The CoolSculpting fat-freezing technology is a non-surgical solution to reduce stubborn fat pockets. This technology is FDA-cleared to treat 9 different areas of the body – visibly reducing fat under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms.
Fat freezing happens through a process called cryolipolysis, which uses cold temperature to break down fat cells. Because fat cells are particularly susceptible to cold, the fat cells freeze but the skin and other structures surrounding the fat cells are left uninjured. The injured fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body over a 4 to 6 months process.
CoolSculpting is one of the most popular nonsurgical fat reduction treatments, with hundreds of thousands of procedures performed worldwide and does not require any anesthesia. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment and is best suitable for individuals who are at their ideal weight looking to get rid of stubborn fat in one or more of the FDA cleared areas.
