Coolsculpting® by Zeltiq
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared non-surgical body contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which is then naturally eliminated from the body. CoolSculpting® allows for noticeable reduction in unwanted bulges without the need of needle or knife. Little to no downtime is required.
Developed by after renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, CoolSculpting® was born from the observation that some children ended up with dimples after sucking on popsicles. Cryolipolysis, the principle on which CoolSculpting® is based on, relies on controlled cooling for non-invasive local reduction of fat deposits to reshape body contours. The coldness target and crytallise fat cells. These crystallised fat cells gradually die a natural cell death (apoptosis) and is then eliminated from the body. Because CoolScuplting® selectively targets only fat cells, it does not harm tissue, nerves or muscles.
Results can be observe as early as 3 weeks with optimum results experienced after 1 to 3 months.
The ugly truth is that we all have stubborn fats that no amount of dieting or exercising is able to get rid of. If you can pinch an inch or two, Coolsculpting® can potentially be your answer to getting rid of these stubborn bulges.
