What causes stubborn body fat?

Stubborn body fat can be caused by a poor diet and a lack of physical activity, but it can also result from genetics. As we get older, it can become harder and harder to lose stubborn pockets of fat. Even with proper diet and exercise, fat cells can linger in the submental area (under the chin), stomach, back, love handles and thighs. It can be extremely frustrating for people to do all of the right things, like diet and exercise, and still feel negatively about our their bodies. In cases where fat is too stubborn to leave the body, there are effective, non-invasive treatments that can resolve this problem.*

What non-invasive treatments can be used to reduce body fat?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical laser treatment that specifically targets and freezes stubborn fat cells.* You can think of CoolSculpting as laser liposuction, and it is made possible with the use of extreme cold.* The laser essentially freezes fat cells to the point that they are severely damaged.* From that point, the damaged fat cells will naturally leave your body through regular metabolization and the lymphatic drainage system.* With CoolSculpting, we can reduce stubborn body fat without invasive surgery or downtime.* The treatments are quick, too, making it the perfect treatment to schedule during your lunch break!

If you have excess submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin, CoolSculpting or Kybella may be the perfect treatment option for you. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that uses deoxycholic acid to specifically target and break down stubborn fat cells.* There is no surgery or downtime involved, and after a few treatments, you can get the chin and jawline you’ve always wanted!*
