With the new year beginning to unfold, A New Me, tends to be the mantra that flows through our minds. But as we leave behind our bad habits, clean up our diet, and focus on self-improvement, it can be very discouraging when stubborn fat seems to continue weighing down our self-esteem as the year unfolds.
The non-invasive treatment, CoolSculpting, is one effective way to lose the fat and bring back your confidence quickly.
The Way It Works:
The device suctions the area while the cooling panels crystalize your fat cells. This causes apoptosis, which is the death of the fat cells, diminishing the fat layers. They are later excreted through the body via one’s urine.
What To Expect:
The device creates a temporary numbing effect, which will wear off within 4-6 weeks after treatment.
Results show can be seen in as early as 40 days, though most visible changes will occur between 60-90 days.
This is the perfect treatment for someone who has small pocket areas of fat and is not intended as an alternative for liposuction, which reduces large amounts of fat layers.
Do you have a general question? Ask Dr. Kassir and he'll post the answer here on his blog.
