CoolSculpting uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis. It works by placing a roll of fat into two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. A 2009 study looked at the clinical efficacy of cryolipolysis. The researchers found that cryolipolysis reduced the treated fat layer by as much as 25 percent.

Do home CoolSculpting devices work?
At- home CoolSculpting devices do not work, and should not be attempted, because there is skill and technique involved with performing the procedure. Fremont Laser & Skin Care professionals undergo hours of training, are licensed, and perform the procedure on clients multiple times a day.
How is CoolSculpting done?
Procedure for CoolSculpting During the treatment, the healthcare provider will apply a gel pad and applicator to the targeted area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. The provider will then move the device over your skin while administering suction and cooling technology to the target area.
How long does it take for CoolSculpting to work?
It is important to understand that CoolSculpting does not deliver immediate results. As your body gradually metabolizes the damaged fat cells, you’ll notice the treatment area become smoother and tauter. It typically takes about 3 to 4 months for the full results of CoolSculpting to become apparent.
Is CoolSculpting permanent?
CoolSculpting is clinically proven to produce permanent results. Once the treated fat cells have been frozen through cryolipolysis, they die. The body’s natural reaction is to remove these dead fat cells through its natural elimination process.
Does CoolSculpting work on belly fat?
Yes. CoolSculpting was originally designed to be used to reduce belly fat, which is why one of the most common areas for treatment is the abdomen.
Can you do your own CoolSculpting?
Because not everyone can afford CoolSculpting and it isn’t covered by insurance, some people have tried to copy the procedure at home using ice and other frozen products. This is definitely not recommended. Attempting CoolSculpting at home is not only ineffective, but also potentially dangerous.
Is CoolSculpting a waste of money?
It then becomes a waste of money and is disappointing- patients need to seek appropriate help. Like any procedure or treatment in Plastic Surgery, patients have to be appropriate candidates. CoolSculpting only affects fat.
Why CoolSculpting is bad?
Researchers have found that a common side effect of CoolSculpting is pain, stinging, or aching at the treatment site. These sensations typically begin soon after treatment until about two weeks after treatment. The intense cold temperatures that the skin and tissue are exposed to during CoolSculpting may be the cause.
Does fat come back after CoolSculpting?
People often ask if after CoolSculpting, does the fat grow back. This is an important question for those wondering how long does CoolSculpting last. No, the fat will not come back. Nor will the body create more fat cells to replace those eliminated via the fat freezing treatment.
Is one session of CoolSculpting enough?
In most cases, you only need one CoolSculpting treatment per area. However, some people might need a follow-up treatment if they want additional results after several months. Treatment takes a few hours or less, with no required downtime. Talk to your prospective provider about specific costs prior to your procedure.
Does CoolSculpting leave loose skin?
Though CoolSculpting is not guaranteed to improve skin elasticity (skin tightness), CoolSculpting does not leave sagging skin. If your main concern is excess skin after dramatic weight loss, a cosmetic surgery such as a tummy tuck may be required.
How many inches do you lose with CoolSculpting?
If you are trying to eliminate unwanted fat from a small area, you may lose half of an inch at most. If you are eliminating unwanted fat from a large area, like your chest or stomach, you may lose two or three inches of fat.
What’s the downside of CoolSculpting?
The common side effects are those most frequently endured after CoolSculpting procedures, but on occasion people experienced the following more severe problems: Extreme pain around the treated area. Severe skin numbing. Bloating along the contact area.
Why does my stomach look bigger after CoolSculpting?
PAH causes a gradual enlargement of the treated area. It occurs when the stimulus (the freezing of fat cells) activates a reactionary process in the fatty tissue that thickens and expands the fat cells rather than breaking them down and allowing the body to process and remove them.
Which has better results CoolSculpting or SculpSure?
With SculpSure, one session is more than enough to notice a significant improvement in your appearance. The end result might be the same with CoolSculpting, but the sessions are longer, and you will require at least two or three of them. That makes SculpSure both cost and time efficient.
