Did you know that Coolsculpting had a sweet start? The inspiration for Coolsculpting came from popsicles. That’s right, two doctors noticed that kids who frequently sucked on popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. The idea that cold can target fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the Coolsculpting procedure is based.
Now that you know where this treatment originated, here are FIVE more surprising facts about Coolsculpting that you need to know:
Ideal candidates for the treatment are individuals who maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a healthy diet and regular exercise, but still have pockets of fat they would like to treat. The treatment helps you get in shape and sculpt those stubborn areas but is NOT a guarantee to treat obesity and is by no means a weight-loss procedure.
The number of fat cells you have is set in adolescence. If you lose or gain weight, it is the size of those cells that changes, not the number. Having only a set number of fat cells means that Coolsculpting is a permanent method of fat reduction in selected areas. Unlike weight loss surgery, (e.g., liposuction) Coolsculpting naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Coolsculpting is the world’s leading non-invasive fat reduction procedure. No needles, no scars, no downtime...just a smoother, leaner you! The procedure itself only takes 1 hour to treat a single area. You may return back to work, the gym, or other activities on the same day.
We get it, you're busy! But, did you know you can multitask during your Coolsculpting treatment? You can even freeze your fat on a work lunch break. It's as easy as bringing your laptop, phone, or iPad. In the treatment room, you can relax, watch movies, check your emails, read, or even nap during your 35-minute cycles.
Your skin can handle the cold. Your fat cells can’t. Coolsculpting can treat almost any “pinchable” fat on the body. This includes the abdominal area, love handles, bra fat, back fat, thighs, double chin, upper arms. etc. The procedure will reduce your fat layer by 20%-25% and the COOL part (no pun intended) is that the body does not replace the fat cells removed.
