CoolSculpting® Lands a New Convert. Permanent Fat Removal without Surgery!
A Message From Dr. Amanda Brimhall
I’m a skeptical optimist at heart. So when a colleague first told me about CoolSculpting I rolled my eyes and assumed it was another gimmicky weight loss procedure. Are you kidding me!? No thanks. But after seeing her before and after photos and hearing a few more friends talk about it, I was intrigued. Did they know something I didn’t? I dove head-in to the research looking for the catch, but I was shocked to find it is actually an amazing and legitimate therapy!
The idea of CoolSculpting® was originally developed back in the 60’s after physicians noticed fat loss in the chubby cheeks of kids sucking on cold popsicles, a condition termed “popsicle pinniculitis”. Continued research using cold temperatures to crystalize and permanently kill fat cells, more formally known as 'Cryolipolysis', was done by Harvard University in the 80’s and 90’s. The science has been perfected over the past 25 years into a technique used as non-invasive in-office procedures to very specifically treat stubborn pockets of fat. The machine utilizes special technology to treat different areas of the body such as the belly, thighs, chin, or back to sculpt the body back to one's ideal shape. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold therapy than other tissues such as skin and muscle so the only tissue affected is the fat cell. The controlled cold temperature from the applicator crystalizes the adipocyte (fat cell) which kills it and the body reabsorbs the dead cells through natural metabolic processes. Voila! Lasting, safe, fat reduction.
See for yourself...
“It has been 11-weeks and my results have been stellar! It took about 6 weeks before I really noticed a change from the CoolSculpting and at 8-weeks it was really remarkable. I still can't get over how well it worked!”
