There is always a part of our body that we dislike. A part that seems to be odd. It’s that area that you tend to stare at when looking yourself at the mirror and makes you feel so disappointed.
In most cases this area has nothing to do with excess weight. It is local fat that seems to persist despite your healthy diet and regular exercise. Until now for the management of local fat the only thing one could do included hospitalisation, anaesthesia, the use of a scalpel, medication, long recovery period, and quite often unsatisfactory results.
When you make local fat disappear, it goes for good…
Coolsculpting is the first and only non invasive method for the permanent removal of local fat, which has been approved according to the strict standards of the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is painless, effective and safe and when treatment is over local fat is over, too. And the result is permanent.
Coolsculpting, or in other words Cryosculpture, allows you to reshape your body. Its technology has been developed in Boston and it is based on the weakness of adipocytes – cool temperatures. American scientists found that when the adipocytes are exposed in low temperatures, they are crystallized and die, without affecting the neighbouring tissues of the skin.
A painless and targeted treatment
Through special vacuum applicators that are attached on the local fat, the device exposes adipocytes in temperatures between -10 oC, in a safe and controlled manner. The cold sensation is only evident for a few seconds, as the skin becomes numb quickly and no further irritation occurs.
At this point you can relax and say goodbye to local fat. When the treatment is over, which lasts approximately one hour, excess adipocytes have already been crystalised and the organism has already set into action all natural processes against fat and for the elimination of dead adipocytes through the lymphatic channels
The difference between adipocytes’ reduction and weight loss
It is a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. This is wrong. When we lose weight our adipocytes become smaller but their number remains the same. Thus, when we gain weight the said adipocytes become larger again.
CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of adipocytes in the treated area(s). Even in cases that we regain weight at a later stage, on that area no new fat deposition will occur since adipocytes are no longer there and they cannot become larger. Therefore, no matter if your weight has increased or decreased, you will still have less fat on that area and you will still be able to fit in your clothes and feel comfortable.
