How to Get Rid of Love Handles

Love Handles. We all have them. And odds are, we all struggle with a stubborn fat buildup in this area. Fat in the love handles, also known as flanks, is a notorious problem for almost everyone. When the fat in this area clings to your sides, it can spill over the side of your pants, giving you that dreaded “muffin top” appearance. Thankfully, there are many ways you can try to reduce fat in this area.

What is the Best Exercise to Get Rid of Love Handles?

Certain exercises are excellent for reducing love handles. These exercises include the following:

  • Planks
  • Side planks
  • Russian twists
  • Mountain climbers
  • Abdominal scissors
  • Woodchoppers

While these exercises are excellent for helping tone and tighten the midsection, they are not always enough to reduce fat in the love handles. In order to lose fat, you have to lose fat all over your body. There is no such thing as “spot reducing fat” with exercises.

What Non-Invasive Methods Get Rid of Love Handles?

For many people, exercises and diets do not work at entirely burning away stubborn fat on the love handles. This area is notorious for holding on to fat that tend to resist diet and exercise efforts. Even if a person works out daily and eats clean, they can still struggle with fat buildup on their waistline. However, there is a wonderful non-invasive method for those individuals to get rid of love handles.

CoolSculpting Elite to Get Rid of Love Handles

CoolSculpting Elite is a new fat-freezing treatment capable of reducing fat deposits. This non-invasive treatment uses cooling technology, exposing subcutaneous fat cells below the skin to controlled cooling. The treatment temperature effectively “freezes” the fat cells causing their membrane to rupture. This process triggers cell death, and soon after the session, the body initiates a natural immune response that collects the dead cells and processes them out of the body.

Best of all, CoolSculpting Elite reduces twice the amount of fat cells in less time. This new treatment features many advancements in fat freezing like a new machine, dual applicator capability, more comfortable applicators, long cooling panels, and more.
