CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, in-office body contouring procedure to treat stubborn, diet and exercise-resistant fat. With no surgery and little to no downtime, it is one of our most popular procedures and has revolutionized non-invasive body contouring! CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss procedure, but it does help to contour and re-shape targeted problem areas by freezing fat cells.
How Does CoolSculpting Freeze Fat Cells?
The CoolSculpting procedure will NOT help you lose weight. However, if you want to lose unwanted fat and look slimmer and feel better in your clothes, then CoolSculpting may be right for you. The CoolSculpting fat-freezing technology delivers precisely controlled cooling, via various sized handpieces that suction to your skin and fat “like a vacuum”, to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), and then die off. Over time your body naturally processes the fat and the dead cells are flushed from the body.
Fat-Reduction Results with CoolSculpting
After a CoolSculpting® procedure, the body naturally expels the destroyed fat cells. Treated patients may see a noticeable reduction in fat as early as six to eight weeks after treatment, with the most noticeable results typically appearing after two to three months. However, your body will continue to metabolize fat cells for up to six months after treatment. Most CoolSculpting patients, generally see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area. Unlike some other technologies where the fat cells merely shrink down but, over time, return to their pre-treatment size, CoolSculpting® provides permanent, long-term body contouring results by reducing the number of fat cells in the treated area – not merely shrinking them. Most patients require more than one treatment depending on their expectations and the amount of fat to be removed. Patients do not shed pounds, but will often shed a dress size and some of the “extra” that previously hung over the top of their pants or bra.
CoolSculpting is perfect for patients looking for a better contour or better proportions at their current weight. It is the most popular non-invasive treatment for patients looking to reduce fat that is diet and exercise resistant in the belly and love handles, but is also FDA-approved to remove fat in many areas, including:
- under the chin or upper neck
- upper arms
- buttocks and under the buttocks
