Cosmetic surgery may have had its haters for a while, and it may have been stigmatised over the years, but this has slowly changed, and nowadays it’s not unusual to know one or two people in your general social circle who have had something done, be it facially or to their body. This is no bad thing, if you’re not happy with your appearance, it’s causing you a lack of self-esteem, and you’re doing it for the right reasons, in a healthy way, then what’s to stop you?
One particularly popular new kid on the block in the cosmetic surgery world is a procedure called CoolSculpting.
This might sound like a rather painful procedure, but it’s totally the opposite, and is actually non-invasive, without needing to resort to a surgeon’s knife.
CoolSculpting is a great option for people who find that no matter how much they eat healthily and hit the gym, they can’t get rid of stubborn areas of fat, and these areas lead to low self-esteem and not liking what they see in the mirror. It’s worth pointing out that this isn’t an option to replace liposuction or for those with large amounts of fat to loose, however for small amounts, it could be a fantastic answer.
Also known in the cosmetic world as ‘fat freezing’, this procedure basically does what it says on the tin, it works to lower temperatures. You might not understand how this can be beneficial to weight loss, but bear with it!
Research has shown that when you expose fat cells to low temperature, they can be destroyed and processed in the same way your body would process fat that you eat, i.e. it is gotten rid of in natural ways. Now, CoolSculpting lowers the temperature of the fat cells, but it helps to turn the fat to a solid, before your body takes over the process and does its magic. This means CoolSculpting is a more natural form of cosmetic surgery, without a knife. I guess you could call it cosmetic treatment, rather than surgery!
This is a treatment which works especially well around certain areas of the body, i.e. love handles, fat on the arms, back, thighs, and around the waist.
We all know how being self-conscious about an area of your body can severely impact on your self-esteem. Life is too short to be feeling that way, which is why so many people are turning towards this non-invasive form of cosmetic treatment.
