Have You Heard of Coolsculpt?

coolsculptHere’s how it works in a nutshell: You have that bit of stubborn fat hanging on to your stomach and you want it gone. You don’t want to go through liposuction so you choose Coolsculpt instead. During the procedure, the device freezes the fat cells under the skin, which will then gradually drain away naturally. It typically takes around one hour and one of the best parts of this is that you can return to your normal routine right afterwards.

 A fun fact: It was actually invented by two Harvard doctors, who noticed that children who ate popsicles a lot had dimples because the cold killed the fat cells in their cheeks. 

It’s a safe, convenient and FDA approved and there are no scalpels or incisions. Side effects can be bruising on the skin or slight redness. It’s intended for people who already exercise and diet, but need to get rid of that last section of fat. It’s been approved to be used on the stomach, love handles and the thighs. It’s a great way to help you get that thigh gap everyone wants, no photoshop needed.

With New Year’s coming up, it’ll be time to get that little black dress out of the closet and party with friends and co-workers. Why not give yourself an early present and try CoolSculpt for yourself; they’ll never have to know. When they ask what your secret just smile your Mona Lisa smile and tell them dedication and hard work. After all, you worked hard for the body that CoolSculpt just revealed. Then you can look just as great on the outside that you feel on the inside.
