How Does Fat Freezing Work?

CoolSculpting is actually the brand name for the noninvasive technology calledcryolipolysis, also known as fat freezing. In the procedure, an aesthetician uses a small, vacuum-like applicator that uses extreme cold, which kills or freezes fat cells.   This non-surgicalbody contouring procedure does not use any needles, nor or there any surgical incisions, and it doesn’t require anesthesia. You’ll likely need three treatments to reach your aesthetic goals.

There’s no downtime, which is also fueling its popularity. And speaking of time – the treatments are fast. You can get it done on your lunch hour. Most patients have no reactions, while few might experience a little soreness, numbness, or mild bruising at the site, but otherwise, you're good to go.

CoolSculpting is FDA-Approved

CoolSculpting is the onlynon-surgical fat-reduction treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which cleared the treatment for several body areas, including:

  • Abdomen

  • Hips

  • Upper back (“bra rolls”)

  • Love handles

  • Upper arms (by the triceps)

  • Thighs (inner or outer)

  • Under the buttocks

  • Under the chin (double chin)

When Will I See Results?

It typically takes four to six months for your body to flush out all of the fat cells.

While you will not see instant results, you will notice a difference within three weeks after your treatment. The most visible results usually show after two months. CoolSculpting provides permanent results.

As we mentioned earlier, CoolScuplting is a fan favorite here, among women and men. Fat freezing has a high success rate, especially for people living a healthy lifestyle. But eating unhealthily and living a sedentary lifestyle will likely hamper your results.

Does Fat Freezing Really Work?

So, will freezing your fat really work? As always, individual results may vary, but overall, we think it works exceptionally well. But again – it’s not a weight-loss treatment and will work only if you’re serious about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
