CoolSculpting® is one of the most promising fat removal treatments on the market. This cutting-edge, fat freezing procedure is designed to permanently eliminate unwanted fat, without incisions or actual tissue removal. Targeting common trouble zones such as the inner thighs, abdomen, and the under-chin area, CoolSculpting® makes it possible for people to sculpt their ideal physiques with no risk of scarring and absolutely no downtime.
What CoolSculpting® Is and How It Was Discovered
The process of freezing unwanted fats is called cryolipolysis. The possibility of applying cryolipolysis to disproportionate fat stores was accidentally discovered during a study on young children concerning the impact of low temperatures on cheek fat. This research determined that toddlers who ate large numbers of frozen juice bars often developed cheek dimples as the result of localized fat loss.
CoolSculpting® has tightly refined this idea to arrive at a procedure that eliminates unwanted fat stores, while simultaneously protecting the surrounding skin, muscle, and connective tissues. This is because stored fat freezes at a significantly higher temperature than either skin or muscle tissues. During this process, a special cooling appliance cools fat in the treatment area to the perfect temperature and at the perfect rate. Once frozen, the targeted fats crystallize and are then slowly broken down and removed from the body. The end result is a slimmer, sleeker physique, and a much more refined look overall.
Why CoolSculpting® Produces Permanent Results
Natural weight loss causes fat cells throughout the body to shrink. Unfortunately, these fat cells can grow in size, so there is always a reasonably high likelihood of regaining lost inches over time. Conversely, cryolipolysis destroys the unwanted fats that are targeted during treatments. Once these select fat cells die off, they’ll never return. As with all forms of weight loss, however, CoolSculpting® patients must maintain healthy life habits going forward. New weight gain still remains possible after a fat freezing treatment, particularly when patients fail to maintain balanced diets and routine exercise plans.
Anything that you do to create a calorie deficit will produce whole-body weight loss. As such, natural weight loss can make your body smaller, but it won’t selectively reduce your trouble zones or areas of disproportion. Body sculpting procedures allow people to trim their waistlines, remove double chins, eliminate jiggly fat at the backs of the arms, and more.
