Genetics and Body Shape

Genetics and Body Shape

One of the most difficult things to combat in life is what your genetics have pre-determined. It’s true that things like hair color can be changed with dye and you can wear contact lenses to give your eyes a different appearance, but these even these are only cosmetic changes. Nothing can truly alter what your DNA says these things are going to look like. Things like a family history of cancer are topics that you want to let your doctor know about due to your increased likelihood of developing it as a result. Similarly, if members of your family seem to struggle with weight loss, it may not be entirely your fault. In fact, there is a strong correlation between a family history of obesity and a lifelong struggle with weight.

Certain people may have genetic issues that can manifest in an inability to lose weight. It may be due to any number of things, but the fact remains the same at the end of the day. Some people simply cannot seem to lose weight. It is often infuriating when someone you know can do something simple like cut out soda and drop 20 pounds while you stay the same weight no matter what you do to try and lose weight. This often leaves you feeling like you’re doing something wrong, but this may not be the case. You may simply have a harder time losing weight due to your genetics.

If you find yourself struggling to lose weight, you might want to take a look at your genetics. Even if you come from a line of skinny people, there may be a disorder that runs in your family which either causes weight gain or prevents weight loss. While you can’t do much to overcome your genetics, we can there are other options that you can explore if you’re trying to get rid of some of those problem areas.

Here at CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, we want to remind you that this is not a weight loss procedure, but it can help you look great. There are so many variables that need to be taken into account when it comes to body sculpting, be we take pride in being able to help almost anyone. Regardless of what you may be facing genetically, we promise that you will love the way you look after a CoolSculpting session. Give us a call at 800-8THIN-YOU to schedule your appointment with one of our certified CoolSculpting specialists today. We will help you find the thin that is in you!

Exercise vs. CoolSculpting

Exercise vs. CoolSculpting

One of the things that may not get as much attention as it should when we talk about CoolSculpting here at ThinSculpting is just how much exercise can help. Although we have a wonderful procedure that can give you the body you've always dreamed of, nothing is a substitute for staying active and making sure that you are pushing your body in a safe manner. After all, your weight and measurements aren’t the only things that are important. Your health is what really matters.

All too often, we forget that there is a difference between how a body looks and the health of the person in question. BMI, weight, and muscle mass are only small pieces of the puzzle that makes up an individual. A person may seem to have a larger build and yet be all around healthier than someone who is thin and “looks healthy”. It is important to remember that thin does not equal healthy and that just because someone appears to have a larger frame, it does not automatically mean that they are unhappy with how they look. Here at CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, our main goal is to help people feel better about how they look and become confident and comfortable in their own skin.

Having a CoolSculpting procedure done can give someone the incentive to start living a healthier life. After all, if you are working on getting rid of that last little bit of stubborn weight, you have probably been trying for a while to get your body into better shape. It is important to remember, however, that CoolSculpting isn’t an easy fix when it comes to an unhealthy lifestyle. You should always look into working out more or eating healthier foods in order to keep the figure that we can help you achieve through our FDA-Cleared procedure. If you’ve worked this hard already, you don’t want to slip back into bad habits when it comes to your health.

If you have any questions about how you can get the body of your dreams, come in and talk to one of our certified CoolSculpting specialists. We would be thrilled to help you love how you look with ease. Call 800-8THIN-YOU or use our online messaging tool to set up an appointment in Cary, Durham, or Raleigh for your consultation.

After ThinSculpting

After ThinSculpting

While we can go on for hours about how great the actual CoolSculpting treatment is, all that talk doesn’t help you too much once you get home. After all, you will be recovering from a medical procedure. This means you need to prepare for a lot of rest and taking things easy until you feel good enough to go back to work, right? Well, as much as you may like to hear that you should take a few days off, one of the biggest draws to CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting is that the down time is minimal and you hardly need to miss a beat out of your busy life.

After you go through the CoolSculpting process, there are a few things that you need to do. First of all, you need to remember that the results will not be instant. Although that would be wonderful, technology unfortunately hasn't reached that point yet. This means that over the next few weeks, your body will continue to change and it may feel a little odd. After all, you don’t need to do anything different, and yet you are still being rewarded for it. Something we like to tell people to do when this happens is to simply enjoy it. After all, you’re dropping inches of your problem areas just by sitting there and doing your normal work!

While we do like people to take it a little easier for a day or so after their procedure, there is no need to cancel plans or work if you are not someone who deals in manual labor. Due to the fact that our process is non-invasive, you don’t have to worry about many of the things that you would in a traditional weight loss procedure, such as infection or scarring. Every case is unique, so we do want to express how important it is for you to listen to your body. If you believe that something may be wrong, give us or your doctor a call!

All in all, you can expect some pretty incredible results during the recovery process of your CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting experience. With locations in Raleigh, Durham, and Cary, we are even conveniently located for you to drop in when needed. If you are interested, give 800-8THIN-YOU a call today and see how one of our certified CoolSculpting technicians can help you. While the process itself is relatively uneventful, you can expect to find the thin that is in you during recovery!

Back Fat

Back Fat

One of the great things about this time of the year is that you no longer have to worry about how you look in a swim suit. It can be extremely frustrating to work really hard to slim down, only to realize that you still haven't made the progress you were hoping to. There is almost always something that you don't like when you look in the mirror. What's often more embarrassing is when it's something you don't normally get to see for yourself. If you can't see something, you don't always know that you want or need to fix it. This is a large amount of the problem that people have with issues such as how their backs look when bare.

One of the biggest problem areas that people don't think about often is their back. While this isn't as much of an issue in the winter, when the summer comes back around, it can be a major source of embarrassment. This is especially true if you are trying to wear a swimsuit and realize that your back bulges are poking out. Fat deposits may be easy to hide in sweatshirts in the fall and bulky sweaters once the winter comes around again, but modern buildings have heat and you can't hide in them forever. No one should have to be uncomfortable in their own skin, so it's important to look into your options about getting your back to look great.

Back fat is one of the trickiest things to get rid of because there aren't many things that you can do to specifically target it. While arms and legs have a few different exercises that you can do to tone the muscles up, backs are notoriously difficult. While general weight loss can help, it may not do enough to get you the shape you're looking for. This is when we can help.

Here at ThinSculpting, we want you to be happy with the way that you look. That's why our certified CoolSculpting technicians will work with you to develop a plan that will give you the body you've always wanted. With locations in Raleigh, Cary, and Durham, we are always able to help you out if you are near the Triangle Region. We know how important it is that you look and feel great from all angles. Give us a call to schedule your appointment and let us help you find the thin that is in you!

What Is ThinSculpting?

What Is ThinSculpting?

One of the biggest questions that we hear is also one of the questions that we often forget that not everyone knows the answer to! Here at ThinSculpting by CoolSculpting, we are all so excited about our jobs that sometimes we forget that not everyone eats, sleeps, and breathes CoolSculpting. It is a complicated procedure when you get into the science of it, but thankfully there are a few easy ways to explain what happens when you come in to have your fat frozen away.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical, fat-reducing treatment that you can receive. Our goal is to help you when other methods such as diet and exercise don’t seem to work. Those pesky areas like your muffin top, thighs, arms, and even double chin can benefit from a CoolSculpting session. We use controlled cooling to get those fat cells to shrink which, over time, will help you to look like you’ve lost that stubborn weight. The best part is that because our process is non-invasive, there is little to no downtime for any of the incredible results that you will see by the end of your journey with us. Who could ask for anything more?

The results that you can achieve with the help of ThinSculpting are absolutely incredible. By freezing your fat away, we can help you without the side effects of medication and with no risk of infection from surgery. Naturally, if you have a cold sensitivity you should discuss that with one of our certified CoolSculpting technicans before the procedure, but it normally isn’t a problem. It is also virtually painless, so you can take the time to relax. Many people even use the time to take a short nap or catch up on some sleep.

Our facilities are currently located in Cary, Durham, and Raleigh, so you're never too far from one of our offices. We are the only diamond rated facility in the Triangle Region, so it isn’t a surprise that we now have three different locations for you to choose from. If you have some pesky fat areas that you want to get rid of, call 800-8THIN-YOU or schedule an appointment using our online tool and see how much of a difference we can make in your life. You’ll be amazed at the results that you can get, but you have to make the call. Only then can you find the thin that is in you!
