YAHOO News: The Future is Here – Coolsculpting Will Freeze your Fat off your Love Handles

The Greenwich Medical Spa is a top provider of CoolSculpting in Greenwich area. Here’s a great video from Yahoo News featuring CoolSculpting. A guy many can relate to – athletic, in good shape his whole life, but now in his 40’s suddenly had a gut!

Here’s Troy’s story.

I’d seen the billboards advertising CoolSculpting and I was skeptical. In a country consumed with weight loss and get-thin-quick gimmicks, it’s sometimes hard to tell what’s legit and what isn’t. But I wanted to be impartial, so I went into Dr. Gordon Sasaki’s office with an open mind.

What I learned surprised me. I expected a hardcore sales pitch from Dr. Sasaki and the CoolSculpting reps. Instead I got a no-nonsense discussion about science and the physiology behind weight loss and fat loss. CoolSculpting isn’t a process they recommend for everyone. And it’s not so much about overall weight loss as it is focused on fat loss — getting rid of that stubborn fat that even fit, healthy people have lingering around their midsection. This was certainly refreshing. Where were the miracle claims? Where were the obviously altered before and after photos that strained credulity?

Troy is a guy many men can relate to. Athletic, married with kids, his weight has fluctuated over the years. Overall he stays pretty healthy, but he’s got some love handles that he just can’t seem to break up with. According to Dr. Sasaki, that’s a common problem. Once weight is gained and then lost in an area, those fat cells are still there, albeit smaller than before. Traditionally, the surgical method to get rid of that fat meant liposuction, an invasive technique with plenty of risk and plenty of pain. CoolSculpting was a perfect alternative for Troy. He spends an hour in the chair, dealing with a cold application that’s numbing but not painful, and that’s it. Over the next few weeks his body works to eliminate the newly destroyed fat cells.

Seeing the process firsthand was helpful. I learned that CoolSculpting isn’t a miracle cure designed to eradicate the negative effects of a lifetime of bad habits,. Rather, it’s a bit like teeth whitening to get rid of stubborn stains. It helps patients get over that last hurdle. Looking better, feeling better, and without having to go under the knife. Turns out CoolSculpting might be kinda cool after all.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
