Fat Freezing Treatment Benefits
The fat freezing effect on the body has been analyzed and studied for long time. Some specialists like Tim Ferris, the author of the book The Four Hour Body, describes the concept of burning brown fat tissue and consequently how the body reacts by exposing it to low temperatures. According to him ” the potential of fat burning can be increased by 300% by adding ice therapy to a healthy diet and exercise.”
This statement is confirmed by an astronaut from NASA for ABC: “In studying the effects of temperature on astronauts, where the people’s metabolism boost by 20% in environments as mild as 15 °C (60 °F).” “90 grams of brown fat tissue can release 400 – 500 calories a day, which is equivalent to a one-hour intensive workout.” After all, yes the fat freezing treatment burns fat effectively.
Fat Freezing at Home and DIY Coolsculpting
Fat freezing at home is not the same FDA approved treatment developed by Zeltiq, however manages the same concept of Cryolipolysis. This kind of treatment works because the fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures than regular skin and muscle tissues.
Fat cells can be destroyed by cold temperatures before any damage is done to skin cells. By understanding the general process of CoolSculpting, you can understand better how more affordable it is the fat freezing at home treatment than CoolSculpting sessions.
It’s important to note these DIY Coolsculpting solutions are not FDA approved treatment and one should still consult a licensed doctor before beginning any form of medical treatment.
*People who use beta-blockers, have peripheral vascular disease with a lower blood flow, peripheral neuropathy, are smokers or diabetics, should be careful with the treatment.
