Over the past few years, non-surgical alternatives to liposuction have been popping up all over the place. The vast majority of them have come and gone because they cannot produce the results that they promise. Then, there is CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that uses cold to kill fat cells and then allows the body to remove the fat cells naturally. This is a procedure that has been shown to work and produce amazing results.
Good candidates for CoolSculpting® are individuals who have noticeable bulges on certain parts of their body that they do not like and they want to remove. CoolSculpting® is specifically designed to address the stubborn deposits of fat that you cannot get rid of with diet and exercise alone.
It is really important to separate CoolSculpting® from a weight loss procedure such as gastric bypass surgery. This is not a weight loss solution. It is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, which is not a weight loss solution, either. It is a procedure that is designed to sculpt your body by removing specific pockets of fat. It cannot remove large areas of fat for obese individuals.
One question people ask about CoolSculpting® is, “What happens to the fat?” Well, your fat cells are crystallized. That’s another way of saying that they are frozen. When they freeze, they die. Your body will remove the dead fat cells in the same way that it removes any other dead cell in your body. When these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good, so long as you keep up with your healthy diet and regular exercise.
Some may worry that freezing fat cells is dangerous. But it’s not. Interestingly, the idea for CoolSculpting® originated with doctors who were working in a pediatric ward. They noticed that patients who had a popsicle every single day and who sucked on it on the same part of their face every single day eventually developed dimples in that area. This is because the popsicle was freezing the fat, and the body was naturally removing it.
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that has been approved by the FDA. Millions of individuals have benefited from this procedure, and it has been shown time and time again to be effective.
