So many people in my family have dimples. I mean, so many that we’ve taken pictures of all the “dimpled” kids in a group at holidays. I have dimples that I’m sure you can see in my avatars. I thought you were born with them. I had always heard they were some sort of defect, albeit a cute one, in a facial muscle. Now I’ve heard there could be an entirely different explanation.
Cryolipolysis is the scientific concept behind CoolSculpture, or freezing fat cells from your body. The cold actually kills off fat cells without damaging your skin and your body then rids itself of the cells naturally. And the process, which now has FDA approval, was discovered by doctors who noticed that children who ate a lot of popsicles growing up developed dimples because the cold had killed off fat cells in their cheeks! Who knew?
So I’ve been thinking. Why go through this cold sculpture business when I could probably just buy some inexpensive popsicles — or hey, maybe just a big bag of ice cubes — and rub them on my hips!
