When adults gain weight (excluding obesity) the fat cells are simply getting bigger. When you lose weight, these very fat cells just get smaller. Thus, the fat gained is NEVER lost. This is why CoolSculpting is such a great option. Once treated with CoolSculpting, that number of fat cells begin reducing. With repeated treatments, the fat bulge can be eliminated to a minimal state. Once destroyed the body’s natural processes remove the fat from targeted treatment areas.
When you decide to treat with CoolSculpting, certain “applicators” are chosen for the specific area you want treated. When these applicators are put on your body, a vacuum pulls and holds the fat between cooling plates, which then freeze the fat to a temperature that will freeze the area to a solid block of ice. Yup, that is right, your fat will be frozen solid. This stimulates a process called apoptosis which is a programmed cell death. No other cells or organs are harmed, just fat!
When the treatment has completed, your nurse will provide a manual massage to further break down the fat, by as much as 68%. When the massage is done, your fat will return to its normal state. So you won’t be walking out with a block of ice!
CoolSculpting has been designed to treat most areas of the body, including the abdomen, bra bulge areas, love handles, arms, knees, inner and outer thighs and even the chin.
