Coolsculpting is a non invasive cosmetic treatment that works by freezing fat cells that are otherwise difficult to remove. Also called cryolipolysis, studies have shown that this is an effective fat reduction procedure with several benefits over invasive fat removal procedures like liposuction. Coolsculpting results can be seen in as little as 4 weeks, and an average of 20% fat is removed, all without cuts, surgery or anesthetic.
It is an FDA-cleared way to freeze fat without surgery or a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Many people have stubborn fat that is resistant to exercise and diet, but when combined with CoolSculpting can help minimize the appearance of those stubborn bulges. Fat cells crystalize and die at 4 degrees Celsius (C). CoolSculpting will bring the temperature as low as -11 degrees C to penetrate several layers of fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. Once those fat cells are crystallized, they die and are gone for good!
Take a brand new ice pack out of the freezer and place it on your bare skin – that is what the CoolSculpting procedure will feel like. Some experience a slight burning or tingling sensation for a few minutes, like when you put your cold hands into warm water, but that will quickly subside. After each application is done, your technician will perform a 2 minute manual massage to help break down the crystallized fat cells and bring the temperature back to normal, this can feel slightly uncomfortable but will quickly subside. Within minutes your body will not show sign of any treatment being done. Check out this time lapse of a CoolSculpting treatment to see how relaxing it can be.
Results can be seen in as little as 4 weeks, but the best results are seen in 2-3 months. Some results can take up to 6 months to fully develop. Check out some awesome results below!
Generally healthy individuals who are 20-30 pounds or less from their goal weight who are looking to treat areas of stubborn fat. Those above 35 pounds may still receive CoolSculpting, however, more treatments may be needed to achieve a peak result.
