What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is an advanced body contouring procedure that uses freezing temperatures applied to specific target areas to safely and effectively freeze away fat cells so that your body eliminates them naturally. CoolSculpting® is a painless and non-invasive procedure that requires no anesthesia or downtime, and the results of the procedure are long term because the treated fat cells are gone for good.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® relies on the natural fact that dramatic changes in temperature affect fat cells. CoolSculpting® is a simple and effective, painless and non-invasive procedure that uses a cooling device to gently kill off fat cells by freezing them. Your body will naturally eliminate these dead cells over time, so you will see a gradual process of natural weight-loss with increased contouring and toning benefits that will continue for several months following the procedure.

What are the advantages of CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® can help you eliminate inches of stubborn fat from such problem areas as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, arms, flanks, and thighs, by eliminating fat cells while simultaneously tightening muscle tissue and defining the body contour.  CoolSculpting® is one of the least invasive body contouring procedures in the cosmetic industry, with virtually no adverse effects to worry about.  Because CoolSculpting® is performed without incisions or surgery, there is no scarring and no downtime. CoolSculpting® also achieves a process of ongoing natural weight loss for several months as fat cells melt away gradually over time. CoolSculpting® is a totally safe procedure that produces natural-looking, long-lasting results with no side effects or downtime.

Is CoolSculpting® suitable for anyone?

Even though CoolSculpting® is highly effective and has been determined safe for almost any healthy adult. CoolSculpting is ideal for adults who are within a few pounds of their ideal weight, who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but are plagued by stubborn bulges that don’t respond to diet and exercise.  CoolSculpting® is especially recommended for eliminating excess fatty deposits in the thighs, back, and belly.

How does CoolSculpting® compare with Liposuction?

The primary difference between CoolSculpting® and Liposuction is that CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure, so it produces less dramatic results than liposuction.  While CoolSculpting® eliminates bulges and fatty deposits, liposuction achieves a much more dramatic level of contouring and sculpting. CoolSculpting® eliminates about 20 percent of fat cells from the treated area, while liposuction may extract up to 70 percent of fat cells from the area.  Conversely, CoolSculpting® is far less invasive than liposuction, providing effective results without incisions or downtime. “Treatment to transformation” with CoolSculpting may require more than one treatment.
