Soaring Demand for Procedure That Freezes Off Holiday Fat [Video]
Is your New Year’s resolution to eat better and hit the gym so you can lose all the festive FAT you put on over the holidays?
Why starve and sweat when you can just FREEZE off the LBs?!
Yep, THOUSANDS of lazy, lumpy Americans are running (for the first time in their large lives) to try CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis. At a cost upwards of $750 per session, this non-invasive, in-office, procedure promises to remove 20-25% of fat — in targeted areas — such as the stomach or thighs.
Essentially, they slap a huge gel patch over your bulges and the sub zero temperatures freeze the fat, beneath the skin. Once the cells die, your body naturally flushes it out over the next few months. The painless procedure takes between one and several hours so, most people watch a movie or work while they wait for their fatsicle to freeze. The skin and muscle tissue are unaffected and, after three years, most patients find the fat has not returned.
If you continue to gain weight, however, fat will build up in OTHER places…enormous elbows anyone? So, yeah, you still have to eat healthy and work out after the procedure. Rip off. lol
And by the way, this procedure is for those looking to shed the pounds Santa brought…it’s NOT suitable for the obese.
Ya can’t melt Frosty the Snowman with only one match…n’ah mean?
