Still holding on to those love handles?

Sometimes, despite all the dieting and exercise we can master, the extra fat in certain areas of the body simply refuses to go away. The fat around the middle for example, especially after giving birth, well … the body holds on to this  last reserve of fat just in case, as a last resource of nutrients.

Try exercise, yoga, diets, drink gallons of water with lemon juice and ginger, do twists and turns, saunas, body wraps, massages, caffeine creams and poultices, scrubs, dry brushing, you name it, I tried it and although these intense efforts worked wonders on my health and general appearance, those stubborn love handles are hanging on in there.

I wish there was something out there, some magical way to simply sculpt the fat away so I can finally wear a bikini without ever feeling so self conscious. Well … hold on a minute:

There is something out there!  

I just came across Clarkston Dermatology, an advanced treatment facility in Clarkston Michigan, offering Dermatological Treatments for skin problems such as eczema, rashes, skin cancer, rosacea and many, many others. On the front page they are featuring a non-surgical way to remove those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat, aka muffin tops or love handles. This innovative and revolutionary technology is called CoolSculpting. It appears that during this fat sculpting treatment, which doesn’t use any needles or surgery, the patient can simply relax or read while the professional places a device on the problem area of the body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels which will start working their cooling magic for about an hour. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on the patient’s needs, the treatment is over and he/she can return to normal activities with only minor discomfort such as  tingling or numbness to put up with for little while. After this, all that is required is a little bit of patience. The desired changes in the treated areas start appearing three weeks after the treatment. During these weeks following the treatment, the body is slowly flushing fat cells and will continue to do so for up to four to six months after treatment.


Well, the Clarkston Dermatology clinic appears to be professional and trustworthy, the coolsculpting testimonials are promising and having unsuccessfully tried everything else to get rid of that last bit of fat, I think it’s worth a try. Don’t you?
