If you eat well and exercise regularly, but can’t get rid of stubborn fat on certain spots like your abdomen and flanks, CoolSculpting can correct those bothersome areas for you. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that is suitable for both men and women. But how can you decide if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting.

How CoolSculpting tackles unwanted fat

CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that reduces fat by freezing and destroying the fat cells.

The CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the area of excess fat and selectively freezes the fat cells, causing them to die. The treated cells are then processed and naturally eliminated by the body.

There is no downtime and few side-effects after CoolSculpting. Patients can expect to see a positive difference in their body about 3 weeks after treatment, but full results can take 2 months or longer.

Are you a candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you have stubborn pockets of fat that simply won’t go away, and are at your goal body weight, you may be the right candidate for CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting gets rid of small areas of fat, so it works best when combined with a lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise. This makes it the ideal treatment for people that are already working out and are near their goal weight, but have a few areas of diet resistant fat they would like to remove.

CoolSculpting candidates should also have realistic expectations about what the final outcome will look like.
