What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical fat-reduction procedure. It’s a type of body sculpting or contouring that cools your fat cells causing them to die and naturally work their way out of your body. CoolSculpting® is ideal for removing small areas of fat that have not responded to a healthy diet and exercise, such as love handles, belly fat, and underarm fat. CoolSculpting® kills fat cells rather than just reducing their size so that the results can be permanent as long as you continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. 

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® uses a method called cryolipolysis, which means “fat freezing.” During a CoolSculpting® procedure, your unwanted fat cells will be cooled to just above freezing temperatures. This kills the cell without causing harm to any nearby organs or skin. The fat cells will die and your body will naturally process and remove them. 

How Long Until I See Results from CoolSculpting®

Since CoolSculpting® relies on your body to naturally remove the dead fat cells, the process can take anywhere from a few weeks to six months before you to see complete results. Often, you will notice a slow reduction of fat from the treated area as the fat cells die and are slowly processed by your body. 

How Long Do CoolSculpting® Results Last?

Since CoolSculpting® kills fat cells rather than shrinking them the way that losing weight from changing your diet and increasing your exercise does, the results can be permanent. However, this completely depends upon your diet and exercise routine. Just because some fat cells have been removed does not mean that other fat cells in that area cannot grow if you are consuming more calories than you are expending. You have to keep to a healthy diet and exercise routine if you want the results of CoolSculpting® to be permanent.
