Your tendency to develop fat, and where it collects on your body, are largely the product of genetics. Hereditary fat deposits can stubbornly resist healthy eating and regular exercise. In the past, liposuction, a more invasive fat removal procedure, was the only effective spot reduction technique. Today, men and women in the Bend, OR area have the option of noninvasive, nonsurgical targeted fat reduction with CoolSculpting at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center.
The CoolSculpting concept
Your body has a layer of subcutaneous fat, just beneath the skin. It helps to regulate body temperature and cushion internal organs. When calorie intake exceeds usage, the body stores the excess in fat cells in this layer. CoolSculpting selectively chills fat cells to a temperature that freezes lipids (the oily content), without harm to skin or other organs which are comprised primarily of water. As crystallized fat cells are destroyed, they are eliminated by the body’s natural processes.
EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center has an extensive array of CoolSculpting equipment, with applicators to treat most areas of the body.
