You know it was developed by Harvard doctors. You know that it’s been approved by the FDA. But, you’re still concerned. Here are 5 things to help you realize that the procedure is safe and that it could help give you the shape you want.
1. It doesn’t Harm Skin, Nerves or Blood Vessels. Simply, just the fat is frozen. Fat is a different substance. Your skin, nerves and blood vessels all are water-based. The process works at a temperature that will freeze the fat, but is above the freezing temperature of these tissues. Remember, it was discovered when children sucking popsicles lost fat in their cheeks – it was only the fat! They developed dimples not damage!
2. How does the Device Work? The device used for sculpting your body with cold is state-of-the-art. It has built in safety measures. Sensors monitor your skin – which is protected by a gel pad, too. If those sensors detect that your skin is too cold, the device shuts down automatically. No worries!
3. What about the Operator? Think of the person with the device as a specialist. He or she has had extensive training and is certified to assure your safety. When you undergo this procedure, it will be done in a doctor’s office or at a medical weight loss facility. In both cases, you have an MD who is overseeing and delivering the highest standards of care. The certification process for the specialist using the cold device is thorough and he or she is licensed to perform the procedure.
4. What about Downtime? There isn’t any! This is a noninvasive procedure so it doesn’t require recovery time. And, more importantly, there have been no long term negative effects reported with users. The procedure has been approved by the FDA.
5. What are the Results? This is not a weight loss procedure; it is a body sculpting procedure. Fat in the treated area is reduced by about 20% to 25%. After the fat dies from the cold, your body naturally eliminates it. You’ll start seeing results in about 3 weeks and improvement can continue for up to 6 months. One of the best things about the procedure is that it doesn’t leave lumps and bumps. Instead, you get a smooth surface with reduced fat!
You can spot reduce and sculpt your body with the cold. The CoolSculpting brand is the most widely known and it offers you safe, effective loss of fat cells in targeted areas. Remember, those fat cells are destroyed. They’re gone. And, they won’t be back!
