    You’ve likely heard of fat-freezing technology and specifically CoolScultpting. The treatment uses low temperatures to freeze fat cells, killing them off, and letting your body naturally excrete them- permanently! Sounds amazing, right? But does it really work?

    Yes, CoolSculpting Does Work

    Short answer, yes! CoolScultpting is an FDA approved method for non-surgical, permanent fat removal. It’s proven to work on many body parts including: lower abdomen, upper abdomen, flanks (love handles), bra fat, back fat, chin (double chin), arms, legs, above the knees, and under the buttocks.

    No, CoolSculpting is not for Everyone

    Longer answer, CoolSculpting is not for everyone. It is not used to treat visceral fat, or fat that’s below the muscles. That means if you are tackling a beer belly that feels firm and not squishy, it’s likely CoolSculpting will not work for you. On the other hand, if you are dealing with subcutaneous fat, the squishier pockets of fat that lay on top of your muscles, CoolSculpting can help. Consultations are free, and we are always happy to help you determine if the treatment is right for you.

    How CoolSculpting Works Best

    In order to get the results you want, you will most likely need to do multiple cycles on the same area. We call this treating to completion. Since we’re removing about 20% of the fat cells in the area, it may take multiple rounds to get the fat reduction you are looking for. Also important to note, while the fat cells removed from the CoolSculpting procedure are permanently gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t expand the ones left behind! In other words, it’s still possible to gain fat after the treatment, especially if you aren’t living a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise. Lastly, give it some time! While some people see results starting almost instantly, others can take up to 3 months to see the full results of their treatment. It's important to come back in for a follow-up after your treatment so that our CoolSculpting Specialist can assess the results, and see if you need to continue with another treatment, or if you have reached your goal. Want to know if CoolSculpting will work for you? Come in for a complimentary consultation and find out if you are a CoolSculpting candidate!
