If you have a few troublesome areas that won’t disappear despite diet and exercise, CoolSculpting may be a good option for you. CoolSculpting is an innovative fat reduction procedure that has soared in popularity since entering the market in 2010. However, patients are often unsure exactly how the treatment works, so they often ask – Will I have scars after CoolSculpting.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
Cryolipolysis, which is an advanced cooling technology, is the science behind CoolSculpting. During the procedure the applicator delivers cold temperature to the target area, and this cools the fat cells to the point where they crystallize and die. The cells are eventually broken down by the body and expelled as waste, leaving the treated area slimmer than before. CoolSculpting reduces fat in the treated area by 20-25%.
Will I Have Scars After CoolSculpting?
No, you won’t have any scars after CoolSculpting, because it is a completely non-invasive, nonsurgical treatment that requires no anesthesia, needles, or incisions. The CoolSculpting applicator is simply positioned on the target area and left in place for about 30-45 minutes, until the fat is frozen. This makes CoolSculpting the ideal no-scar alternative to liposuction, for the right candidate (learn more).
What areas can CoolSculpting treat?
CoolSculpting can be used to reduce fat on the flanks, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, below the chin, beneath the buttocks (banana roll), around the armpits, and lower back. CoolSculpting is ideal for men and women wanting to reduce stubborn fat, and improve body contours.
