What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a controlled cooling technology to reduce fat cells in specific areas of the body. It is an FDA-approved procedure that targets stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
During the procedure, a device is applied to the targeted area, which then freezes the fat cells underneath the skin. The fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other tissues, allowing for targeted fat cell destruction without damage to the surrounding tissue. Over time, the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through its lymphatic system.
The length of the procedure depends on the size and number of areas being treated. Typically, each treatment session can last anywhere from 35 minutes to an hour.
After the CoolSculpting patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment, including work, exercise, and other daily activities.
The body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through its lymphatic system, and patients can expect to see a reduction in the treated area's size and contour.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
Who Qualifies for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is best suited for individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
The procedure is not intended for weight loss or obesity treatment and is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are individuals who have good skin elasticity and have realistic expectations about the procedure’s results.
Patients with certain medical conditions, such as cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, may not be suitable candidates for CoolSculpting due to the risk of complications. It’s essential to discuss your medical history with your healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.
