Zeltiq Coolsculpting is a new and innovative way to: Shrink fat. Cut the fat in as little as one hour. Use non-invasive and relatively painless methods to accomplish this. What’s so cool about Zeltiq Coolsculpting? Here are some benefits: No Heat – pure, gentle cooling methods are used to sculpt out fat without any damage to the fat tissues. No Cuts – means that there’s no downtime to get back to everyday activities, despite seeing dramatic results in as little as four to eight weeks. No cuts also mean no scars. No Anesthesia Used – and no pain is experienced during the procedure, given that no incisions are made. Learn more about how it works below. Zeltiq Coolsculpting is furthermore approved by the Federal and Drug Administration, or FDA in targeted areas of the body. Here’s How Zeltiq Coolsculpting Works: The technology draws on the natural makeup of how our inner metabolic processes work. By applying cooling methods to dedicated areas of the body, a promotion of fat burning is set into motion. Fat cells are eradicated through the procedure over time. One fun fact is that the procedure was born from Harvard Scientists’ observation of children eating popsicles. The reaction of the skin would be so the product was born. For pinchable areas of fat, a device consisting of two large cooling sheets is applied to the targeted fatty layer. Patients will feel a cooling sensation, but nothing painful. Many patients carry on conversations, read, or even catch a quick snooze during Zeltiq Coolsculpting. It’s that painless. Once treatment is complete, regular activities can be resumed right away. Repeat treatments can be used to get more fat reduction serially. Popular areas to conduct Zeltiq Coolsculpting include the midcore or abdomen, as we all know this is where stubborn fat exists. Flanks, which are otherwise called love handles is also a common target area for the new and effective technique. Women can also achieve slender looking thighs easily – and without breaking a sweat. Top Candidates for Zeltiq Coolsculpting The fat burning treatment is ideal for individuals who have prominent fat layers that are stubborn and make feeling confident a chore. Other advantages include: Fit into clothes comfortably and confidently. Watch how relationships in work and personal life soar. Feel like you again after kids, mid-age, or after gaining a few pounds for instance. Zeltiq Coolsculpting ultimately keeps you cool under the pressure to shed fat fast.…

Body Fat-Belly Fat

What is Belly Fat from? Stress, over availability of fatty foods and lack of sleep or exercise can all contribute to the development of belly fat, a type of body fat concentrated on the abdomen and frustrating to eliminate. For many, stomach fat is the “stubborn” fat that even a good diet and exercise can’t remove. Some face the issue later in life when the metabolism suddenly slows and some face it sooner, when a stressful lifestyle contributes to a physical change in the body. Is Belly Fat Dangerous? Belly fat can be an indication of a dangerous underlying condition that stores fat around the vital organs (visceral fat) when the normal fat cells are full and stretched to the max. Even if a patient is not experiencing this visceral fat buildup, it can be aesthetically displeasing to have an excess of stomach fat, especially for individuals who lead an otherwise active and fit lifestyle.  Visceral fat is dangerous as it lead to insulin resistance and many diseases such as diabetes and high cholesterol.  This type of body fat is critical to start losing. How Do We Lose Belly Fat? It depends on the belly fat that you have.  Internal belly fat that is not pinchable, like a beer belly, can only be reduced with diet and exercise.  Subcutaneous or pinchable belly fat has several options for reduction and removal.  Beleza Medspa has several Weight Loss Diets to help you. SmartLipo Liposuction One option for dealing with this excess in stomach fat is Smart Lipo, which utilizes a local anesthetic and a light sedative to eliminate the chance of discomfort during surgery but allows the patient to remain awake during the surgery and recover in the comfort of his or her own home.  Smart Lipo is considered by many to be a better option than traditional liposuction because it not only removes fat, but allows for body contouring too. The downtime is also very favorable; many patients get the surgery on Friday afternoon and return to work the following Monday. For patients of traditional liposuction, the time out can be much more extensive. Coolsculpting With very few non-invasive options, patients with stomach fat who don’t want to “go under the knife” are pretty limited. The best option for dealing with stubborn stomach fat without incisions, stitches or downtime is Coolsculpting, a fat freezing technology that freezes fat cells, causing them to die. After the treatment and for the next 8-12 months, you body naturally processes the dead cells, leading to a reduction in fat in the treated area. Stomach fat is treatable and there is no need to live with it, regardless of whether or not it is affecting your health. Both Smart Lipo and Coolsculpting allow us to help you get your ideal shape by strategically eliminating fat in undesirable areas. Plus, patients often find themselves more motivated to adopt a healthier lifestyle after an investment in their appearance, only adding to the success of the surgery.…
