You’ve probably heard about CoolSculpting by now — it’s a revolutionary non-invasive body contouring procedure that helps eliminate unwanted fat cells in areas such as the stomach and flanks. But how does CoolSculpting work exactly?
CoolSculpting freezes unwanted fat cells
CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells from almost anywhere on the body by freezing them. An effective alternative to liposuction with fewer risks and complications, CoolSculpting uses rounded paddles to suction the skin and fat, similar to a vacuum. Then, while patients sit in a reclined chair for up to two hours, cooling panels crystallize fat cells. The surrounding tissue remains unharmed, however, since fat is more sensitive to temperature changes than skin. Pretty amazing, right?!?
Yes, CoolSculpting actually works
While the science behind CoolSculpting might seem like something out of a sci-fi movie, it’s actually legit. Tons of clinical trials have demonstrated that CoolSculpting is effective in reducing the number of fat cells. In fact, one CoolSculpting treatment can reduce fat cells by up to 25 percent. CoolSculpting works best on areas of “pinchable fat” or small, stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away with diet or exercise. It’s specifically designed for patients that have a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, and can help you maintain your figure (if that’s what you’re looking for).
So, what happens to all that fat? The body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells over the course of several weeks after treatment. And the more treatments you have, the more results you’ll see. The best part is that the results are permanent. Plus, CoolSculpting is safe. Most side effects are only mild and temporary.
