What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® applies cold to targeted areas to kill fat cells. The dead fat cells are then naturally removed by the body. The remaining fat condenses, resulting in a thinner look with fewer fat bulges.
Fat cells die when exposed to cold temperatures. This method is very safe and gentle on the body, especially when compared to traditional fat reduction methods such as surgical liposuction.
How Does CoolSculpting Eliminate Fat Cells?
When the temperature of your body’s fat cells reaches around 40 degrees, they die without causing harm to the surrounding tissues.
This works through a method called Cryolipolysis, which means “fat freezing.” Frozen fat cells go through a process called apoptosis, a natural process where they die off and are consumed by white blood cells, before being filtered, and processed by the body.
What Results Can I Expect?
The CoolSculpting procedure results in around a 20% reduction in fat cells at the treatment site. It then takes around two to four months for the full results to be visible.
There is no downtime and no needles, surgery, or anesthesia, making this procedure non-invasive and very safe.
Clinical findings on the effectiveness of CoolSculpting treatments were published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, reporting “Caliper measurements demonstrated 23% reduction in fat layer thickness at 3 months.”
Assessments of CoolSculpting before and after pictures concluded “86% of subjects” showed improvements, and patient surveys revealed, “82% of patients would recommend the procedure to a friend.”
CoolSculpting® is a long-term solution to eliminate areas of stubborn fat. So as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, the results should last.
Which Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?
Coolsculpting can be used almost anywhere on the body. However, popular areas include:
What Does A Coolsculpting Treatment Involve?
You will change into a medical gown, and your practitioner will draw on your skin with a marker to define the area you wish to treat., You will then position yourself on the table or chair so that the technician can get to work.
The Coolsculpting procedure is over quickly. Your expert technician will draw fat into a cooling panel, and you will feel a cool sensation. After about five minutes the area will go numb. While it works its magic you can read a book, watch TV, or even catch up on emails.
Coolsculpting uses safe cutting-edge technology. Immediately post-treatment many people go on with their normal activities.
A Natural Solution to Unwanted Fat
Unlike other fat-reduction treatments that use surgical intervention, sonic waves, or lasers, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that works with the body’s natural processes.
While traditional methods risked injury to surrounding areas and required significant downtime, Coolsculpting has been developed by Harvard Scientists to achieve amazing results without harming the skin. No other tissue is frozen during the process, only the fat cells to the point of reduction. It leaves no scars and keeps your skin in good condition.
Minimal Downtime and Lasting Results
Perhaps the greatest benefit of CoolSculpting is that there is minimal to no downtime, and the procedure is quick so you can fit it into your daily routine.
Although it can take up to six months for your body to process the fat cells, as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise you will experience effective and long-lasting results.
