How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
You are born with a specific number of fat cells in your body. As you gain and lose weight, the fat cells expand and reduce, which results in the bulging or flat appearance of our skin. Working out and eating healthy tends to reduce the size of fat cells, but some stubborn areas of fat persist.
Using cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® freezes the fat cells without affecting healthy tissue. After applying a gel, your provider will attach the device to the target area. For 30-45 minutes, the machine freezes the fat cells.
In the next 3-4 months, the damaged fat cells are filtered through your body’s natural removal system. You may need more than one session to see ideal results.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting® Treat?
CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved to treat the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, and under the chin. CoolSculpting® may treat other areas, but those areas are the only ones clinically proven to reduce fat.
