What Is the Best Fat-Reducing Treatment of the Year?

CoolSculpting-Before-and-AfterAre you one of 51% of all women who have the goal of losing excess fat this year? You have dieted, exercised, and yet you have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to remove. If you are ready for a non-invasive procedure that eliminates fat without surgery, consider CoolSculpting, named NewBeauty Magazine’s “Best Fat-Reducing Treatment” for the second year in a row in the magazine’s annual Beauty Choice Award edition.

The patented procedure, developed by Harvard scientists, uses a targeted cooling process that gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells without harming surrounding tissue. The FDA has cleared the procedure for the abdomen, flank, and thighs. ESANA Plastic Surgery Center and Medspa is the only location in the New Haven area that also treats the outer thighs. “One of the reasons we’ve had great success with this treatment is the ‘hush-hush’ aspect of it. Nobody has to know you’ve done anything if there’s no need to take time off work to recover or even miss one session at the gym. A lot of our patients love the fact that it can be done 100% under-the-radar,” says ESANA’s Dr. Davila.

On the day of treatment, a specially designed cooling panel is applied to target areas of unwanted fat. After a few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold, which soon dissipates. For the rest of the session (60 minutes) the person may work on a laptop, read, or relax while seated comfortably or lying down. Afterwards, the individual can return to work or other normal activity since minor redness, tingling, numbness, or bruising is temporary.

In the next few weeks, the fat cells are naturally eliminated. Most people see dramatic results within 2-3 months after treatment, while some see results begin as early as three weeks after a session. As clothes fit better, many patients report feeling more comfortable with their body shape and report a boost in self confidence. Not surprisingly, physicians report a 95% satisfaction rate. Nearly 1.5 million CoolSculpting body contouring treatments have been performed in over 70 countries around the world.

“We test thousands of products a year at NewBeauty and work closely with an expert advisory board who really knows what stands out above the rest, from standby classics to new innovations,” says Yolanda Yoh Bucher, editor-in-chief of NewBeauty, the definitive authority on all things beauty. “Winners were judged on what each product actually delivers, in order to create a truly informative — and effective — experience for our readers.”
