Does freezing fat cells with CoolSculpting work?
It can almost seem like magic how CoolSculpting treatments can transform the body without breaking the skin or requiring a lengthy recovery period. It is a proven alternative to more traditional body contouring methods, like liposuction, with the right candidates. So, how does it work? The CoolSculpting treatment system uses the science of cryolipolysis by freezing fat cells to destroy and remove them from the body. When the targeted fat cells are frozen, they crystalize and die off or liquefy. The body then identifies any dead fat cells, which will be eliminated as waste through a natural process, leaving behind a more sculpted, fit-looking appearance.
How much fat is removed with CoolSculpting?
A patient's overall fat reduction varies depending on the individual patient, their body type, and the amount of unwanted fat being treated. Studies have shown that a single CoolSculpting session can eliminate up to 20 – 25% of targeted fat cells without freezing or damaging surrounding tissue. It is an effective fat reduction solution if patients maintain their current or ideal body weight. It is a safe and effective body sculpting method that requires no anesthesia, no incisions, and no extensive downtime. Patients may experience some bruising and skin sensitivity after each CoolSculpting treatment, but, usually, any side effects dissipate within a couple of weeks.
Does CoolSculpting provide long-term results?
When Beverly Hills, CA men and women gain or lose weight, the pre-existing fat cells in their bodies shrink or expand. CoolSculpting can reduce up to 25% of unwanted fat cells by effectively freezing fat cells in a single target area. For patients wanting a higher percentage of fat reduction, multiple treatments may be required. With the innovative CoolSculpting system, the overall number of targeted fat cells will decrease over the next several weeks, providing patients with long-term results. However, any remaining fat cells can still expand or grow if patients gain additional weight afterward. Patients must continue with a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise to continue enjoying their new contoured, sculpted results.
What are the best areas for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the first body contouring treatment that uses a controlled cooling technology (cryolipolysis) to reduce pockets of unwanted fat by freezing fat cells that reside close to the skin's surface. It is that visible, "pinchable fat" commonly seen in the following areas:
- Underneath the buttocks
- Upper arms
- Double chin
Even though the advanced CoolSculpting treatment system provides long-term results, they are not immediate. It can take 3 – 6 weeks for patients to begin to see visible results. However, the final outcome of freezing fat cells with CoolSculpting will occur about 2 – 4 months after the last treatment, so be patient.
