You exercise and eat the right foods, but you still have those patches of stubborn fat. If you’re looking for a quick solution, CoolSculpting is where you can freeze your fat away just in time for summer. Life is full of miracles, so keep reading to find out how it works.
Rather than opting for liposuction to remove unwanted fat under the skin, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that will give you long-term results. It works by gently freezing your fat cells. They become crystalized and die, and your body disposes of the fat through the liver within 1 to 3 months.
Approved by the US FDA in 2010, seven million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed worldwide with a high satisfaction rate. Scientifically known as cryolipolysis, it can remove areas of fat you may have had since your teens.
CoolSculpting can remove fat from your abdomen, upper arms, thighs, back, under the jawline and chin, legs and buttocks (banana roll), and flank (love handles).
Note that CoolSculpting is not for everyone. It is not for weight loss or to treat obesity. To be a good candidate, you should be almost at your ideal weight.
Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, no anesthesia, needles, or incisions are needed.
A gel is applied to the area chosen and a handheld device moves over the skin simultaneously using suction and cooling technology. It targets the subcutaneous fat which is found just under the skin. You may feel pinching or pulling during the process, but there is little to no pain. Surrounding tissue, muscles, nerves, and fat layers are left intact.
Each treatment takes approximately one to three hours depending on the size of the area(s) being treated.
