I have those “areas” — you know those places where fat collects, such as just below my belly button where a bunch of my fat cells like to get together and mingle.
And the problem is, while through diet and exercise I have achieved a healthy weight and what I want for the majority of my body, these trouble spots remain. They are stubborn and resist all my efforts!
So, I was more than excited to learn about CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ — a safe, effective and non-invasive way to reduce fat by cooling and destroying fat cells in common trouble areas that tend to be diet and exercise resistant.
It sounds incredible I know! But researchers at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, developed the patented technology behind CoolSculpting and it is safe and FDA approved.
“CoolSculpting® is the coolest, most innovative, non-invasive and natural way to quickly lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat.
Here’s the skinny: developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, patented, clinically proven procedure involves freezing fat cells without damage to your skin. There’s no knife. No suction hoses. No needles. No lasers, even. After your treatment, you get on with your busy day. How cool is that?”
The procedure can be done in a couple of hours and you can be back to work or play immediately afterwords. The company says that the results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after two months.
I am SO excited about CoolSculpting, I have agreed to test it out myself to let you all know how it goes. I haven’t had my consultation yet. But, if I am a candidate, I will be having the procedure soon and be reporting to you my experience and results.
