How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

Are you curious about trying out CoolSculpting® treatments for yourself – but not exactly sure how they work?

You’ve come to the right place. We’ll give you the scoop on how CoolSculpting® works, including how to tell if you’re a good candidate for this exciting fat reduction treatment!

Here’s How CoolSculpting® Works

CoolSculpting® uses a patented freezing energy that’s designed to harmlessly penetrate dermal tissue. This allows the energy wavelengths to hit fat cells clustered beneath the skin’s surface, causing them to freeze over and crystallize. At this point, the crystallized fat cells “break,” which causes them to leak and shrink in size.

Over a period of weeks, the body flushes out the shrunken fat cells, leaving behind noticeable body contouring results.

CoolSculpting® is completely non-invasive, so there’s no need for anesthesia or stitches. Most CoolSculpting® treatments take an hour to perform, and are done in-house by a CoolSculpting® technician.

Candidates for CoolSculpting® Treatments

The best candidates for CoolSculpting® treatments are those individuals who are within 15 to 30 pounds of their ideal weight and have stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise.

Ideal candidates should also have good skin laxity to support their results. Those people with looser skin may want to combine their CoolSculpting® treatments with non-surgical skin-tightening procedures.

When to Expect Your CoolSculpting® Results

CoolSculpting® results take about eight to twelve weeks to appear after your last treatment (you may need a minimum of three treatments). Once they appear, they’ll stick around, provided you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle.

Let’s take a closer look at other steps you can use to maintain your CoolSculpting® results:

  • Eat a healthy diet that contains lean proteins and lots of healthy veggies
  • Get plenty of exercise
  • Drink lots of water, especially in the days after your CoolSculpting® treatments (water helps to flush out the damaged fat cells)
  • Massage the areas that have been treated with CoolSculpting® to help promote further fat cell breakdown
  • Schedule maintenance treatments as needed
*Individual results may vary.
