Freeze your fat away by Coolsculpting

Developed by renowned scientists of Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, the FDA-cleared procedure known as CoolSculpting uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat cells, without surgery, and little to no downtime. The reduction in fat cells in the treated area provides noticeable, and lasting results to help you look and feel your very best.

Sometimes, no matter how intense your workout or strict your diet, you can’t seem to ditch stubborn fat. We all have certain trouble areas where flab builds up and doesn’t shed, despite our best efforts. Wouldn’t it be great if you could reduce those problem areas without the traditional methods like diet and exercise?

  • Anesthesia: No anesthesia required
  • Length of procedure: 60 minutes per treatment area
  • Estimated recovery time: Most patients can exercise, return to work, or resume their regular daily routine immediately following their CoolSculpting procedure.
  • Side effects: CoolSculpting can cause tingling, sensitivity, redness, and numbness to the treated area, but none of these require time off or anesthesia. Symptoms resolve within days or weeks.

How Is The Procedure Performed?
During your consultation, the patient’s specific problem areas and candidacy for CoolSculpting are determined. Your overall body constitution, the location and amount of fat excess, patient expectations and your desires are determined. A treatment plan is developed specifically for your situation. CoolSculpting is performed without medications or anesthesia. The body area to be treated is mapped and your nurse will apply a specific gel sheet in order to protect your skin. A vacuum applicator is chosen for your particular sculpture which allows the fat pocket to be drawn away from your trunk for the treatment. Cooling panels positioned within this applicator initiate the temperature reduction of the fatty tissue. Safety is provided through sensors within the applicator that deliver feedback for proper cooling. The treatment continues for exactly one hour; mild massage of the treated fat tissue marks the end of the therapy. No other local care is necessary after the treatment.

What Does CoolSculpting Feel Like?
Majority patients experienced the CoolSculpting procedure with ease; partly because cold  is an effective anesthetic. During the treatment, patients read, listen to music or simply rest; even napping has occurred. For many, the application of the gel pad gives them a little shiver although these pads are stored at room temperature. The moment when the treatment area is sucked into the applicator is described by most as “interesting” or “strange”. Other patients find this uncomfortable. The cooling down phase feels similar to the use of an ice pack to this part of your body. Once the pain reducing anesthetic qualities of cold come slowly into effect, patients relax for the remainder of the 60 minutes; the CoolSculpting machine gently humming in the background.

What Can You Expect After The CoolSculpting Procedure?
After removal of the cooling applicator, the treated area is still cold (although numb) and will appear prominent. As the tissue regains its normal temperature, the normal shape will return leaving just some skin pinkness behind. By the next day, many patients do not see or feel much in the treated area; others have described a slight sense of tenderness. Because of the negative suction pressure, the treated area can appear like a “hickey” with some broken capillaries or mild bruising. Total resolution of these signs usually takes a few days, but can take up to a couple of weeks.

When Will You See Results After CoolSculpting?
Because of the natural removal of fat cells, patients have to allow their body to do the work. It takes easily 3 weeks for most patients to observe a slight improvement. Complete treatment results can take 3 or 4 months during which time the body had a chance to completely remove the apoptotic fat cells necessary for the cosmetic improvement. Studies proved a 22 to 25% reduction of fat in the treated areas, enough for good candidates to see a significant improvement.

Can I Have Additional CoolSculpting Treatments?
CoolSculpting is designed to deliver results after one treatment session; it is not a mandatory treatment series. This does not prevent further treatments, even in previously treated areas, if a patient seeks additional benefits. We recommend waiting 3 months before undergoing the second CoolSculpting session of the same regions; other regions can be treated at any time.

What Are Possible Side Effects After CoolSculpting?
Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting was found to be a very safe and effective non-invasive and no-downtime procedure. You can resume your normal activities after the treatment. The most common side effects are related to the cold temperature and suction application to the skin including pinkness, pins-and-needles sensation, skin numbness, broken capillaries or bruising, tenderness and pain which may take up to a couple of weeks to resolve. The most significant side effect that has been described  is more significant pain in the treatment area that may last a couple of weeks to resolve. This pain always resolved and it remains unclear why so very few people develop it in the first place. No long-lasting side effects have been encountered.

How Long Will The CoolSculpting Results Last?
The procedure is based on cryolipolysis, a permanent reduction in the number of fat cells within the treated areas. The number of fat cells will not increase after they have been removed through CoolSculpting. Of course, weight gain is undesirable after CoolSculpting. In cases of weight changes, the volume of remaining fat will be effected but an advantage will continue.

Does CoolSculpting Replace Weight Loss Through Exercise Or Diet?
No, it does not. In fact, CoolSculpting will be most effective for patients within 10 to 15 pounds of their ideal body weight. If you plan on losing weight in conjunction with CoolSculpting, you certainly want to do so before your Zeltiq procedure. Most people are still left with bothersome fat compartments after successful weight loss which will be amenable for CoolSculpting.

Drink more water

Since childhood your mum will tell drinking water is good for you. The benefits of taking in some H20 include preventing dehydration and keeping body fluids maintained. Out of these nutrients, your body uses water to help heal itself from damage or disease and to maintain youthfulness and help carry you into old age in health. As simple as it seems, there are amazing health and beauty benefits of drinking water. Let’s start:

WATER HELPS WITH WEIGHT LOSS

Picking water over a juice or soda water will help you drop some unwanted pounds. Plus, water makes you feel full, so you’re less likely to snack if you keep your body hydrated.

WATER KEEPS YOUR MUSCLES IN CHECK

Drinking water builds healthy muscle because it carries oxygen to the cells that build and strengthen muscle tissue. Water helps to make the muscles stronger – An imbalance of electrolytes leads to discomfort, such as muscle fatigue. Water helps maintain this proper balance needed to strengthen muscles.

WATER AS LUBRICANT

Water lubricates the cartilage and joints for healthy joint movement. Back pain and rheumatoid joint pain has been shown to be relieved with proper water intake. Picture a hydraulic lift, and you get a pretty good visionary pictures of how water supports the spine. Water is stored in the discs cores within the spine to create a hydraulic property to support spinal joints and help to support upper body weight.

Drinking water prevents constipation by providing the proper amount of fluids to the gastrointestinal tract. Drinking water maintains a balance of fluids in our body to aid in digestion, circulation, transfer and absorption of nutrients, maintaining a proper body temperature, and to create saliva.

WATER AS STRESS RELIEF

Water is a natural stress reliever. Even the sound of rushing waves or running water triggers a soothing response in the body and lowers stress.

WATER AS BRAIN BOOSTER

Water boosts mood and brain power. It is estimated that the brain makes up only about 1/50 of the entire weight of the body, but uses 1/20 of the blood supply. Drinking water helps you think clearly to learn as it increases cognitive function because it helps to deliver the oxygen the brain needs. Studies have shown that drinking 8 to 10 cups of water a day improves brain performance by as much as 30 percent. Additionally, drinking water supports proper nerve function, making it easier for the brain and the nervous system to communicate.

WATER KEEPS WRINKLES AWAY

Drinking a bottle of water a day won’t erase wrinkles, but by keeping your skin hydrated it’s less likely to dry out and sag. Water also helps bring out the natural glow in your skin, which means a healthier complexion.

The good news is you don’t have to drink bottles upon bottles of water everyday. A lot of the food you consume, especially fruits and vegetables, are a good source of water too.

WATER AS DETOX

Water helps to lessen the burden on your kidneys and liver to flush out toxins and other waste products, like uric and lactic acid, from your body

BEFORE WE ENDS

Hydrating your skin from the inside out isn’t an excuse to skip topical moisturizers. After all, the water you drink may not affect your outermost layers of skin, the ones that get dried out from skin cleansers, says Few. Moisturizing your skin both internally and externally is a critical combination for healthy, beautiful skin.

Sunscreen SPF? Which on is the BEST?

We all know the importance of wearing sunscreen, but which SPF is best? A walk through the sunscreen aisle reveals dozens of options, with varying SPFs. The highest SPF protect is 100, but does that make it the best? It’s just one of the many questions consumers have when it comes to the dizzying array of sunscreens. Check out these frequently asked questions to learn more.

WHAT DOES SPF MEASURE?

SPF, or sun protection factor, measures the product’s ability to block the sun’s UVB rays. Those rays can turn your skin into a fiery-red hide. It does not take into account UVA rays, which can damage skin and lead to certain kinds of cancer.

DOES SPF 100 OFFER THE BEST PROTECTION?

People assume the higher the SPF, the better the protection. Sunscreen with SPF 50 offers twice the protection of SPF 25, right? Wrong. Sunscreen with SPF 15 blocks 94 percent of the sun’s UVB rays. SPF 30 blocks 97 percent, SPF 50 blocks 98 percent and SPF 100 blocks 99 percent. Yes, SPF 100 offers the highest protection, but it’s not significantly more than its double-digit competitors. Plus, doctors fear consumers who buy products with SPF 100 apply it less, making it less effective than other options. No matter what the SPF, you should apply sunscreen every two hours.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR?

Rather than focusing on the SPF, look for a broad spectrum sunscreen. These will protect against both UVA and UVB rays, offering full protection.

Whether it is a day at the pool, or an afternoon walk in the park, make sure that you are arming yourself with sun protection so that you can enjoy many sunny days ahead.
