In the last couple of years CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular fat reduction treatments around the world. But if you don’t understand the fat freezing technology, you may be skeptical about the procedure. So does CoolSculpting really work? Yes, CoolSculpting really does get rid of stubborn fat bulges, and contour the body.
How CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting uses a scientifically proven process known as cryolipolysis to freeze and kill unwanted fat cells.
The CoolSculpting applicator emits cold energy that targets the fat cells, which are more susceptible to cold temperature than surrounding cells and tissue. The fat cells crystallize and die naturally, after which they are processed and flushed from the body. This process can take several weeks, so optimal results may take up to 3 months.
The fat cells that are expelled from the body are gone for good, so the results are long-lasting, but patients must maintain a healthy lifestyle.
How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need?
Many patients get the results they want after only one treatment, as CoolSculpting reduces fat in the treated area by 20%-25%. However, your physician will create a customized treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals.
Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
If you are in relatively good shape, but have a few areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution, but is designed to treat isolated pockets of fat that are difficult to reduce e.g. love handles or muffin top.
