How Does Coolsculpting® Work?
Coolsculpting® works because fat freezes before other tissues, so a temperature low enough to freeze fat will leave the area around it unharmed. Breaking up fat cells by freezing is called cryolipolysis. The body’s metabolism will naturally remove these damaged cells. The cold comes from applicators placed on your skin, and treatment requires no incisions, injections, or other invasive methods.
How Long Does it Take to See Results from Coolsculpting®?
The body takes time to filter away all the damaged fat cells from the treatment area. It may take up to three months to notice results. Some people can see their desired results within two sessions, but you may need as many as six.
In the end, you can see a 20-25% fat reduction. This translates to visible slimming and sculpting, as well as lost inches. You can expect these results to last as long as you maintain your healthy lifestyle. Fat cells do not grow back, but the remaining cells can enlarge with weight gain.
Where Can I Have Coolsculpting®?
Coolsculpting® works on stubborn fat almost anywhere you have it. Because Coolsculpting® technology only targets fat cells, you can have this treatment on many parts of your body, including:
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Under the buttocks
