How CoolSculpting Reduces the Appearance of Stubborn Fat

Diet and exercise are the cornerstones of maintaining a healthy body. However, there are certain areas of fat inside the body that often resist even the most rigid of exercise regimens. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary cosmetic dermatology treatment that can help to eliminate areas of fat on the body for a slimmer, more sculpted figure. The Cryolipolysis Concept Cryolipolysis refers to the use of cold temperatures to selectively damage fat cells beneath your skin. This concept is the basis of CoolSculpting, allowing your dermatologist to use the CoolSculpting apparatus to target and eliminate fat beneath your skin without the need for invasive procedures or any incisions at all. Through the application of cold at a specific temperature to the parts of your body you want to improve, cryolipolysis causes the fat cells to die and shrink before being flushed naturally from your body, resulting in a slimming effect. Because cryolipolysis affects only fat cells, your other tissues remain healthy and unaffected throughout this process. The CoolSculpting Process CoolSculpting is a fast and painless treatment that can be performed in approximately one hour. During this hour, you will sit or lie comfortably while your dermatologist uses the CoolSculpting machine to apply cold to specific areas of your skin. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting, meaning you can return to your normal daily activities immediately after treatment. After CoolSculpting treatment, the affected fat cells will slowly die and are eliminated from the body; your final results will typically be visible in two to four months. You can opt to receive multiple CoolSculpting treatments at an interval of two to four months if you want further fat elimination from the target areas.
