Keeping Cool This Summer with CoolSculpting
It’s not often that popsicles lead to weight loss, but that is exactly what happened when researchers at Harvard University noticed that children who enjoyed these icy treats formed deeper dimples in their cheeks. More than just a cute observation, the realization that the popsicles were literally freezing away fat cells became the groundwork for an innovative and non-invasive method of weight reduction.
CoolSculpting is a surprisingly simple treatment which targets the most stubborn pockets of fat—those places which resist even the most ardent diet and exercise.
We have now come to learn that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperature than any other cells in the body. The far-reaching implications of this discovery can make a significant difference in meeting this year’s summer goals, so before you go out to enjoy the warmth of the California sun, consider freezing off that excess winter weight.
How It Works
Without harm to the surrounding area, controlled cooling will be applied at a temperature of 23 to 41°F.
After this gentle application, the crystalized fat cells will soon die and your body will naturally dispose of the unwanted subcutaneous tissue. During the session, patients are likely to feel little more than a few minutes of tingling cold. The hour of treatment can be used to read, relax or even catch up on some sleep over lunchbreak.
The treatment is the first of its kind and as the only FDA-cleared cooling technology for fat reduction, it is an excellent nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. Not only is it a gentler and less-invasive procedure, but it has long-term results with little to no recovery time. As opposed to the complications often involved in post-surgery, the patient can expect nothing more than temporary numbness or minor bruising from the treatment. It is a safe option for several areas of the body, such as the abdomen, the thighs, and the so familiar, yet unwanted love handles.
Relax with Rewarding Results
Although nothing can substitute a balanced diet and adequate exercise, CoolSculpting provides that summer boost to get you on your way and you won’t have to wait long for results. Patients can see the difference in as early as three weeks, and your body will continue to dispose of fat cells for up to four to six months after the initial treatment. Consider CoolSculpting a relaxing reward for the discipline and determination you use to shape a robust lifestyle each and every day.
