Beverly Hills, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/16/2014 -- CoolSculpting® uses an innovative cooling process to destroy unwanted fat cells and allow natural, biological processes to rid the body of the remnants. This patented, FDA-approved procedure relies on research showing that fat cells beneath the skin are unusually vulnerable to freezing temperatures. CoolSculpting focuses on these cells and leaves the surrounding tissue unharmed. This stands in stark contrast to many other approaches, such as liposuction.
“Once the fat cells are frozen, they die,” says Dr. Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “CoolSculpting results are not immediate but they can be significant. Over the course of a few weeks, the cells undergo a progression known as apoptosis and begin shrinking. Eventually these cells die and get flushed out of the body. As a result, the layer of fat beneath the skin becomes thinner and the patient loses weight and gains a more attractive contour.”
The CoolSculpting procedure is also recognized for having fewer complications than surgical options such as liposuction and requires little to no post-treatment downtime. Once the treatment area is chosen a hand piece uses suction to bunch up that portion of flesh and place it between two cooling panels. The patient feels only a little pressure as the device cools the targeted area.
CoolSculpting treatments typically last one hour and during this time, patients are free to read, use their phones or even watch movies on an iPad. Results can become noticeable in as little as three weeks; after two months, the most dramatic results are usually evident. By then, the fat cells have been completely eliminated from the body.
"I practice evidence-based medicine," says Dr. Ourian, “and Zeltiq has conducted multiple studies that indicate CoolSculpting treatments show significant results. I believe that this technology will benefit my patients.”
