Like many women and men, you likely have self-proclaimed trouble spots that are preventing you from looking and feeling your best.
Fortunately, a noninvasive fat removal procedure like CoolSculpting can help you get rid of these bulges once and for all, without surgery, pain, or a lengthy recovery.
If you are interested in taking the next step with CoolSculpting, here’s everything you need to know about fat freezing.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring procedure designed to permanently eliminate unwanted pockets of fat.
The treatment is noninvasive and does not involve incisions, cutting, anesthesia, sutures, or downtime. For this reason, it is an excellent alternative to liposuction.
How Does Fat Freezing Work?
When it comes to everything you need to know about fat freezing, the way that CoolSculpting works is especially important.
During the treatment, a curved applicator suctions stubborn bulges and uses a patented cooling technology to freeze and kill subcutaneous fat cells.
While liposuction manually extracts fat cells, CoolSculpting causes them to die a natural cell death. They are then gradually cleared from the body through the lymphatic system.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?
Fat freezing can be performed on virtually any part of the body. It is currently FDA-cleared to treat the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, banana roll, back, upper arms, under the chin, and under the jawline.
Experienced CoolSculpting specialists may also perform fat freezing off-label on other problem areas like the chest, knees, and underarms.
Does Fat Freezing Hurt?
According to most patients, fat freezing is an easy and fairly painless process. You may experience a mild pulling or tugging sensation as the applicator is secured, followed by the device’s cooling effects.
But, discomfort is temporary, and the targeted area will become numb in a matter of minutes.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Within four-to-six weeks of CoolSculpting, men and women can typically note visible slimming and improved contours. They also find that their clothes look and fit better.
What Is the Treatment Time for Fat Freezing?
Depending on the treatment area, fat freezing can take 35-60 minutes per application site.
