Many of us know what it is like: We eat healthily 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 is the world’s #1 non-surgical fat-reduction treatment with more than 6 million procedures performed worldwide.
Some of the leading medical aesthetics schools in the country (including National Laser Institute) incorporate CoolSculpting into their training curriculum for cosmetic lasers.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved, 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 scientists realized 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 is the concept behind Cryolipolysis, which is the science behind a CoolSculpting treatment.
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure contours the body and reduces the number of fat cells by targeting stubborn fat in areas in the submental area, abdomen and flank, thigh, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (banana roll) and upper arms.
During a CoolSculpting appointment, a roll of fat is placed in between two rounded panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. After, the treatment area is massaged, breaking 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.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Weight loss occurs when fat cells become smaller due to adequate calorie intake and burning. As a result, the fat cells shrink in volume, but the number remains the same. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area to help you achieve a more contouring body shape. The results are considered long-term because the treated fat cells are gone.
