People who are at or near their ideal body weight, but who still have trouble getting rid of fat stubborn spots on their body may want to look into CoolSculpting. The medical term for this treatment is cryolipolysis, which just means fat freezing because of how this treatment kills fat cells. Learn more about this treatment and CoolSculpting results to see why it has become so popular in the last decade.

Why is CoolSculpting used?

As a non-invasive treatment, CoolSculpting helps with body contouring, but is used for those with trouble spots rather than for those who are heavily overweight. Since 2010, CoolSculpting treatments have increased by 823% as they are regarded as a great permanent solution for reducing unwanted bulges in 9 FDA-cleared areas.

What are typical results?

After your treatment, you may experience some side effects like pulling/tugging on your skin and cramping, but this means the treatment is working. You will see about 20-25% of the fat in your targeted treatment area start to disappear! Because it takes your body some time to break down the dead fat cells, you can expect final CoolSculpting results by week twelve. The best part is that after the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good! Even if you gain some weight back, it will distribute evenly and not bulge like it used to. It is possible that your aesthetician could recommend a second treatment, so make sure to discuss your full plan.

Freeze stubborn fat away without surgery for good and feel great from every angle. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.

The results from some diets and fat reduction treatments may leave you swinging back and forth between “before” and “after” versions of yourself. But the CoolSculpting® procedure is a non-surgical, safe and effective way to reduce unwanted fat.  So take a good, long look at yourself.
