You may be thinking “Okay we get it, its fat reduction but how exactly does it work?”
CoolSculpting enlists a freezing technology known as Cryolipolysis to freeze stubborn fat cells that don’t seem to go away with diet or exercise. During the hour long procedure, the fat cells are frozen in a controlled manner, which means it gets rid of fat without harming any of the surrounding tissue.
From the CoolSculpting website:
"As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you may typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you'll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment. After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes."
Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?
Both men and women have utilized CoolSculpting to get rid of stubborn bulges of fat. The best way to know if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting is to book a consultation with your physician.
How many treatments are necessary for me to actually see results?
Every person’s body is different, prior to getting your treatment you will have a consultation with your physician to set up an ideal treatment plan. Some patients need one treatment, while others require 2-3, it all depends on the treatment area.
Speaking of treatment areas, what can I use CoolSculpting for?
CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat in the following areas: abdomen, flanks (love handles), inner thigh, outer thigh, and more recently the double chin!
You may be wondering where the fat cells go once they’ve been frozen. In the months following your CoolSculpting procedure the fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Patients have reported seeing results as early as 3 weeks, but maximum results can be seen 2-3 months post treatment. Because the treatment is non-invasive, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately.
Will my results last forever?
The treated fat cells are gone for good once expelled from the body. However it is necessary to maintain a healthy weight, excessive weight gain can cause new fat cells to form again.
Has anyone I know gotten CoolSculpting?
You’d be surprised to know that celebrities like reality-TV star Gretchen Rossi, supermodel Molly Sims who is actually the brand ambassador for CoolSculpting and many others have tried and loved the results!
