The effectiveness of Coolsculpting technology freezing fat from a women's stomach

How Effective is Coolsculpting®?

Coolsculpting is known as the most effective non-invasive procedure for getting rid of stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.

The Science Behind Freezing Fat

How does Coolsculpting work? CoolSculpting technology safely applies controlled cooling to gently and precisely target and destroy fat cells underneath your skin without any effect on the surrounding tissues or organs. In the weeks following the fat freezing procedure, your body naturally processes those dead fat cells and eliminates them through your urine, leaving you with a long-term more sculpted you.

Discover just how effective the Coolsculpting treatment is for the following top 5 fatty areas on the body below.

Top 5 Areas for Freezing Fat

1. How Effective is Coolsculpting for Double Chin?

Unlike traditional invasive surgical techniques, the CoolSculpting procedure provides non-invasive fat reduction with no needles or surgical incisions. This makes it a perfect option for reducing the appearance of a double chin and achieving a sculpted chin and neck without the risk of scarring.

Coolsculpting on the chin provides little-to-no discomfort. Once the applicator attaches/suctions to the submental fat under the chin, it takes a few minutes for the area to numb from the cooling. Once numb, the remainder of the 45-minute procedure is pain free. Once the procedure is complete, patients describe the feeling left behind similar to a light sunburn.

In the weeks following the procedure, your body will be processing the dead fat cells, revealing results in as little as a few weeks. The most noticeable results are visible after about four months and are completely permanent with healthy diet and exercise.

2. How Effective is Coolsculpting for Back Fat?

CoolSculpting provides incredible back fat removal without surgery or injections. This makes it a perfect option for greatly reducing the appearance of back or bra fat and achieving a smooth, lean surface without the risk of scarring.

Fat freezing on the back provides little-to-no discomfort. Once the Coolsculpting machine attaches to the excess fat on your back, it takes a few minutes for the area to numb from the targeted cooling. Once numb, the remainder of the 45-minute to one-hour procedure is pain free. You simply sit back and relax while eliminating fat!

In the weeks following the fat freezing procedure, your body will process the fat cells and slowly reveal results. The most noticeable results are visible after about four to six months and are completely permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

3. How Effective is Coolsculpting on the Arms?

Arm fat, flabby arms, or “wings” can be embarrassing and make you look larger than you are. Coolsculpting is an extremely effective non-surgical solution to reduce arm fat without needles or surgical incisions. Because there’s no needles or knives used, Coolsculpting is the perfect option for reducing the appearance of flabby upper arms and achieving sculpted, lean arms without the risk of scarring or lengthy healing or downtime.

When receiving Coolsculpting on the arms, there’s minimal discomfort. In fact, it only takes a few minutes for the area to numb from the targeted, gentle cooling. Once you’re numb, the remainder of the 35-minute procedure is pain free.

In the weeks following the procedure, your body will slowly work to eliminate the dead fat cells through your urine. As your body works to remove these cells results will start to reveal— some in as little as a few weeks! The most noticeable results are visible after about four months and are completely permanent with continued healthy diet and exercise.

4. How Effective is Coolsculpting for Belly Fat?

Stubborn belly fat, the kind that just doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, can be removed without undergoing a knife. The CoolSculpting procedure not only reduces the appearance of abdominal fat but helps you achieve a beautifully sculpted stomach without the risk of scarring.

During the procedure, Coolsculpting on the stomach provides little-to-no discomfort. Once the applicator suctions in the submental belly fat, it takes a few minutes for the area to numb from the targeted, gentle cooling. Once you are numb, the remainder of the one-hour procedure is pain free. Once the procedure is complete, patients describe the feeling left behind similar to a light sunburn with side effects including redness, firmness, and slight swelling.

In the weeks following the procedure, your body will process and eliminate those now dead fat cells, revealing results in as little as a few weeks. The most noticeable results are visible after about four months and are completely permanent as long as you maintain a healthy diet with regular exercise.

5. How Effective is Coolsculpting for Hips and Love Handles?

Love handles are notoriously resistant to diet and exercise and can make you appear larger than you are. Because Coolsculpting can precisely target this hard-to-reach hip fat and eliminate it, it is extremely effective in reducing the appearance of love handles. Unlike traditional invasive surgical techniques, the CoolSculpting procedure provides non-invasive fat reduction with no needles or surgical incisions. This makes it a perfect option for reducing the appearance of fatty hips and achieving a sculpted hip line without the risk of scarring.

Coolsculpting on the hips causes little-to-no discomfort. After a few minutes of targeted cooling, the area goes numb making the remainder of the one-hour procedure practically pain free. Once complete, patients describe the feeling left behind similar to a light sunburn.

In the weeks following the procedure, your body will process and eliminate the now dead/collapsed fat cells, revealing slimming results in as little as a few weeks. The most noticeable results are visible after about four months and are completely permanent with a continual exercise and healthy diet.
