A frustration for anyone conscious of maintaining a healthy weight through balanced diet and regular exercise are those pesky fat pockets that stubbornly remain – but advances in technology mean there are now ways to remove love handles and muffin tops (and even double chins!) without any surgery.
By now you may have heard about Coolsculpting, the non-invasive way to permanently remove unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is a body-contouring system that uses a targeted cooling process to kill fat cells beneath the skin. Introduced to Australia in 2010, the technology can result in a 20-25% reduction in fat in the treated areas.
Perhaps the most impressive benefit is that, once destroyed, the fat cells are gone forever.
During CoolSculpting treatment, the unwanted fat is sucked between two cooling plates. This vacuum-like suction draws the area into the applicator head so that the cool temperature is directly delivered to the underlying fat cells to kill them while keeping the skin unaffected. The destroyed fat cells are then naturally metabolised by the body over the ensuing weeks and months.
Though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides as the area numbs. You may also feel some pulling, tugging and mild pinching.
A treatment can be performed in 35 minutes.
For the body, generally two or three sessions are required, performed six to eight weeks apart, although some people see fantastic results after just one treatment. It depends on how much volume needs to be reduced.
Final outcomes appear at about 12-weeks, resulting in smoother contours, a more sculpted body and a more proportionate physique.
Coolsculpting is a truly exciting scientific advancement, offering a simple and effective means to eliminate problem areas that just won’t budge with diet and exercise.
