  • CoolSculpting FAQs

    CoolScuplting is a revolutionary body contouring treatment developed by Harvard scientists that freezes and naturally eliminates fat from your body with ease. The procedure requires no needles, no special diets, and best of all, no down time. That means you’ll be able to carry on your daily routine and return to the gym the very same day of your treatment.

    If you’re interested in learning more about how you can get rid of your unwanted fat with less of a hassle, read on to see some of our frequently asked questions:

    How do I know if CoolSculpting is right for me?
    Answer:
    The best CoolSculpting candidates will have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d rather do without. However, CoolScultping is not a solution for people who are obese, but rather a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

    How long will the procedure take?
    Answer:
    Generally speaking each session takes about an hour, but the actual session length can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated. The number of sessions will be dependent on your body and your desired results.

    Will I be required to take any supplements following my treatments?
    Answer:
    While there are no required supplements, pills or diets after a treatment is completed, you may feel more motivated to stay healthy and in shape.

    How long will the results last?
    Answer:
    Forever! Once the fat cells are frozen the body will naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. *Note that while these particular cells are permanently eliminated, unhealthy habits can cause your body to form new ones.

    Are there any side effects I should be aware of?
    Answer:
    During the procedure, you may experience deep pulling, tugging, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, the side effects include, redness, swelling, bruising, temporary numbness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. You should not have the procedure is you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.

    When can I expect to see results?
    Answer:
    You can potentially start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, but the most dramatic results will appear after 2 months. In addition, your body will flush out fat cells and continue to do so for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

  • 5 Outdoor Fitness Ideas for Labor Day Weekend

    It’s Labor Day Weekend, and the beach days and barbecue invites are piling up by the minute! While you have a bit of free time, why not work on your fitness? No, we’re not talking about following the same old “hit the gym” routine. Here are five great activities that you can do to take your workout outdoors this weekend:

    1. Try paddleboarding. Channel your core and work on your balance with a stand-up paddleboard. This fun outdoor activity can help you strengthen your muscles and workout your entire body, all while enjoying a tranquil, scenic water view.

    2. Go hiking. Head out to your favorite trail spot and challenge your mind and body to an hour long hike. You’ll be burning more than 350 calories, toning your muscles and enjoying the fresh air.

    3. Ride a bike. Did you know a good old fashioned bike ride can burn up to 500 calories per hour? Plus it’s environmentally friendly, works out your entire body at once and allows you to enjoy some peaceful sightseeing at your own pace.

    4. Play beach volleyball. If you’re off to the beach this Labor Day weekend, like so many others we know, get a volleyball game started and burn up to 585 calories for every 45 minutes you play. That way, you can stay fit while having fun and working on your tan!

    5. Take a swim. Swimming is one of the best activities to do when it comes to burning up a large amount of calories in a short time and getting a total body workout, plus it’s fun! Whether you’re at the beach or hanging out poolside this weekend, get in the water and go for a swim.
