Diet and exercise are the usual recommendations for losing weight and having a slimmer body. However, this practice although good for the health is not always effective in removing stubborn fat. For people who have already exhausted almost all efforts and methods, yet find it unsuccessful to reduce some fatty areas, CoolSculpting is one of the best solutions for them. This procedure is non-surgical which means your daily routine won’t be that much affected.
Principle behind the procedure
It is a technology that is approaching 50 years of research and successful treatments in performing localized fat reduction. At present this type of non-invasive treatment is growing increasingly around the world. CoolSculpting has been performed more than 3 million times. This is still the choice of non-invasive treatment for local fat reduction and body shaping.
Cryolipolysis is a technology developed in 1970 by Dr. R. Rox Anderson and his team of dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, the USA with their collaboration with researchers from Harvard University.
Their studies showed that fat cells are by their nature more vulnerable to cold than other surrounding tissues. Therefore, fat cells can be removed safely without damaging the skin that covers them.
This discovery led to the development of non-invasive procedure called CoolSculpting®. During the procedure a precise, controlled and secure tissue cooling results in selective damage to fat without damaging other tissues. Subsequently, the body will gradually eliminate fat cells by standard metabolic processes.
One of the most popular fat reduction procedure is liposuction. However, since it is a surgical operation, some people don’t want to go under the knife unnecessarily. Such reservation is understandable since, like all surgical procedures, liposuction carries some risks. It may be the case that your skin suffers some injury after surgery. There is also the risk of having an infection especially if the clinic doesn’t have best facility and equipment. There are also some risks that it can damage nerves and affect some vital organs. Though these incidents are rare, in the late 90s liposuction has higher mortality rate than motor vehicle accidents. From 1994 to 1998 one patient dies in every 5000 who underwent liposuction.
Since cool sculpting doesn’t involve surgery, it doesn’t have the risks involved in liposuction.
Uses the Body’s Natural Metabolism
After CoolSculpting freezes the unwanted fat cells, the body will take care of the rest. Frozen cells will die, and the body will then remove them as waste. That is why there are reports that some side-effect of CoolSculpting will make a patient pee after few hours or days.
Removed fat cells will no longer regrow. However, you should still keep a healthy lifestyle if you want to maintain the figure you achieved.
Can Remove Fats On Specific Areas
One of the difficulties with diet and exercise method is that some areas of the body will not be affected regardless of how much you exercise. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, will not have any problem targeting stubborn fat. The cool laser sculpting procedure will remove local fats. Say goodbye to your fats in your tummy, underarm and back.
Safer than other Cryolipolysis
Even though Cryolipolysis is safer than liposuction, CoolSculpting is still safer relative to other Cryolipolysis methods. The equipment is fully automatic. The performance is no longer dependent on the operator since it has sensors to detect if the temperature is lower or higher than necessary. It has security sensors to detect if it has reached the target temperature of -10 ° C. It also has an exclusive membrane that protects the skin. Thus it will avoid the risk of burns or necrosis.
Another important point to note about CoolSculpting is that health regulatory bodies in Europe, United States, and Mexico approve it.
Zeltiq is the company responsible for further research to be at the forefront with CoolSculpting. The company headquarters is in Pleasanton California. It is responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of the treatments at each clinic around the world.
