A body contouring process that allows you to lay back and lose stubborn pockets of fat may seem too good to be true, but that is exactly what CoolSculpting® is. This non-invasive, non-surgical treatment triggers your body to start naturally flushing out fat. Since this is a gradual process, your improvements develop over time, just as they would through diet and exercise alone.

What Exactly Is CoolSculpting®?

Before discussing the benefits of the treatment, it is important to understand how it works. Two panels are placed on the target area. These panels are used to lower the temperature of that area to a point where fat cells cannot survive. Although you will feel intense cold for the first few minutes, this fades and no harm is done to your skin.

Once the fat cells reach a point where they crystallize and die, their contents will be flushed out. The body will move it toward the liver through the lymphatic system. Since your body does not create new fat cells after your teenage years, your results with this treatment can be permanent with a healthy lifestyle.

This treatment is well-loved with a very high patient satisfaction rate. Some of the reasons for this include:

Treatments Are Quick & Simple

While the time it takes to have your treatment done can vary based on the target area, it is generally an hour or less. Since there is no downtime, you can easily have CoolSculpting® done on your lunch break and immediately get back to your normal life.

It Is Effective in Many Areas

Different people have different problem areas. This is not an issue with CoolSculpting®, which can treat the belly, back, bra fat, upper arms, thighs, love handles, underneath the chin, and more.

Results Are Gradual and Natural

Unlike a surgical procedure, where it can be rather obvious you had help losing weight, CoolSculpting® will help you gradually drop the pounds. Your contours will appear in a very natural way.

Results Can Be Permanent

Fat cells, once destroyed, are not repaired or replaced. The treated area is very unlikely to gain weight in the future. That being said, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle so that new problem areas do not appear.

It Boosts Self-Confidence

One of the biggest benefits of this treatment has to do with the way it makes people feel. If you are someone that has tried diet and exercise without getting your desired results, this treatment can help get you out of that funk.
