What do Popsicles and Fat Removal have in common?
Isn’t it awesome when we can learn from history? CoolSculpting, which targets diet and exercise resistant fat and reduces the fat layer in the treated area, is a technology based on a finding in our history.
Who loves popsicles? Kiddos do!
In the 70s it was noted that many children who were eating popsicles began to form dimples. Why? Because the fat cells in their cheeks were being exposed to cold and as a result, those fat cells were set up to die a natural cell death process and flush out of the body.
This phenomenon still happens today and is called Popsicle Panniculitis.
Those who created CoolSculpting decided to take advantage of the fact that fat cells are highly sensitive to cold temperatures. In fact, when precise cooling is applied to a pocket of stubborn fat, the cold signals the fat cells to die!
When your fat cells die, they then flush out of the system through urine and waste.
Because fat is so sensitive to cold, the fat cells are the only cells damaged in this process. Skin and other tissue goes unaffected. CoolSculpting applicators have the ability to target very special problem areas, unlike trying to target an area with exercise or diet changes.
There is no downtime, no needles and it is 100% non-invasive. This makes it a great liposuction alternative and an attractive solution for men and women who struggle with stubborn fat.
When CoolSculpting is paired with proper diet and exercise men and women can truly transform their body and get curves in all the right places and obtain the illusive V shape men want!
If an individual wants to lose more fat cells in the areas treated, the areas can be treated more than once. The ideal time to retreat an area to get optimal results, is 4 weeks after the initial treatment.
It is key to take photos every 4 weeks for 4 months after your initial treatment in order to monitor progress and decide with your CoolSculpting expert if you want to retreat the area or another area in order to achieve the results you are looking for.
