What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive body contouring treatment. During a CoolSculpting procedure, a customized adaptor is placed onto the treatment area where it freezes away the underlying fat. This process requires no anesthesia and can be completed quickly. CoolSculpting is the leading noninvasive fat reduction treatment. It is FDA-cleared and safe for most patients.
CoolSculpting is considered a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss treatment. This means that it is intended for cosmetic changes in the body’s appearance only. It is not a replacement for a healthy diet or exercise and is not generally recommended for those who are overweight.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to destroy fat cells. The device cools fat cells to such a degree that they are destroyed. The body will then naturally and safely process and eliminate the destroyed fat cells. This process does not harm the skin or surrounding tissues and is completely painless. After CoolSculpting, the fat cells will not regenerate. This means that results last long-term, provided that you maintain a stable weight through a healthy diet and exercise routine.
