Give Your Unwanted Fat the Cold Shoulder
- Posted on: Apr 15 2016
Unwanted fat isn’t cool, and often it’s more stubborn than your mother-in-law. It won’t respond to changes in your diet or exercise. This is especially true in areas such as the abdomen and thighs.
But at Saltz Plastic Surgery and Saltz Spa Vitoria, we give that fat the deep freeze with CoolSculpting®.
What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® and liposuction have the same raison d’etre — they are haters of pockets of fat that don’t respond to dietary changes or exercise. The difference is that CoolSculpting kicks that fat’s proverbial butt effectively and safely without surgery, while liposuction is an invasive procedure. CoolSculpting is the only procedure cleared by the FDA that utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
You may know the story of the accidental “discovery” of CoolSculpting. Two Harvard scientists observed that some children got dimples after eating popsicles. They theorized that the fat cells in the cheeks were dying from the cold temperatures, creating the leaner, dimpled cheeks. They were right.
They then researched if the same idea could be used on other areas of the body with unwanted fat. The result was CoolSculpting®, which uses controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to target and kill fat cells. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding non-fat tissue. So, by precisely targeting the fat cells with the correct temperature, they are frozen and die. Over the next few weeks the dead fat cells are eliminated naturally by the body.
The procedure is simple and pain-free
At Saltz Plastic Surgery, we customize your CoolSculpting® treatments to the areas you want addressed. The device is then positioned on those areas and the controlled cooling is applied. The procedure is simple — you can read, listen to music, check email, even take a nap during your session. CoolSculpting is totally non-invasive, so you can return to your normal routine immediately.
Over the next few weeks to months after your CoolSculpting procedure, your body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells, and once they are gone these cells are gone for good. CoolSculpting results are permanent.
