Using advanced cooling, Coolsculpting eliminates stubborn fat cells that resist diet and exercise. While freezing away fat may seem too good to be true, the science is proven. Moreover, CoolSculpting before and after images, along with raving CoolSculpting reviews, demonstrate Cryolipolysis reduces fat without surgery or downtime.

The Fat Freezing Process

To begin the fat freezing procedure,  your CoolSculpting expert marks the treatment area. They then position a CoolSculpting applicator onto the bulge you wish to reduce. A gentle suction mechanism secures the applicator in place. The suction also draws fat cells to the surface of the skin for maximum exposure. When the fat freezing machine is turned on, exact cooling penetrates the treatment area. This causes the membrane of the fat cell to rupture without harming the skin or tissue. At the beginning of the treatment, you may notice a strange feeling or cold sensation in the treatment area. However, these sensations disappear within the first few minutes of your fat freezing process.  Most patients report a painless, even relaxing experience during the procedure.

Cooling cycles generally last 35 minutes yet may be longer depending on the applicator utilized. After your fat freezing treatment, your CoolSculpting technician massages the treatment area for one to two minutes. CoolSculpting requires minimal to no downtime. You’re welcome to resume your activities and/or exercise directly following the procedure.

Immediately following your fat freezing method, you may experience symptoms associated with an immune response in processing the destroyed fat cells. This may include tenderness, bruising, and swelling at the treatment site.  These CoolSculpting side effects are mild and dissipate in a few days.

What Happens to the Frozen Fat Cells?

CoolSculpting utilizes the immune system to collect and process the frozen fat cells out of the body.  This natural response typically takes several weeks; however, individual experience varies. Some patients see results in four weeks. However, most patients require 8 to 12 weeks to see the full benefits of their CoolSculpting benefits.
