Have you ever wondered how celebrity mothers bounce right back to their flawless selves mere months after giving birth? Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton are just a few of the new mothers that look like they’ve done nothing but abdominal exercises since their first child was born. Some claim its good genes and a killer workout regimen, but there are ways to take care of stubborn belly and love handle fat without spending all day working out. Thanks to a revolutionary new form of non-invasive treatment known as CoolSculpting, melting away stubborn fat has never been easier!
Dr. John Westine and the staff at Delray Beach Plastic Surgery are pleased to offer CoolSculpting, the latest breakthrough in fat reduction that doesn’t involve a single needle, knife, or medication. Using a patented cooling technology, CoolSculpting has been proven to help eliminate troublesome fat areas around the belly and back that are nearly impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. The process, known in the scientific community as Cryolipolysis, was developed in 2005 and involves using targeted cooling technology to gently cool specific pockets of fat.
What is CoolSculpting?
The development of CoolSculpting began with researchers discovering that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the skin and other body tissues. Cooling fat cells specifically jumpstarts a natural biological process known as apoptosis, or the natural end of a cell’s life cycle. The process is completely non-invasive and does absolutely no damage to surrounding skin, nerves or other tissues. It simply breaks down fat cells by applying coldness while leaving everything else untouched.
When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Westine and his staff, we start with a consultation to discuss the specific areas you would like to target and what your overall body goals are. The CoolSculpting device is placed so the cooling panels are positioned over the targeted area and in about an hour the procedure is over. Patients do feel an intense coldness at first, but that soon disappears and many patients either grab a quick nap or enjoy a good book while the procedure is taking place. The best part about CoolSculpting is its comfort and convenient with no adverse side effects, meaning patients can return to their normal activities immediately. You can go right back to work after the procedure is over!
With regular treatments over the course of a month, the majority of patients see a 20% decrease in fat cells in the targeted areas. When coupled with a healthy lifestyle, CoolSculpting can help someone look and feel their best! CoolSculpting isn’t intended for significant weight loss, rather just for that last few pounds that are the toughest to lose.
