CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that eliminates stubborn fat, i.e., the unwanted subcutaneous fat cells that are nearly impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting involves freezing the unwanted fat cells to facilitate expulsion from the body, making the targeted area look slim and contoured. CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss procedure, but it’s an excellent means of removing targeted fat pockets on the body to achieve your desired contours.
CoolSculpting is done to eliminate the stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat cells that don’t respond to traditional weight loss methods, such as exercise and dieting. Everyone has certain parts of the body with excess fat cells. Even if you maintain an extremely healthy lifestyle, you may still have excess fat cells. The most common areas for stubborn fat are the abdomen, lower back, thighs, and arms. CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fat cells, making your body look chiseled and contoured.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting works on the scientific principles of cryolipolysis, discovered by two doctors from Harvard Medical School in 2005. It was discovered that fat cells can be frozen faster than other surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting channels cold temperature to freeze and kill the unwanted fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. The fat cells are crystallized and eventually metabolized by your body, making the targeted area look slimmer. This technique doesn’t involve scarring or downtime.

The Onset & Longevity of Results
You will start noticing the results of CoolSculpting after 2 to 3 weeks, with continued improvements for up to 12 weeks. You can speed up the onset of results with regular exercise and a healthy diet. Depending on your goals, you may need additional sessions for optimal results. Once gone, the fat cells can’t return, but you must maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent the remaining fat cells from expanding.
