Non-invasive fat reduction has become increasingly popular, and there are a variety of procedures to choose from, including the revolutionary CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is an innovative way to get rid of stubborn fat, because it treats fat cells by freezing them. But does fat freezing really work.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses a system of controlled cooling to break down fat cells. The fat-freezing technology is known as cryolipolysis, and works on the principle that fat cells are more temperature sensitive than the surrounding cells, nerves, blood vessels, and tissue. Therefore, the CoolSculpting device is able to specifically target the fat cells, without harming the skin or underlying tissue.
The technique can be used to treat fat on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and upper arms, in addition to bra fat, back fat, and fat beneath the buttocks and under the chin. CoolSculpting treatment takes about 1 hour.
Does Fat Freezing Work?
Yes fat freezing with CoolSculpting does work, and most people that have done the procedure have had a positive outcome. Patients generally experience a mild fat reduction in the treated area after the procedure, about 25% on average.
CoolSculpting can produce good results for the right candidate. However, it is not a major fat reduction procedure, so it should not be seen as a weight loss fix.
CoolSculpting is intended for people that are at a stable weight, but have pockets of stubborn fat that they’ve been unable to reduce with diet and exercise. It’s a good treatment for removing the belly fat or bra bulge that will make your clothes fit better (learn more).
