A new year means new goals. For many, that means taking on a new fitness resolution. If you’re looking to both feel and look your best this year, CoolSculpting at our Portland practice may be the boost you need. This nonsurgical body contouring treatment can enhance the results of your diet and exercise efforts without slowing you down, giving you an extra edge as you work on taking your body confidence to a new level.
Let’s take a closer look at how CoolSculpting can be your secret weapon as take on your fitness goals in the new year.
CoolSculpting can spot-treat areas that exercise and diet alone cannot.
Working continuously to trim stubborn pockets of fat can be disheartening. It leaves many people feeling frustrated, discouraged, and unmotivated to achieve their body goals. Finally reducing these bumps or bulges with CoolSculpting will help you overcome persistent “problem areas” where you are predisposed to store fat.
A few of the most popular treatments areas include:
- Double chin

While dedicated diet and exercise can help you slim your figure as a whole, only treatments such as CoolSculpting can target these areas individually. This is often a big relief for those who have been struggling with these areas for years.
CoolSculpting can help you see results faster.
CoolSculpting works by inducing cryolipolysis, a process in which frozen fat cells die and are naturally flushed out of the body. This creates a noticeable fat reduction in the treated areas over the 2 to 4 months following treatment.
As your results take shape, you’ll see your targeted areas visibly slim down, which will likely boost your motivation to stay on track. Many people find that seeing those stubborn bulges shrink renews their drive to keep pushing toward their goals. It gives them the assurance that success is within reach.
You don’t have to take time away from your goals
Unlike surgical body contouring procedures, CoolSculpting doesn’t require downtime. This means you won’t have to miss a single workout—not even on the day of your appointment. You also won’t have to deal with aspects of surgical recovery such as swelling or stitches that may slow you down.
CoolSculpting appointments take about an hour per treatment area and don’t require any prep. Once you’re finished, you’ll be free to return to your normal activities, including exercise, right away. You can even have your procedure done over your lunch break.
The results are long-lasting.
Your CoolSculpting results will last as long as you’re able to maintain a stable weight. If you do get side-tracked on your fitness journey and gain weight, you won’t gain it back as dramatically in your stubborn areas. Those destroyed fat cells will be gone, so you’ll gain weight more evenly across your body.
