When most people hear that there is a product that has been approved by the FDA that allows people to lose their belly without undergoing surgery, they feel a little skeptical. However, the truth of the matter is that CoolSculpting® is the fastest way to lose belly fat without surgery.
This may be the first time that you’ve heard of CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is a procedure that uses the power of controlled cooling to help you get rid of unwanted belly fat. It is not a weight loss procedure, it is not a diet, and it is non-surgical.
The procedure works because of the way fat cells in your body react to the cold. This idea of using cold to affect fat cells was first thought of a few years ago by researchers working in a hospital. These researchers were working around sick children. The sick children were given popsicles every single day, and some of the children had the habit of holding their popsicle in their mouth on the same side every day. Over the course of a few months, these researchers noticed that the children started to develop dimples in their face on the side of their face where they held the cold popsicles.
At first, the researchers were flabbergasted. They had no idea why this was happening. However, after further examining the situation, they realized that the cold temperature of the popsicle being held on the same part of the face for an extended period of time resulted in the loss of fat cells.
This led to years of study and research, which finally led to the creation of the CoolSculpting® procedure. With the CoolSculpting® procedure, cooling pads are placed on the part of your body that is being treated. During the treatment process, the treated areas of your body are brought down to a controlled cool temperature. The temperature is so cold that it causes the fat cells in that area to freeze and die. However, the temperature is not cold enough to damage the other tissue around the fat cells of the treated area.
When the fat cells in the treated area die, they become cellular debris. These cells, along with their fat content, are absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system and then they are removed from your body via the natural waste removal process. As a result, the fat that was stored in the treated area disappears. Gradually, a lean and sculpted body begins to emerge.
CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure. It is a body contouring procedure. It is not designed to help you lose weight and the results are not immediate, but it is considered the fastest way to lose belly fat without surgery, especially when used in conjunction with diet and exercise.
