What Is Coolsculpting?

Do you have worrisome fat bulges that you can’t seem to lose with diet and exercise?   CoolSculpting can help!  CoolSculpting is an innovative fat reduction treatment that provides noticeable, lasting results.  Therefore, if you are not interested in surgical fat removal, CoolSculpting may be the answer for you.  But what exactly is CoolSculpting?  

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. CoolSculpting targets subcutaneous fat below the surface of the skin, so it is not a weight-loss treatment.  

The science behind CoolSculpting is known as cryolipolysis.  Cryolipolysis is a scientifically proven technology based on the principle that fat cells are more vulnerable to cold than other skin cells. 

CoolSculpting reduces fat in the treated area by 20%-25%.  The results of CoolSculpting are not immediate, as the body takes time to remove the treated fat cells.  It can take anywhere from 1-3 months to see the final results. 

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting targets those areas where most people tend to accumulate extra fat.  This includes the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, flanks, and upper arms.

How Does CoolSculpting Work? 

The cold temperatures selectively target and freeze the fat cells, while leaving the surrounding cells, muscles, and nerves unharmed.  The frozen fat cells die and are gradually expelled from the body in the weeks following treatment.  

Depending on the area being treated, a single CoolSculpting treatment takes about 45 minutes to perform. 

The results of CoolSculpting can last a long time if patients commit to a healthy lifestyle after treatment. 

Benefits Of CoolSculpting

For many years, liposuction was the gold standard for improving body contours.  However, CoolSculpting is an excellent non-surgical alternative for people who need to remove small areas of fat.

Since CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment there is no need for anesthesia so there are fewer risks.  There are also no incisions, which means there won’t be any scars.   

The fat cells treated with CoolSculpting are gone for good.  The body has a specific number of fat cells that can be precisely targeted with CoolSculpting.  Once the cells are flushed from the body after treatment they are gone for good, so there will be fewer fat cells in the treated area. 

CoolSculpting is a safe system that has built-in safety features.  In particular, the system shuts down automatically if the sensors detect that the skin is becoming too cold.   

There is minimal discomfort with CoolSculpting.  Patients will feel intense cold at the start of treatment, but this resolves after a few minutes.  They may also experience pulling or tugging sensations but should not feel any pain during treatment.

There is no downtime after CoolSculpting so patients can resume normal activities right away. 

CoolSculpting has a high patient satisfaction rate because it is a safe, comfortable treatment that delivers consistent results.  

Are There Any Side-Effects?

Common side-effects of CoolSculpting include swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness, which usually resolve within 2 weeks. 

Are You A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?

If you are at your goal weight, eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly but have a few areas of stubborn fat you can’t seem to shake, you may be a suitable candidate for CoolSculpting.   Candidates for CoolSculpting should also be in good health and have realistic expectations of the procedure.  

If you are interested in CoolSculpting, be sure to select an experienced  CoolSculpting provider with the technical and aesthetic skills needed to deliver optimal patient outcomes.
