What is CoolSculpting?
- Posted on: Jul 30 2015
Everyone knows that fat cells harden when chilled. Just look at cooked meat after it is refrigerated. But who knew freezing fat cells would kill them?
That’s what occurred to two Harvard scientists who observed that children got dimples after they ate popsicles. They made the assumption that the dimples were being caused by the fat cells responding to the cold temperatures. And it was true, the fat cells were dying.
That was where CoolSculpting came from. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target and kill fat cells. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding non-fat tissue. By precisely targeting those fat cells with a specific temperature, they freeze and die, while the surrounding tissue is unaffected. Then, over the next few weeks, the body eliminates those dead fat cells naturally.
CoolSculpting is the only procedure cleared by the FDA that utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. And it does it without surgery and without any recovery time.
When having CoolSculpting done at Dr. Shel Wellness & Medical Spa, you can relax during the procedure — you can read, listen to music, check email, even take a nap. The handpiece specifically targets the desired areas only.
CoolSculpting results improve with time. As the body eliminates the dead fat cells, your new slimmer contour emerges. And those fat cells are permanently gone.
