What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the brand name for a fat-freezing method that aims to get rid of stubborn fat in certain parts of your body. The method is called cryolipolysis. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved it in 2010.
- FDA-cleared, noninvasive body contouring technology
- Eliminates up to 20-25% of treated fat cells for good in 9 different areas
- Targets stubborn fat in the areas that bother you the most
Cryolipolysis isn’t surgery and doesn’t use needles. The device holds the part of your body your doctor wants to target between two paddles. The paddles cool quickly and your doctor leaves them in place for about 35 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time, the process destroys about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the area that’s targeted.
The final results may not show up for a few months, but you may start to see some changes within a few weeks. Your immune system clears out the dead fat cells slowly over this time.
