What Is CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing procedure. It is considered as the only non-surgical fat reduction treatment with an approval from FDA. It uses controlled cooling techniques to eliminate stubborn fat, which often stays and doesn’t go away despite diet and exercise. By removing and reducing the stubborn fat, you get to really lose your weight the healthy and right way. In other words, the procedure targets both fat reduction and body sculpting.
The Science Behind CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting uses the procedure called fat-freezing. The discovery behind this procedure started at Harvard University years ago. Scientists there discovered, by observing children eating popsicles, that the popsicles were freezing and reducing pockets of fat cells.
Later on, this discovery gave birth to the idea that using cold to target stubborn fat cells can be used in fat removal and reduction, without damaging the skin and the surrounding tissue. This science was from which CoolSculpting was based upon.
How It Works
The procedure uses controlled cooling. This method gently targets the fat cells found underneath the skin. When the fat cells are frozen or crystallized, they eventually die. Your body will then do the rest. Naturally, your body will process and eliminate the fat and dead cells. When paired with healthy lifestyle and exercise, this can result in a more toned and sculpted version of yourself.
Fat often resists diet and exercise. The fats don’t really go away, only shrunk and stored somewhere. However, in CoolSculpting, the fats are killed with the help of controlled cooling. When the fat cells are frozen, they gradually and eventually die off, with assistance from your body’s natural process of eliminating the dead cells. This is what makes CoolScupting a safe and effective means of fat reduction and body sculpting. Since the fat is gone for good, you will enjoy long-term results.
Losing Weight vs Losing Fat
Losing weight and losing fat are not the same. This may sound confusing, but it’s true. It’s not the weight that only matters, but also what happens to the fat cells. When you want to lose weight, your aim must be fat removal and reduction, not just weight loss.
Your weight does not determine the number of your fat cells. It does not mean that if you have lesser weight, you have fewer fats. When you lose or gain weight, what normally changes is the size of the fat cells. They tend to become large or shrunken. So when you go on a diet and exercise, you will eventually lose weight but the number of your fat cells will remain the same.
In CoolSculpting, the number of fat cells is actually reduced. Studies show that the fat cells in treated areas can be safely and effectively reduced by up 25%. Because the fat cells are eliminated from your system, the results are long-term and permanent.
