ADVERTISEMENT Transform your body...naturally Eating well and exercising are important for happy, healthy living. The better shape we keep our bodies in, the less likely we are to experience life-altering health changes that can ultimately limit our enjoyment of life. Studies show even regular stretching and toning helps maintain balance and coordination that becomes necessary as we age. But even with a healthy diet in place and regular exercise, our bodies still go through changes. Hormone imbalances, age, surgical procedures, years of high fat diets, genetics and stress can all play a part in our body’s need to store fat and never let it go. Even if you’ve committed to a healthy lifestyle, you still may have problem areas that just won’t disappear. Sometime during teenage years, the number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes fixed. As you lose or gain weight, these cells don’t go away–they just become larger or smaller. In the past, invasive surgery was the only way to actually remove fat cells, but in 2012 a new treatment was approved by the FDA to help eliminate stubborn fat that persists despite diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, fat-reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to essentially freeze fat cells–not just shrink them–so that your body can then naturally remove them from its system. The treatment has a high patient satisfaction rating and noticeable, long-lasting results. Plus, patients do not experience downtime from work, the after-effects of anesthesia or an uncomfortable recovery. Harvard University scientists Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anders, MD are credited with first discovering the idea behind CoolSculpting. They noticed years ago that children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. This dimpling was actually a result of small pockets of fat cells being eliminated by the freezing action of the popsicle. This discovery led to Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based. The procedure works by placing a hand held applicator against problem fat areas and selectively freezing and destroying the fat cells underneath the skin. This process of precisely targeting certain areas allows your body to be sculpted back into its natural shape. Once the treated fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated from the body for good. A single treatment will typically produce a 20-25% reduction in the thickness of the fat layer. Currently the CoolSculpting procedure is FDAapproved for specific stubborn fat areas including the abdomen, hips, inner thigh, outer thigh and chin. The procedure is designed for those who have noticeable bulges in these areas. While it is a safe and non-surgical alternative to liposuction, it is not intended as a weightloss solution for obese patients. Before beginning the procedure, a CoolSculpting clinician, under the supervision of a licensed professional will discuss your goals for reshaping your body and determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. After seeing the results of their CoolSculpting procedure, many people feel more motivated to stay close to their ideal weight by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program. If you are interested in losing fat and looking slimmer in your clothes without surgery, CoolSculpting is a natural way to kick start your way to healthy.
