What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive method of body sculpting that uses the gentle power of controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells. In the weeks and months following a treatment session, these fat cells are gradually removed from the body, leaving behind a sculpted, slimmer physique.
While CoolSculpting® can be used to address fat on nearly any area of the body, the most popular treatment areas include the:
How Does it Work?
Fat cells have a significantly higher freezing temperature than other tissues in the body, meaning that they do not need to be exposed to harmfully cold temperatures to freeze, rupture, and die. This process of fat cell death in the face of cold temperatures is called Cryolipolysis®.
CoolSculpting® can be used to tighten, tone, and slim nearly any area of the body through the process of Cryolipolysis®. During treatment, a cooling applicator is applied to the patient’s desired treatment area for an hour, freezing and disrupting the structure of the fat cells in the addressed area. As these fat cells rupture, they are gradually removed from the body in the weeks and months following treatment.
What can I Expect from Treatment with CoolSculpting®?
Each CoolSculpting® treatment takes about one hour to complete per area addressed. While the cooling administered might feel intense and painful at first, many patients are able to comfortably settle into treatment within a few minutes. Most people who undergo this procedure find it to be so leisurely that they read, watch Netflix, or even take a nap.
Following treatment, patients may experience side effects like numbness, swelling, bruising, tingling, firmness, or pain. Fortunately, these usually subside within a few weeks. Because it takes time for the ruptured fat cells targeted with treatment to be removed from the body, patients should expect to wait a few weeks to begin to see changes from their treatment, with full results becoming visible after two months.
