CoolSculpting ® Fat Reduction in Orange County
CoolSculpting ® fat reduction has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for body sculpting in the past several years. The Food and Drug Administration cleared Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting ® fat reduction technology for use on American patients in 2010, acknowledging that CoolSculpting ® fat reduction is safe and provides the results promised by the device manufacturer. This is something global communities had already realized, with hundreds of thousands of patients undergoing CoolSculpting ® fat reduction worldwide each year.
CoolSculpting ® fat reduction was developed by two Harvard doctors. These physicians had noted that children who frequently enjoyed popsicles often grew up with dimples in their cheeks, something seen less frequently in children who did not eat the frozen treats. Through further research, they confirmed that fat frozen in the cheeks from contact with the popsicles crystallized and was then eliminated from the body as waste. All of this occurred without damaging inner cheek lining, skin or muscle. Using these findings, the Zeltiq CoolSculpting ® fat reduction devices were developed.
Since CoolSculpting ® fat reduction became available on the market, patients, researchers, plastic surgeons and the media have resoundingly supported Zeltiq’s claims of fat reduction. Now widely acclaimed for specific areas of the body, CoolSculpting ® fat reduction treats flanks, abdomen, thighs, arms, and back of suitable candidates seeking targeted fat reduction.
Patients using CoolSculpting ® fat reduction at Orange County CoolSculpting ® have found the device works for permanent reduction of fat. Because CoolSculpting ® fat reduction is entirely non-surgical, these patients enjoy short one-hour sessions for treatment, then gain permanent reduction of fatty areas by an average of 30 to 35 percent. There is no recovery from the painless procedure and patients are able to return to their normal daily routine immediately following the hour-long session.
Good Candidates for CoolSculpting ® Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting ® fat reduction works best on a particular type of fat on specific locations on the body. This is because CoolSculpting ® fat reduction devices must be able to have the right contact with the body area for a specified period of time. Device design is largely responsible for where on the body CoolSculpting ® fat reduction can occur. CoolSculpting ® fat reduction is not designed for all-over fat reduction or for treatment of obesity. While off-label use is permitted, best results are seen on hips, abdomen, thighs, back and arms.
You are a good candidate if you have fat on your hips, arms, thighs, abdomen or back which is otherwise fairly unresponsive to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting ® fat reduction works well to treat these unresponsive areas. Your exercise routine in months following your treatment will even add to the quality of the device’s results.
