Now Offering CoolSculpting: The Fat-Freezing Fat Reduction Procedure
Currently struggling to get rid of that last bit of stubborn fat? Exercise and diet no longer doing the trick? CoolSculpting may be the answer for you!
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure utilizing a medical device to deliver controlled cooling to targeted areas to reduce the fat layer. It’s FDA-cleared to treat stubborn fat around one’s abdomen, thighs, flank / side, chin, upper arms, and back fat. Based on the science of Cryolipolysis, the procedure freezes fat cells without causing damage to the surrounding tissue and skin. The method is quick and easy, requiring no downtime afterwards–unlike many other fat reduction methods.
How Does CoolSculpting Reduce Fat?
USING COOLING TO REDUCE OR LOSE FAT CELLS
Although “weight loss” and “fat reduction” are commonly used as synonymous, weight loss does not necessarily correlate to fat reduction or loss. The number on the scale can go up without gaining fat, since muscle weighs more than fat.
The number on the scale can go down without losing or reducing fat, like when losing water weight. While you may lose weight with CoolSculpting, at its core, it is a fat reduction treatment.
When we consume fat and it is not turned into energy, the excess fat is stored in existing fat cells (which are usually determined by the later teen years). These cells grow larger the more fat we consume that isn’t used up through energy. With diet and exercise, these fat cells shrink.
Harvard scientists discovered that fat freezes at a higher temperature than liquid, later leading to Cryolipolysis and the CoolSculpting System. This allows water-based tissues like skin and muscle to withstand the cold while it kills fat cells.
During a session, the CoolSculpting medical device is applied to the fatty area and cools it by drawing heat out of the area. By doing so, the fat cells collapse or die under the cold, reducing fat cells by 25 – 30% within four months.
After the fat cells die, other cells consume the dead cells, naturally processing and eliminating them from the body. Unlike some other treatments, CoolSculpting kills fat cells, not just shrinking them. So, instead of fat cells simply shrinking and shifting around inside the body, the fat really is gone for good.
