How Does CoolSculpting Work to Remove Fat?

Let’s face it: You work hard to keep your body looking healthy and strong.

But when it comes to fat removal, your hard work isn’t creating the type of results you’re looking for. No matter how much you diet and exercise, you’re still having trouble whittling down fat around your waistline, your upper arms, or even underneath your chin.

That’s why it’s time to try CoolSculpting – the best non-surgical solution for getting rid of stubborn fat!

Let’s take a closer look at how CoolSculpting works to reduce fat, including how to tell if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatments.

How Does CoolSculpting Work for Fat Reduction?

FDA-approved CoolSculpting reduces fat by targeting these cells with patented freezing energy. This energy penetrates the dermis and hits the fat cells clustered beneath the subdermal tissue, causing them to crystallize and eventually become damaged.

These damaged cells shrink over time, resulting in noticeable inch loss at the treatment site.

Best of all? You’ll never have to worry about those treated fat cells again, as the body’s metabolic processes permanently remove damaged fat cells.

Does CoolSculpting Work on All Fat?

CoolSculpting works on all fat cells, making it a highly flexible and innovative treatment. CoolSculpting is approved for treatment on multiple body areas, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Bra fat
  • Thighs
  • Armpit fat*
  • Underneath the chin*
  • And more

*These areas are treated with CoolSculpting Mini, which uses a smaller device handle than with traditional CoolSculpting technology.

How Do I Know if CoolSculpting is Right for Me?

You’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatments if you have stubborn body fat that won’t respond to your diet and exercise routine. Candidates should be within 15 to 20 pounds of their ideal weight.

Keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution; additionally, it cannot prevent the formation of future fat cells, so it’s important for candidates to continue to follow healthy habits.
