By the time we reach adolescence, the body has laid down all the fat cells it will have as an adult. So when you put on weight your fat cells are swelling rather than multiplying. This means that once frozen, the fat cells undergo apoptosis i.e. they are destroyed and they do not re-grow. Zeltiq CoolSculpting® is a new approved technology that is completely non-invasive and successfully helps you remove fat permanently such as love handles, post-pregnancy paunch, muffin top, upper arms, inner thighs and under the chin. Coolsculpting® treatment developed by Harvard scientists and FDA approved is precisely controlled cooling to remove fat by a process called Cryolipolysis. The fat cells are then naturally absorbed and removed by the body without injury to the skin or other tissue that results from more invasive procedures such as liposuction. A single one hour treatment can achieve between 20-30% fat reduction. Results are visible from three weeks onwards with the most dramatic results showing at four months Results are usually visible from four weeks with the most dramatic results at four months.
Procedures that use laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can destroy other tissues in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal.
CoolSculpting® doesn’t affect any other cells but uses a targeted cooling process that only kills the fat cells underneath the skin.
No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars.
Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.
Minimal downtime and lasting results.
Unlike a lot of other procedures, CoolSculpting® takes very little time, usually one hour, is virtually painless and simple to fit into your daily life.
After your CoolSculpting® treatment you can typically get right back to your busy day. With procedures such as Liposuction several weeks off work are often required for recovery.
