How CoolSculpting® Freezes Problem Spots in Their Tracks

Woman in Green

Despite your best efforts to stay active and eat right, stubborn fat deposits may unfortunately sometimes remain. It’s these deposits that are responsible for common cosmetic concerns such as a pudgy stomach or love handles that are visible even after reaching your target weight. CoolSculpting® is a new procedure that can dramatically reduce fat in these pesky problem spots without surgery, stitches or downtime. Here’s an in-depth look into how CoolSculpting® works and why it’s one of the most popular liposuction alternatives today.

Understanding Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis is the cooling process used during a CoolSculpting® treatment to target, freeze and rupture fat cells in the treatment area. Unlike other external fat targeting methods, such as lasers, cryolipolysis doesn’t impact or harm any other surrounding cells or tissue, making cryolipolysis a safer, gentler alternative. CoolSculpting is also completely noninvasive, so it doesn’t pose the same risks that are associated with cosmetic surgery.

After the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, they are naturally removed by the body’s metabolic processes. As the fat cells are eliminated, your body is left leaner, thinner and firmer. For years, surgical procedures like liposuction were the only option for patients struggling to eliminate diet and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting® is revolutionary because of its ability to effectively remove fat and improve body contours without anesthesia, scarring or downtime.

Your Results

CoolSculpting® requires no recovery period, and most patients resume their normal activities, including exercise, immediately after treatment. Some people may experience mild side effects such as bruising, redness or soreness, but these are mild and should dissipate quickly. The results, which will continue to improve in the months following treatment, are permanent as long as you stay active, eat a healthy and balanced diet and maintain your weight.
