Everyone has stubborn fat, but some people just can’t get rid of it, despite eating a healthy diet and staying consistent with their workout routine. Some people don’t mind spending extra time at the gym trying to burn this fat, while others would rather not spend any time in the gym if they can avoid it. At Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN, we have a solution that gets rid of stubborn fat permanently, whether you love or hate the gym, and it’s called Coolsculpting.
Does Coolsculpting Freeze Fat Away for Good?
This revolutionary body contouring treatment removes fat from your most problematic areas and removes it for good. Once the freezing effect works to destroy your fat cells, your body will get rid of them; and once it does, they’ll be gone permanently. However, the total length of your results ultimately is in your hands.
We can use this body contouring method to help destroy the fats cells that exist at the time of your treatment, but we can’t promise that the fat won’t reappear if you end up gaining weight. There are ways to maintain your results, but you need to be motivated to continue living a healthy lifestyle and get enough exercise every day. Most patients love their results so much that how they look is motivation enough to do whatever it takes to make sure those results last forever.
How to Maintain Permanent Results
Maintaining permanent results is easier than you think. If you already live a healthy lifestyle, there’s not much that you’ll have to do to maintain your results. All you have to do is continue living a healthy lifestyle. As long as you eat a healthy diet, stay consistent with your workouts, stay hydrated, and stay within 10 pounds of your ideal weight, you can maintain your Coolsculpting results permanently.
What Is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a body contouring treatment that was developed by Harvard-based scientists who found an effective way to freeze fat cells, destroy them, and kill them, forcing the body to remove them over time. This process is called cryolipolysis and has helped millions of people finally achieve their body goals without having to put in extra time at the gym or try yet another fad diet.
During the treatment, the applicator pads deliver an intense cooling sensation to your treatment area that has been holding onto stubborn fat. Once the fat is cooled, the cryolipolysis process begins and the fat cells are destroyed. Over the next few weeks to months, your body will flush these fat cells from your system and as it does, you’ll see a gradual improvement in the appearance of your problem areas. You’ll lose inches over time and will love your results.
Why Is Stubborn Fat So Difficult to Get Rid Of?
Stubborn fat develops in areas that hold pockets of unwanted fat that seem unresponsive to diet and fitness efforts. Stubborn fat can appear anywhere, but it seems to most often form on the sides in the form of love handles, the inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and the back.
The problem with fat loss is that when you do burn fat through diet and fitness, the fat cells don’t always disappear. Sometimes they shrink, other times they leave an empty cell in their place, which can then be filled by new fat deposits if the body stores fat. If you have a lot of these types of cells in one area of your body, it will most likely become your problem area and will be hard to slim, tone, and contour on your own. That’s where this effective treatment comes in.
Why Does Freezing Fat Work?
Coolsculpting can freeze fat, and it’s so effective because not only does it destroy fat cells, but the process forces the body to get rid of the whole fat cell. It cannot be refilled with new fat, but new fat cells can develop in the area if you don’t maintain your results with diet and exercise.
Fat cells don’t like cold temperatures because they can’t survive. Once the scientists that designed this treatment found a way to freeze fat, they knew that not only was this process based on science, but it was going to be an effective way to slim the body by targeting these fat cells in a new, revolutionary way.
What Areas Does It Treat?
Coolsculpting can remove stubborn fat from anywhere on the body, but there are some common treatment areas that most patients choose to have treated. Stubborn fat likes to form in some of the most common treatment areas, including but not limited to the:
- Inner and outer thighs

This treatment has been refined over the years. The creators of this body contouring treatment have developed different-sized applicators to effectively treat different areas of the body. If you have any questions about whether this treatment is right for your problem area, we can discuss it with you during your initial consultation.
What Happens During the Treatment?
During your treatment, you will make yourself comfortable and your technician will place the treatment pad on the area you’ve chosen to treat. once the applicator is in place, you’ll feel a cold sensation on your skin. After a few minutes, your skin will become numb, and you won’t feel the cold sensation any longer. You will be free to work, relax, watch TV, read, or use your phone during your treatment.
You won’t break a sweat, you won’t have to exercise, and you won’t even have to wear workout clothes unless you want to. During your treatment, you will be able to lie back and relax knowing that you know one step closer to getting rid of that stubborn fat for good and finally achieving all of your body goals.
How Long Do Treatments Take?

How Many Treatments Will I Need to Notice Results?
Most patients are happy with their results after one session. Typically, patients choose to schedule multiple sessions to treat several different areas of the body because they are so happy with the results they experience from their initial treatment. When patients do undergo additional treatments in the same area, it’s usually after they have already experienced their final results and they just want to build on those results.
Is There Any Downtime?

While you won’t notice a significant change in your body weight, you will notice a change in your body fat percentage over time. The best way to measure your results is with a measuring tape, not the scale. This gradual fat loss will result in the loss of inches as opposed to pounds, although you may see that number on the scale drop.
When Will I Notice My Final Results?
Most patients notice that their best and final results appear by 12 weeks post-treatment. Others notice that it takes them a little longer for the body to eliminate the rest of the fat cells, which is why they schedule additional treatments around this time to add to their results.
