Love handle is one of the things people often find themselves battling with as they age as it can disfigure a perfect shape.

Love handles also known as muffin tops and stubborn fatty deposits that are found around the waist. Physiologically, the waist has more fat cells than other regions in the body, which is why 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 builds up around the waist, coming out as an uncomfortable buildup of fat in the waist and making the stomach appear bulgy in clothes.

There are several factors responsible for love handles and the difficulty in expunging it – diet remains a huge factor. Excessive ingestion of sugar, fatty food and starch also leads to fat buildup around the waist.

Lack of sleep can also affect metabolism, causing a reduction in metabolism rate hence, leading to weight gain. Stress is also 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.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also known as freezing liposuction involves the use of a non-surgical liposuction to treat love handles. In cool sculpting, cooling and sucking treatment are used to kill fat cells naturally and permanently. It can serve as an alternative for reducing and removing belly fat, inner and outer thigh fat as well as body sculpting. Cool sculpting can be used on small areas of the body such as underneath the buttocks and on the back.

It involves the use of laser energy to heat fat cells after which a suction device is used to remove them immediately.
