How Coolsculpting Works

If you want to lose fat, there is only so much you can do beyond diet and exercise. Medical solutions include gastric bypass, liposuction, and tummy tucks, all of which require surgery and are usually reserved for extreme cases. Fortunately, developments in science have created a relatively new, non-invasive method for shedding unwanted fat. With CoolSculpting, it’s possible to lose those last couple of pounds of stubborn fat or finally achieve the curves you want, without having to go under the knife.

How CoolSculpting Works

Using a process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting works to permanently destroy fat cells with specific and precisely targeted cold temperatures. The device is fine-tuned to produce low temperatures that don’t affect the surrounding cells and tissue, so only the fat cells beneath your skin are destroyed. Additionally, the cold causes a natural numbing effect, eliminating the need for anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

During the procedure, a device is placed in the target area, such as the lower abdomen or thighs. The area is suctioned and gently cooled to very low temperatures, which subsequently kills up to 25% of the fat cells under the skin. In the weeks following a CoolSculpting treatment session, the destroyed cells are naturally flushed out by the body’s lymphatic system. As long as the patient maintains their weight through healthy dieting and exercise, they should enjoy their new, toned figure for many years to come.


There are many benefits to CoolSculpting compared to other surgical options, such as liposuction. First of all, it requires no incisions, anesthesia, or extended downtime for healing. And with an average treatment time of about an hour, you can even have the procedure done on your lunch break and go right back to work.

Another benefit of CoolSculpting is that it can be used virtually anywhere on the body where there is unwanted fat without having to worry about visible scarring. This procedure is also good for contouring and shaping, not just losing inches off the waistline. Once the procedure is completed, the patient should see results within a few weeks, while it may take several months until changes from liposuction become noticeable.

Candidates for CoolSculpting

Unfortunately, CoolSculpting isn’t for everyone. This procedure is meant for stubborn pockets of fat only. Therefore, patients who are significantly overweight or have a lot of loose skin will achieve better results from procedures other than CoolSculpting.

Due to its relative safety and lack of long-term side effects, almost any healthy adult can receive the treatment. CoolSculpting is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women, people with a history of hernias in the target area, anyone with chronic pain, or anyone with a condition that prevents them from walking at least one mile a day.
