What Is CoolSculpting and Who Can Benefit from It?

What Is CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat-reduction procedure that eliminates stubborn, unwanted fat without surgery. There is no downtime or recovery process involved, making it a very popular treatment for people who don’t have time to pause their busy lives for more complex methods.


Results from this revolutionary procedure are proven and long-lasting. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment to eliminate resistant fat using controlled cooling on the flanks, thighs, and abdomen.


How Does CoolSculpting Work?


This non-surgical, non-invasive body-contouring technology uses cold temperatures to freeze unwanted pockets of fat underneath the skin. The targeted fat cells crystallize, die, and get flushed safely from your system by your body’s natural processes. A member of our team will use a handheld device to deliver the treatment while you read a book, hop on social media, or even take a nap. 


CoolSculpting can reshape your body and address specific problem areas to meet your goals without the drawbacks of surgery. This treatment will provide natural-looking and gradual results. 


Changes can start becoming noticeable as soon as three weeks after a treatment session. Many people witness the most dramatic results after two or three months. The body continues to flush out crystallized fat cells for as long as six months after treatment.


Where on the Body Can CoolSculpting Be Used?


CoolSculpting can treat many areas of the body, most of which are notorious for storing stubborn fat. Some of the most common, FDA-approved areas that patients sculpt include:

  • Stomach
  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Abdomen

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?


This procedure is best for people who are at or close to their ideal weight and wish to tone and sculpt their bodies. Any patients seeking weight-loss solutions or a method for losing excessive amounts of weight are not ideal candidates. 


If you have a BMI of less than 30 and haven’t seen the results you’ve been looking for despite a healthy diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. If you aren’t an ideal candidate for traditional types of fat-reduction surgical procedures, CoolSculpting may also be right for you.


Anyone who is not pregnant at the time of the procedure and those who prefer non-surgical body-contouring will benefit from this FDA-cleared non-invasive fat-reduction procedure.


Why Choose CoolSculpting?


If you haven’t been able to get rid of fat in certain areas despite diet and exercise, there is hope with CoolSculpting’s non-invasive fat-reduction technique. The innovative technology used in this procedure can remove even the most stubborn fat from your body. Fat cells underneath the skin freeze at higher temperatures than the tissue that surrounds these cells, so the controlled cooling technology actually targets fat cells without damaging cells and tissues around them. 


Since this non-surgical body-contouring procedure doesn’t require incisions or invasive techniques, you’ll be able to return to your regular routine or your workday immediately afterward. 


As your body naturally processes the fat cells that were cooled, crystallized, and died in the weeks and months following your session, you’ll see natural fat loss results and a more toned figure. Once these fat cells have been processed and removed from your body, they are gone for good. Researchers have determined that the number of fat cells in your body is established during adolescence and cannot increase or decrease naturally during adulthood.


The CoolSculpting Procedure: What Is It Like?


Your CoolSculpting session may vary depending on several factors, such as the number of areas you want to treat during a single visit. If you have several areas to treat, you might need to schedule multiple sessions to meet your body-sculpting goals.


During your session, our provider will take a hand-held device that emits the controlled level of cooling required to target the fat cells. You’ll feel a cold sensation in the area being treated. Most people find the experience very comfortable, especially when the treatment area goes numb after five to ten minutes of “cooling.”


If you’re only treating one small area, the session may last 30 to 35 minutes. For larger treatment areas, CoolSculpting will take slightly longer.


Results (+ Tips)


There is no recovery or downtime involved with this non-surgical body-contouring procedure. Exercise after treatment is not required, but we recommend that patients practice an active, healthy lifestyle and eat well to maintain results. 


CoolSculpting patients should avoid fried or processed foods as well as foods high in sugar and starch content. In order to maintain your treatment results, stick to healthier alternatives like veggies, protein, whole grains, and fruits.


Many people find that they are excited to take care of themselves after seeing their results, reporting that their self-esteem, self-confidence, and motivation increase and remain high long after their CoolSculpting sessions.
