CoolSculpting is the brand name for a fat-freezing method that gets rid of stubborn fat in certain parts of your body. The method is called cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting FDA approved to treat 9 different areas of the body. Scientists came up with the idea for cryolipolysis by studying what happens to fat during frostbite. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin. This cryolipolysis device cools your fat to a temperature that destroys the fat while leaving your skin and other tissues unharmed. Cryolipolysis is not surgery and doesn’t use needles.
The CoolSculpting applicator holds the part of your body that is targeted and quickly cools to a safe temperature anywhere from 35-45 per applicator. During that time, the process destroys a percentage of the fat cells that is being targeted. The final results may not show up for a few months but you will start to see some changes within a few weeks. Your immune system clears out the dead fat cells slowly over this time.
