CoolSculpting 101—Non-Invasive, Fat-Freezing

What is CoolSculpting? 

By now you’ve heard of CoolSculpting—the fat-freezing, non-invasive procedure that gets rid of stubborn fat areas. Sounds great, right? Well, frankly, it is! 

CoolSculpting, also called cryolipolysis, is a medical procedure that helps get rid of excess fat cells underneath your skin. 

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that can:

  • Trim areas of stubborn, resistant fat
  • Help achieve your desired proportions
  • Reduce the appearance of saggy skin

If you stick to a healthy diet and exercise regularly, but still have fat pockets that won’t disappear, CoolSculpting might be right for you. 

What can I expect during treatment? 

During your procedure, a licensed practitioner uses a special tool to cool certain areas of your body. The device holds the targeted area between two paddles and cools quickly. It is left in place for 35 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes. During that time, the process destroys about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the targeted area. 

Will I see results right away? 

Your final results may not show up for a few months, after a few treatments. However, you may begin to see some changes within a few weeks. The dead fat cells are eliminated by your liver slowly during this time. 

What areas can I treat? 

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin

Is CoolSculpting safe?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has certified CoolSculpting as a safe medical treatment

CoolSculpting, however, is not for everyone, there are people who are not good candidates. While some practices might be motivated to sell as many treatments as possible, at Marshall Lifestyle Medicine we believe strongly that CoolSculpting should be done on ideal candidates who will see the best results. 

The best way to find out if you’re a candidate is to schedule a free consultation and talk to a provider who will professionally and thoroughly explain CoolSculpting to determine if it makes sense for you.
