Does Coolsculpting Really Work?

Have you heard about CoolSculpting but you’re skeptical about the technology?   CoolSculpting is a unique non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperatures to get rid of stubborn fat bulges.  It’s therefore understandable that people often ask – Does CoolSculpting really work?

Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

Yes, CoolSculpting does work for the right candidate.  CoolSculpting is ideal for people that already have a toned body but have small amounts of ‘pinchable’ fat in targeted areas, that they are unable to reduce with diet and exercise.  It is designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat in areas like the abdomen, upper arms, flanks, and thighs.

CoolSculpting works based on proven science known as cryolipolysis.  Cryolipolysis is a technique that uses cold temperatures to selectively freeze and break down fat cells, without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue.  The fat cells eventually die and are naturally processed out of the body after several weeks.  

CoolSculpting works well because it reduces the number of fat cells in the body, so even if you do gain weight post-treatment the fat will be evenly distributed throughout the body.

CoolSculpting reduces fat in the treated area by 20-25%.  Most patients achieve optimal results with just one treatment (read more).

When Will You See Results With CoolSculpting?

The process of breaking down and removing the fat cells can take quite a few weeks, so the results of CoolSculpting are gradual.  Most patients notice initial changes within 3-4 weeks of treatment, but it can take up to 6 months to see the full results.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The fat cells treated during CoolSculpting won’t grow back.  Consequently, the refined body contours achieved with CoolSculpting will remain as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
