Cryolipolysis typically called Fat Freezing or CoolSculpting ™ “is a medical treatment used to destroy fat cells. Its principle relies on controlled cooling to near sub-zero temperatures for non-invasive localized reduction of fat deposits in order to reshape body contours. The exposure to cooling is set so that it causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin.

A session takes less than an hour and does not require anesthesia. With a single treatment subjects had a 20% reduction after two months and 25% reduction at six months in the fat layer as assessed by ultrasound.” Source

Here’s the “CBS This Morning” show raving about the procedure

Does CoolSculpting work?

Realself.com is an online community built around sharing information about cosmetic surgery, dermatology, dentistry, and other elective treatments. CoolSculpting currently has a respectable 72% “worth it rating”. There’s over 1300 reviews, as well as before and after pictures on the Realself website that you should check out if you’re interested in having this done. www.realself.com/coolsculpting-by-zeltiq

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

According to Realself.com the price for each CoolSculpting session ranges from $675-$2700 with an average price of $1975. Source

How many CoolSculpting sessions will you need to see results?

Most people report needing 2 sessions to get the results they want, but it really depends on your body, and how much fat you need to freeze off.

An easy, somewhat reasonably priced, non-invasive medical procedure that freezes away fat… sounds pretty good so far, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately there’s some side effects

The procedure is FDA approved, but as you might expect there’s some side effects. If you listen to the people trying to sell you on CoolSculpting, they’ll tell you there’s some discomfort, numbness, possibly bruising that goes away in a short time.

But recently a doctor warned that CoolSculpting could damage your liver…

“Dr Roberto Viel, a cosmetic surgeon from the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery, said of the treatment: ‘The question is: will the body be able to wash out all the destroyed fat?

‘Can the body cope with absorbing the damaged fat, metabolising and eliminating it with the urine?

‘If we are talking about a large amount of destroyed fat, then the liver could become overloaded and body could struggle, causing lethargy.”

‘I wouldn’t advise someone with liver problems to have a treatment like this.” Credit: Daily Mail

So if you have a bad liver, you should probably avoid CoolSculpting and stick to traditional methods for losing weight.

Scientists have been scouring the world in recent decades for all manner of miracle plants that can help people slim down. As the market for weight-loss products and supplements has grown to a multi-billion-dollar industry, they’ve looked at dandelions, coffee and nuts, among other things. They’ve been cultivating an edible succulent called the caralluma fimbriata chewed by tribesmen in rural India to control their hunger during a day’s hunt. And they have been trying to isolate and extract whatever it is in an African plant called hoodia, which looks like a spikey pickle, that tricks you into feeling full even if you haven’t eaten a bite.

But none of these has been more promising in early studies than a traditional Chinese medicine known as thunder god vine.
