Explaining the CoolSculpting Craze

Ever since the non-surgical method of body contouring CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010, this procedure has been consistently growing in popularity with both men and women. The procedure works by freezing fat cells, destroying them for complete elimination by the body without significant discomfort or downtime afterward. If you have never experienced CoolSculpting for yourself, there are some very good reasons why your friends are swearing by this “cool” procedure.


CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis or controlled cooling to destroy fat cells underneath the skin’s surface without anesthesia, incisions or an extended recovery period. This non-invasive method of body contouring is an excellent choice for patients with isolated deposits of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise. Unlike traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting allows you to head back to your daily routine as soon as the procedure is over. Improvement is gradual, making it look like you might be shedding extra pounds by your own efforts, rather than through a cosmetic procedure.

Proven Technology

CoolSculpting has been used in the U.S. for a number of years since its approval and in Europe and Canada even longer. In addition to positive results from clinical studies, this machine has proven its effectiveness through regular use on both men and women of all ages. While the technology is still considered innovative, its track record is well documented at this point. You can rest assured when you undergo CoolSculpting that its safety and efficacy have been proven time and time again.

Versatile Procedure

With the introduction of new applicators and expanded FDA approval, the versatility of the CoolSculpting device also continues to expand. Treatment areas for CoolSculpting now include:

  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Love handles
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Underneath the chin

With many treatment options provided by a single device, you can rely on the innovative technology and non-invasive nature of CoolSculpting to address areas of isolated fat nearly anywhere on your body.

Long-Lasting Results

CoolSculpting delivers results over time and usually after a series of treatment sessions. The concentrated cooling literally “freezes” fat cells, destroying them so they can be eliminated through the body’s natural processes. Because the fat cells are completely destroyed and eliminated, CoolSculpting is considered a permanent method of body contouring.

While treated fat cells are eliminated, remaining fat cells can enlarge over time if a healthy weight is not maintained after the procedure. If that occurs, you may need subsequent treatment sessions to eliminate those new fat deposits and maintain your positive results. However, if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise program, it is unlikely you will need any additional body contouring procedures once your full results have been achieved.
