How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Some bulges of body fat are really stubborn. Even with a proper diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle, there are still a few problem areas that just don’t seem to respond well. You can blame genetics, but you don’t have to live with it. If you are tired of working hard and not seeing results, it might be time to get a little help from the professionals. And while you may think that liposuction is the only surefire way to rid yourself of pesky, unwanted fat, you’d be wrong. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. It can help freeze off unwanted fat to reveal the slimmer, more contoured body that you seek. You’re probably skeptical, and we don’t blame you. How does CoolSculpting work? This article will answer common questions and help put your skepticism to rest.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses a specialized fat freezing technology called cryolipolysis; this process targets and eliminates unwanted fat cells by using a low temperature that targets only fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue untouched. After a few treatments, most patients see a noticeable reduction in fat. Some even see results after just one treatment. This is all without any scalpels or needles.

How does CoolSculpting work when compared to liposuction?

Rather than making an incision to physically extract excess fat, cryolipolysis utilizes a machine to target and freeze specific areas of fat without surgery. No surgery means less recovery time, less pain and no scarring. Results happen over the long term, and while you may not notice an immediate difference, your body will transform over time as the fat cells are steadily eliminated from your body.

How does CoolSculpting work compared to other non-surgical body contouring treatments?

CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical liposuction alternative that utilizes crylipolysis. Other FDA-approved devices use heat or laser to melt away fat. While these are useful as an alternative to liposuction and have shown good results, the risk of damaging surrounding tissue is higher with heating. CoolSculpting is also the only device approved to treat the double chin and some other areas of the body, giving you more options with cryolipolysis than fat melting methods offer.

FDA-Approved Treatment Areas for CoolSculpting

Is CoolSculpting safe? CoolSculpting is FDA approved to treat a variety of areas where stubborn fat bulges tend to hide. This includes the arms, double chin, thighs, tummy, love handles, bra bulge, back fat, and buttocks. New treatment areas are being approved all the time, and clinical trials show that CoolSculpting really does work to reduce unwanted fat without surgery.
