The dream for an effective way to see unwanted flab melt away with minimum effort is one shared by many. Well now, according to www.sify.com, a team of scientists have developed a “cool new device” that can zap away those annoying love handles or beer bellies.
The device works by turning the heat down drastically. An ice cold gel patch is attached to the flabby bits and the sub-zero temperatures kill of the fat cells which are then reabsorbed by the body and flushed out of the body over the next couple of months.
The scientists who designed the device realized that although fat freezes at a lower temperature than other types of tissue, skin and muscles can survive sub-zero temperatures without suffering lasting damage. Debbie Scott, 60, who had the treatment, is quoted on the Daily Mail as saying: “It’s uncomfortable but not painful. For the next couple of days you touch the area and it’s numb but after a month the bulge had shrunk.”
However, as mentioned on www.themedguru.com, the ‘CoolSculpting’ device is effective for those who have a little fat to lose and that it is not suitable for treating obesity.
