Khloe Kardashian uses CoolSculpting!

Living in the public eye, Khloé has to deal with the backlash that comes with the change, which means stories that are flooded with tales of plastic surgery. “People say I’ve had my butt done or I’ve had liposuction. When I hear that I have fake body parts it frustrates me, but I also take it as a compliment. I bust my ass every day, so I get annoyed when people say I’ve had liposuction and my hard work gets discredited. Yet
 on the other hand, I take it as 
a compliment because it’s like 
I look that good that my butt looks fake,” she says.

In fact, the self-proclaimed Botox virgin says she doesn’t have an issue with plastic surgery or fillers for that matter. “I haven’t done Botox or anything like that yet, but I have no problem doing it. If I need filler, and when I do, because one day I will, I’m going to get it. But until then, I’ll do whatever I can to prevent wrinkles and aging.”

To preserve her looks, Khloé’s anti-aging routine weighs heavy in the facial oil department. “I’m like a creature of habit; I like what I like. I know that oils seem really heavy for your face, but they’re not. I noticed such a change in my skin and its elasticity, especially on my forehead.”

One beauty treatment she perks up about is lasers. “I love lasers and I do a ton of them on my face; I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I do them more for discoloration, but they do tighten, too. I’ve also done CoolSculpting and treatments for the stretch marks on my butt. I’m a huge fan of lasers and I love them.”

Mariah Carey Slims Down with CoolSculpting

Mariah Carey Slims Down with CoolSculpting  mariah blog

 The ever-radiant Mariah Carey was all smiles at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and for good reason.  The superstar debuted a brand new body! But how did the mother of 4 year old twins lose so much weight so quickly?  “The conventional way of course,” the Carey insider says.  “Dieting and CoolSculpting!”

 Mariah Carey looked like a glowing holiday queen at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  The songstress, who performed at the annual event, wore a flowing red gown that showed off her fabulous curves – and what appears to be a noticeably slimmer figure. “From the photos and from everything I’ve been following, she definitely has lost a significant amount of weight,” says Stephen Davis, MD, board-certified plastic surgeon.

So how did she do it?  Sources say CoolSculpting, a trademarked term for cryolipolysis (cold-assisted fat breakdown), is rising in popularity as a way to reduce fat without surgery.  The cosmetic procedure uses a special device to freeze a specific area of the body, killing the fat cells but leaving other tissue unharmed. And here’s the crazy thing:  “It actually works,” says weight loss expert Charlie Seltzer, MD, an obesity specialist in Pennsylvania.

A 2014 study in the journal Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology concluded that “cryolipolysis is considered to be both safe and effective.”  It actually freezes the fat, causing an average reduction of 25% of the thickness of fat after one one-hour session with no scars or surgery.  This procedure is scientifically proven to work, and is used for all parts of the body, including the tummy, arms, love handles, back fat, man boobs, inner and outer thighs, and double chin.

The FDA first approved the device in 2010.   “It’s basically a suction applicator that pulls an area of fat inside the cup when you turn it on.  Once inside the applicator, the area gets super-cold.  For the first five minutes it feels like someone is pinching you and then it becomes numb.  In about an hour, the fat cells that have been sucked in become like a frozen stick of butter.  The area is massaged for two minutes to break up the fat cells and dissolve the stick of butter.

Why doesn’t the skin freeze and die, too?  Fat deposits are vascularized differently from skin and other surrounding tissues, which protects the skin but not the fat cells.

The treated fat cells are necrotized (that is, they die off), and the body eliminates the waste naturally over a period of weeks.  Within two weeks, the area might not look as full as it used to, and within four weeks, it will be “markedly changed.“

“The new photos of Mariah Carey on Thanksgiving suggest that she has lost at least 45 pounds in two months, “ says celebrity trainer, Charlene Ciardiello.  “She looks incredible.”

Hundreds of thousands of people receive liposuction every year in the United States to slim down and remove pockets of cellulite, but not everyone is willing to go under the knife for a surgical procedure.

CoolSculpting is a relatively new cosmetic procedure that uses cold to kill fat cells and remove them from the body. The procedure has received mainstream attention on a CBS This Morning segment that showed the procedure in action and explained that it can produce results similar to those from liposuction after just a handful of sessions. The segment also reported that nearly all the experts who were consulted agreed that CoolSculpting really works as long as it is performed on the right patient.
