Tired of trying to lose stubborn fat?
Are you someone who is frustrated with stubborn pockets of fat?
And have you tried but failed to eliminate this fat with diet and exercise?
A Tamira blog subscriber, Priya, sent us this email a few weeks ago:
“I’ve been working out regularly for nearly four years now. I keep check on my diet and count the calories I consume. I also tried cutting down on my intake of sugar. But nothing seems to be working with my belly fat. Inspite of all this effort, I still have to make compromises on what I want to wear so I can hide my fat. Please suggest something”
If you, like Priya, are also fed up of trying to lose fat in body areas like Chin, Arms, Back, Midsection – Abdomen & Belly or Thighs then CoolSculpting at Tamira may just be what you are looking for.

What is CoolSculpting?
Unhealthy diet and sedentary life style results in accumulation of excess body fat in areas like, abdomen, arms, thighs, back etc.
Most important factor in attempting to lose weight is to regularize the diet and life style.
Daily intake must match the energy expenditure. This could help to maintain normal weight.
However when weight reduction is aimed then daily calorie intake must be less than energy expenditure or the energy expenditure has to be increased over and above the daily calorie intake.
In such cases, non-surgical fat reduction techniques like CoolSculpting can prove to be effective.
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction (Cryolipolysis) treatment.

It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues.
CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin.
The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die.
Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

What is Cryolipolysis?
Among the many non-surgical techniques available to assist in weight loss in addition to diet and exercise “Cryolipolysis” has been endorsed by FDA to produce consistent and safe results.
This involves Application of the hand piece tailored to specific area for a period of one hour followed by a massage.
The fat is cooled below a temperature in which it could survive and the dead fat is slowly removed by the body by a process called “Apoptosis” over a period of three months.
During this period some amount of pain and altered sensation is experienced in the area subjected to Cryolipolysis.
A maximum of three areas can be handled on a single day. Same area can be repeated after 4 months.
The procedure requires examination and evaluation by a cosmetic surgeon only and no blood tests would be required.
However when performing Cryolipolysis over abdomen one must rule out chances of ventral hernia.
