CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical and non-invasive procedure for permanent fat reduction without surgery. It has been clinically-proven to effectively diminish unwanted bulges and areas of excess fat with absolutely no downtime. It can treat the tummy, love handles, hips, waist, legs, back, lower and upper arms, muffin top, banana roll and even the double chin.
One session is often enough to see some improvement in the treated area. For more significant results, however, 2-3 treatments are recommended. It normally takes three weeks to start noticing fat reduction results and the final outcome can be expected 3-4 months post treatment.
CoolSculpting Performed While You Read or Take a Nap
The first step of the CoolSculpting procedure is a thorough assessment with an experienced medical professional. When the treatment starts, a vacuum applicator will be placed on the problem area while controlled cooling is deployed to the surface of the skin. It’s normal to experience an intense cold sensation as the fat cells are being frozen. This typically goes away after a few minutes and patients are able to relax and enjoy the treatment.
The applicator will remain attached for approximately one hour. During the procedure patients may read, listen to music, work on their laptop or even take a nap.
CoolSculpting fat freezing technology was accidentally discovered by Harvard University scientists over a decade ago by. They realised that once stubborn fat cells became frozen, they ruptured and spilled their contents into surrounding tissue. The lymphatic system then slowly and naturally removed the dead fat cells from the body. The process of exposing fat cells to very low temperatures is called cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting is a great treatment for reducing fat around the tummy, inner thighs, outer thighs, love handles (muffin top), back, lower and upper arms, chin/neck , knees, ankles and bra fat. In fact, most areas with stubborn, unwanted fat cells that don’t respond to diet and exercise can be effectively targeted with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is a Walk-in, Walk Out Treatment
Most people are pleasantly surprised with how little discomfort and downtime there is following CoolSculpting. Patients can return to work and resume their normal activities immediately after their CoolSculpting treatment. It’s possible to experience temporary side-effects such as redness or numbness, as well as minor swelling and bruising in the treated area.
Another major advantage with CoolSculpting is that results are permanent. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they will never return. To ensure long-term results, however, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and stick to a regular exercise program. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool but rather a body sculpting treatment.
Results can be seen as early as three weeks after the CoolSculpting procedure. Maximum fat reduction, however, can be observed after 12-16 weeks. Additionally, the body will continue to remove injured fat cells for approximately four months after treatment. Typically, the procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20-40%.
