CoolSculpting: The Innovative Way to Eliminate Unwanted Fat
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting represents a non-invasive method for fat reduction that uses controlled cooling to eliminate obstinate fat from some body areas. CoolSculpting knows as cryo lipolysis, meaning “cold-induced fat cell destruction.”
If you have a problem with fat on a specific area where fat cells tend to accumulate as the chin and neck or arms and tights, coolsculpting may help you achieve the results you desire. It is the best solution to target stubborn fat cells in various body parts.
The treatment is Food and Drugs Administration-approved and is safe and effective in reducing persistent fat cells in specific body areas.
How does CoolSculpting work?
Coolsculpting, as a non-invasive treatment, doesn’t require surgery and anesthesia. Procedure works by using controlled cooling on the fat cells to freeze and destroys targeted fat cells.
The fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than the surrounding tissue and by applying controlled cooling, the treatment can effectively freeze and kill the fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
During the treatment, the device is placed in the targeted area to deliver controlled cooling to the underlying fat cells to freeze and destroy them.
After a while, the body’s immune system naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells from targeted areas through the lymphatic system.
Your body needs several weeks to absorb the dead fat cells and clear them through metabolic processes.
What to Expect During a CoolSculpting Treatment
The CoolSculpting procedure began with an initial consultation with a qualified person about your goals, expectations, and overall health.
After that, the healthcare provider will examine the areas of the body you want to target and decide whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, and define a personalized treatment plan to destroy fat cells.
At the beginning of the procedure, the qualified person will clean and mark the targeted area. The treatment starts with applying a gel pad and placing an applicator in the target area. The coolsculpting device uses suction to pull the targeted area of fat into a cooling panel and during this, you may feel a tugging and cooling sensation. This feeling lasts only a few minutes, and after that, the treated body area becomes normal as usual.
During the treatment, you may feel pulling, aching, intense cold, and other sensations, but in general discomfort is minimal in the treated areas.
The treatment typically takes one hour per targeted area, dependent on the size. During the treatment, the patient can read, watch TV or relax.
After the treatment is complete, the therapist performs a massage on the treated area to break up the remaining fat cells and increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
For the best and most visible result, you need to wait about six months and follow the necessary amount of defined treatment. Occasionally, you will need more than one treatment for the best results.
Your therapist will schedule a follow-up appointment to determine the patient’s progress and define whether additional treatments are necessary.
The Benefits of CoolSculpting procedure
CoolSculpting procedure brings a lot of benefits, some of them are:
CoolSculpting procedure is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that does not require incisions, anesthesia, or surgery, and for most that is very important, especially for those who are not a good candidate for surgery.

Targeted fat reduction.
CoolSculpting produces results on specific body areas with persistence and long-term fat deposition as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and arms.
Patients choose CoolSculpting because the procedure brings natural-looking results that improve over time and last a long after treatment. Also, CoolSculpting doesn’t require a recovery period.
CoolSculpting results are long, some studies show that the effect of the fat removal procedure can last nearly a decade, and each session can decrease the number of treated fat cells by about 20%.
A safe, effective, and comfortable procedure.
CoolSculpting is well-known as a safe procedure that does not cause pain with minimal discomfort and with a high patient satisfaction rate.
Coolsculpting is an excellent option for those who practice a healthy diet and exercise but are still struggling to eliminate stubborn fat in certain body areas.
It helps people to feel better in their skin with the desired look and to achieve a more toned and sculpted appearance.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
The CoolSculpting cost varies depending on different factors, including the area you want to treat, the number of treatments required, and the therapist’s location and experience.
Smaller areas like the chin or neck can cost less than others because it requires less application.
CoolSculpting is considered a cosmetic treatment, and insurance can not covers it.
Clinical studies have shown that CoolSculpting can reduce fat in treated areas by up to 25% with just one treatment session.
These results are long-lasting, with many patients maintaining their fat reduction for several years.

Is CoolSculpting Right for You?
Whether or not CoolSculpting is right for you depends on your personal goals, health status, and preferences. CoolSculpting is generally safe for most people but you should avoid it if you have some medical conditions, such as cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, and problems with cold temperatures.
It is important to make clear that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment and if you are significantly overweight it is probable that this treatment won’t give you the results you want.
In some cases, with larger amounts of fat, a more invasive method such as liposuction will provide faster and more effective results.
Also, you need to have realistic expectations from the procedure and follow a defined number of treatments to achieve results.
However, as mentioned above, we always recommend initial consultations.
How CoolSculpting Compares to Other Fat Reduction procedures
CoolSculpting is one of the many fat reduction treatments available today that offer the best option for those who want a non-surgical approach with minimal downtime and good results.
Other fat reduction treatments include:
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction method to remove fat from the body with a vacuum-like device. Liposuction may treat a larger body area than CoolSculpting, but it is also a more invasive technique with a recovery period.
Laser lipolysis is a non-invasive technique that uses laser energy to kill fat cells. Compare to CoolSculpting, it may be less effective for larger areas of fat.
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and other substances into the skin to dissolve fat cells. It is not as effective as CoolSculpting for targeting specific areas of fat.
Ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasound energy to break up fat cells, which the body eliminates, and it is also less successful for large areas than CoolSculpting.
Coolsculpting is a powerful non-invasive procedure that can help you fight against unwanted fat cells.
Even if you practice a healthy diet and exercise regularly and you are near the ideal body weight, you can still have some fatty tissue resistant to diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting helps to eliminate unwanted fatty tissue such as double chin, banana roll, fat on upper arms, and inner and outer thigh areas. You can always combine coolsculpting with Swedish massage techniques to keep your body in the desired shape.
