New research shows that all movement, no matter how seemingly insignificant, can improve your long-term health. According to a study from the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences in Stockholm, the movement or exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous to count—even a short walk will help.
And what better time to move more? With summer’s longer days and warmer weather, it’s easy to take a stroll in the evening or just get outside to play with the kids. At Shine MD, we applaud every effort you make to boost your health and perhaps lose a few pounds in the process.
But if your evening walks aren’t shifting those extra inches around your belly or on your thighs, we recommend FDA-cleared CoolSculpting®, the world’s most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment. CoolSculpting is ideal for people who are near their ideal weight but would like to slim certain trouble spots of fat that are resistant to exercise and healthy eating. This no-downtime treatment helps to slim almost any area of the body, including the chin, back (bra rolls), waist, abdomen, thighs, upper arms and more.
Here’s how CoolSculpting works in a nutshell:
Everyone has a certain amount of fat cells in their body. When we gain weight, these fat cells increase in size. Using a process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in a targeted area by freezing them. Once your cells die, your body takes over, flushing them out in your urine over the course of several weeks to months.
During your treatment, you will lie back and relax while one of Shine MD’s experts applies CoolSculpting’s cooling panels to your targeted areas. As the applicator adheres to the area, you’ll notice a sucking sensation. Next, you’ll feel the cooling begin. As it works, the area will become numb. You can read, look at emails or close your eyes and dream of the new bathing suit you’re going to buy until your treatment is complete, anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. After your treatment, you can return to your normal routine right away. There’s no downtime.
