 Love handles, also known as muffin tops, and stubborn fatty deposits found around the waist. Physiologically, the waist has more fat cells than other regions in the body, so it stores fat easily. Love handles usually occur when you eat more calories than you burn; the excess calories are stored in the fat cells in the body and build up around the waist, coming out as an uncomfortable buildup of fat in the waist and making the stomach appear bulgy in clothes.

Several factors are responsible for love handles, and the difficulty in deleting them – diet remains a huge factor. Excessive ingestion of sugar, fatty food, and starch leads to fat buildup around the waist.

Lack of sleep can also affect metabolism, causing a reduction in metabolism leading to weight gain. Stress is another factor that causes love handles when the body is overworked, the body releases cortisol, which allows the body to store up fat rather than burn it.

Because love handles can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, people with this condition search for several means to remove them. While exercising could help get rid of love handles, it might not necessarily work because exercising to treat love handle takes consistency and persistence and might not give you the quick result you desire.

There are other ways to get faster results, love handle treatment is available using several methods with an assured result, and these include:

COOLSCULPTING for Love handles

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also known as freezing liposuction, involves using non-surgical liposuction to treat love handles. Cool sculpting, cooling, and sucking treatments kill fat cells naturally. It can serve as an alternative for reducing and removing belly fat, inner and outer thigh fat, and body sculpting. Cool sculpting can be used on small body areas underneath the buttocks and the back.


How effective is CoolSculpting for love handles?

Cool sculpting can cause the removal of approximately 20% of total fat in the treated area; however, the effectiveness of cool sculpting varies from one person to another. Individuals within 30 pounds of their ideal weight but have excess fat in specific areas tend to get the best result when they treat their love handle.


Is CoolSculpting the same as laser liposuction?

CoolSculpting is different from laser liposuction; the only similarity they share is that they both reduce and remove excess fat in the body.

However, with CoolSculpting, the approach to fat removal is completely non-invasive. It uses a cooling form of liposuction to remove fat from unwanted areas. It works by typically freezing away fat below the skin with a vacuum to suck away fat and cool it to eliminate the fat cells. Your body naturally excretes the dead fat cells between 4 to 12 weeks. Laser liposuction, on the other hand, is different from this procedure. It involves using laser energy to heat fat cells, after which a suction device is used to remove them immediately.


Does CoolSculpting help in weight loss?

Although CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss tool, it helps to form a good body shape by helping to sculpt parts of their body that is difficult to shape with diet or exercise. CoolSculpting works significantly for removing fat from the skin. Weight loss requires the loss of visceral fat, which CoolSculpting treatment does not entail.

How much fat can CoolSculpting help to remove?

The treatment will help to lose 20% of the treated fat.


Is CoolSculpting for love handles permanent?

CoolSculpting can last for about five years; exercise and a good diet will help maintain the best result and help the treatment last longer.

How does VelaShape work?

VelaShape works with intense infrared rays, which reduce fats just below the surface of the skin. It uses the suction effect and radio frequency to enable effective fat removal.

Through these procedures, the fat and tissues below the skin get melted, and the unwanted cells are broken up and flushed out of the body, giving you smooth and well-toned skin.

Does the treatment require multiple procedures?

It is highly recommended to repeat the VelaShape procedure between 4 to 6 times, after which the patient can revisit the clinic for touch-ups.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is an innovative non-invasive method of losing extra body fat quickly and efficiently. It involves using targeted laser energy to heat fat cells under the skin without causing harm to the skin surface.

It raises the temperature of the fat cells to damages their structural integrity. Within a few weeks, the body’s lymphatic system helps process and eliminate fats from the body permanently. With this treatment, the body is sculpted and contoured to satisfy the patient’s needs.

SculpSure is not for weight loss, and it only targets areas where exercise and diet have little effect.

How many treatments do patients require?

Most patients require only one treatment to get the effect they want. However, people who desire more treatments to get a better result can also get additional treatment.

Is SculpSure painful?

The pain level felt during SculpSure varies because the human body differs; while most patients only experience mild pain or discomfort, a few express that they feel more pain. This is why the intensity of the treatment can be reduced to an extent to reduce the painful effect. The treatment does not require an incision, so there will be no scars.

How soon can the result become visible?

Patients see results as early as six weeks after treatment, and an optimal result can be achieved at 12 weeks after treatment as the body will gradually eliminate unwanted fat.

With SculpSure, treated body fats are destroyed permanently and are treated never to regenerate.
