Fat Freezing with CoolSculpting
Does fat freezing seem as if it may be too good to be true? We understand your concerns, but we want to assure you that CoolSculpting® is a safe, trustworthy treatment that offers real results. In fact, it may be able to help you achieve the figure that you have longed for without the need for surgery or anesthesia.
CoolSculpting® is the brand name for a research-based process known as cryolipolysis. This is not a new discovery but rather one that was made several decades ago when Harvard researchers discovered that fat cells could be killed by very cold temperatures along with light suction. They first saw this happen with young children who sucked frozen popsicles day after day.
By taking this same information, cryolipolysis has been applied to the removal of unwanted fat cells from other areas of the body. Today’s procedure begins by attaching the CoolSculpting® device to your skin with light suction. Then, it begins cooling your tissues. Within 5 to 10 minutes, your skin is numb, and you will be able to relax throughout the rest of your appointment. These cold temperatures target only your fat cells without harming your surrounding tissues.
CoolSculpting® is a safe procedure that has been FDA-approved for years. CoolSculpting® requires little to no downtime, and you should see results fairly quickly. Freezing away your fat with CoolSculpting® is the smart choice if you are a busy adult who does not want to take the time for a surgical procedure. Once the fat cells are frozen, they crystallize and die. Your body then removes them permanently. As long as you take care of yourself by eating a balanced diet and by burning off calories through exercise, your weight will stay the same and your remaining fat cells will not get bigger.
Keep in mind that CoolSculpting® is not a method for getting rid of extra pounds. Rather, it is a way for you to sculpt away the stubborn fat that seems like it will never leave, revealing the beautiful curves or toned muscles beneath.
