Adipose tissue is mainly made up of fat cells. There is a specialized function of these cells to accumulate fat. A person’s adipocyte count stabilizes between the ages of two and five and rarely fluctuates after that. Still, fat cells can swell or shrink in response to the quantity of fat being stored.
When subcutaneous fat is pushed to its breaking point, cellulite results. Cellulite most commonly appears on the buttocks, thighs and abdomen, where it is known as orange-peel skin.
Reducing Weight Does Not Reduce Fat Cell Count
In contrast to common belief, reducing fat does not equate to weight loss. The body’s fat cells do not fluctuate in response to weight growth or loss. The size of fat cells is what is ultimately altered. Fat cells enlarge as a person gains weight.
Reducing the body’s total amount of fat cells is essential to eliminate fat cells for good. Technological progress has allowed for the development of a non-invasive fat-reduction procedure. Known as CoolSculpting®, this technology utilizes controlled cooling to get rid of troublesome fat cells for good.
How Does CoolSculpting Eliminate Fat Cells Non-Invasively?
The fat cells beneath the skin are safely and effectively targeted by the Coolsculpting technique, which uses precisely controlled cooling (between four and seven degrees Celsius). Frozen fat cells die off within three days of treatment. After a month, your body will naturally metabolize the fat and eliminate these dead cells through the lymphatic system.
Body regions that react well to CoolSculpting include the double chin, upper arms, abdomen, back, buttocks and thighs.
The procedure involves applying a gel pad and applicator to the treated body region. Treatment lasts 30–35 minutes. You may feel a cold, dragging, tugging or slight pinching sensation during the first five to ten minutes. These symptoms usually subside as the region numbs.
Common side effects after treatment include transient redness, swelling, bruising, stiffness, tingling, stinging, soreness, aching or itching. These effects last only days. The third month following treatment shows the full results.
