Wish there was something you could do about those pockets of excess weight that stick around no matter how much you diet and exercise? You’re not alone. Many Americans are sick and tired of stubborn fat. The good news: there is a solution – and it doesn’t involve painful surgeries.

CoolSculpting is a fast, effective, non-invasive fat loss treatment that helps to slim and sculpt. With little to no recovery, you don’t have to make a big time commitment. In just one safe and comfortable treatment, you’ll see a noticeable shrink-down of your trouble areas.

In this article, we’ll explore the game-changing benefits of CoolSculpting, so you can decide whether or not this reliable, proven treatment is right for you. But first, what is CoolSculpting?

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared technology that leverages controlled cooling power to quite literally freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells. CoolSculpting is an alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction; instead of going under the knife and spending two or more weeks recovering, you can get back to normal activities almost instantly.

You don’t have to settle for second-tier results, either. CoolSculpting is not only safer and easier but also just as effective as surgical alternatives. The results are lasting, obvious, and guaranteed, and you don’t have to worry about scarring or damage to your skin and surrounding tissue.

CoolSculpting can be used to treat many parts of the body, including:

  • Belly
  • Lower back
  • Thighs
  • Sides (love handles)
  • Knees
  • Upper arms
  • Under the chin
  • And more

The treatment can also significantly minimize the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks, legs, and arms.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses a specialist cooling technique to target and kill fat cells – this process has been proven effective in several peer-reviewed studies. It works by cooling fat to around 12 to 19° F, triggering what’s known as apoptosis. Apoptosis is the body’s natural method of removing unwanted – and in some cases dangerous – cells. Fat cells wither and die, and your body’s immune system carries them away and flushes them out over time.

Just one session of this science-backed treatment can result in up to 25 percent fat loss from the target area. The final results are not fully visible for 12 to 14 weeks.

A closer look at the science behind CoolSculpting

Did you know that when we lose weight through diet and exercise, our fat cells are not eliminated from our bodies? Instead, they become smaller. These shrunken fat cells can expand again if we eat more or exercise less.

In contrast to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting reduces the actual number of fat cells in the target area, meaning they won’t come back again.

Of course, a healthy diet and regular exercise are vital aspects of a happy and long life, but they may not be the most effective means of long-term, targeted fat loss. This is why CoolSculpting’s popularity has skyrocketed by 823 percent in the United States since 2010.

Your most frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting can sound too good to be true. It isn’t. To ease any concerns or suspicions you may have, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions we get about this seemingly miracle treatment.

How many CoolSculpting sessions are required to see results?

Unlike alternative non-invasive treatments, most people achieve the results they desire after just one session. A single treatment will typically eliminate between 20 and 25 percent of the fat cells in the target area – a difference that is undoubtedly noticeable.

How many sessions you need will depend on several factors, such as the area being treated and your ultimate goal. You may require up to three sessions to reach the overall look you want.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

If you’re pain-averse, you’ll be happy to know that CoolSculpting is more or less a pain-free treatment. That doesn’t mean you won’t feel it. People generally report a suctioning sensation followed by a quick blast of intense coldness. It isn’t uncomfortable or unpleasant, with many choosing to read, scroll through their phone, watch videos, or even take a nap during their treatment.

When do CoolSculpting results become visible?

You want results fast, and with CoolSculpting, you will definitely notice some shrinkage and tightening in as little as three weeks after your treatment. However, the full scope of your results won’t be visible until the two-month post-treatment mark. Be patient because good things come to those who wait.

How long do CoolSculpting results last?

This is one of the chief benefits of CoolSculpting – results are permanent. They last forever.

Who is a suitable candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is non-invasive, meaning it’s suitable for most people with stubborn fat bulges across the stomach, back, and waist. That being said, it’s essential to consult your physician to determine whether or not this treatment is right for you.

What are the side effects of CoolSculpting?

For most clients, the side effects of CoolSculpting are so minimal that they return to their normal activities – including work – immediately after treatment. You may experience some of the following aftereffects in the targeted area:

  • Numbness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Firmness
  • Tingling

In some rare instances, the treated area may sting or feel painful.

How long does a CoolSculpting treatment take?

The CoolSculpting treatment of one area – such as the belly or lower back – takes about one hour. If you choose to have several sessions of CoolSculpting to enhance your results, you’ll need to wait between four and six weeks between treatments.

Why should I choose CoolSculpting over alternative treatments?

Everyone is unique. What might be right for you won’t be right for someone else. However, CoolSculpting offers many benefits over and above alternative treatments like traditional liposuction; CoolSculpting is non-surgical, non-invasive, permanent, and doesn’t require any recovery time. You can even drive yourself home after your treatment.
