Does CoolSculpting Work?

Do you have pockets of stubborn fat in areas of your body despite being your ideal weight? If you’re looking for a solution to unwanted fat without surgery, CoolSculpting boasts non-surgical fat reduction with real results. But does CoolSculpting work?

Does CoolSculpting Work As Well As Reviews Claim?

Does CoolSculpting work as well as they say? Board-certified physicians conducted CoolSculpting clinical trials to test the safety and effectiveness of each treatment area. Following each clinical trial, physicians agreed that the system works to safely reduce unwanted fat, and the FDA cleared the device.

Does CoolSculpting work? It most certainly does, but individual results vary. Like any medical procedure, it’s not right for everyone. Furthermore, choosing the right providers is essential to see real results. This is why a consultation at a reputable medical facility is recommended to know if CoolSculpting is right for you and get excellent results.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The science of CoolSculpting is rather straight forward and easy to understand for most patients. The key to understanding how CoolSculpting works is to learn how body fat acts within the body and how it responds to cold temperatures.

Understanding Body Fat

Body fat is essential for human survival. It provides warmth and energy when food is scarce. What you may not have known is that the body doesn’t create fat cells when we gain weight; rather, our existing fat cells expand. If we use a body contouring procedure, such as CoolSculpting or liposuction, we remove pockets of fat cells. With those fat cells gone, you have fewer to hold fat and expand.

Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Technology

CoolSculpting is the first and only FDA-approved body contouring solution that utilizes crylipolysis, a specialized cooling technique that works to freeze specifically targeted fat cells during treatment. Freezing kills the fat cells. Once destroyed, they are gradually eliminated from the body through the natural processes of the lymphatic system.

On What Areas of the Body Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting was originally approved for belly fat and love handles (or the abs and flanks). Since then, physicians have tested other areas of the body through clinical trials. Where else does CoolSculpting work? Find out where you can get your fat frozen off below.

CoolSculpting for Abs and Flankscoolsculpting before and after photos

Upper and lower abs and the flanks have been successfully treated with CoolSculpting for years. They’re the most commonly requested treatment areas from both men and women looking to achieve a slimmer physique. Stubborn pockets of fat cells, usually sticking around due to genetic predisposition, are frozen and eliminated. Each area can be treated separately using a single applicator, though you can treat more than one area simultaneously with more than one CoolSculpting device and applicator.

Back and Bra Fat Reduction

Back fat and underarm fat that bulges when wearing a bra or strappy dress are two of the newer treatment areas to be approved for treatment. The process is the same as with the abs and love handles. Even a very small pocket of fat can be targeted and eliminated using crylipolysis.

Inner and Outer Thigh Slimming

The thighs are another highly requested treatment area for fat reduction. This includes both the inner and outer thighs. Whether your inner thighs rub together, causing discomfort, or your outer thighs give you a wide-hipped look you don’t care for, CoolSculpting can effectively eliminate the stubborn fat cells that gather in those areas.

Double Chin Reductioncoolsculpting for double chin

Until just a few years ago, the dreaded double chin could only be reduced using liposuction. In the same year, both Kybella and CoolMini for CoolSculpting hit the market. Does CoolSculpting work on the double chin? CoolMini is FDA approved and it has been shown to reduce double chin fat by an average of 20 percent. Multiple treatments are often required, as with other treatment areas.

Reduce Upper Arm Fat

Another area of fat you can blame on genetics is upper arm fat. It’s that hanging bulge of fat that wiggles when we wave at someone, making us reluctant to wear tank tops in the summer. Thankfully, the FDA recently approved CoolSculpting for arms, so you can wave goodbye to flabby upper arms.

Does CoolSculpting work on other areas of the body?

Some other areas of the body can be treated using CoolSculpting, like the knees and beneath the buttocks, also called “banana rolls.” Both have shown excellent results in many patients. Cryolipolysis has also been tested on gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) with excellent results.

Choosing the Right Providers

When you hear people who have tried CoolSculpting say it didn’t work for them, you may doubt its effectiveness. Instead of asking, “Does CoolSculpting work?” however, consider asking where they received the treatment. There’s an old saying that a tool is only as good as the person using it. If a nail is bent while hammering, it’s not the hammer’s fault, but the person wielding it. So if patients are receiving their CoolSculpting treatments with providers who don’t have the skills, training, and expertise in body contouring, their results won’t be as good as they can be.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that a non-surgical procedure can be done by anyone. It takes training and an understanding of body contouring to safely and effectively use CoolSculpting. At the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana, our providers are trained and supervised by Dr. C. William Hanke, a board-certified dermatologic surgeon and body contouring expert. In addition to providing patients with superior results using tumescent liposuction, he trains and lectures other physicians on body contouring techniques. This makes him, and our staff, uniquely qualified to provide superior CoolSculpting results.
