You may or may not have heard about CoolSculpting®. You might have friends or family members in the Westmont, IL area who have had the procedure performed. You notice the results, but you are a little skeptical because although it worked for your friends and family, you wonder if it is going to work for you. Before deciding whether or not this treatment is the right choice for you, it’s a good idea to get a little bit of information on the history of this revolutionary procedure.

The history of CoolSculpting® goes back some years ago. It was then that scientists at Harvard University observed that children who were patients at the hospital and who constantly consumed popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. At first, the scientists were puzzled. Was there something in the popsicle that was having a negative effect on the children? Did the children have a disease that was affecting them in this way? All of this led to further research.

What the scientists found was amazing. They found that because the children were holding their popsicles on the same side of their face, they were freezing their fat cells. The result was that small pockets of fat cells were being eliminated from their body. This gave way to the amazing discovery that cold can target fat cells. But it wasn’t just that cold targeted fat cells; it was that cold could target fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or the surrounding tissue. This gave birth to the science that is behind the technology in CoolSculpting®.

CoolSculpting® is an amazing procedure that we have available at our office in Westmont, IL. It can be used to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Its safety has been proven both by the FDA and by clinical studies. Tens of thousands of individuals have had the procedure performed, and their results attest to the procedure’s safety. The CoolSculpting® procedure is designed to be precise yet gentle. It targets the fat cells that sit right underneath the skin. These fat cells are frozen, and then they die. When your fat cells die, any fat deposits they have inside of them are removed from your body via your lymphatic system. You are eventually left with a more sculpted appearance.

CoolSculpting® is a powerful tool. It has helped many people get their life on track, and it can help you to target and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat.
