A strange phenomenon known as ‘popsicle panniculitis’ led to one of the greatest fat loss inventions of all time.
Kids who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks and two scientists at Harvard took note. They set out to test a theory that cold actually kills fat cells much faster than it can affect other types of body tissue. Their findings eventually gave rise to the invention of the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment – CoolSculpting.
“It will debulk areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise,” said Bernadette Lavoie, co-owner of North Country Massage & Medi Spa.
Clients are already lining up to try the innovative procedure at the Prince Albert Med Spa. It works by delivering controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The procedure requires no needles, surgery, or downtime.
“Fat cells freeze at a different temperature than the rest of your tissue cells. So, they are crystallized or frozen during the treatment and then they die. Over a short period of time your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells,” added co-owner Lindsey Rask.
Since the fat cells are gone for good, the results are permanent and can be seen in as little as three weeks. Maximum results are noticed within three months. Clients usually only need one or two treatment sessions and since the procedure requires no needles, surgery or downtime, Rask said, “Everyone will notice you’re more sculpted…but no one will know how you did it.”
“Anyone who has ever considered liposuction should get this done. In comparison, it is a less invasive and less expensive option that still leads to permanent results,” said Lavoie.
