Thread: Supplementing HCG with CoolSculpt / Emsculpt?

  1. #1

    Supplementing HCG with CoolSculpt / Emsculpt?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a few rounds of HCG ahead (3-4 rounds, in the middle of the second). From past expereince, I know even at my target weight, my body will hold weight in certain areas (hello upper hips, thighs). These days, we have technologies like CoolSculpt or Emsculpt (many others I am sure) that can help to address this.

    Was wondering if anyone had tried these? Would it be worth doing between rounds? I was thinking of doing between rounds 3 and 4.

    FYI for those who don't know: Coolsculpt works by freezing and thereby killing fat cells, which the body then dispells it. It only removes subcutaneous fat, not visceral.

    Would be curious for your thoughts!

    I've heard there can be some serious side effects from the cool sculpting technique. I encourage you to make an informed risk assessment before you try it.

    Have you looked into infra-red light therapy? There have been some reports of success at reducing subcutaneous fat with that method, and it also has a lot of other good benefits (skin renewal, better sleep, improved eyesight, wound healing and recovery to name a few) And it seems to be completely safe. You can get a good home system for lots less than you will pay for cool sculpting.

    I would not. As Leez notes, there are reports of not great results, which are treated with liposuction. Yuck.

    You could do a re-shaping round once you hit goal weight. I found I lost my problem area weight in the final round, the one that got me to goal weight. Although my weight is now a bit above goal, the problem fat deposits have not returned.
