CoolSculpting is a safe and effective procedure that has helped more than one million people feel better about their appearance.
How CoolSculpting works
The CoolSculpting procedure is based on proven science that demonstrates a predictable response to cells targeted with intense cold temperatures. Technically, the process is called cryolipolysis. At precise temperatures, fat cells become crystallized and are eliminated.
What to Expect
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment. No needles, no anesthetic, no recovery. During your treatment session, a cloth is placed between your skin and the cooling panels that target unwanted fat. After vacuuming the treatment area up into the panels, the device is turned on. Initially, the suction may feel a little intense. Cool temperatures may cause a tingling sensation before tissue numbs for the duration of your treatment.
Because cryolipolysis is a natural process of elimination, the results from CoolSculpting treatment occur gradually over several weeks. In the first week after treatment, the target area may look slightly swollen. Rest assured, the flatter, smaller body you want will be revealed in a short time. During your follow up, you and your doctor can discuss your results and the potential benefit of further treatment.
