Losing weight can be difficult, and in certain cases, people need a little help. Traditionally, people would turn to invasive procedures or pills to help lose weight, and both methods present different inherent risks. In recent years, the FDA has cleared a new weight loss treatment called CoolSculpting. This treatment is non-surgical, so there is no need for needles, anesthesia, or invasive techniques. Considering this technology is so new, many people are asking what CoolSculpting is?
Simply put, this weight loss process uses cold to kill fat cells, while leaving all other cells and tissues intact. The cold compress is applied directly to areas of the body that have unwanted fat. Cooling devices are built with safety detectors that monitor the temperature of the compress as well as the temperature of the skin.
After the treatment, the body will take some time (usually more than a week) to process the dead fat cells naturally. In some cases (results do vary), the results of the process are long-term because CoolSculpting kills fat cells. Proper dieting and adequate exercise can help to keep the weight off.
