No matter how much we faithfully stick to our diet and exercise program, some stubborn pockets of fat remain. Even if we’re approaching our desired weight, our body contours still leave much to be desired. The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure can help get rid of those localized areas of excess fat. It’s not done with chemicals, and it doesn’t involve liposuction. Instead, the fat cells are literally frozen. When the fat cells freeze, they are eliminated from the body with other waste. CoolSculpting® is based on proven science, so it’s no wonder we highly recommend this body contouring treatment.
Excess Fat Deposits
Even when we eat a low-fat diet and exercise on a regular basis, some of the fat remains. These deposits are located in areas where a much higher buildup once existed, but because of how our bodies use fat as an emergency fuel system, it’s only logical that some of the fat never seems to go away. This doesn’t mean that it’s harmful to get rid of it, however.
These areas where small fat layers persist aren’t all that deep below the skin surface. This means that the heat energy of the fat can be easily drawn out. The CoolSculpting® procedure works much the same way a popsicle does to absorb heat. CoolSculpting® is performed by using an instrument that absorbs heat much more rapidly than it gives off. It’s much like a cold pack that athletes use when they suffer a painful bruise.
How It’s Performed
After consulting with the client and noting the size and depth of the fat deposits, we calibrate the instrument to a certain temperature and power setting. When we press the instrument against the skin, the heat in the fat cells is conducted away. It’s absorbed by the instrument itself. Since fat cells are more sensitive to cold, they actually freeze. The skin itself isn’t damaged.
The client may notice a slight bit of improvement almost immediately, but most of the fat cell elimination and improvement in overall contouring will take place in the following weeks and months. Because the fat is mostly eliminated rather than redistributed, it’s gone for good. The procedure can be repeated at regular intervals, but most of our clients report satisfactory results lasting for quite a long time.
