CoolSculpting, also known as Cryolipolysis is a fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperature to break down fat cells. Unlike other types of cells, the fat cells are particularly susceptible to the effects of cold. As the fat cells freeze, the skin and other structures are usually spared from injury.
CoolSculpting is for individuals who wish to reduce a localized fat bulge which has persisted despite exercise and diet. The results are natural-looking which provide an overall smoother body contour that will make you feel your very best.
Individuals with poor tone or loose skin may not be suitable candidates for the procedure. The same goes for people with cold-related conditions, like cold urticaris, paroxysmal and cryoglobulinemia.
The goal of CoolSculpting is to reduce the volume of fat in certain areas of the body with some individuals opting to have more than one area treated or to treat one area more than once.
Areas that can be treated with Coolsculpting
- Flanks or Love handles
- Abdomen or stomach
- Double chin
- Bra area or Back
- Under the buttocks

CoolSculpting procedure is done without anesthesia. After an assessment of the shape and dimensions of your fatty bulge, an applicator of the appropriate curvature and size is chosen. The treatment area is then marked to identify the site for applicator placement. A gel pad is placed to protect the skin. Once the applicator is applied, the bulge is vacuumed into the hollow of the applicator. The temperature inside the applicator drops, and as it does, the area numbs. You might experience some discomfort from the vacuum’s pull on the tissue, but once the area goes numb, this tends to resolve.
During the procedure, you can watch tv, use your smart phone or read. After the treatment, which takes about an hour, the vacuum turns off, the applicator is then removed and the area is massaged as this can improve the final results.
Recovery and Results
You can go back to your normal activities as there are no restrictions after the procedure, but you might feel sore, as if you have had a work out.
With time as the treated fat cells shrink and die, the body naturally metabolizes them, eliminating the dead cells thereby leaving a more sculpted you. Diet and exercise reduce the fat cells in size but coolsculpting gets rid of the fat cells for good.
With each session the number of treated fat cells decreases by about 20%. Although noticeable results can be seen after just one treatment, you might need several treatment sessions to reach your goal of a sculpted body.
The results may be seen as early as 3 weeks after the treatment. However, the more dramatic results are typically seen after two to three month. The body will flush out the frozen, treated fat cells for a continuous period of four to six months after the treatment.
