The 411 on CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an effective and gentle treatment option that is designed to target stubborn fat cells beneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unharmed. It is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that permanently eliminates targeted fat cells through a controlled cooling process.

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a scientific approach that involves freezing fat cells to the point of elimination. This process exploits the fact that fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures than other cells.

When fat cells are cooled to a specific temperature, they crystallize and die. The body then naturally processes these dead cells and eliminates them, resulting in a more contoured appearance over time. Clinical studies have shown that CoolSculpting can reduce fat in treated areas by up to 20 to 25% after a single session​.

What Areas of My Body Can I Target with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is designed to treat as many areas of the body as possible using a variety of applicators. With this specialized approach, patients have the option of treating stubborn fatty deposits across the body, including the:

  • Chin and Neck
  • Love Handles
  • Upper Arms
  • Tummy
  • Thighs
  • Bra Line/Back Fat

But What Happens If I Gain Weight After I Have CoolSculpting?

During your CoolSculpting treatments, only the targeted fat cells will die and be removed from your system. While the fat reduction is permanent (e.g., the fat cells will not regenerate), weight fluctuations may affect your results. The remaining fat cells may shrink or expand based on your weight; however, you are unlikely to regain the fat in the treated areas or completely negate your results.

That being said, maintaining a consistent, stable weight and leading a healthy lifestyle with a nutrient-rich diet and plentiful exercise is the best thing you can do to enjoy your results for as long as possible. Learn more about maintaining your CoolSculpting results in our related blog post.
