coolsculptingCoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that freezes fat fells in targeted areas of the body. After the fat cells have been frozen, they essentially die and are taken away by the body’s natural excretory system. A few weeks later, patients will begin to notice a smoother body contour that may otherwise have been unachievable through traditional diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative to other body sculpting procedures such as liposuction. However, it’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not considered a weight loss procedure and is designed to treat individuals who are within their target, healthy weight. To follow are some of the top benefits of CoolSculpting and how you can have your body beach-ready before the summer is upon us.
