What is CoolSculpting?

Learn more about what CoolSculpting is and how Boston’s top MedSpa can help you to get rid of your stubborn fat

You may have heard about it and are wondering what exactly Coolsculpting is. Well, CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis to give it its scientific name, is an innovative fat freezing treatment which targets specific areas of your body to effectively eliminate stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure which is non-invasive, yet provides fantastic and permanent results. The fat reduction achieved with CoolSculpting treatment can be similar to that seen after liposuction and for this reason, CoolSculpting is fast gaining in popularity.

How does CoolSculpting reduce areas of stubborn fat?

This fat removal body sculpting treatment uses a probe to apply a gentle suction to your bothersome area(s). A controlled cooling is then applied to the area(s), causing fat cells to become irreversibly damaged. These damaged cells are then naturally disposed of through your body’s own elimination processes. The removal of the damaged fat cells can take several weeks, so the initial results of treatment will only be seen around three weeks later and it can take up to six months to see the full effects.

The cool temperatures used during CoolSculpting treatment specifically target fat cells, causing no damage to surrounding skin, tissue and blood vessels. This means that CoolSculpting treatment is a safe treatment, which causes minimal, if any, side effects and requires little to no recovery time.

Different sized probes can be used to treat different areas of the body. CoolSculpting can treat many different, troublesome areas of the body, including your abdomen, back, thighs and sides.

As CoolSculpting treatment is an investment, you will be eager to ensure that the results that you achieve last for as long as possible. While CoolSculpting can provide you with the tool to effectively spot reduce and eliminate fat, maintaining these results will require a bit of extra work.
