The official start of summer has come, which means for many of us that the countdown to get that perfect beach body is on. In addition to maintaining a successful workout program and healthy eating habits, having some subtle cosmetic “work” done can give anyone who is self-conscious about some physical aspect or another an extra boost of confidence. To that end, Germain Dermatology offers personalized options for women and men interested in CoolSculpting® in Charleston, SC.

The April to June period is an ideal time to get your body ready for bathing suits and parties, while perhaps shedding any extra pounds gained over the holidays. The weather is still cool enough to conceal any problem areas with heavier clothing.

Unfortunately, even with overall weight loss, it isn’t always easy to burn fat from more resistant areas (for example, a double chin). In our childhood and teenage years, we all develop a fairly set number of fat cells in certain body areas. The pattern of how fat tends to be distributed and stored is unique to each of us. That means, come summer, a bulge or two may remain despite months of effort put into slimming down.

Whether your goal is to create a sleeker silhouette or more balanced proportions, FDA-approved CoolSculpting® is one of the most effective, non-surgical ways of contouring your body into the shape you’ve wanted. The treatment can get rid of pesky, unwanted pockets of fat, whether below the chin, on the flanks, or in the form of a spare tire, muffin top, or love handles.

During the treatment session, adipose tissue is essentially frozen, irreparably damaged, and marked for removal from the body. The CoolSculpting® device zeroes in on fat in the targeted area, precisely cooling fat cells to a temperature they are unable to survive in while leaving surrounding skin and tissues unaffected. Up to 25 percent of fat cells in a specific area may be eliminated over time. Even better, there is little to no pain or down time required.

Summer has started, but it’s not too late to start shaping your body. After all, with proper care, the results will be around by the time next swimsuit season starts.
