Up until recently, if someone wanted to get rid of troublesome love handles or lose their double chin, they only had one truly effective fix in the form of surgical liposuction. Luckily, this is no longer the case with the advent of many high-tech fat fixers in recent years including the wildly talked about cold play of CoolSculpting.
The question is: Can you really ice your way to a slimmer body? Scientists at Harvard University seem to think so.
Indeed, years ago, scientists at Harvard University noticed a phenomenon that revolutionized fat reduction as we knew it. They observed that in some children who ate a lot of ice pops, fat degradation in their cheeks led to the formation of dimples. It was not long before the concept of cryolipolysis was introduced. It was defined as the targeted destruction of fat cells through cold temperatures. This principle is the foundation of CoolSculpting- a non-surgical and non-invasive fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to near 4° Celsius to eliminate stubborn fat.
The science is proven, the technology is proven and cryolipolysis really works when it comes to removing fat cells from localized pockets. The trick to getting the perfect body is that like most cosmetic corrective procedures, CoolSculpting is not cheap with the price for the treatments ranging from $700-$3000.
This is probably why many people are in the market for a DIY approach to fat reduction by cryolipolysis.
About DIY CoolSculpting
Here is the deal: When you go to a clinic for CoolSculpting, what happens is that controlled cooling is delivered to a treatment area via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat. The cold injures the fat cells and over time, the cells die and are eliminated by the body’s natural processes. This is a treatment that can be replicated at home thus avoiding large overheads associated with medical staff treating people. One way to do this is through the use of a LipoBelt.
What is a LipoBelt?
By definition, a LipoBelt is an adjustable body contouring system that uses advanced cold technology for CoolSculpting at home. The technology is FDA approved for fat reduction and you can use it in the privacy of your own home. The belt uses special cold packs to deliver controlled cooling to fat cells thereby eliminating them. In the weeks following the treatment, your body works to remove these treated cells by way of its natural processes for the elimination of dead cells. The benefits of the LipoBelt for CoolSculpting at home are multiple. For instance:
- You can expect a noticeable difference in your appearance in 3 to 10 weeks
- You can do the treatment in the comfort of your home
- The LipoBelt costs a fraction of the price for CoolSculpting procedures done by doctors in clinics
- It is 100% natural and involves no needles, pills or scars
- The belt is also highly effective against cellulite
- The procedure has no known long-term side effects
