Coolsculpting — is it for the fit or the fat?

Does it really work? Two women tell their story

Sponsored by Longevity Medical Aesthetics | Impress Branded Content

Weight loss! Body Sculpting! Heat! Cold! Pills! Potions…Overwhelming! Most shrink your wallet, not your waistline. So what actually works? For real, safe results here’s what you need to look for:

• Physician-operated clinic (not a just a doctor visiting)

• FDA-approved technology

• Good reviews (technology and doctor)

• Well-researched technology

Longevity Medical Aesthetics is owned and operated by full-time physician Dr. Andy Biro. He chose Coolsculpting by Zeltiq because it met all the requirements. FDA approved since 2008, Coolsculpting has permanently destroyed fat cells on millions of clients.

We spoke with two very different women from Longevity Medical Aesthetics about their personal experience with Coolsculpting. Natalie, a self-proclaimed fitness fanatic, is a 35-year-old Parksville woman who turned to Coolsculpting to help her get rid of stubborn fat that was not responding to diet and exercise.

“I work out and eat clean, yet I have a few bulges that won’t budge! I decided to try Coolsculpting on my tummy first. Within eight weeks I was flat — I mean really flat! I was thrilled. I had my flanks treated and the results have been excellent. For me, it was the best solution.”

But does Coolsculpting work on someone who is not fit and has lots of extra fat?

We asked Marie, a sumptuous 60ish Longevity client about her Coolsculpting experience.

“At this point in my life I want to look good with my clothes on,” says Marie. “I came to Longevity to find out what was possible. My muffin top was my issue. The technicians at Longevity were realistic and explained that for me it would be a process. I could decide how flat I wanted to be. I needed de-bulking which still makes me laugh. In the end, I chose to do three sessions. I was so happy I continued with Coolsculpting and I treated my thighs. A year has gone by and I still love the results. I would recommend this treatment to anyone wanting to get rid of fat for good!”

We asked Dr. Andy Biro why he chose Coolsculpting.

“I am committed to providing proven technologies that produce measurable results,” he said. “The basis of the technology was initially discovered at Harvard University. Cryolipolysis, the science behind Coolsculpting, is an effective method of permanently destroying targeted fat cells by freezing them.”

The technicians at Longevity are excited about the new hand piece that provides 3D cooling at colder temperatures with no discomfort. They can now provide the treatment in only 35 minutes. The techs are welcoming and warm.

I’ll leave the final word with these enthusiastic ladies:

“Whether you want to flatten your tummy and flanks, ditch your double chin or smooth your thighs you can wave goodbye to unwanted fat without your arms flapping in the wind! The reality is fit or fat, young or old, male or female. Coolsculpting is a fantastic method of destroying unwanted fat. We love it!”
