Many of us know what it is like: We eat healthy and exercise regularly, but we can’t seem to shed those few extra pounds.
But recent advances in medical aesthetics technology have solved this problem with a new treatment option: CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-surgical fat-reduction treatment with more than 4 million procedures performed worldwide.
Did you know you can learn this and other popular medical aesthetics treatments with training from National Laser Institute?
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn areas of fat.
In the early 2000s, two Harvard University scientists noticed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples on their cheeks. The popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold could target fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue was the concept behind Cryolipolysis, the science CoolSculpting is based on.
This popular medical aesthetic treatment can target stubborn fat in areas, including the abdomen, flanks (love handles) and inner thigh. Some popular “off-label” treatment areas include the upper back, arms and chest (for men).
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
You might be wondering how this treatment works?
During a CoolSculpting appointment, a roll of fat is placed in between two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. This takes up to an hour to treat each targeted body part. After, the treatment area is massaged, which helps break down the fat cells further, producing better results.
In the weeks following a treatment, the body will naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. The results are considered long-term because the fat is gone for good! Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
