What Is CoolSculpting?
Sometimes stubborn fat can be impossible to lose no matter what lifestyle changes you make, which is where CoolSculpting comes in. This non-surgical procedure targets areas with stubborn fat tissue by freezing the cells to induce natural elimination.
Fat removal procedures that use lasers, sonic waves or surgery can actually damage skin or muscle tissue in the process because it is much harder with these techniques to target only fat cells. However, CoolSculpting is controlled by temperature, which means the technician is able to exclusively target unwanted fat cells without causing any harm to surrounding tissue.
This patented procedure has also been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a non-invasive fat reduction technique.

How Does It Work?
This body sculpting procedure, developed by scientists at Harvard, uses a cooling process that targets the fat cells underneath the skin. The cells are frozen to the point that they are destroyed, and over time, the body naturally disposes of them. The reason that CoolSculpting is capable of damaging only fat tissue is because these cells freeze at a higher temperature than other tissue cells.
Unlike other procedures of its kind, CoolSculpting only takes one hour per application site, and after treatment, you can typically jump right back into your daily routine. Plus, after just one visit, you will notice a marked reduction of fat. Over the course of 90 to 120 days, your immune system will remove roughly 25 percent of the fat layer.
While the results of this treatment are permanent – meaning that destroyed fat cells won’t return – there is no guarantee for prevention of weight gain in the future. In order to maintain optimum results, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle.
