As recently seen on The Dr. Oz Show, Coolsculpting basically uses the cold to freeze fat off. Coolsculpting is based on cryolipolysis, in which fat is brought to a near freezing point, causing fat to crystallize and eventually die. According to Los Angeles CoolSculpting surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, "We have the CoolSculpting by Zeltiq, which we're quite happy with the device and it's results. We use it to primarily treat the abdomen, love handles, bra fat area and the arms."


The human back is overlaid with several different types of muscles: extensor, flexor and oblique, which are large and some may overlap. The reason why back fat occurs is as we age, muscles and skin begin to sag and the pockets in between the muscles begin to fill up with fat which then begins to bulge out. As we all know, exercise cannot reduce fat in one specific spot so previously the only option to remove back fat was through liposuction, which had to be performed carefully as the fat was surrounded by muscle and tissue and that area is prone to scarring.


Coolsculpting by Zeltiq offers patients a non-invasive option that negates any potential of scarring and since it's non-surgical, only the fat is being treated without damage to any surrounding tissue, which makes it ideal for areas such as back fat. The hand-piece is applied directly to the area that needs to be treated and the fat is essentially sucked into the device, after which it is cooled to near freezing.

According to Dr. Rox Anderson, one of the first to pioneer the development of cryolipolysis, the cold causes the fatty tissue to crystallize and ultimately, the cell dies. "The best analogy is a stick of butter, which has a lot of fat in it. If you leave it out at room temperature for a while, it spreads easily but when you first get it out of the refrigerator, it's pretty solid. What's going on with a stick of butter is that the fat molecules crystallize, they 'freeze' if you will at a much higher temperature than water does. In your body, fat is by far the richest lipid tissue and it undergoes the same transition," describes Dr. Anderson.


After the fat cell has crystallized and dies, the fat is slowly eliminated over the next few months through natural processes. One of the current limitations to Coolsculpting is the device size is pretty much how much fat it can treat in one session which means multiple treatments to treat large areas. However, it appears a solution may soon become available. "Zeltiq is coming out with larger applicators so that the indications will expand," states Dr. Stevens. Larger hand-pieces will benefit patients as it will take less time and larger areas can be treated in one treatment vs. several treatments to address the entire area.


The procedure takes about an hour and several treatments are recommended to get the best results. Since there is no anesthesia required and Coolsculpting is completely non-surgical, there is no downtime and patients can return to normal activities immediately after undergoing the treatment.  


Paired with regular exercise and a healthy diet, you'll be waving good-bye to your back fat in just a few months!

Fall Into Wellness

Along with CoolSculpting, here are a couple of ideas to help make the transition to autumn a little easier.

With the beginning of fall happening, many of us have started to feel the change in the weather. With the change in temperature, many people have allergies which kick up or even will begin getting sick. Here are a couple of ideas to help make the transition to autumn a little easier.
1. Close Your Windows. Although it may be tempting to get some fresh air, this may be one of the things that is triggering your allergies. Try your best to keep the inside of your house free from outside allergens to lessen your time spent stuffed up.
2. Take a Shower. After being outside, your clothes, shoes, and body will have particles which may contain your allergens. Leaving your shoes by the door and jumping in the shower to change out of your clothes will help get rid of those. You can also try using a eucalyptus shower disk to open up your sinuses. You can purchase them or make your own.
3. Drink More. Fluids will help keep you hydrated and can help to thin any mucus which may be in your nasal passages. If you drink things like tea it has an added benefit of steam to help clear any blockages, and if you use honey it can help soothe your throat from postnasal drip symptoms. Peppermint tea is also a good drink because it naturally soothes and has a fresh taste.
4. Get An Air Filter. If your allergies are impossible to escape, you may want to invest in a home air purifier. You can buy ones for single rooms from most retailers and many have special settings for allergens. Compare reviews online to find the one that will work best for you.
5. Take A Vacation. Although it would be impossible for most of us to take a vacation for the entire allergy season, taking a couple of days or weeks away can be beneficial. Find a location where your allergens are low or non-existent and have some fun for a few days.
Chiropractic care has not been scientifically shown to help alleviate allergies, however, there are many symptoms that allergy sufferers deal with. These include body aches and sore necks and backs, often caused by excessive sneezing. If you suffer from these, stop in and see how much a spinal adjustment can help you feel better. Ready to reinvent yourself this season? Maybe it is time to call ThinSculpting in Cary or Wake Forest to schedule your first consultation. The process is non-invasive and FDA cleared.
