Fat can be as stubborn as a two-year-old rolling about on the floor of the canned vegetables aisle in the grocery store. You eat right, you exercise, but it just keeps on keeping on. But you’re not keen on having an invasive procedure such as liposuction to get rid of the fat pockets.
What to do? As you should do with the screaming two-year-old, you should give the fat the cold shoulder.
For the fat that means CoolSculpting with Dr. Hetzler.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting kills fat cells through controlled freezing. It’s the only procedure that does that and it doesn’t involve any surgery. Worldwide over 2 million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed.
Two Harvard scientists discovered the process that is now CoolSculpting. They were researching how cold from eating popsicles may have affected the development of dimples in some children. They found out that the popsicles had actually killed some of the fat cells, making the area leaner and creating dimples. They then applied the same research to fat pockets and found the same held effect true. The process of freezing the fat cells is called cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting works because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissue cells. When the CoolSculpting freezing paddles are applied to the target areas, they deliver precisely controlled freezing into the tissue below. These temperatures only freeze the fat cells, leaving the adjacent tissues undamaged. Fat cells are crystallized and gradually die off. As with any dead cells, the body removes them from the body through the lymphatic system.
How much fat does CoolSculpting put in a deep freeze?
Research shows that patients experience a 20% reduction in fat in the treatment areas. Because most people have more than one area they seek to target, most of our CoolSculpting patients opt to have six to eight treatment sessions. Each session lasts around one hour and patients can read or watch Netflix while the treatment is ongoing. If you opt to have an area treated a second time with Dr. Hetzler, however, note that the fat reduction is not as high as the first time.
Where can I have CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting can be used really all over the body. The usual target areas are the upper thighs, love handles, lower stomach, behind the knees, and under the chin.
So, why not get ready for the Shore this winter by putting the freeze on your unwanted fat with CoolSculpting. Call Dr. Hetzler at 732-219-0447 for an appointment.
