CoolSculpting® is one of the most popular body contouring procedures in Austin. But it can come with unexpected and unwanted results… Read on to find out why you shouldn’t freeze fat.
It is important to know that fat cells DO NOT replicate. Once fat cells have been killed/removed, your body will not produce more, even to accommodate future weight gain. Sounds good, right? But what happens if you do end up gaining weight?
Should an individual gain weight (added body fat), that fat will need to deposit somewhere and will look for available cells. Since there are no more fat cells in the area that had CoolScultping, the fat will deposit in other closely available cells which can create a disproportionate look or what individuals refer to as “divets, shelves, or enlarged fat pads” on their bodies and uneven skin tone.
CoolSculpting® fat freezing technology kills fat cells which are then naturally removed (eliminated) by your body via your liver in 2-6 months. A certified technician or doctor will place an applicator over the desired area for treatment. The temperature inside the applicator’s vacuum will drop, thus commencing the cell freezing killing process (pictured below).
Zerona on the otherhand, use low-level laser therapy (LLLT) externally to effectively stimulate and collapse fat cells (pictured below). The result is that fat cells within adipose tissue are shrunk instead of killed, therefore keeping the integrity of the bodily tissue without disrupting the fat cell’s overall health and function. The fat removed will escape through the lymphatic system, leaving the fat cells intact and able to perform the important functions they are used for every day.
