CoolSculpting Body Contouring Treatments

If you work hard at eating well, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight, then stubborn body fat can be incredibly frustrating. Some areas, like love handles and upper arms, just don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. 

Fortunately, invasive surgeries like liposuction aren’t your only options for finally addressing your most frustrating areas. There’s also CoolSculpting®, an innovative, noninvasive procedure that uses the power of cooling to target pockets of fatty tissue. 

Read on to learn everything you need to know about CoolSculpting® for fat loss. We’ll cover how it works and who it’s right for. We’ll also break down how this unique nonsurgical treatment is perfect for zoning in on those fatty areas that just won’t respond to healthy eating and exercise. 

What Is CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is a patented fat reduction procedure that works by freezing fat cells, causing them to break down. The procedure received FDA approval in 2010 and has been administered millions of times. CoolSculpting® is safe, effective, and non-invasive, meaning the procedure does not involve entering the body or breaking the skin. 

The CoolSculpting® freezing process is known as cryolipolysis. Here are the steps involved in a cryolipolysis treatment:

  1. A gel pad is applied to the targeted pocket of fatty tissue
  2. A handheld device uses suction to pull the fatty tissue into its opening
  3. The fatty tissue is cooled to a temperature of between 30–40 degrees

Each treatment area is chilled for 30 minutes to one hour. The temperature is cold enough to break down fat cells but doesn’t harm the skin or muscle. 

What Does CoolSculpting® Feel Like? Does It Hurt?

At the start of a CoolSculpting® treatment, you may experience the sensations associated with cold temperatures, like tingling or stinging. After a few minutes, the area grows numb, then quickly warms up again after the treatment is over. 

The overall discomfort from CoolSculpting® is typically mild and occurs mainly during the first few minutes. Most people report that the procedure is not painful at all. 

How Does CoolSculpting® Destroy Fat Cells?

Fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin. Thus, in a controlled setting, it’s possible to freeze fat cells without freezing other tissues. After spending time in a frozen state, fat cells begin to break down. Gradually, this results in the reduction of fatty tissue in the treated area. 

Results aren’t immediate, but most clients begin to notice fat reduction within weeks or months of treatment. 

When CoolSculpting® destroys fat cells, those cells don’t return. However, the procedure doesn’t prevent new fat cells from forming. Thus, pairing CoolSculpting® with exercise and a healthy diet is the best recipe for achieving great results. 

Who Is CoolSculpting® Right For? 

CoolSculpting® is for fat loss, not weight loss. What’s the difference? Weight loss involves reducing a person’s overall body weight by reducing fat throughout the entire body. Fat loss procedures like CoolSculpting involve targeted fat reduction in specific areas. 

If you have persistent fatty areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise, then CoolSculpting® might be right for you. Specifically, CoolSculpting® targets pockets of subcutaneous fat—the type of surface fat that you can easily squeeze between your fingers. 

If you’re not sure if CoolSculpting® is a viable option for you, talk to your doctor or schedule a consultation with Chapter Aesthetic’s med spa treatment experts.
