Coolsculpting: Effective Non-invasive for reducing fat cell



What is Coolsculpting? Coolsculpting is a non-invasive technology using controlled cooling to kill local subcutaneous fat cells which is safe and effective. In a suitable duration, Coolsculpting leading to Cryolipolysis™ causes adipose cell freezing and defunctioning. Thus, subcutaneous layer becomes thinner and is unable to restore or regain. Similar to liposuction, this technology causes stubborn adipose cells to go for good.


Working Principle

Normally, losing weight by diet control, exercise or body slimming with ordinary treatments is unable to reduce the number of adipose cells as those methods just change fat cell size. If you gain weight, those cells can expand as well. With Cryolipolysis from Coolsculpting, an applicator emits cold energy into the skin layers and stabilizes its temperature at -12 °C for a while until the fat cell is freezing and atrophy. After that, the lymphatic system will remove these dead cells from the body.

Since the adipose cell is decreasing, the subcutaneous layer becomes thinner. This technique can powerfully reduce 20-25% of unpleasant adipose cells in the treatment area, and atrophic cells will not restore nor regain its numbers. Thus, Coolsculpting is as potential as liposuction. However, Coolsculpting is beyond liposuction because it causes no wound, no rehabilitation, and is very safe. Additionally, this technique does not affect adjacent cells such as skin, vessels, nerves, and so on. It is found that adipose cells will become atrophy after 2-3 days of treatment, and a satisfying result will be seen after 3-6 weeks. Those ugly fat cells will be naturally eliminated from your body. This treatment focuses on local excessive fat which is located in the hardest place to remove or ineffective reduced by diet control or exercise such as the belly, back, love handle, side of your body, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, and also breasts in a male.
