Contrary to popular belief, weight loss and fat reduction do not mean the same thing. This is important because there are a growing number of people who are seeking treatments for both weight loss and fat reduction. Understanding the difference between the two is critical in determining what type of treatment is right for you and would best help accomplish your goals.

Weight Loss

Weight loss is accomplished through diet, exercise, or in extreme cases surgery. When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller in size, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again. When the size of our fat cells hits their capacity and cannot grow any larger, then we start forming new fat cells.

Fat Reduction

With fat reduction treatments such as CoolSculpting, the actual number of fat cells in the treated area is reduced. So, fat cells that are no longer there can’t get bigger. That’s double the benefit!

And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you’ll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.
