The CoolSculpting procedure works by using a device to target and freeze the fat cells, which are then naturally shed by the body over time. CoolSculpting is a groundbreaking alternative to more invasive procedures such as liposuction and requires no surgery, incisions, or downtime.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting works with a process called “cryolipolysis.” During the procedure, a special device is used to cool the targeted body area to a temperature that causes fat cells to freeze and die without causing harm to the skin and surrounding tissue. A vacuum feature suctions the skin and underlying fat tissue upward into an applicator, which then cools the area to a temperature that is low enough to freeze the fat cells. Over the next few weeks, the body naturally sheds the dead fat cells through the natural metabolic processes. Once the fat cells are shed by the body, they are gone forever, leaving the patient to enjoy a slimmer, more sculpted physique.

What areas can be slimmed with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for treating several areas of the body where stubborn fat accumulates, in women and in men:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Back (upper and lower)
  • Underneath the buttocks (banana roll)
  • Double chin

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure and is not a treatment for obesity. It is designed to remove small pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are individuals who close to an ideal body weight live a healthy lifestyle but have specific areas of fat that won’t disappear, even with a good diet and consistent exercise.

What is the treatment experience?

CoolSculpting treatments typically takes about an hour for each treatment area. The patient is resting on a treatment bed during the procedure. The initial sensation is of extreme cold, which has a numbing effect, and the experience is generally painless. Once completed, patients can then just return to their normal activities. It may require several treatments to achieve the desired results.

How long will it take to see results?

For the slimming effect to appear will take several week, as the body needs time to shed the dead fat cells. Research has shown that about 24% of the fat in an area can be lost with a CoolSculpting procedure.
