How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® is an effective alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures, like liposuction or tummy tucks, for reducing and eliminating unwanted fat and excess skin. Unlike these invasive and often painful traditional methods, CoolSculpting is a quicker outpatient procedure, in which our team at Achieve Body Sculpting uses freezing technology to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat.

The results can be quite satisfying, particularly for a procedure that requires no surgery, no anesthesia, no incisions, and no post-operative recovery time. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure, but it does sculpt your body.

What you can expect at your CoolSculpting appointment

During your procedure, we use a special CoolSculpting machine and applicator to essentially freeze the fat in problem areas around your body. Our technicians first apply a clear gel pad to your skin, which acts as a barrier between your skin and the applicator. The applicator uses freezing temperatures to safely break down fat cells, which your body then discards on its own.

You may feel a pulling or tugging sensation from the applicator, but the discomfort is minimal.  After your procedure, you can expect full results within four to six months, at the latest, with an average of 20% fat reduction.

Why CoolSculpting is so beneficial

CoolSculpting is officially branded and FDA-cleared. Generally, appointments take around an hour and don’t require any recovery time. There’s also no damage to your skin, cells, or underlying tissue. Your body essentially just discards the frozen fat cells on its own.

With CoolSculpting, you don’t feel pain, but rather a cooling sensation. At worst, some people report feeling a bit sore, much like the tenderness you’d experience after an intense workout.

What the studies say about CoolSculpting

Studies indicate that CoolSculpting works as an effective fat-reducing procedure. For example, a 2009 study found that cryolipolysis — the technical name for this fat-freezing procedure — reduced the treated fat layer by up to 25%.

And CoolSculpting is popular, too. Since its clearance by the FDA in 2010, CoolSculpting treatments have increased by an impressive 823%. That’s why we at Achieve Body Sculpting love using it to give our patients the sleek, striking figures that they’ve always longed for.

Don’t wait to get the perfect body

CoolSculpting really can provide you with the stunning figure that you’ve always wanted. Even with diet and exercise, you may still have stubborn fat deposits, like love handles, muffin tops, and bulging arms. Coolsculpting shapes you in ways that exercise may not, with far less time and effort.

Our team at Achieve Body Sculpting is committed to providing our patients with the confidence and fresh energy that having a spectacular figure can bring. Call us or conveniently schedule an appointment on our website today.
