The Ice Age Of Body Contouring Treatments

There are plenty of natural beauty remedies for facial rejuvenation and body contouring but does being stung by bees count as one?

Well Gwyneth Paltrow seems to think so and even practices it as well! She admitted that she once paid money to be stung by bees. This treatment falls under the practice of apitherapy, where products of honey bees (venom included) are used for medicinal purposes and it’s been around for ages. As far as natural therapy goes, the application of cold temperatures to treat problems is another popular option.

Today, the evolution of aesthetic science has presented an even wider selection of treatment solutions and this includes cryotherapy. It involves subjecting the entire body to subzero temperatures in a freezing chamber. Sportsmen have taken a fancy to it. Similar to the philosophy of “icing the injured area” after a sports practice, now they can “ice” their entire body.

According to Forbes: “Often, the person will stand in a tank or closet-like device, wear minimal clothing and be bathed in liquid nitrogen or refrigerated cold air… like taking the ultimate cold shower.” News.com.au also reported that cryotherapy improves appearance and reduces body weight. While cryotherapy sounds extreme and somewhat unpleasant, scientists have found another way to leverage cold without discomfort to the whole body. That requires using cryolipolysis or fat freezing for fat reduction or body contouring.

Fat loss and body contouring with CoolSculpting by Zeltiq

It has to be understood that there is a difference between weight loss and fat reduction. In weight loss, the fat cells are smaller but they are still present in the body whereas fat reduction means a removal of fat cells from the body.

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is the only non-invasive US FDA-approved localised treatment using cryolipolysis for body contouring and to get rid of stubborn fats. It works by freezing and eliminating fat cells permanently on the problem area. Only your fat cells on the treated area are affected and passed out of your body naturally. Unlike cryotherapy where your whole body is immersed in the freezing chamber, fat freezing is a comfortable process where you can even enjoy a movie or read a book during CoolSculpting.

Furthermore, when you complement this treatment with a healthy lifestyle and diet, the results can be more pronounced and longer lasting. Isn’t that cool?
