SAN RAMON − CoolSculpting® is one of the most cutting-edge innovations in weight loss. The concept behind CoolSculpting was discovered many years ago when physicians noticed the dimpling effect that occurred as children sucked on popsicles. After further research, the physicians found that this effect was a result of cold temperatures causing lipolysis of the fat cells in the children’s cheeks.
Today, using modern technology, physicians are applying this concept to weight loss by using cold temperatures to eliminate unwanted fat cells in the body. Specifically, CoolSculpting targets areas of the body that are the most resistant to diet and exercise, such as the stomach. Fat cells are frozen by applying the CoolSculpting device to the targeted area. The cells die within roughly 30 minutes, after which they’re gradually reabsorbed by the body. Fast, easy and non-invasive, CoolSculpting is an effective alternative to conventional weight loss techniques.
