"I went to Radova for Coolsculpting. It helped me reduce my arm fat and I'll be doing my second hopefully soon as my arm's have been my biggest problem area. I did not feel any pain or discomfort. The treated area felt numb for a few days but I was able to go to the gym and workout. Gabriela is always so nice and pleasant and she knows how to make her client feel comfortable. She takes her client's problems as her own and looks for best way to treat it. I have been more than a satisfied customer of hers. I now go for my melisma skin issues and I am glad I found this place.*" - Casey N.  *Individual results may vary.

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.

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.

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.

Cryolipolysis® was discovered by Dermatologists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Drs. Manstein and Anderson and their research team proved that, under carefully controlled laboratory conditions, subcutaneous fat cells (in the lowermost layer beneath the skin) are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissues. Their initial evidence, published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in November 2008, concluded that prolonged, controlled local tissue cooling can induce selective fat cell reduction and subsequent loss of subcutaneous fat without damaging the overlying skin. This discovery, called "selective cryolysis," led to the development of the patented technology behind the non-invasive CoolSculpting procedure.
