CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that can help you shed stubborn areas of fat once and for all. But before undergoing treatment, you may have several questions about CoolSculpting efficacy and results. In fact, patients commonly ask us: Does fat freezing really work?
Continue reading to learn how CoolSculpting eliminates unsightly bulges and the kind of results that you can expect.
How Does CoolSculpting Remove Fat?
During a CoolSculpting treatment, targeted areas of fat are held between two cooling panels that apply extremely cold temperatures to underlying fat cells. In response to this focused cooling effect, fat cells crystallize and die.
The frozen and destroyed fat cells are then naturally processed and cleared from the body in the coming weeks and months.
Does Fat Freezing Work?
Fat freezing, also known as cryolipolysis, is clinically-proven to reduce areas of diet and exercise resistant fat. In fact, studies have shown that a single CoolSculpting treatment can eliminate up to 25 percent of subcutaneous fat in the treated area.
While some patients can achieve optimal slimming and contouring following one treatment, others may require 2 or more sessions to reach their body goals. At your initial consultation, you will receive a customized treatment plan detailing the number of recommended sessions.
Who Does CoolSculpting Work For?
In addition to wondering “Does fat freezing work?” many patients want to know who does it work for. The good news is that CoolSculpting is a highly inclusive treatment that can help a wide-range of women and men remove diet and exercise resistant fat.
Ideal CoolSculpting candidates are typically healthy adults that are at or near their target weight and are bothered by small, localized fat pockets.
With that being said, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure and is not indicated for the removal of large volumes of fat.
