If you’re here reading our Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery blog you’ve no doubt heard of CoolSculpting®, the revolutionary treatment that uses controlled freezing of fat cells to reduce fat in the treatment areas from 20-25 percent.
When you come see us at our Alpharetta and Atlanta offices, you’ve come to the right place for your CoolSculpting® treatments. Let’s get into why that’s the case in February’s second blog.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® was the invention of two Harvard scientists who had been researching the effect that eating popsicles seemed to have on children. Kids who ate lots of popsicles developed dimples. The scientists thought the cold somehow affected fat in the area, hence the dimples.
They applied this thinking to fat on the abdomen and CoolSculpting® was the born.
The core concept is that human fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other tissue cells. The CoolSculpting® device delivers controlled cooling downward into the treatment area freezing the fat cells while leaving everything else unharmed. This freezing kills around 20-25 percent of the fat cells in the treated area. The body then breaks down and flushes these dead cells from the body over the course of the next few weeks. With less fat, the patient’s contour slims. The FDA has so far approved CoolSculpting® for eight body areas.
