Skin Doctor Feature: Get Rid of Those Love Handles Today!
Summer is around the corner and that means almost everyone is assessing the damage done by couch sitting and comfort food cravings. Love handles (guys)/muffin tops (girls) must be addressed with diet and exercise, which often takes time and energy that not everyone possesses. The solution is CoolSculpting, a new FDA approved technology that reduces bulges by 20% or more with one treatment.
Here is how it works: the area to be treated is drawn by suction into a handpiece that slowly chills the area. As a result, 20% or more of the fat cells are killed off. The temperature is perfect enough to freeze the fat without freezing skin, nerves or muscle. The method is referred to as Cryolipolysis, which is the same phenomenon that occurs in what is called “popsicle panniculitis”. Harvard research developed the technology when observing what happens to a child’s cheek after sucking on a popsicle for too long; the fat in the cheek is lost. Researchers simulated this effect with a machine to remove stubborn fat bulges in the love handles, back fat or anywhere fat will not go away in fit, active people.
The treatment takes an hour and results are apparent within 8 to 12 weeks. Thankfully, it seems that once a fat cell is gone it does not return so results should last a lifetime. Need more than a 20% improvement? You can do the procedure again for a svelter contour. The best part? You can have CoolSculpting done on your lunch hour (actually 2 hours if you have two sides) and immediately return to work or any fun summer activity.
