What Is CoolSculpting?coolsculpt.jpeg (shutterstock_1689645019.webp)

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat removal and body contouring treatment that uses cryolipolysis, the scientific term for fat-freezing. When exposed to freezing temperatures, our body's fat cells freeze, and the dead cells are then eliminated after a couple months. This innovative method of fat removal results in up to a 25 percent fat reduction in a treatment area. 

This revolutionary, FDA-approved procedure typically only needs to be performed once for patients to see incredible results. Although certain candidates can receive more than one CoolSculpting session if they want to reduce and contour certain areas of fat even further. 

CoolSculpting is designed to remove stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat (fat found just underneath the skin) in the following areas:

  • Love handles 
  • Abdominal Fat
  • Buttocks
  • Upper/lower back fat
  • Inner/outer thighs
  • Hips
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin/neck

What Are The Benefits Of CoolSculpting?

More patients are opting for CoolSculpting over traditional fat removal procedures like liposuction and gastric bypass, and for good reason. CoolSculpting boasts numerous benefits, including:

  • Up to a 25 percent reduction in fat
  • No incisions or anesthesia required
  • Quick, painless procedure
  • Zero recovery time
  • Multiple areas can be treated at once
  • Fat-reduction appears natural 
  • No dieting required
  • Long-lasting results

What Does CoolSculpting Feel Like?

Many patients are curious about what their pain or discomfort level will be like when undergoing the procedure. Since a freezing applicator is used on the skin, you can expect to feel intense cold as the area starts to become numb. The vacuum portion of the applicator sucks in the treatment area, which can create some mild pulling, pinching or tugging sensation.

Is CoolSculpting Right For Me?

CoolSculpting is an ideal procedure for men and women who are currently at a healthy weight, but still have some moderately-sized bulges or fat pockets in certain parts of the body. Unlike traditional weight loss surgeries like liposuction or gastric bypass, CoolSculpting is not an appropriate for treatment for obese patients.
