How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works by freezing your fat cells:

  1. We mark the area you want to have treated
  2. We turn on the suction
  3. Set the timer to 60 minutes
  4. As your fat cells are freezing you can read a book or magazine, watch television, talk on the phone, take a nap, etc.
  5. We remove the suction
  6. We gently massage the area that was treated to break up the crystallized fat cells (making it easier/faster for your body to absorb them)
  7. We send you on your way and in about 3 weeks you can see some results!

CoolSculpting is a simple procedure that treats your excessive fat by freezing the fat cells which destroys them. As the fat cells are destroyed, your body recognizes the need to release them. Over the course of a few weeks and months, your body releases the fat cells and you should notice a reduction in fat in the area that was treated.

Ironically, fat cell freezing was first studied in children. Scientists wanted to understand why some children grew up with dimples in their cheeks. As they studied various factors that caused this, they  realized that children who frequently ate frozen popsicles had dimples. They discovered this was because the frequent exposure of the frozen pop to the children’s  cheeks resulted in the death of fat cells around their cheek area which showed in the form of dimples.

In the same way, CoolSculpting works by using that same method of freezing unwanted fat in various areas of your body. When the fat is frozen, the body lets it go.
