A Magic Bullet for Body Bulges?
Los Angeles Dermatologist Rebecca Fitzgerald satisfies her clients’ wishes for a magic bullet to banish the bulge. The fat freezing system CoolSculpting super-cools fat cells for reducing muffin tops, love handles, poochy tummies and bra fat.
Bring ‘em on! Those long resistant fat bulges have finally come to be confronted with the power of cold.
CoolSculpting works through cryolipoysis – or “fat freezing”. L.A. Board Certified Dermatologist Rebecca Fitzgerald notes that most of her cosmetic patients are very health conscious and tend to take excellent care of themselves. Yet, despite exercise and healthy diets, many lament that there are fat bulges that simply refuse to budge. CoolSculpting’s revolutionary process makes removing or reducing those bulges a simple, painless, no downtime office procedure.
CoolSculpting – A Quick Safe In-office Bulge Buster
A one hour per area treatment can reduce the treated fat layer by up to 20%, effectively trimming you down a pant size. There’s no effort on your part, other than lying back for an hour or two and letting the machine crystallize the fat cells.
The surface skin is protected and unharmed as the cooling cups reduce fat cell temperature to the near-freezing mark. Held at that temperature for an hour, the cells begin to self-destruct and over a few months, they are eliminated by the body’s own natural processes.
As long as you don’t look at the process as a pass for uncontrolled eating or skipping out on your normal exercise, the effects are permanent.
FDA Approval for the Areas that Resist Exercise and Diet
CoolSculpting is a patented, FDA approved treatment for passively ridding the body of isolated fat pockets or fat bulges. Body areas that are effectively treated are the waist, abdomen, upper flanks and back (for women this is usually referred to “bra fat”).
Unlike liposuction, there is no surgery, no injections, no recovery. The most common post treatment effects are some short term redness, occasionally a bruise or some temporary numbness in the treated area.
CoolSculpting is Gradual
CoolSculpting effects are not immediate as the process uses the body’s natural response to cold, so patients need to understand they will see gradual improvement over 12 to 16 weeks. Further reduction can be achieved in additional treatments after that time.
Who is a Good CoolSculpting Candidate?
The best CoolSculpting candidates are within their normal weight range and BMI. This procedure is not an alternative to general weight loss and will only be effective on the specifically treated areas.
