CoolSculpting is the first and only FDA-approved procedure to use controlled cold to target and destroy fat cells. Fat cells freeze more quickly than muscle and skin tissues that surround the fat, making it possible for CoolSculpting to safely target, crystallize, and destroy fat cells without harming any surrounding tissue. The destroyed cells are naturally processed and disposed of by the body, resulting in a trimmer, slimmer physique.
CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive. The procedure is painless and requires no use of anesthesia. You will begin by lying back in a comfortable chair or on a comfortable table. The device is then placed over the treatment area where there is fat you want to target. The device applies intense cold, causing the fat cells to crystallize and die.
You will feel some pressure and intense cold during the initial minutes of the CoolSculpting treatment. This sensation quickly dissipates, allowing you to fully relax and sit back. Most patients scroll through their phone, read, or work on a laptop, while others rest or even take a nap.
One of the many benefits of CoolSculpting is that it requires no downtime or recovery period, allowing patients to get right back to their day. Patients can immediately return to their usual activities once their CoolSculpting treatment is over. Meanwhile, your body is doing its natural work of disposing of the cells and flushing them out of the body.
Your body will require some time, usually a couple of months, to process and dispose of the fat cells that CoolSculpting destroys. You will likely notice a reduction of fat in the area soon after your treatment is complete. However, the complete results take more time. Once the fat cells are fully disposed of, you will be able to enjoy a more toned, lean appearance. And finally say goodbye to the stubborn areas of fat you’ve tried so hard to budge!
CoolSculpting is designed particularly for the more difficult areas of the body that tend to hang onto fat. CoolSculpting helps to sculpt and tone these areas into the tighter shape you desire. Common treatment areas include the following:
