How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting Chevy Chase

CoolSculpting is the new and revolutionary fat reduction procedure, available to men and women of all ages.

The ease and comfort of the process is encouraging even men to try out the treatment.

That’s when men shy away from cosmetic treatment in general- fat reduction especially.

So how does it work?

CoolSculpting Works Almost Exactly Like It Sounds

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just freeze fat off our bodies?

Well, that might be the best way to describe CoolSculpting. Scientists noticed the interesting phenomenon of dimples appearing on children who ate popsicles.

A story was also making rounds at the time that a woman who rode a horse naked through a blizzard had lost fat on her thighs.

So the cosmetic world took note.

The scientific name for the technique is Cryolipolysis. Using cold, which damages fat tissue without harming the tissue around it, doctors can precisely target the fat in any of the typical “problem areas.”

In fact, CoolSculpting was just approved for more problem areas around the outer thigh.

Why’s CoolSculpting So Popular?

There are two answers to this one. The first is that it’s astoundingly easy, painless, and affordable.

Fat reduction can be extremely expensive, and procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks are not only painful, but have long recovery periods. Not so for CoolSculpting.

But the second is that the procedure is fundamentally different in its ability to actually kill fat tissue. Whereas diet and exercise can reduce the size of fat cells, only procedures similar to CoolSculpting actually kill the cells.

This can lead to longer lasting results, and more fundamental control on sculpting the look of the body.

If you think you might be a good candidate for CoolSculpting, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor. Consult with a specialist to see if the procedure is right for you. If you want to find out more, call here or check out this website.
