There are plenty of ways to lose weight and trim some inches off your waistline. But, depending on your body type, there may be some areas where the fat just refuses to disappear no matter how much weight you lose.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that eliminates stubborn fat without surgery or other invasive methods. This highly-effective and scientifically-proven treatment uses the precise application of cold temperatures to reduce fat.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than skin cells. CoolSculpting (also known as cryolipolysis) applies this principle, using the exact temperature needed to freeze and kill fat cells without damaging your skin or other surrounding tissues.
This treatment is applied with a special hand-held device. When the device is held to your skin, it sucks the fatty portion into a small chamber, which cools the fat cells. The cold will most likely make the area feel numb, although some patients do report a cooling sensation.
After your procedure, your body will slowly start to dispose of the dead fat cells. On average, the treatment area will decrease in size by about 20% over the next 4 to 6 months.
