What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that reduces stubborn areas of fat through a process known as cryolipolysis.
It’s designed to selectively apply very cold temperatures to fat cells in order to crystallize and destroy them.
In the weeks to follow, fat cells remnants are broken down and removed from the body via the lymphatic system. As a result of this process, CoolSculpting is able to eliminate 20-25 percent of fat in common trouble spots.
How is the Treatment Performed?
During a CoolSculpting treatment, a curved hand piece applies suction to the fat bulge and lowers tissue to four degrees Celsius.
Patients may find the initial five-to-10 minutes uncomfortable, but the area quickly becomes numb and free of pain.
How Long Does a CoolSculpting Session Take?
While treatment time can vary depending on location and size of targeted area, most CoolSculpting cycles can be completed in 35 minutes.
Accordingly, many patients elect to undergo fat freezing over their lunch breaks and return to work immediately after.
When Can Patients Start Seeing Results?
Within four-to-six weeks, patients can start seeing fat reduction and contouring of the treated area. By eight weeks, 90 percent of results are evident.
However, improvement can continue for up to three months.
Are CoolSculpting Effects Permanent?
Because CoolSculpting actually kills fat cells, rather than shrinking them, fat reduction is permanent. However, results are best maintained through a healthy diet and regular exercise.
