Dr. Shim Ching’s practice was the first to offer CoolSculpting in Honolulu, Hawaii, for fat reduction without surgery. CoolSculpting is an innovative, non-invasive procedure that uses advanced, patented, tissue cooling technology to gently target and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin. This is done without needles, incisions, anesthesia, or pain medication.
The Science Behind CoolSculpting
The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting procedure was discovered by dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting utilizes the non-invasive cooling of fat cells to induce lipolysis (breaking down of fat cells) without damage to the skin. The result is a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat. A non-invasive applicator is attached to the targeted procedure area to cool the underlying fat tissue, while protecting the skin. The cooled fat cells undergo apoptosis (controlled disappearance of cells) and are gradually eliminated, reducing the thickness of the treated fat layer.
