What Is CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq works by freezing fat cells; a process scientifically called Cryolipolysis®*. This sounds impossible we know. Patients have reported losing up to 2 inches in a single treatment*
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. They discovered that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more susceptible to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue*. These Harvard studies confirmed that you can freeze fat away*. When exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, fat cells die and the amount of fat you have is reduced permanently*. Once these fat cells die, they cannot come back*. This is why CoolSculpting is like a non-surgical lipo (liposuction)*.
Depending upon the amount of fat reduction you desire, and amount of fat excess you are starting with, the treatment may be repeated more than one time to reach your CoolSculpting results goal*. After you freeze the fat, it takes a few months for the full result to become apparent*.
How fat cells work.
The number of fat cells is set during childhood and adolescence. That number varies little in adulthood. The number of fat cells is specific to you and varies from person to person
So what happens when your weight fluctuates?
When you start to gain weight, those fat cells expand, which in turn causes your waistline (and hips, and double chin, and thighs) to expand. When you eat healthy and exercise regularly, those fat cells shrink to give a slimmer and trimmer shape. If you stop those healthy habits, they will expand again, adding unwanted bulges.
