Does CoolSculpting Work?

Are you at your ideal weight but can’t get rid of that annoying belly pooch?   CoolSculpting may be a good option for you.  CoolSculpting is a procedure that freezes away unwanted fat.  But like many people considering treatment you may be wondering if CoolSculpting really works.

Does CoolSculpting Work?

Yes, CoolSculpting does work.  CoolSculpting is a very effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses a system of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis, to reduce unwanted fat.  Cryolipolysis is a process that uses cold temperatures to freeze and kill stubborn fat cells.   

A single CoolSculpting treatment reduces the fat layer in the targeted area by 20-25%.  Most patients need only one treatment to achieve their body contouring goals, but some opt for a second treatment to improve their results.

The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting because the fat cells that are treated are gone for good.  However, weight gain can cause the fat cells to grow, so patients are advised to follow healthy eating habits and exercise regularly, to maintain results.  

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment that targets specific trouble spots that are resistant to diet and exercise, so it is not a weight-loss treatment.

How CoolSculpting Works

The CoolSculpting handpiece is applied to the treatment area and the freezing temperature selectively targets the fat cells, but does not harm surrounding cells and tissue.  The frozen fat cells are then naturally processed and flushed from the body over the following weeks, so the results of CoolSculpting are not immediate.  It typically takes 1-3 months to see results.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA cleared to treat the abdomen, flanks, outer and inner thighs, under the chin, upper arms, back fat, bra fat, and underneath the buttocks.
