How Does CoolSculpting® Treat Stubborn Fat?

Share This Post

If you struggle to get rid of those last stubborn pockets of body fat, consider non-invasive body sculpting. CoolSculpting® is the most effective method of non-invasive body contouring. It freezes fat cells giving you the slimmer, more sculpted figure you want to see. If you have problem areas with extra fat, CoolSculpting® can help you eliminate it. 

What is CoolSculpting® Body Contouring?

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive body contouring treatment that helps eliminate stubborn fat from targeted areas of the body. This treatment uses cryolipolysis, a technology that freezes fat cells so your body can naturally filter them away. Popular areas to target with CoolSculpting® include the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. It can also be used in several other areas, including under the chin.

How Does CoolSculpting® Treat Stubborn Fat?

The procedure uses a special applicator that delivers controlled cooling to the targeted area. This freezing selectively damages fat cells, which will be removed gradually by the lymphatic system.  The surrounding tissue and skin are not affected by the cooling process. This makes CoolSculpting® a safe and effective option for fat reduction. With no injections or incisions, CoolSculpting® has a far lower risk of side effects than more invasive treatment methods. 

What are the Advantages of CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® offers several advantages over other forms of body contouring. It is non-invasive, which means there are no incisions or injections required. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting® carries little to no risk and requires no recovery time. 

CoolSculpting® also removes more fat than other methods. Studies showed up to 25% fat removal with one treatment. Many people only need one CoolSculpting® treatment to achieve their desired results, compared to multiple sessions with other systems. CoolSculpting® also produces long-lasting results. Fat cells do not grow back, so people who maintain a stable weight can see their CoolSculpting® results last a lifetime. 

Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting®?

Unlike some other body contouring types, no downtime is required with CoolSculpting®. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. You may have minor redness and swelling that last a few days. Some numbness in the treated area can last for a few weeks. 

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Good candidates for CoolSculpting® are individuals who have stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas of fat are typically found in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, and under the chin. Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® should be near their ideal body weight, have good skin elasticity, and have realistic expectations for the treatment results.
