Do I Qualify?

Do I Qualify?

There are a lot of questions that people have about CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, and one of the most common ones is whether or not someone can have this procedure done. We want to help clear up as much of that confusion as possible, so today I want to talk to you about whether or not you qualify for this body sculpting procedure. Even the safest and simplest procedures will have people who, for one reason or another, should not have it done. However, we want to make sure that everyone who can have this done knows they are eligible.

For the most part, almost everyone is able to go through the CoolSculpting procedure, so it will be quicker and easier to explain any issues that may prevent someone from having a safe session. One of the biggest reasons to hold off on CoolSculpting is pregnancy. If you are pregnant or had a baby very recently, you will want to wait a little while before coming in. Although there is a large push for people to “bounce back” after having a child, it is important to remember that pregnancy is technically physically traumatic. Not only have you be constantly changing size for the past approximately 40 weeks, but your hormones are extremely unbalanced for a while as well. This is even more true if you are breastfeeding. Give yourself time to recover and to spend with your new baby before scheduling a CoolSculpting session.

Another thing that could exclude you from CoolSculpting is if you have certain cold-related diseases, such as Raynaud’s. As you may have gathered, CoolSculpting uses cold technology to “freeze” fat cells, so anyone who may have an adverse reaction to cold should not go undergo this treatment. Another group of people who may need to pass are those with certain nerve disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis or Fibromyalgia. Always speak to your primary doctor first and see if CoolSculpting is a good idea for you.

Here at the Triangle Region’s only diamond rated CoolSculpting facility, we want to help as many people as possible. Unfortunately, however, we do sometimes need to turn people away from treatment. If you are unsure about your candidacy, call us at 800-8-THIN-YOU or come into our Cary, Raleigh, or Durham locations. Our Certified CoolSculpting technicians can answer any questions you may still have and help you find the thin that is in you!

Exercise and Your Body

Exercise and Your Body

If you don't genuinely enjoy exercising, you aren't alone. While there are some people who find it relaxing and fulfilling in multiple ways, many others simply don't. It most often seems like a chore that needs to be done, similar to doing the dishes or vacuuming your rugs. We do it because we know it needs to be done, not necessarily because we enjoy the task itself. While this isn't the worst reason to do something, it also isn't the best. It can be difficult to force yourself to do something you don't enjoy, so it's always better to find something to make it more fun.

When it comes to exercise, there is so much that you can do that will work. Of course, being active isn't the only goal of exercise. In fact, exercise is most commonly used as a method to lose weight. The problem is that not everyone can slim down as much as they want just by exercise alone. While exercise is a great method of generally slimming down, it may not be the best way to get your arms thinner or make your thighs smaller. Unfortunately, you really can't choose where you lose weight from. So what can you do if you can't seem to get the body you want, even though exercise?

A lack of body sculpting exercise doesn't have to be the end of your journey. We know that life is unpredictable and it can be hard to find time to do much of anything other than work and taking care of your loved ones. It is important, however, to take care of yourself as well. Trying to find more time in the day to dedicate to exercise that may not even help get rid of your problem areas probably isn't at the top of your to-do list. This is where ThinSculpting can help you out.

If you exercise and still can't seem to get the body you have always dreamed of, CoolSculpting may be exactly what you've been looking for. We can help anyone in the Triangle Region with convenient locations in Raleigh, Cary, and Durham. We also have evening and Saturday appointments available to help work with everyone's different schedules. We know how frustrating it can be to want to look a certain way without being able to achieve it, and we are thrilled to be able to help. Give us a call so we can help you find the thin that is in you!

Location, Location, Location

One of the biggest hurdles for anything is how accessible it is. This statement refers to everything from the physical ability of someone getting there to the expenses related to the thing in question. For many people, both factors work in tandem to stop them from being able to go and do something they want or sometimes even need to do. Accessibility is something that needs to be examined with a closer lens. For most people, it is something they find themselves dealing with every day of their lives. Unfortunately, this means that when something prevents them from doing a seemingly simple task, it throws into sharp relief that not everything is set up to accommodate people who may need a little extra assistance. This is something that we want to talk about in regards to ThinSculpting.

We understand that just getting to our offices may be difficult. We have locations in Durham, Cary, and Raleigh for this exact reason, but just having multiple offices won't solve every problem. There are any number of factors that no one can truly have control over. Things such as work and family obligations can prevent someone from coming in and getting the treatment they want. Time is a commodity that, unfortunately, most of us are lacking. Thankfully, the ThinSculpting procedure itself is only about an hour, so you don't need to worry about losing an entire day to get the body you've always dreamed of.

Another commonly prohibitive factor is cost. This is true of really anything. The out of pocket expenses can make any experience difficult for people in just about every walk of life. Just like any other procedure, knowing the costs upfront may dictate what you can and cannot do. This is why we offer interest free payment plans along with other specials that can help make this affordable for everyone. We know that CoolSculpting isn't always on the top of your list when it comes to necessary expenses, but we want to make it as affordable as possible to help you get a body that you can feel good about.

If you are able to come in for a consultation and want to go forward with the procedure, give 800-8THIN-YOU a call. With multiple locations around the Triangle Region, we can help you out by making the process accessible to you. Come in today and let us help you find the thin that is in you!

Changing Body Shape

Changing Body Shape

If you are like most people, your body shape has changed a couple of times over the course of your life. It is perfectly natural that your body changes over time. You change how much you move, your metabolism goes through different speeds, and your diet likely changes too. While it may be frustrating for one reason or another, there's nothing wrong with your body changing over time. You'll find that no matter what you do, you can't always keep the shape you had in your teens and 20s. While there are some things that you can do to keep yourself mostly “in shape”, nothing is going to promise that you stay thin and petite as you age.

One of the most frustrating parts about getting older is when your body shape changes frequently. You may find yourself gaining weight and then losing it again with little rhyme or reason as to why either has happened. While there might be an obvious reason sometimes (such as pregnancy or injury), this isn't always the case. Many people know at least one person who has gone through medical testing to see why they seem to be changing weight, even though they haven't changed much about their lifestyle. It is often frustrating to not know why your body is reacting to things the way it is, and having no control over it can leave you feeling tired, exasperated, and even a bit scared. While we may have a working idea about what can cause changes in the body, there will always be things we don't understand.

Trying to deal with any changes in body shape can be disheartening and often leave you feeling self-conscious. We understand this all too well, and want to do everything we can to help. If you aren't happy with how you look currently, you can always call 800-8THIN-YOU and set up an appointment for your free consultation. Here at CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, we know how frustrating it can be to not look the way you want. Get an appointment with one of our certified CoolSculpting technicians and see what we can do to help you get the body you've always dreamed of. With offices in Durham, Cary, and Raleigh, we are easily accessible to anyone in the Triangle Region. You don't have to continue dealing with the uncertainty of your body shape. All you need to do is call us and we can help you find the thin that is in you!

Work and CoolSculpting

Work and CoolSculpting

One of the biggest problems that we know stop people from coming through our doors is a lack of time. Our lives are so busy from day to day that it can feel impossible to do much of anything that makes you happy, and this is even more true when the activity in question tends to be considered elective. While we know that certain things need to take priority in your life, we also know how important it is for you to be able to do something for yourself. It's not easy going through every day and doing the same thing over and over with no change. That's why you deserve to have someone who will listen to you and help you achieve a goal.

If you know that you are interested in a CoolSculpting session or two so that you can get the body you've always dreamed of, then that's a great first step! Unfortunately, it can be difficult to take the time needed out of your busy schedule. This is especially true if you work a standard day job. One of the great things, however, is that if your work can be done remotely, you don't really need to take time off of work just because you're in our office instead of yours!

Our procedure is so simple and non-invasive that you don't have to worry about being distracted and therefore less productive as you work. This means that although you may need to take some time to travel to and from our office, you won't need to take the full day off. Each session only lasts about an hour most of the time, so you can still get a lot done in that time if you can work off of your phone or a laptop. There are plenty of people who come in and catch up on some work while they reap the benefits of our FDA-Cleared procedure.

If you have to work, but still want to see and feel everything that a CoolSculpting session can do, you can easily do both! When you walk into any of our diamond rated facilities in the Triangle Region, you know that you are going to come out with our process already working its magic. With locations in Cary, Durham, and Raleigh, we are there for you no matter what part you live and work in. Call 800-8THIN-YOU or use our online scheduling tool today and let us help you find the thin that is in you!
