There’s been much discussion regarding CoolSculpting within the aesthetic community, with variable degrees of satisfaction among its users. The question of whether CoolSculpting procedure is worth it actually depends on the users’ understanding if the technology is suitable to address their body concerns. First we need to understand how CoolSculpting works and what it is best for. The science behind CoolSculpting CoolSculpting procedure is based on Cryolipolysis®, the proven scientific technology that has been discovered by researchers at Harvard Medical School. The successful discovery that extreme cold could be utilised to induce lipolysis to break down fat cells without damaging skin or surrounding tissue; has made a big impact within the cosmetic treatment niche since garnering FDA approval in 2010. The key to the technology is the controlled temperature at which the fat cells are frozen because the cells are more sensitive to cold than the surrounding tissue; therefore eliminating any harmful effect. The frozen fat cells are then broken down and are gradually expelled through the body’s immune system. How does CoolSculpting work? Firstly we need to dispel the misleading information that weight loss and fat reduction are similar process. They’re not. We have the same number of fat cells regardless of how big or small our body is. When we gain weight, the fat cells become larger and when we lose weight, the fat cells shrink. CoolSculpting works by targeting a selected area to decrease the quantity of fat cells, ergo, if fat cells are no longer there, they can’t increase in size. The procedure specifically delivers precise controlled cooling onto fat cells under the layer of skin to gently and efficiently crystalize or freeze the cells. The frozen or dead cells are then naturally processed and eliminated by the body over time. How long does CoolSculpting result lasts? You’ll be happy to know that CoolSculpting results are long term as once the fat cells are eliminated; they disappear for good without any change of fat cell distribution to other untreated areas. Who are suitable for CoolSculpting? Since its debut, it had tremendous response from many people wanting to rid themselves bulges of fat through a completely non-invasive procedure without any downtime at all. CoolSculpting procedure is ideally suited for those with stubborn fat that resists all attempts at diet and exercise. Meaning if you have love handles, linings of fats around the tummy, back body, arm and inner thigh areas; CoolSculpting is for you. However, if you have more than just linings of stubborn fat and are looking to reduce more volume of body fat, CoolSculpting is not for you. You would be better off with other procedures such as liposuction where large areas of fat can be sucked out of the body’s troubled parts while being more cost-effective too. Sit back & relax As CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you’ll just need to sit back and relax while the controlled cooling device is positioned over selected treatment areas of your body. As treatment is being administered, you’ll be able to take a nap, read a book or perhaps catch up over Facebook or look through emails. After treatment, you can immediately resume normal activities.
