Freezing the Fat Away
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved body contouring treatment. It's Noninvasive and involves no surgery, which means no down time. It assists in removing stubborn, exercise-resistant body fat such as love handles, double chins, and unwanted bulge. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, which are then absorbed and expelled naturally from the body with no downtime.
The Science of CoolSculpting
During the CoolSculpting process, the fat cells are frozen. Once frozen, the fat cells begin to die off and collapse, which are consumed by healthy fat cells. These fat cells are then naturally discarded through your body's cleansing process.
When you are in your teenage years your body develops a fixed number of fat cells that fluctuate in size when gaining and losing weight. CoolSculpting reduces that number approximately 25%. Because the body naturally eliminates the dead cells, there is no fat cell migration to other areas. Unlike other body contouring treatments, other areas of the body are not affected by the treatment.
What to Expect
Depending on your body, you can see results as soon as 3 weeks. 2 months is where most see the larger results. For up to 4 to 6 months your body will continue to flush out dead cells.
This procedure is not for obesity or extreme fat loss. CoolSculpting assists in getting rid of those stubborn areas that exercise and diet just don't seem to work on. There are no supplements or diet and exercise programs to follow after the procedure.
There are mild side effects during and after the procedure. The after effects are mild and are usually resolved within a few days to a week. CoolSculpting is not suggested for sufferers of cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
