Treating Saddlebags with CoolSculpting

Let’s face it, saddlebags are not something we ever want to see on our bodies. This fatty area around the bottom half of the body (buttocks, thighs and hips) can be bothersome to many, especially since it can be hard to get rid of. No matter how much exercise you do or diets you try, slimming down these areas of your body can be tough. However, there are some procedures that can actually slim down those unbearable thighs and hips without even moving a finger or trying the latest diet craze, such as CoolSculpting.

What is CoolSculpting?

Now that you have read that there might be help for saddlebags, you probably want to know what exactly this amazing new technology is. CoolSculpting is a cosmetic dermatology treatment that is applied to the area of concern and gently freezes the fat cells that cause the unwanted bulge. An applicator is applied to the skin then massages and sucks at the area for roughly an hour or so. There is a slight discomfort and the contacted area might feel cold during the procedure. While the results might not be noticed right away, there will be a significant difference within a few weeks and can sometimes take a few more treatments to get the full effect.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

Not only does this kind of treatment give the results you want, it also provides so many other positive benefits too, including the following:

  • No preparation: You don’t have to worry about fasting or preparing the area surgically since you aren’t going under the knife. You can simply come into the office as is and get the treatment done.
  • No downtime: Not only will you not have to worry about preparing for this cosmetic procedure, but you also don’t need to stress about having any downtime since you can go on with the rest of your day after the treatment without any issues.
  • You don’t have to go to the hospital: Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, you won’t need to go to a plastic surgeon to get this one done. Instead, you can head over to your local dermatologist and get the procedure done right in the office.
  • It’s practically pain free: Besides being a little cold on the area the applicator is touching and some slight sucking sensations, there is really no pain during the overall CoolSculpting process. Many people take a book to read or enjoy taking a nap while the treatment is going on.

How it Works on Saddlebags

The unwanted bulge around those hard to rid places like rear, thighs and hips will actually smooth out after one use of CoolSculpting. Those bumps and jiggles that so many of us have been wanting to remove for so long, will finally be smoothed away because this treatment will freeze the fat cells and muscle tissue that are causing all these problems. Once the cells are frozen, they will actually die and the body will actually remove the cells naturally.

There are two different applicators that work specifically on the thighs too so you’re able to get real results. On the outer thighs, your doctor will use an applicator called, CoolSmooth. This type of applicator is used on the outer thighs because it is flat and runs over the skin on that area better than something that might be curved or shaped differently. It is also perfect for fat that can’t be pinched. CoolSculpting usually needs pinchable fat in order to help give results but in this case, this applicator allows the same results as this treatment is known for but without having to worry whether there is enough fat to remove. Many people have some extra bulges that aren’t that big or noticeable to others, but is very noticeable to them and this device helps target just that.

The other applicator used to help rid the body of saddlebags is the one targeted for inner thighs. This applicator is called the CoolFit and is also flat to help target the skin properly, even if it’s not pinchable. It will be able to smooth over the skin perfectly, slimming down the bumps and bulges along the way. This type of applicator also has longer cooling plates in order to help target a larger area.

Is CoolSculpting for You?

If you are interested in trying CoolSculpting (, you might want to learn if this type of cosmetic dermatology treatment is right for you. If you are someone with a few extra pounds or who has areas on the body that won’t slim down no matter how many times you head to the gym or how much healthy, low-fat foods you ingest, this is the right option for you to try. However, if you are someone who is obese and severely overweight, CoolSculpting is not something for you to try. This treatment is only for those who need a little help with smoothing certain areas of the body, but it is not for someone who needs to lose a lot of weight.

If you are someone who has been struggling with annoying saddlebags for some time now and have tried just about anything to remove them from your body, CoolSculpting might be your best bet. Not only will it show you results in a short amount of time, but it will do so without causing any harm to your skin or body. You don’t have to go under the knife to get it done and you don’t have to worry about any downtime after you get this treatment. Instead, you’ll only be concerned with how amazing your skin looks and feels after you try CoolSculpting that you’ll be surprised you haven’t tried this a long time ago.
