What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is currently the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure in the world. This cutting-edge treatment uses the gentle power of controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate excess fat from nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Double chin
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
Because this treatment eliminates fat cells through entirely non-invasive and non-surgical means, it is far more comfortable, relaxing, and effective than many other body contouring methods, with studies showing 95% of patients reporting high satisfaction with their results.
How Does it Work?
The cells, tissues, and other structures of the body have different freezing points. Once a structure reaches its freezing point, it begins to break down and is eventually removed by the body. CoolSculpting® takes advantage of this biological reality because fat cells have a significantly higher freezing temperature than many of the body’s other components, allowing them to be safely frozen without compromising the health of the surrounding skin cells and blood vessels.
During a CoolSculpting® procedure, a CoolSculpting® applicator is placed over the patient’s desired treatment area. Cooling temperatures are delivered to fat cells over the course of an hour, slowly destroying them in a process called Cryolipolysis®. While side effects like numbness, redness, bruising, swelling, and tingling are possible, these usually subside shortly after each session.
Because it can take time for the fat cells that have recently undergo Cryolipolysis® to be removed from the body, patients should expect their results to appear gradually. Typically, the first improvements can be seen after three weeks, with the most dramatic changes taking place after two months.
