Are You Curious About CoolSculpting®?
- Posted on: Apr 15 2018
One of the most innovative treatments for excess fat has been highlighted in the media recently. CoolSculpting® is a treatment that freezes fat cells to gradually reduce areas of stubborn fat. Here are some insights about CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® is for Fat Reduction, Not Weight Loss
Diet and exercise remain the healthiest and best ways to lose extra pounds. If you are considering CoolSculpting®, you should be near your ideal weight. Your physician can assess your body mass index or BMI, and other factors to determine the ideal weight for your body style.
Full Results Take Time
As much as all of us would like to see our fat suddenly disappear, fat reduction with even the most advanced technologies does take time. You may see some changes in your body after your first CoolSculpting® treatment, but the effects of freezing the fat cells can take several weeks.
Your Body Uses and Eliminates the Fat
So where does the fat go after the CoolSculpting® treatment? The freezing process of the procedure breaks down the membrane of the fat cells to release the contents. This is similar to what happens when you exercise, but with CoolSculpting®, the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Once the contents are released, your body either uses it for energy or eliminate through natural processes.
Applying Ice to Your Fat is Not the Same
It is true that CoolSculpting® applies a concentrated cooling effect to fat cells, but you cannot achieve the same results at home. The system that is used for the treatment is designed to penetrate deep into the layers of skin. Trying to mimic the process at home may only result in a bit of frostbite.
