Cryolipolysis in Irvine
Cryolipolysis is non-invasive, non-surgical, targeted fat reduction. As part of this amazing innovative science of cryolipolysis, body fat is frozen and sloughed off by the body, but other tissue remains completely undamaged. Skin and muscle are entirely unaffected by cryolipolysis. Only targeted body fat is reduced.
Patients in Irvine can gain the benefits of cryolipolysis by means of CoolSculpting ® at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center. There, Dr. Siamak Agha uses his immense experience in the field of fat reduction to help patients gain a more toned physique and eliminate those problem areas unaffected by diet and exercise. Dr. Agha is a board certified plastic surgeon.
Cryolipolysis technology evolved over 45 years of research, including study and innovation by Harvard Medical School dermatologists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Cryolipolysis study started around 1970, when USSR scientists realized that concentrations of children who frequently ate frozen popsicles had more occurrences of cheek dimples than those who did not eat popsicles. Drs. Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson found interest in this popsicle study and provided updated attention to the effect of temperature on stubborn fat.
Courtesy the work of Dr. Manstein and Dr. Anderson, Cryolipolysis became a serious consideration in fat reduction. Their work proved that fat dies under controlled temperatures, but surrounding tissue does not. In 2008, the doctors’ findings for fat freezing as a means of body fat reduction became a harnessed technological advancement branded as CoolSculpting ®.
In short, this research proved that frozen body fat goes through a natural cell death and elimination process in the body. This includes the immune system’s release of enzymes which eliminate the dead cells. Those cells are then treated just as fats in food we eat are, toward eventual waste elimination from the body.
Cryolipolysis is basically the safe use of freezing for permanent fat reduction. The precise temperature range was determined and a means of applying the freezing, now known as CoolSculpting ®, was developed.
Cryolipolysis for Stubborn Fat Reduction
Stubborn fat is scientifically known to be resistant to diet and exercise. Scientists acknowledge this fat is largely unaffected by those activities.
So, just when you start thinking nobody understands how hard it is to reduce your love handles or inner thighs, you can gain satisfaction by knowing that scientists do understand your plight. As you head to the gym in Irvine, you can have peace in knowing that those same scientists have developed technology to help you in your stubborn fat reduction. Cryolipolysis is the science behind that technology.
CoolSculpting ®, a device developed in California by Zeltiq, uses Cryolipolysis to permanently destroy your stubborn fat without surgery or other invasive procedures. Dr. Siamak Agha of Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center in Irvine has vast experience in use of this innovative technology.
CoolSculpting ® targets diet and exercise-resistant areas of your body. The abdomen, hips and thighs are the primary targets of Cryolipolysis. For treatment, the CoolSculpting ® application paddles are positioned on your body and cooling occurs while you read, watch TV or even sleep, a little.
Targeted fat dies from this cooling. All surrounding tissue remains healthy and unharmed. The entire CoolSculpting ® session takes about one hour.
At the end of a CoolSculpting ® treatment, you will go on with your day unphased. Only your fat cells have undergone change. Those cells are neutralized and extracted by means of the immune system’s normal processes. After between six and twelve weeks from your CoolSculpting ® session, the Cryolipolysis cycle ends. It is then that you will notice you have gained a trimmer body with less fat on your treated areas. These results are permanent.
