An effective nonsurgical alternative to liposuction

Posted 02/01/2016 by admin

CoolSculpting is the name of a device put out by a company called Zeltiq. CoolSculpting involves a new approach to removing stubborn fat called “cryolipolysis”. A localized bulge of fat – such as the flank or bra strap roll – is placed in an applicator for 1 hour. The machine cools the fat cells which are more sensitive to the cold than the surrounding skin, nerves, or blood vessels. Some of the fat cells are altered, stimulating the release of natural signaling chemicals in the body called cytokines. These cytokines trigger the natural self-destruction of your own fat cells by a process known as apoptosis. Your body then clears these destroyed fat cells using the same mechanisms it uses to clear dietary fats.Studies show that clearance of these fat cell remnants does not elevate your natural blood fat levels.
