Can You Really FREEZE Fat?

The Science Behind Coolsculpting
You absolutely can! The science behind CoolSculpting is a process called Cryolipolysis, which is based on research out of Harvard University. Cryolipolysis is when fat cells are exposed to freezing temperatures for an extended period of time, causing them to go through apoptosis (which is natural cell death). The body’s lymphatic system will then eliminate the fat from the body.
With CoolSculpting there are no incisions, no needles and no scars. Only the targeted fat cells will be frozen, preserving the health of nearby tissues. CoolSculpting can be conducted on virtually any part of the body, including the stomach, flanks, thighs, arms, and back. The results of CoolSculpting are seen over time, as the body works to eliminate the fat cells. Usually the full results are seen in 3 months.
Does it Also Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite?
Cellulite is another concern that many women of all ages have. Though it is possible that some improvement may be seen in the appearance of cellulite, CoolSculpting is not designed for that. Over the years there have not been many treatments for cellulite that have produced great results. However, there is a cutting-edge cellulite reduction treatment called Reaction by Viora which yields GREAT RESULTS!
Reaction combines radio frequency and vacuum therapy to target areas of cellulite and improve the appearance of the areas treated. The best results are seen after a series of 4 – 8 treatments. The procedure is painless, safe for all skin types, and each treatment only takes about 20 – 30 minutes.
