What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment free of painful surgery or a long recovery process. Treatments use advanced cooling technology to eliminate fat cells that resist diet and exercise. Scientifically known as Cryolipolysis, the fat freezing technology was developed by Harvard Scientists who observed that fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures than surrounding skin cells or tissue. When exposed to precise cooling, fat cells crystallize, and the cell membrane ruptures. The discovery of Cryolipolysis led to the invention of the cooling technology of CoolSculpting. This safe treatment exposes resistant fat deposits to temperatures that freeze the subcutaneous fat cells.

What is CoolSculpting Intended For?

CoolSculpting is for healthy people who exercise and eat a balanced diet but still struggle with fat bulges. The non-invasive technology of CoolSculpting is safe and virtually painless. In addition, treatments require minimal to no downtime, making CoolSculpting an ideal option for people who want to reduce fat without surgery. The most popular areas for CoolSculpting treatment include belly fat, love handle or flank fat, and submental fullness. The fat-freezing procedure can, however, conquer fat cells from head to knees.

CoolSculpting can treat the following areas:

  • Upper arm fat
  • Inner and outer thigh fat
  • Submental region (double chin and neck fat)
  • Back fat
  • Fat above the knees
  • The chest (popular for men)
  • The armpits or bra bulge
  • Hips and flanks
  • Abdomen or belly fat
  • Banana roll below the buttocks

What is CoolSculpting Not Intended For?

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It should not be used to treat obesity. It is a body contouring treatment meant to reduce isolated pockets of fat from healthy, active adults. Unlike weight loss treatments that only shrink fat cells, CoolSculpting eliminates them. Over several weeks, the dead fat cells process out of the body as waste through the lymphatic system. Further, unlike weight loss treatments that preserve the ability of shrunken fat cells to re-expand with weight gain, CoolSculpting fat cells are entirely removed from the body. CoolSculpting provides long-term results because once the fat cells are gone, they can never grow back or return.
