Get Slim and Toned Legs: Lose Thigh Fat, Buttock Fat and Knee Fat
Thigh and leg fat can be very persistent as the amount of localized fat in the legs is often caused by a genetic predisposition. As the legs do not have deep compartments where excess fat can be stored, it becomes apparent on appearance when fat accumulates on the legs. Diet and exercise may help to reduce the amount of fat on the legs. However, people with a predisposition may find it harder to lose this excess fat.
You Can’t Target Specific Areas for Fat Loss by Exercise & Dieting
When we gain weight, our body has a tendency to accumulate fats in certain areas of our body. For men, they tend to accumulate in the belly area while for women, they tend to accumulate in the buttocks and thigh area.
When we lose weight however, fats do not burn where we want them to. Spot reduction fat loss through dieting and exercising is not effective. Hence, if fatty acids loves to cling on to those areas of your body, even after you lost weight, you may still end up with large buttocks and thighs.
The Solution to Spot Reduction for Fat Loss
With the medical advances that we have available today, you can now opt for a non-surgical treatment to spot-reduce fat on different parts of your legs. Medical treatments such as fat freezing (Cryolipolysis), Laser Thermolysis (WarmSculpting), microwave therapy, or ultrasound therapy can reduce fat in specific, targeted areas such as the inner, outer, front, and back thighs.
CoolSculpting is the chosen Cryolipolysis treatment at Ensoul Body Medical Clinic. It is an FDA-approved fat freezing treatment aimed to target the fat cells under extremely low temperatures, killing the falls cells through crystallization. The fat cells are then eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system.
For CoolSculpting, the types of applicators may vary based on your specific goals for your body. The inner thighs are usually treated with the CoolAdvantage or CoolFit applicator. As for areas where fat might be difficult to pinch, such as the outer thighs, the CoolSmooth Pro applicator might be used for the treatment.

Under the extremely cold temperatures induced by CoolSculpting, or high concentrated heat generated by the applicators for SculpSure, the targeted cells go through a process called apoptosis – which means cell death. Thereafter, the body’s natural waste disposal system then takes over and flush the fat cells out steadily over time through the intestines via the body’s lymphatic system. Over the course of three months following the procedure, the destroyed fat cells are completely removed from the body.
