Non-invasive body shaping treatments provide people with safe, non-surgical alternatives to liposuction. With the popularity of CoolSculpting rising, many interested people are asking, “What is CoolSculpting?” Read on to learn more about the #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment available and discover if it is right for you.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a popular fat reduction treatment that incorporates a cooling technology to eliminate fat cells. Ultimately, the extreme temperatures freeze the fat cells to death. This technology is known as Cryolipolysis. It was developed by Harvard scientists who noticed that fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures than surrounding tissue and skin cells. When exposed to precise cooling, the fat cells crystallize, and their membrane ruptures. This triggers the collection and disposal of dead fat cells from the body through the lymphatic system.

The discovery of Cryolipolysis led to the development of cooling technology or CoolSculpting. Treatments safely expose stubborn bulges to temperatures that freeze the subcutaneous fat cells without harming or damaging surrounding skin tissue.

What is CoolSculpting Intended For?

Cool Sculpting is a treatment for healthy men and women who struggle with built-up fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. Its non-invasive technology is safe and painless, making Cool Sculpting an ideal alternative to surgical liposuction. The most common treatment areas for Cool Sculpting include the abdomen and love handles, but patients can freeze stubborn bulges from chin to knees.

Cool Sculpting can treat the following areas:
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arm fat
  • Submental region (double chins and neck fat)
  • Knee fat
  • Back fat
  • The chest (Popular among men)
  • The armpits or bra bulge
  • Flanks or love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Banana rolls under the buttocks

What is CoolSculpting Not Intended For?

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. Instead, it is a body shaping treatment meant to reduce isolated areas of stubborn fat. Weight loss treatments shrink fat cells, whereas CoolSculpting eliminates the fat cell. Over several weeks, the dead fat cells are removed from the body in the form of waste. Traditional weight loss leaves the possibility of shrunken fat cells re-expanding if you gain weight. CoolSculpting treatments provide lasting fat reduction. Once the fat cell is removed from the body, it can never grow back.
