although it takes awhile for the fat cells to disappear this is beneficial so that the body gradually tightens where the excess fat used to be so that you’re not left with loose skin.
Benefits of Coolsculpting treatment

What to do before & after treatment
Prior to treatment drink at least 2 litres of water, as well as after treatment and every day during the 2-3 months to help your body flush out as much destroyed fat cells as possible. Massaging the area with an oil such as Vitamin E can help break down the fat cells too.
