CoolSculpting is a patented nonsurgical cooling technique that reduces fat in targeted areas. It’s based on the science of cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis uses cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells. It targets fat cells on the inner and outer thigh, abdomen, sides, upper arms, and chin.
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat reduction procedure that involves no anesthesia, needles, or incisions. It’s based on the principle of cooling subcutaneous fat to the point that the fat cells are destroyed by the cooling process and absorbed by the body. Subcutaneous fat is the layer of fat just under the skin.
Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting stems from the science of cryolipolysis, which uses the cellular response to cold to break down fatty tissue. Extracting energy from fat layers causes the fat cells to die gradually while leaving surrounding nerves, muscles, and other tissues unaffected.
During the months after treatment, the digested fat cells are sent to the lymphatic system to be filtered out as waste. It’s common to experience feelings of pulling and pinching during the process, but overall the procedure involves minimal pain. The provider typically will massage the treated areas immediately after treatment to break up any frozen deep tissue. This will help your body begin to absorb the destroyed fat cells.
CoolSculpting (fat-freezing) is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that kills the fat cells by 25% Over the next 5-8 weeks the dead cells are naturally metabolized and digested by your body as if they were a waste product.
CoolSculpting is a permanent solution to get rid of stubborn fat cells. The fat cells are crystallized and frozen through CoolSculpting treatment, destroyed naturally and gone forever! Any remaining fat cells can still enlarge over time if weight is put on in the future and can therefore affect results, but typically if you regain the same weight and BMI (Body Mass Index) as treated, your results will be visible
