In my last post I introduced you to CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ – the non-invasive way to reduce fat in problem areas. Yesterday I had the opportunity to go for a consultation to see just what this procedure was all about.
I arrived at the Dr. Kinsley’s office (which felt more like a spa, to be honest) and was given a robe and ushered into a comfortable room with a full length mirror. Before I knew it, I was laughing and talking about my daughter and my life while standing in my bra and panties in front of the mirror, discussing parts of my body that I was not too…ahem…fond of. I’m relatively modest, but Dr. Kinsley’s staff put me at ease immediately.
They more fully explained the process to me – about how the machine freezes the area to 12 degrees below zero, literally reducing and eliminating the fat cells in that area. Cool fact about fat cells? Once they are gone, they don’t come back! The size of your already-existing fat cells can increase, but the ones you are targeting are gone and gone for a lifetime. Of course, I had already done a fair amount of research – like reading this Marie Claire article about it, and watching a video of the procedure being done on Dr. Oz.
Where can I sign up?
I am somewhat shy, so I’ll refrain from telling you ALL of the places that I qualify for CoolSculpting, but let’s just say that it’s enough to make me feel like I will look like a new woman. I’ve scheduled my appointment to try it out for next week, so I’ll definitely update you to let you know how it goes. All of the women in Dr. Kinsley’s office have tried CoolSculpting and rave about it – including Dr. Kinsley herself – so I feel much more at ease going into it. Basically I’ll be sitting for an hour for each problem “area” and hanging out, reading my kindle or watching a movie while the machine works it’s magic. It must be pretty popular, because it was difficult to find a time in the near future when I could get an appointment – the office manager told me they have a steady stream of clients who are eager to try CoolSculpting.
So now I’m excited. I am constantly aware of my weight and my body, but I struggle to get the look that I really want because of those pesky areas that I can’t stand. Now I feel like when I get married sometime this year or next, I will have the sexy physique that I’ve always dreamed of but really thought was unattainable. You can bet I won’t be wedding dress shopping until AFTER my treatment!
