What a great time we live in! With a focus on health and staying in shape, there are new ways of keeping slim and trim even if exercise isn’t doing it for you. If you have stubborn pockets of fat resistant to working out, now there’s the non-surgical fat reduction technique of freezing your fat away with CoolSculpting.
Through an FDA approved method, CoolSculpting uses an applicator to pull excess skin and fat into a suction cup. The freezing of the tissue commences but affects the fat cells more than other cells like skin, muscle and nerves. The fat “turns itself off” and is reabsorbed by the body and excreted through the liver and kidneys. As the fat is permanently removed, the surrounding skin tightens as seen in the photo above.
But what’s greatest about non-surgical fat reduction is that it can be used on the neck, front armpit fat, back bra chub, abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner/outer thighs and even the arms and knees! You may not necessarily need all of those areas treated but doesn’t it make you feel better knowing you have those options?! While CoolSculpting reduces the fat layer by only 25% as compared to liposuction (closer to 85%), it still can provide you an improvement without surgery or downtime.
During treatment, you can check your email, watch TV or even sleep. Without any incisions or anesthesia, everyone is a candidate for CoolSculpting. Even if you can’t decide between CoolSculpting or liposuction, you can do either one and it doesn’t preclude you from using the other down the road.
