Freeze Away Those Extra Inches with a CoolSculpting Treatment

Fat reduction can be tricky for even the most dedicated health and fitness aficionados, since there are a huge number of factors that influence your body’s natural ability to metabolize calories and keep your fat levels in check. These factors include age, genetics, gender, use of specific medications, and the existence of medical ailments such as hypothyroidism.

The good news is that there have been a variety of major advancements in the world of cosmetic enhancement that have resulted in highly effective treatments and procedures to get rid of extra flab from your body. One such cutting-edge procedure that makes use of highly advanced technology to melt away the extra pounds is called the CoolSculpting treatment.

What Is the CoolSculpting Treatment?

The CoolSculpting treatment is an FDA-approved procedure that employs the use of patented cooling technology to destroy fat cells within the body. Also known as fat freezing, this non-invasive procedure works on the principal of exposing the target fat cells to extremely low temperatures and destroying them permanently.

Since the procedure incorporates the use of controlled and localized cooling to nearly 4 degrees Celsius, it leads to the death of the cells within the subcutaneous fat tissue layer without causing any undue harm to the overlying skin or other tissues.

How Is the Cool Sculpting Procedure Performed?

The CoolSculpting device makes use of powerful vacuum suction to pull the fat bulge and hold it in place between two cooling plates. The cooling plates are then activated to a preset temperature that ensures freezing, or crystallization, of the fat cells, which in turn causes cell death. Fat cells have a lower resistance to extremes of temperature as compared to the surrounding skin, blood vessels, and veins.

The dead fat cells are then eliminated from the body gradually by the natural system-cleansing function of the lymphatic system.

Why Should You Go for CoolSculpting?

Apart from its obvious effects in getting rid of stubborn fat from the various problem areas of your body, the CoolSculpting procedure has a number of other benefits:
• Unlike other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction that require you to go under the knife, the CoolSculpting procedure is a non-invasive treatment that does not involve any bruising, bleeding, or scarring.
• The only FDA-approved fat-freezing procedure, CoolSculpting does not incorporate any surgery or use of synthetic substances. The controlled cooling damages the cells beyond repair, after which they are excreted by the natural cleansing process of the body. As a result, the procedure is rightly touted as one of the safest and most effective procedures.
• While traditional fat-reduction activities such as diet and exercise only ensure a reduction in the size of your fat cells, which might inflate again once you stop your workout or start binge eating, CoolSculpting permanently removes the fat cells from the body. This leaves no room for the flab to bounce back.
• There is no downtime involved, so you can resume your regular activities right after the treatment.
