CoolSculpting, which works through a process known as Cryoliposis, is a result of the advancements in technology and helps in safe and effective removal of fat cells from targeted area.
In fact, CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves controlled cooling to reduce unwanted fat cells that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise, without damaging the surrounding tissues.
The concept of extreme cold affecting fat cells was noticed by Harvard University scientists in the 1970s. They observed that a group of children who ate popsicles on a frequent basis developed dimples (fat loss) in their cheeks.
This finding was analysed over years by the scientists who studied the process of cryolipolysis that eventually led to the development of the CoolSculpting machine.
CoolSculpting involves the application of a proprietary gel on the targeted area using a control device to freeze and wipe out the fatty cells. The area to be treated is pinched between the two panels of the applicator. The temperature of that area gradually lowers down to an extent that causes the fat cells to crystallize and die.
Later, the dead cells are naturally eliminated from the body. Each session lasts for around an hour and results in approximately 20 percent fat reduction in the treated area.
CoolSculpting is a relatively costly procedure as compared to Liposuction and other invasive treatments. The price of the treatment depends on the number of target areas and the number of treatments required. The procedure costs about 75% less than Liposuction.
Unlike liposuction and gastric bypass surgery, CoolSculpting is a totally non-invasive procedure and does not require any prolonged recovery time. This helps the patient return to his normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is finished.
The process is FDA-approved which means that it has passed various clinical tests and trials by the Food and Drug Administration. The procedure does not involve any medications and drugs thereby reducing the chances of any risk.
Unlike diet and exercise in which the fat cells reduce in size but remain in the body, CoolSculpting removes the dead fat cells permanently from the body. Not only the procedure is quick but also quite effective. On an average, patients experience about 20 percent fat reduction in the treated areas within 2-3 weeks.
As the treatment destroys the dead cells permanently, the results last for quite a long time.

Naomi Watts is getting candid about the pressure to look good in Hollywood.
The 47-year-old actress admits in a new interview with NewBeauty magazine that she has definitely considered Botox — and is, in fact, still undecided at times — though she hasn’t ever undergone the treatment.
“Personally, I feel for me it’s tough to do Botox — but it’s also tough not to!” she says. “Sometimes, I think I need the help. Whatever anyone else chooses is fine with me, no judgment.”
But Watts points out that Botox would definitely affect her acting career.
“Of course, I want to look the best I can, but I am playing characters that should match my age, and the women and the material that I am interested in are usually going through something,” she explains. “I have to be able to live in my face and tell the story of the character I’ve taken on. But… I’ll never say never.”
However, Watts is far from vain. The Allegiant star says that despite her glamorous red carpet appearances, she’s “not very good” at actually doing her own hair or makeup. She also admits to having some insecurities when it comes to inheriting her mother’s good looks.
“My mother was not very good at giving beauty tips, but she was — and still is — a striking beauty,” Watts says about her mom, former costume and set designer Myfanwy Edwards. “I was always very aware of her beauty, but I never felt as beautiful as her, or that I could ever be that beautiful.”

Khloe Kardashian has gone through quite the transformation over the past six months. Maybe you thought her face might be looking a little different simply due to clever make-up artistry, there is another explanation for why the 31-year-old’s appearance has changed… Because it’s now been revealed that Khloe is the new face of Kybella – an injectable product that promises to eliminate a double chin. According to XOVain, the star is a big fan of Kybella Injection, which works by using deoxycholic acid to destroy fat cells under the chin.
Professor Jeffrey Kenkel, a plastic surgeon familiar with the effects of the drug, said: ‘Kybella is identical to a deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the body to absorb fat.
Kybella takes advantage of that fat-destroying activity to help eliminate the fat below the chin.
‘This provides a new option to consider for those who are not ready for a surgical fix, but are looking for an answer as to how to get rid of fat beneath the chin.’

Many media historians would say that one of the deciding factor of John F. Kennedy’s win against Richard Nixon for the presidency was his good looks. It was the dawn of televised debates and voters certainly placed their faith on the candidate, who not only was intelligent, but was easy on the eyes.
Fast forward to the age of over exposure, and right now, there isn’t a day that goes by when we are bombarded by stories, photos and videos of candidates. And with everything in high definition, let’s face it, ALL of them could use a little appearance rejuvenation that cold possible make or break their candidacy.
Donald Trump – Mr. Trump could use Botox, or rather, “Brotox,” to get rid of his crow’s feet. Being outdoors constantly has also done some damage to his skin, and and IPL Photofacial treatment will do the trick in resurfacing his skin. He, too, has a double chin, and the CoolSculpting Coolmini can diminish that jowl and give him a more refreshed, youthful and chiseled appearance.
Hillary Clinton – Could use some skin rejuvenation: Botox to smooth away frown lines, ClearLift Laser to firm and tighten skin under the eye to help diminish under-eye bags, which will refresh her overall appearance. A combination of CoolSculpting CoolMini action can get rid of Ms. Clinton’s double chin appearance, plus Pixel RF to tighten chin and neck area would give her a more youthful appearance.
We hear voters argue and debate over and over again, but no one really has given attention to the importance of their looks. After all, whoever wins will be the face of the most powerful nation in the world! And Americans want to make sure that our future president can compete with Canada’s and Mexico’s attractive presidents, too.
In the last six weeks, Kim Kardashian gave birth, celebrated the holidays, and—she announced today on Twitter—lost an impressive 30 pounds of her 70-pound post-baby weight goal. Exercise was part of it, the other part was the same trendy diet your parents used back in the day: The low-carb, Atkins diet:
The Atkins diet, also known as the Atkins nutritional approach, is a low-carbohydrate diet promoted by Robert Atkins and inspired by a research paper he read in The Journal of the American Medical Association. The paper entitled “Weight Reduction” was published by Alfred W. Pennington in 1958. The Atkins diet lead to 0.1% to 2.9% more weight loss at one year compared to a control group which received behavioral counselling.
You’ll lose up to 15 pounds within two weeks, and eat lots of fatty foods.
The body is an engine; carbs are the gas that makes it go. Limiting carbs makes the body turn to an alternative fuel – stored fat. So sugars and “simple starches” like potatoes, white bread, and rice are all but squeezed out; protein and fat like chicken, meat, and eggs are embraced. Fat is burned; pounds come off.
How does Atkins Diet work?
You go through four “phases,” starting with very few carbs and eating progressively more until you get to your desired weight. Keeping carbs at bay isn’t as simple as saying No to sugar and baked potatoes. You’ll keep acceptable foods lists handy and polish your arithmetic skills. In phase 1, for example, you’re allowed 20 grams a day of “net carbs” (pull out the food list), 12 to 15 of them from “foundation vegetables” (pull out another list) high in fiber. But as for fat, you don’t even have to trim it off your steak.
The Atkins 40 Plan is a new entry point to the diet geared toward those who want to lose 40 pounds or less.
How much does it cost?
Meat and fresh veggies are pricier than most processed and fast foods. How much more you’ll spend will depend largely on your choices of protein sources. Are you buying mostly ground beef or springing for veal? Chicken or turkey? Chuck vs. New York strip? Buying in season should keep the veggie tab reasonable.
“The New Atkins for a New You,” an essential guide, is $16. There’s also a workbook for $12. “New Atkins Made Easy,” the most updated version of the Atkins book, is $10.
Will you lose weight?
Atkins and other low-carb diets have been studied longer and harder than most other approaches, and Atkins does appear to be moderately successful, especially in the first couple of weeks. That’s only part of the story, however.
Much of the initial loss is water, say experts, because of the diet’s diuretic effect. That’s true of many other diets, too, and is one of the reasons researchers don’t judge diets based on a few weeks of results. In diet studies, long-term generally starts at two years. Here’s what several key studies had to say about Atkins and other low-carb diets:
- Over short periods, Atkins results vary. In one study, published in 2006 in the British Medical Journal, Atkins dieters lost an average of 10 pounds in the first four weeks while those on meal-replacement (Slim Fast), caloric-restriction (Weight Watchers), and low-fat (Rosemary Conley’s Eat Yourself Slim book) diets lost 6 to 7 pounds. At the one-month point and thereafter, however, there were no significant differences in weight loss among the groups.

We are pleased to announce the completion of Allergan acquisition of Anterios Inc., a privately-held biopharmaceutical company focused on developing topical botulinum toxin-based prescription products for medical dermatology and aesthetic medicine.
Allergan Inks $90 Million Deal for Anterios developers
Allergan says deal gives it access to new a drug delivery system
Allergan PLC, which last year agreed to merge with Pfizer Inc., on Thursday said it will buy clinical-stage pharmaceutical company Anterios Inc.
Under the terms of the deal, Allergan will pay Anterios $90 million up front, plus milestone payments.
Anterios is the developer of NDS, a technology that delivers neurotoxins through the skin instead of through injection. Allergan is perhaps best known as the maker of Botox, a neurotoxin with both cosmetic and therapeutic variations used to treat everything from wrinkles to osteoarthritis.
In a news release, Allergan Executive Vice President David Nicholson said the deal allows Allergan to advance “a new delivery system and formulations that are appealing to both patients and physicians.”
Additionally, Allergan has acquired the rights to Anterios’ Phase 2 program ANT-1207, a botulinum toxin topical lotion, for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, acne, and crow’s feet lines.
Allergan in November agreed to a more than $150 billion tie-up with Pfizer, a historic merger that would create the world’s biggest drugmaker. The combined company will have top-selling products including Pfizer’s Prevnar pneumonia vaccine and Allergan’s Botox, and an industry-topping R&D budget.
With Winter comes the many joys of the season: snowflakes, hot chocolate, roaring fires, and dry, scaly skin. Whether you’re turning up the heat or braving the wind and cold, do more to help protect your skin than throwing on a cute hat and this year’s trendy coat. Suddenly Slimmer Day and Med Spa makes it easier to love your skin with these winter-proof tips:
Be a Bathing Beauty
Plan to take extra steps to help keep your skin from becoming dry and itchy after you bathe since the low humidity of winter won’t do your skin any favors. Keep the water lukewarm and stick to short baths: hot water might help soothe your muscles, but soaking in it for long periods of time will definitely take the natural oils right out of your already dry, irritated skin. You’ll also want to look for bath oils containing mineral oil (but without detergents, which strip your skin of natural protective oils) to help hold in the moisture your skin has absorbed during your bath.1
Apply This Defense Against Mother Nature
Once you’re out of the tub, the trick is to pat the skin dry (rubbing can irritate already sensitive skin) and moisturize while it’s still damp. Ask your Medical skin care practitioner about Obagi Professional-C Serums, Obagi’s award-winning serums contain a concentrated dose of Vitamin C and leave your skin feeling dewy soft. The rich formulas can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles made prominent by dry skin.
SPF is also key, since sun damage can deplete skin of the natural oils it needs to stay supple two (yes, sun damage can and does occur in winter). We suggest a high-level protection sunscreen such as Obagi Sun Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 50,* our award-winning sunscreen that protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays and has a sheer, matte finish that feels great on your skin.
Banish Blah Skin From the Inside Out
Your skin needs H20 more than ever in the winter months, so while you’re concentrating on drinking adequate amounts to stay healthy, don’t forget that drinking 10 to 12 glasses a day can also help maintain your skin’s outer glow. With glass in hand, be sure to take a multivitamin to help further improve your skin from the ravages of winter weather.
All of these tips should help to minimize any dryness your skin may suffer in the months ahead. If you have any tried and true tips to keep skin looking and feeling good all season long, feel free to leave them in the Comments section below. After all, it is the season for sharing!
