COOLSCULPTING® by zeltiq in Parker, CO
The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING® WORK?
CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq is a safe non-invasive treatment offered at Cara Mia Day Spa in Meridian, Aurora, Castle Rock & Parker, CO, for fat removal and body contouring. CoolSculpting® is an FDA approved device that uses a technology called cryolipolysis to freeze targeted fat cells. Studies have shown 20-25% of the targeted fat cells die in a natural way and dissolve over the course of several weeks.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT AND HOW IS IT REMOVED?
The cooling of the fat cells causes them to die a natural cell death (called apoptosis) as opposed to other methods which cause a traumatic death to the cell (necrosis). As this is a natural process, the cells slowly get broken down and reabsorbed. This reabsorption process is very similar to dietary fat broken down by the liver.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS after the fat freezing procedure?
A majority of patients will see results in the first eight weeks. It is important to know, as this is using a natural body process, results will be obtained gradually over 2-4 months.
HOW LONG WILL THE COOLSCULPTING® RESULTS LAST?
Fat loss of the cell are permanent, fat cells do not regenerate.
WHEN CAN I DO ANOTHER TREATMENT?
If after your consultation it is determined you may need more than one treatment to achieve the desired result, a second treatment can be done as early as four weeks apart.
