CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is a fat-freezing technique that, quite literally, freezes away unwanted pockets of fat in specific areas of the body. It is becoming more popular than options like liposuction as it is non-invasive, non-surgical, requires minimal downtime and offers lasting results.
The CoolSculpting Process
During the treatment, the handpiece of the machine fit securely over the unwanted fat and begins the cooling process. Because fat is more sensitive to freezing at a warmer temperature than skin, muscles, veins and nerves, CoolSculpting works by cooling the skin to a temperature that eliminates fat entirely, while leaving the other tissues completely unharmed. Just one session can destroy 20-30% of the fat cells in the target area. Each session takes between 35 and 75 minutes, although most patients opt to have multiple body areas done at once, so one appointment can last a couple of hours. The non-invasive procedure requires no recovery time and patients can return to their normal activities immediately following the session.
Is CoolSculpting Safe?
CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010 and is arguably one of the most in-demand cosmetic treatments on the market today. For more detailed information, take a look at our CoolSculpting Service section of the website.
Does CoolSculpting Really Work?
CoolSculpting is not a way to lose weight and is only recommended for individuals who are within 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. People who have been on a weight loss journey are looking to spot reduce in certain areas are excellent candidates for CoolSculpting. The procedure can rid of bulges in specific areas and can reduce the appearance of cellulite, leaving natural-looking results. The most popular areas for CoolSculpting treatments are the inner thighs, belly, back and flanks, under the bum, and the upper arms. Results take up to 3 months to show, but last indefinitely paired with a healthy and active lifestyle. Although CoolSculpting kills off fat cells currently present in the target area, it does not prevent the remaining cells from growing if the patient gains weight after treatment. Most patients only need one to two treatments, but additional sessions are available for those who want to see a bigger difference.
