WACO (January 23, 2014) A local business is using an FDA approved procedure to target stubborn fat. Waco Body Sculpt is the only business in the Central Texas area to offer coolsculpting.

The process involves a vacuum that holds tissue in place and then begins freezing the fatty tissues underneath the skin.

The cold temperatures then kill the fat cells over a three month period. The cells are removed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.

Coolsculpting is being labeled as the noninvasive and more affordable alternative to liposuction.

Treatments start at $750.

The Food and Drug Administration approved the procedure in 2009.
