SCIENCE & ART

A Scientific Way to Reduce Fat

The CoolSculpting procedure targets and freezes fat cells with Cryolipolysis®, a unique advanced cooling technology. Fat cells in the treated area are then eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, gradually through apoptosis and phagocytosis, in a way that does not harm the surrounding tissues.

CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis® – non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue (body fat) to induce lipolysis (kill fat cells) without damage to other tissues. The result over two to four months is a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat.

The idea that cold can target fat is the insight behind Crypolipolysis® science. The aesthetics of body sculpting is the art.

The Art of Body Contouring

But rather than a surgical approach of removing fat body part by body part, only a trained aesthetic eye can create a detailed overall effect on the physique to give you the contoured look you want. At Radová Lifestyle we combine science and art to create lines emphasizing muscular definition.

Cryolipolysis®

Cryolipolysis® is based on the principle that fat cells are more vulnerable to energy extraction (cooling) than surrounding tissues. A non-invasive applicator is attached to the targeted procedure area to extract energy from the underlying fat tissue, while protecting the skin, nerves, muscles and other tissue. The cooled fat cells undergo apoptosis (controlled cell death) and are gradually eliminated, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.

During the procedure, exposure to cooling causes fat cell apoptosis, which leads to the release of cytokines (small proteins) and other inflammatory mediators. Inflammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months after the procedure. Lipids (naturally occurring molecules) from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed, much like fat from food. Because the lipid clearance process is gradual there is no harmful change in blood lipids or liver function.

Lipids in fat cells crystallize at warmer temperatures than other water-containing cells. This is how Cryolipolysis® targets only fat cells for destruction and spares other tissue such as skin, muscle, and nerves. The CoolSculpting system controls the rate of energy extraction or cooling during the procedure.

Target Fat Cells

CoolSculpting was developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photo medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. By using controlled cooling to target fat cells underneath the skin, CoolSculpting treats stubborn fat that diet and exercise alone can’t seem to touch. It can target fat cells, treating them without harming surrounding skin or tissue. The treated fat cells are then metabolized naturally from your body, and can leave the treated area sculpted and smooth. During a CoolSculpting treatment you can comfortably read, nap, work or check email.

Fat Targeting, Not Just Weight Loss

The advantage of CoolSculpting is it doesn’t just shrink the fat cells in your body like common weight loss; CoolSculpting can actually target fat cells, and can leave you with the mirror-friendly profile you always wanted. And because CoolSculpting can reduce fat cells, the results can be long term.* *Individual results may vary.

The Results Are In!

According to data from a Wakefield Research survey for the CoolSculpting procedure, 48% of respondents don’t think their bodies truly reflect their healthy efforts, and 58% believe they’re stuck with their current bodies. Here’s some healthy tips to flaunt your good side.
