How Does CoolSculpting Work

It all started with some Harvard researchers observing children eating popsicles. They noticed that the children frequently got dimples in their cheeks where the frosty treats had frozen pockets of fat cells and left dimples in their place. The idea that cold could target fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue was the inspiration for CoolSculpting®, also known as cryolipolysis. 

CoolSculpting® first got its FDA-approval for the reduction of fat in 2010, it has become one of the most popular non-invasive options for fat reduction. It has truly been a game-changer in the body sculpting world.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® technology crystallizes fat cells which are then flushed out of the body over time through the body’s own natural processes. Because it is non-surgical and has no downtime, it is popular among people who do not want to resort to surgical procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks.

About How CoolSculpting® Works

CoolSculpting® treatments begin with a free consultation in which our staff will assess your problem areas to determine how many treatment sessions you will need, the timeline for those treatments, and the cost of your treatments. Once you begin your sessions, you will find that they are comfortable and convenient to your schedule.

During a treatment, a technician will place a gel pad on the area being treated to act as a barrier between your body and the CoolSculpting® device. The device will then be cooled to a specific temperature and placed over the gel pad. It then targets the areas of fat to be treated and freezes those cells without damaging the surrounding organs, nerves, blood cells, and tissue. A typical treatment session lasts about one hour per treatment area.  Once the fat cells have been frozen they are eliminated from your body through your natural metabolic process.
