How CoolSculpting eradicates unwanted fat

CoolSculpting freezes targeted fat cells, which triggers their natural cell death. As fat cells break down, your body goes to work clearing away the cellular waste. Your problem fat is permanently eliminated, and it’s all done without surgery or harming your skin.

Fat cells are more sensitive than your skin to the cold treatment. As a result, the controlled temperature of the CoolSculpting device freezes your fat long before it gets cold enough to harm your skin.

Body areas treated with CoolSculpting

We use CoolSculpting to get rid of a double chin and to remove fat in your abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, and back.

This type of body contouring is quite effective for pockets of unwanted fat, but it’s not meant for major weight loss. The best candidate for CoolSculpting is at or near their ideal body weight but with problem areas of fat that resist all diet and exercise efforts.

Determining your CoolSculpting treatment plan

During your consultation, we examine your unwanted areas of resistant fat and develop a customized plan. Each patient’s treatment plan depends on the number of body areas being treated and the amount of fat in each area.

One CoolSculpting treatment eliminates about 25% of the treated fat, so we use that to guide your plan and determine the number of sessions you need to reach your goals.*

During your CoolSculpting treatment

Each CoolSculpting session lasts about 35 minutes. During that time, you simply recline in a comfortable treatment chair, where you can relax, read, or catch up with your email.

To start your treatment, we place a thin gel pad over the targeted area and then position the CoolSculpting applicator on top of the pad. Turning on the device gently pulls the fat up into the applicator, holding it between two cooling panels.

You feel some tugging as fat is drawn into the applicator, and you initially feel the cold, but after about 10-20 minutes, the area becomes numb enough that you’re barely aware of the treatment.

After the applicator is removed, the cooled fat temporarily stays in a raised shape that resembles the inside of the applicator. We massage the area to help it return to its normal shape.

After your CoolSculpting treatment

One of the best parts about CoolSculpting — besides finally saying goodbye to your fat — is that you don’t need downtime. You can return to your daily routine as soon as your session is finished. You could even have your treatment during a lunch break and go right back to work.

You need to be patient while waiting to see your results because it takes time for all of the treated fat cells to gradually break down and clear out of your body. Our patients begin to see their new shape in a few weeks, and optimal results appear in about two months.*

You continue to see some improvement beyond two months, as the process of removing dead cells continues for about six months.
