When researching how cold affects fat deposits, the concept led to the innovative fat freezing procedure developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
CoolSculpting technology delivers controlled cooling, which safely and effectively targets fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other tissues and are the specifically targeted for destruction by this treatment. The targeted fat cells are frozen, and then they die. As time goes by, your body eliminates the dead cells, leaving a slimmer, more sculpted physique.
If you have been struggling with stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, then CoolSculpting, a fat freezing procedure may be a dream come true. This FDA-cleared procedure safely contours your body while effectively freezing away unwanted fat for good – all without going under the knife or downtime!
All you have to do is sit back, relax, and kiss stubborn fat goodbye.
Once you and our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky select which areas to be treated, the device will be positioned on your body so that the controlled cooling can be applied. During the procedure, you can feel free to read, work on your computer, catch up on missed episodes of your favorite TV shows, check your email on your smartphone, or even relax and take a nap.
After the Procedure
Since the CoolSculpting procedure is 100% nonsurgical, you can return to your daily activities right away. In the weeks and months following the procedure, your body will get to work processing and eliminating the treated fat cells, and once the stubborn fat cells are eliminated by your body, they are gone for good!
Understanding Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss
A lot of people confuse fat reduction with weight loss; they are NOT the same thing. When a person loses weight, their fat cells shrink, but the number of fat cells remain unchanged. When we gain weight, those same fat cells become larger once again.
Here's where CoolSculpting technology comes in: It actually reduces the number of fat cells a person has in the treated areas. Fat cells that are no longer there, obviously can't get bigger.
Unlike other nonsurgical weight loss procedures, the fat cells eliminated through CoolSculpting are gone for good. Whether or not you want to lose weight, you'll be thinner, your clothes will fit better, and you'll look better.
