Unless you've been living under a rock... you know that I have been going to Ideal Image for a long time... 4 years to be exact. I've had laser hair removal on my legs, underarms, bikini (and now I just started my eyebrows!... it's life changing ladies!).
But on Saturday February 25th - I finally got to experience something I've been waiting FOREVER to do...... GET COOLSCULPTING!
Many of you have been asking questions ... so I'll do my best to answer:
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
It's the ONLY FDA-CLEARED treatment that uses a cooling technology to eliminate your fat cells WITH NOT SURGERY!!
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH COOLSCULPTING?
- Love Handles/Flanks
- Under the Neck (Double Chin)
- Back/Bra Area
- Male Chest
HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK?
Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® technology enables us to precisely target fat cells beneath the skin, and cool them to temperatures that trigger their natural death. This process, known as Cryolipolysis®, results in the treated fat cells becoming crystallized (frozen), and actually die. Because however the fats crystallize faster than normal cells, there is no damage to skin, nerves or other surrounding tissue.
Over time as the treated fat cells shrink and die, your body naturally metabolizes them, eliminating these dead cells, and leaving a more sculpted you. Unlike with diet or exercise where the fat cells are reduced in size, with CoolSculpting®, once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.
This is what I had to wear and what the machine looks like once you are getting your treatment....
