ZO Skin Health & DNA Repairing Enzymes

DNA is a surprisingly fragile molecule. Though it’s essential to all your cells, it takes very little energy to break it apart. Sunlight, pollution, and free radicals damage DNA in over a million skin cells every day, impairing its natural defenses and basic functions. Cells with damaged DNA produce less collagen, less elastin, and fewer antioxidants. They make your skin weak, vulnerable, and prone to wrinkles, freckles, lines, and sunspots. As damage builds, your epidermis becomes thin, allowing red capillaries around your nose, cheeks, and ears to peak through.

Your neck is one of the most difficult areas of your body to deal with. Fat cells here are extremely stubborn, and often don't respond to diet or exercise.

How Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

The number of fat cells in your body stabilizes between the ages of 13 and 20. These cells shrink and grow as you gain or lose weight, but the total number of cells never changes unless you do something to remove them. In the past, the only option for individuals looking to get rid of unwanted fat cells was liposuction. Now there's a new and easier option called Coolsculpting.
