Chill out cellulite

 Weight loss is, quite simply, a mathematical problem. If you eat more than you burn, you are going to gain weight. If you want to lose weight, the answer is a balanced diet and exercise – as simple as that. However, even once you have returned to your goal weight, there might still be pockets of fat that do not respond and stubbornly refuse to budge.

To address these areas the answer used to be invasive surgical procedures, with all the potential risks associated. However, Dr. Else Christoffersen at Cayman Doctors now offers a non-invasive procedure that promises to deliver noticeable results where diet and exercise may have failed.

CoolSculpting is a patented procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas using a patented cooling technology. It is a safe procedure cleared by the FDA that gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. This reduces bulges in treated areas of the body without harming surrounding tissue.

During the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat, leaving surface skin tissue unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a visible reduction in fat bulges.

The process works because subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. These fat cells, when exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, undergo a gradual reduction and cell death.

The procedure has several key benefits over invasive techniques. Patients can resume daily activities including work and exercise immediately following treatment, making it much more practical for those who are constantly on the go.

Patients can sit or lie down during the procedure and can read a book or even work on a laptop during the procedure, which is performed in a medical office under the supervision of a physician specialising in cosmetic procedures.

It is also safe and convenient, with treatment lasting one to two hours, so it can be squeezed into a lunch break without influencing the rest of your busy schedule.
