How CoolSculpting Works

This procedure is becoming more and more common and is now known as the world's leading non-invasive fat reduction procedure. During the procedure, it targets and removes fat cells. Once these fat cells are frozen, they are eventually destroyed and removed naturally from the body, which removes the fat. This is an ideal  procedure for people who can't seem to remove fat through diet and exercise, since it can be focused to target whatever area is troublesome. It is an FDA-approved procedure that offers patients natural-looking results in only a matter of weeks.

How is CoolSculpting Compared Against Dieting & Exercise?

There is no such thing as a "one-size-fits-all" when it comes to any fat removal procedure. CoolSculpting has the ability to target stubborn fat areas, but it does not treat obesity or general weight gain. That is why we recommend you to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen after the treatment. To get the best results, this procedure should be used as an addition on top of the dieting and exercise you are already performing. That way, the stubborn fat areas have more difficulty returning and your body will look great, which in turn makes you feel great. And feeling great makes it much easier to diet.

Is CoolSculpting Different Than Liposuction?

In a word: Yes. While liposuction is a cosmetic fat removal procedure, just like CoolSculpting, it is also a surgery. For liposuction to be performed, patients must be put under anesthesia. This involves a tool being placed into the skin, which then is used to remove the fat in a certain area. And because it is a surgery, there is always the chance of infection or scarring. However, with CoolSculpting, the procedure can be performed in an office without invasive surgery, which leaves no scarring and has little to no recovery time after it is performed.
