Just listing off all the difficulties that come before, during, and after pregnancies would take me several articles to finish up, so for now, let’s just focus on one problem and its solution. Weight gain and coolsculpting for post-pregnancy fat reduction.
Picking up some extra weight after a pregnancy is the natural course of things. Ever heard the term “eating for two”? Well, it’s more than a joke. Some people do it when they’re not even pregnant, but the point remains that it’s normal for women to pick up some pounds after those nine months of walking around with a baby bump.
And many women also come across the problem of losing this weight after childbirth. Some women prefer not to, all power to them. But for many individuals, postpartum body fat can be really hard to trim off. This is why MiracleFace MedSpa recommends their Coolsculpting treatment in NYC for any woman struggling to get rid of the last remaining body fat.
But why Coolsculpting instead of other treatments? Well, that’s an excellent question.
No Extra Hassle
You probably know of other kinds of fat reduction treatments.
They come in all shapes and sizes, vary from their technique and equipment, but almost all of them have one thing in common: their downtime.
Downtime is the period of maintenance following any kind of treatment when your body is recovering, and the results of the procedure are slowly becoming more and more apparent.
This is a period of time when the side effects caused by the procedure begin to bother you, constantly requiring you to take different medications to mitigate the discomfort and pain, various doctor’s orders, and so on.
If you’re a new parent, the last thing you’ll be interested in is having to take care of stitches or juggling different medications just so that the post-treatment goes by smoothly.
You want a treatment that doesn’t give you any more responsibilities than the ones you have.
Which makes Coolsculpting an ideal candidate for anyone, not just postpartum mothers, who wish to get rid of fat without the extra homework.
The CoolSculpting procedure involves no cuts, gashes, injections, or any other kind of bodily damage that most other fat reduction treatments will have you going through.
Instead, CoolSculpting relies on your fat cells’ secret weakness to cold temperatures.
There are two ways you can destroy a fat cell: necrosis and apoptosis.
Necrosis is the standard way that most fat cells die in terms of damage.
Anytime a cell is physically burned off or pulled out or cut off, this process is called necrosis.
This is how most fat reduction procedures destroy fat cells.
CoolSculpting, however, works on the matter at the cellular level, where it creates the temperature required for a fat cell to kill itself through apoptosis.
During apoptosis, the fat cells structure changes as it is exposed to the cold, and once it has reached its final form when it is no longer attached to the rest of the fat clump, it is picked up by the body and absorbed into it.
The advantage of destroying a fat cell through apoptosis is that you don’t need to get under the skin physically.
You can create the environment, and in the case of CoolSculpting, the temperature needed for fat cells to die out.
The Easy Procedure
Another thing you will never see any new parents doing is sitting for hours inside a clinic waiting to get treated once every month or even every week.
They don’t want to be waiting in lines and by the reception; they want to enjoy their time with their newborn.
And the best part about CoolSculpting is that the procedure is very quick and simple, at least for the client.
Most CoolSculpting treatments last from 40 to 50 minutes, depending on how much of the body you’re treating.
And if you have already set up an appointment before making your way to the clinic, then you don’t have to worry about waiting in a queue to get into the doctor’s office.
And during the procedure, you don’t have to worry about scary cuts or injections, there’s nothing sharp going to be pointed at you.
Instead, you’ll be sitting in the modern and comfortable room with a couple of pipes placed on to the areas that are going to be treated.
These pumps create a pressurized environment and produce enough cold air to stimulate apoptosis within the fat cells.
The temperatures created by the equipment aren’t that cold; around 4 degrees Celsius or 39 to 41 Fahrenheit, which is slightly warmer than the average setting of your fridge.
At first, it’ll naturally seem rather cold, which may be pleasant if you go on a scorching summer day, but for people with sensitive skin, it may not be as much of a walk in the park.
Luckily, our skin has a way of adapting to pain, and within a couple of minutes, it’ll go numb, and you will no longer feel the cold.
So, while it’s not the most comfortable situation to be in, it’s still nowhere near as painful as other, more traditional fat reduction treatments tend to be.
And after you’re finished, you get to march back home, with little to no requirements from the doctors, other than to avoid putting too much pressure on the treated area and just taking the simplest measures to care for your skin, like moisturizing and cleaning it.
Very basic stuff, but within the next few months, you’ll notice how your body naturally tones itself and the areas with all that fat buildup slowly sink to their natural shape.
