Weight loss A healthy body requires a minimum amount of fat for the normal functioning of body systems. However, too much storage fat – in other words, being overweight - impairs health, mobility and flexibility.
It makes daily activities difficult and prevents one from enjoying life to the fullest. It affects one's body image and is damaging to self-esteem. Aside from those issues, the risk of serious medical conditions such as heart disease and high blood pressure can also increase. A person may become overweight could be due to genetic predispotion, a sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits, metabolic disorders, and hormonal imbalances amongst others.

What are the benefits of Vaser Liposelection?
It is minimally invasive, for one, and can be performed as an outpatient procedure. It specifically targets fat cells, hence reduces damage to surrounding healthy tissue. It has been clinically proven to enhance skin retraction and reduce blood loss.
How does Cool Sculpting by Zeltiq work?
Fat cells are biologically vulnerable to low temperatures. Cool Sculpting by Zeltiq cools the treated area to just above freezing, promoting a process called apoptosis which causes the targeted fat to shrink. Eventually, the damaged fat cells will be drained from the body through its natural metabolic process.
