What is Coolscuplting and how does coolculpting work to help lose fat?

You hit the gym for hours every week. You hike Mount Woodson at least once a month. And you eat like a rabbit. So what’s with the bra bulge and the love handles? Ugh. It doesn’t seem fair that as hard as you work to stay fit, those little pockets of fat just won’t go away.

We hear you, and we can help—with Coolsculpting.

What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is your new best friend. This fat freezing procedure results in a 20-25% fat reduction in a given area. Think of it as a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. The results are milder than those you’ll get with more invasive procedures, but for someone like you who is looking to address specific areas of stubborn fat rather than overall weight loss or body sculpting, Coolsculpting may be the perfect solution. Treatment areas include:

  • Stomach/abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Double chin
  • Back (bra bulge)
  • Thighs
  • Beneath the buttocks
  • Male chest

And here’s more good news: During your Coolsculpting treatment, you get to sit back and scroll through your social media accounts or catch up on episodes of Stranger Things. After all the effort you’ve put toward your health and fitness, we thought you might like the sound of that.

How does Coolsculpting Work?

Your Coolsculpting treatment involves rounded paddles placed on the treatment area. Your bra bulge or love handles will be suctioned to the device, which targets your fat cells, cooling them to precise temperatures (above freezing, but lower than your body temperature) and destroying them for good. It takes about an hour per treatment area, and afterward, you can go about your business, with no downtime.

The science behind Coolsculpting is pretty simple. Fat freezes and dies at higher temperatures than the surrounding tissues, so the cooling technology is able to target only those stubborn fat cells and leave everything else undamaged. The fat cells crystallize and die. In the weeks following treatment, the body’s natural elimination process flushes out the dead fat cells, and voila! they’re gone for good.

Because each person’s body metabolizes at a different rate, the amount of time it takes to see results will vary. You may start to see changes in as early as 3 weeks, though peak results typically show around 8 weeks. Depending on your fat loss goals, you may need two or more treatments in the same area, but the body-slimming results will be permanent, as long as you maintain your weight and fitness level.

What Coolsculpting will not do

It’s important to understand that Coolsculpting is not a method of weight loss and is best used to enhance a healthy diet and exercise routine—not replace it. Coolscultping treatments target fat near the surface of the skin but cannot reach visceral fat. If you’re seeking more dramatic fat loss solutions, speak to a weight loss specialist.
