Many people have stubborn pockets of fat that simply do not respond to diet or exercise. Until recently surgery was the only option. Now there is a non-surgical option that has become so popular it’s quickly becoming a household name. It’s a medical treatment known as CoolSculpting®. The technology behind CoolSculpting was born in the 1970’s from the simple observation that children who were eating a lot of popsicles were developing dimples in their cheeks where dimples had not previously existed. It was also observed that women riding horses in the winter were reporting fat loss on their inner thighs. Research determined that when fat is exposed to extreme cold for a specific period of time it will freeze, while other tissue remains unharmed. Now, that called for some further investigation! Surely this phenomenon could be put to good use!
Research that was done at Harvard Medical School determined that when fat cells are frozen they crystallize and undergo apoptosis. What this means in layman’s terms is that the cold exposure causes the cells to die much the same as they would from natural old-age. The difference is that when cells die of old-age they replicate themselves before they pass away. In this case, there is no time to replicate. After the treatment, the crystallized fat cells clear gradually through the body’s natural physiological processes. Most people start noticing fat loss at about the four-week mark. At eight weeks the results are usually undeniable, and results continue to improve for four months.
Those fat cells are gone for good!
CoolSculpting works well, achieving results that are comparable to liposuction, but without the risks, discomfort or downtime of surgery. Not intended for weight loss, this revolutionary fat freezing procedure is clinically proven to reduce localized pockets of fat. CoolSculpting is most often used to target fat on the abdomen, the outer thighs, and the flanks. Other areas that patients commonly seek out include back fat, male chest fat, inner thighs, arms and double chins. Results vary from person to person, but in most cases, only one treatment is required. Patients wishing to debulk may require a second round.
A CoolSculpting treatment begins with an assessment. The treatment plan is mapped out to determine how many areas need to be treated to achieve the desired result. A variety of cooling devices of different shapes and sizes accommodate different areas of the body. During a treatment, a thin protective pad saturated with coupling gel is placed on the treatment area. This protects the skin from frostbite. The appropriate cooling device is applied and then you simply relax comfortably while the fat freezes.
CoolSculpting is the number one fat reduction treatment in the world because it works! The proof is in the 70+ clinical studies that validate its effectiveness.The others might have a study or two, maybe three, but CoolSculpting has over seventy clinical studies proving it works! The evidence speaks for itself. CoolSculpting consistently outperforms the others.
Skinpossible has every shape and size of the cooling device and the newest advancements for shorter treatment times. We also have three machines!
