RECLAIM YOUR BODY WITH A COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT with Long Island's Premier Master Provider at VITRA aesthetics clinic
Address problem areas with a CoolSculpting treatment performed by a professionally trained Coolsculpting Provider at VITRA Aesthetics. CoolSculpting an innovative way to get rid of fat from problem areas using a technique of controlled cooling.
Genetics play a large part in your basic body shape as they determine how the number of fat cells will be distributed in your body. It is also important to note that the number of fat cells in your body does not change, only the size of the fat cell change.
Fat cells are designed to store surplus energy for our body’s future use. If we eat more than we need, the surplus food is converted to fatty substances called lipids. The lipids are then stored inside the fat cells and if this happens repeatedly, the fat cells will bloat up with lipid material and become thicker. The complete opposite happens if we don’t eat enough or when we exercise more. The cells then give up their stored surplus lipid and become smaller meaning our fat tissue becomes leaner.
Weight control and exercise can only change the size of each fat cell but not the number of cells in your body. Essentially, this means your overall body shape remains the same, even with rigorous diet and exercise, leaving your individual problems areas proportionately bigger (perhaps upper arm, back or inner thigh). The only way to change your shape is to remove fat cells from the affected areas to reduce their numbers. There are only two options to do this — liposuction surgery or by lipolysis, another word for cell dissolving.
AN ALTERNATIVE TO LIPOSUCTION
Invasive procedures with their associated health risks are not for everyone. CoolSculpting at VITRA on Long Island is a non-invasive procedure that works by delivering controlled cooling to gently target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen). Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these frozen cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
