CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgical and non-invasive procedure for fat reduction that delivers results without plastic surgery. It’s a clinically-proven alternative to liposuction that effectively diminishes unwanted bulges and areas of excess fat. 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 best results, however, 2-3 treatments are recommended. It normally take three weeks to start seeing some fat reduction results and the final outcome can be expected 3-4 months post treatment.
The first step of the CoolSculpting procedure is a thorough assessment with an experienced medical professional. When you come in for treatment, an applicator will be placed on the problem area using a light suction 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 dissipates 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.
Harvard University researchers discovered CoolSculpting technology over a decade ago by. The breakthrough “fat freezing” treatment involves exposing fat cells to very low temperatures, a process called cryolipolysis or cryotherapy. It was discovered that once stubborn fat cells become frozen they die and are naturally removed by your body’s lymphatic system.
CoolSculpting is a great option for targeting excess 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.

There is no recovery time needed following CoolSculpting. Patients can return to work and resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some people may experience temporary side-effects such as redness or numbness, as well as minor swelling and bruising in the treated area.
Once the fat cells have been destroyed with CoolSculpting, the results are permanent and they will never return. Patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise to sustain a long-term outcome. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool but rather a body sculpting treatment.
Most patients should see results as early as three weeks after their 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%.

Any discomfort during and after CoolSculpting is mild and well tolerated by most people. Unlike other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting doesn’t involve any needles or surgery. You will be made very comfortable by laying down or reclining during the procedure. As CoolSculpting begins, you will feel a mild suction and cooling sensation that only lasts several minutes.
If you have unwanted fat cells then CoolSculpting is a great alternative to surgical fat reduction. It’s a minimally-invasive way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that persist even with a healthy diet or exercise. Keep in min that CoolSculpting is not an effective treatment for cellulite.
Most patients achieve excellent results with one session; however, multiple treatments in the same area may be required for optimum fat loss. If you choose to have any additional sessions, they can be performed one week after your initial CoolSculpting procedure. Multiple areas can be treated on the same day.
CoolSculpting is a very safe and effective procedure. It’s normal to experience some temporary side-effects such as redness, numbness or tingling in the treated area. Some minor swelling and bruising post-treatment can also occur.
Fat freezing can remove fat from many areas of the body. This includes the abdomen (tummy), back, arms, waist, knees, love handles, chin (submental area) and neck, as well as the inner and outer thighs.
