CoolSculpting: Does It Work?

Wouldn’t it be fantastic to be able to wave a magic wand over your most frustrating “problem areas” and make unwanted fat vanish once and for all? As it turns out, that’s not actually the far-fetched fairytale it might sound like.

Thanks to an innovative new treatment called CoolSculpting, you can finally get rid of stubborn fat to achieve the slim, toned figure you’ve always wanted – no surgery required.

When you take a closer look at the science behind this FDA-approved fat-burning treatment, it’s easy to see why so many people are turning to CoolSculpting. Originally developed as a solution to belly fat, CoolSculpting has become an effective option for individuals who want to target fat on various body areas, including the chin, arms, thighs, hips, and buttocks. Think of CoolSculpting as your magic, fat-erasing wand, except it’s not magic; it’s scientifically-proven science!  

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an innovative fat removal treatment that uses cold temperatures to break down fat cells. 

Known as cryolipolysis, the process is used to achieve highly targeted fat loss results in a controlled setting. The CoolSculpting wand/applicator literally freezes fat cells (without damaging any surrounding skin or blood vessels), and your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the cells. 

CoolSculpting can be used in several areas, including:

  • Chin
  • Jawline
  • Thighs
  • Stomach (abdomen)
  • Upper arms
  • Underarms
  • Flank
  • Buttocks/under the buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Back/along bra line

CoolSculpting Procedure

Before beginning CoolSculpting, we’ll apply a protective gel to the target area. Then, it will be time to set up the applicator(s). Usually, large applicators are used for the lower body, while smaller ones are preferred for the upper body, chin, and similarly small area. 

We’ll place the applicator(s) on the target area, and the cooling process will begin. Each treatment takes about 35-45 minutes, and your total number of treatments depends on your desired results. Most of our patients describe the feeling as a gentle tugging, sometimes with a tingling sensation (like when your fingers get very cold on a winter day). Afterward, a quick massage helps to support optimal results.

CoolSculpting recovery requires little to no time, and you’ll be able to return to your normal activities. Some people experience mild soreness for a few days afterward, similar to slightly sore muscles after a tough workout.

Who Is It For?

CoolSculpting is recommended for individuals who want to get rid of specific areas of fat but are already at (or near to) their ideal body weight. Even though CoolSculpting gets rid of fat, it’s not designed for significant weight loss.

CoolSculpting Effectiveness

A quick scan of peer-reviewed, clinical studies about CoolSculpting and its signature fat-freezing technique, combined with its FDA approval for treating nine different body zones, provides a solid answer to the common question: does CoolSculpting really work?

Yes, CoolSculpting can be a highly effective solution for getting rid of stubborn body fat. For many individuals, it can even offer smoother, more consistent results than may be possible with more invasive options. And when you consider that CoolSculpting doesn’t require you to go under the knife, the potential payoff is even more impressive.

Keep in mind that, in order to be effective, CoolSculpting is recommended for individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight. It’s not designed to be a weight-loss tool; but rather, a treatment to trim body fat for a firmer, more toned appearance.
