Areas That You Can Target With CoolSculpting

Are you a person who is no more than 30 pounds overweight, but you have certain areas where you just can’t seem to get your fat to go away, no matter how much you diet and exercise? If so, CoolSculpting can be a great option for you. The CoolSculpt machine applies a very controlled amount of cold temperatures to the region you’re targeting. Fat cells that lie just underneath your skin are more vulnerable to cold than the skin itself, meaning that with the right controlled conditions, your CoolSculpting procedure will cause the fat cells to die without damaging the skin above them. It’s an FDA-cleared procedure that’s completely non-surgical, with minimal downtime.

Debunking the Spot Reduction Myth

Many different companies in the exercise industry would like you to believe that it’s possible to sculpt specific areas of your body by focusing your workout on them. For instance, they want you to think that, if you do enough sit-ups, you’ll have washboard abs. The reason why they want you to believe this is to sell more body-part specific exercise machines, workout videos and specialty equipment. But, fat loss is much more complicated than that, and many studies have proven that spot reduction through exercise just doesn’t work.

Zeltiq is a medical technology company that has created a way to reduce fat cells by cooling them just enough. The cold temperatures kill fat cells, which are then carried away by the body. It is a revolutionary process that delivers results for far less discomfort, time, and recovery than other methods.
