What is CoolSculpting®?

shirtless healthy athletic man is standing against light background CoolSculpting®, or cryolipolysis, is a procedure that removes excess fat from stubborn areas. It works by attacking fat cells (by freezing them), killing them so your body can break them down and flush them out naturally.

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure. That means it doesn’t involve cutting, numbing, or penetrating instruments. Which makes it a great option for people that want to look great with no downtime. In fact, your procedure can be done on your lunch break! CoolSculpting® is a fat reduction technique that targets fat in your body that might be hard in areas of the body that are difficult to get rid of. In fact, it’s a great alternative to liposuction.

CoolSculpting® is a trademark of a fat reduction technique called cryolipolysis. It has Food and Drug (FDA) approval. Most CoolSculpting® procedures take about 35-60 minutes, depending on the area one wants to target. There isn’t any downtime because there is no skin or tissue damage.

Some people report pain on the CoolSculpting® site, similar to what they may experience after strenuous exercise or a minor injury. Others report tingling, stiffness, tenderness, swelling, and itching.

After this procedure, it may take about four to six months for the fat cells to disappear from the body. During this time, the fat surface will decrease by an average of 20%.

Does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® and other types of cryolipolysis have great success and patient satisfaction.

However, people should know that the effect of the treatment only affects the target area for fat cell loss. It also does not tighten the skin.

Also, the method does not work for everyone. It works best on people who are close to their ideal body weight.


CoolSculpting® effectively removes stubborn fat areas. The body removes frozen and broken fat cells in 4-6 months.
