It’s been over a decade since the body positivity movement began to emerge. Yet despite its focus on challenging unrealistic body standards, many of us are still terrified to put on a swimsuit in public. Whether we feel self-conscious about our cellulite or the 20+ pounds we gained during quarantine, bathing suit anxiety is real. So in this post, we’re talking about getting swimsuit-ready now with CoolSculpting and Laser Hair Removal.
The Trifecta of Beach Body Treatments
What makes these three treatments so ideal for getting ready for swimsuit weather? They focus on some of the issues that keep us covered up in the first place. CoolSculpting can target multiple concerns—from abdominal fat to jiggly thighs. And QWO has been cleared by the FDA to treat cellulite on the buttocks. Lastly, laser hair removal can deliver smooth, silky, touchable skin and get rid of unwanted hair once and for all. Let’s discuss each of these treatments as they relate to getting ready to don your favorite swimwear.
CoolSculpting for the Ultimate Beach Body
CoolSculpting can be your secret weapon against stubborn fat, allowing you to wear the bathing suit you really want to wear instead of settling for something that “covers you up.” Many of us diet and exercise religiously but still can’t get rid of lingering pockets of fat, no matter what we do. Coolsculpting can help tone and define those areas, giving you the confidence you need to hit the beach with no regrets. Wondering what areas of the body can be CoolSculpted?
Which Areas of the Body Can You CoolSculpt?
Getting ready to wear your favorite swimsuit with confidence is easy since CoolSculpting has been FDA-cleared for removing stubborn fat on these areas:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Flanks (muffin top, love handles, spare tire)
- Back fat
- Bra fat
- Upper arms
- Banana roll (fat underneath the buttocks)
CoolSculpting can even treat a double chin or the area just below your jawline for a toned, lifted, younger-looking you.
Is CoolSculpting an Invasive Procedure?
The best thing about CoolSculpting is that it’s completely noninvasive. The procedure is done with a ground-breaking device that harnesses the power of a fat-freezing technology called cryolipolysis. There are no knives. Instead, a technician applies the CoolSculpting device to the outside of your body.
Unlike liposuction, which can leave a scar and take months to heal, there is no scarring with coolsculpting. While you may have some swelling and redness for a week or so after the treatment, there is no lasting damage.
Our team at La Belle Vie Medical Care and Aesthetics in Draper will work with you to develop a personalized plan so you can sculpt and tone your trouble spots. Depending on your goals, you may need one or several appointments to get your desired results.
Hair-Free™ Laser Hair Removal
The final treatment in our trio of procedures for your best beach body is laser hair removal.
If you’ve had it with waxing, shaving, and depilatories, you’re going to absolutely love laser hair removal. At La Belle Vie in Draper, we use a patented process called Hair-Free™, a laser hair removal treatment that uses infrared diode laser energy to heat the hair follicles from deep within the skin. Combined with a DualChill™ treatment tip, it keeps your skin cool, so the treatment is not painful.
The best part about our laser hair removal is that it offers permanent results! No more stubble, razor bumps, and wasted time trying to remove hair every other day. Plus, it works for everyone, no matter what your skin or hair type.
Laser hair removal can treat hair on your bikini area, underarms, and legs. But it can also be used just about anywhere else—neck, back, chin, upper lip, stomach, or wherever you want to de-fuzz.
If you want to hit the beach or pool this year without embarrassment and apprehension, you owe it to yourself to try out this fantastic trio. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of disrobing with self-assurance and poise, and CoolSculpting and laser hair removal can give you more confidence than you’ve ever had before.
