COOLSCULPTING, an innovative way to contour the body by freezing unwanted fat away
CoolSculpting is a medically proven non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that successfully removes stubborn areas of body fat by freezing the fat cells. A safe, tried and trusted, alternative to liposuction it is the world’s No.1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment.
The procedure employs cold to reduce fat cells thereby enhancing the shape of the body. It is based on work originally done by Dr. Rox Anderson’s group at Wellman Labs, Harvard Medical School. Utilizing the process technically known as apoptosis (selective fat cell destruction), CoolSculpting has the ability to target smaller areas of fat such as the abdomen, love handles, muffin top, inner and outer thighs, back of bra fat, above and below the derriere, knees, upper arms, double chin and more—often the areas that refuse to budge with weight loss, no matter how “clean” the diet or how much exercise is being done.
By freezing areas of fat beneath the skin (cryoprotective barriers actually prevent the skin itself from freezing), apoptosis is induced and fat cells, once destroyed, are eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. Best of all, CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia, no incisions, no injections and no downtime!
CoolSculpting is one of several recent advances in nonsurgical body contouring, all of which are increasingly in demand by a growing demographic of people wanting to look and feel their best without the expense, hassle and risks of traditional plastic surgery such as liposuction. In fact, the number of nonsurgical fat reduction procedures has increased by approximately 42 percent in just the past two years. But what’s truly remarkable about CoolSculpting isn’t limited to its already impressive ability to target unwanted fatty areas; this technology also stimulates new collagen and elastin fiber generation over a period of time, which can improve overall aesthetic results (tone, texture, etc.) significantly. Even liposuction, though it remains the gold standard for large amounts of fat removal, can’t claim to tone and tighten skin.
