What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting’s popularity is surging with more than 5 million procedures performed to date worldwide. The fat freezing procedure is popular among men and women who want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction to reduce stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment. It requires no surgery or stitches or downtime, so patients can return to the normal activities following a CoolSculpting treatment.

Fat Freezing works by exposing tissue to precisely controlled cooling. The subcutaneous fat cells below the tissue freeze, without harming the skin. Frozen fat cells rupture, triggering apoptosis, or cell death. The body’s lymphatic system collects the destroyed fat cells and processes them through the body, eventually excreting the fat cells in the form of waste.

CoolSculpting is FDA cleared as safe with minimal side effects. The fat freezing treatment is intended for healthy men and women who struggle with stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. Scientific studies show that CoolSculpting is incredibly effective at reducing the percent of fat cells that compose fat deposits. “Cryolipolysis For Noninvasive Body Contouring: Clinical Efficacy And Patient Satisfaction” published in the journal of Clinical, Cosmetic, Investigational Dermatology notes: “In clinical studies, cryolipolysis [the scientific name for fat freezing] was shown to reduce subcutaneous fat at the treatment site by up to 25% after one treatment.” This led the researchers of this study to join the overwhelming scientific consensus, saying “cryolipolysis is considered to be both safe and efficient with a high patient satisfaction rate.”

Fat Freezing in Action with The CoolSculpting Procedure

A CoolSculpting treatment begins by preparing the treatment area. Before your CoolSculpting treatment, you and your CoolSculpting specialist will customize a treatment plan that will deliver the best results for your body size and shape and desired outcomes.

Once your CoolSculpting specialist has marked out the placement of the CoolSculpting applicator, the specialist will cleanse your skin and attach a proprietary gel pad to the treatment area. The gel pad protects your skin from thermal injury.

An applicator is positioned over the treatment area. The CoolSculpting machine is turned on. Using a gentle vacuum mechanism, the underlying tissue is drawn up to rest between 2 cooling plates housed within the CoolSculpting applicator. These plates deliver precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area.

CoolSculpting cycles can be as little as 35 minutes, earning this fat freezing procedure its nickname as “lunch time lipo.”

Does CoolSculpting Hurt?

CoolSculpting is a well tolerated procedure that is non-invasive and requires no downtime. Most patients describe CoolSculpting as painless and spend the fat freezing procedure relaxing, playing on their phone, watching Netflix or even napping. Of course, individual experiences may vary. When patients do report discomfort, it is usually during the first few minutes of the treatment when the CoolSculpting machine is turned on an the tissue is first exposed to controlled cooling. This discomfort typically alleviates quickly. The patient receiving the fat freezing treatment in Insider’s CoolSculpting video describe the initial discomfort saying:

“The first 5 minutes was a little bit painful as my body was cooling the fat. It kind of felt like a little bit of suction with heat and cold at the same time, so it kind of felt like a burning sensation but now my body is completely numb in the area.”

Once the cycle of controlled cooling is completed, the applicator is removed. The tissue within the treatment area can look like a frozen bulge for the first minute. This is normal. Your CoolSculpting specialist then massages the treatment area to break up the frozen fat cells. And then you’re done. Your fat freezing treatment is completed and you can go about your normal daily activities.

The one disadvantage of fat freezing is results are not immediate, like they would be with liposuction. Rather, CoolSculpting mimics the appearance of natural fat loss. Following the CoolSculpting treatment, frozen fat cells are gradually metabolized by the body’s natural processes over the span of several weeks. Some patients may see results in as little as 4 weeks, but most patients see the complete reduction in fat within 8 to 12 weeks following their CoolSculpting treatment, although results may vary.
