CoolSculpting® – An ‘Ice Age’ Procedure Whose Time Has Come?
Can a 21st century, FDA-cleared procedure be best described as “Ice Age” in origin? Now there’s an interesting question: if anthropologists tell us there were few, if any, “obese” cavemen, is it possible our early ancestors knew something we don’t?
In fact, we’re referring to the “coolest”, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. Known as CoolSculpting® (cryolipolysis), this revolutionary technology targets and freezes unwanted fat, then eliminates it naturally eliminated from the body.
CoolSculpting® has been available for only five years. But, in that short time, this fat reduction procedure has proven itself to be an effective technique for treating stubborn fatty spots with results that can be visibly dramatic.
This post is the first in a series related to information about this exciting, new quick-fix fat reduction treatment that is sweeping the country.
The first question anyone asks, when hearing about CoolSculpting® for the first time, is “What, exactly, is it”?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment, a cheaper and quicker way to unwanted fat, that’s resistant to diet and exercise. When compared to liposuction and other invasive procedures. With CoolSculpting® there’s no downtime, no after-care or follow-up, no incisions, no needles, no cutting of any kind. You return to your daily life immediately following a treatment.
What, exactly, should you expect? A special applicator is placed on the treatment area, chilling the skin and, over time, freezing and killing the fat cells in that area.
Treatment areas of the body vary. For men, this could mean those ‘love handles’ in the stomach area. For ladies, that might mean the ‘muffin top’. Or, perhaps it’s the inner thighs where stubborn fat is preventing you from having the trim look you would like.
Where does all that “frozen fat” go when it dies? After being crystallized by CoolSculpting®, those fat cells are eliminated naturally by the body over the four to six months following treatment, with the most dramatic results typically apparent 12 weeks after treatment.
The end result? A more sculpted you.
So, what’s the skinny on CoolSculpting®? Simply put, it is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment option that eliminates stubborn fat otherwise resistant to diet and exercise.
And, unlike the cavemen’s Ice Age procedures, CoolSculpting®’s results are lasting!
