What is CoolSculpting?
CoolScupting® is the world’s first and leading noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment for permanent fat reduction and weight loss that produces liposuction-like results with little discomfort. Developed and perfected by physicians at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, its safe, patented cooling technology actually freezes fat away—with no surgery or downtime.
The Boston-based physicians who pioneered the CoolSculpting procedure observed that some children who ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. They realized that the popsicles were actually freezing and eliminating pockets of fat cells. These observations led them to the insight behind Cryolipolysis®—the idea that cold can target fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—and the proven science that is CoolSculpting.
How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting technology targets and freezes fat cells underneath your skin—and then, once frozen, the cells die. Over time, your body recognizes that these cells are dead and naturally starts to remove them, leaving behind a more sculpted you. One treatment generally produces visible results, and more treatments can be added, as desired. Each CoolSculpting treatment session takes 25 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated.
CoolSculpting Candidates and Treatment Areas
CoolScupting is ideal for men and women who have stubborn pockets of fat, who are within 15 to 20 pounds of their ideal body weight, and who have a healthy diet and exercise routine. Treatment areas include:
- Neck/double chin
- Bra line
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Flanks/love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
CoolScupting removes an average of 25 to 40 percent of fat per treatment area—sometimes producing even more dramatic results. Approximately 97 percent of patients will see results after just one treatment, and the best results will appear two to four months after treatment.
