About CoolSculpting

The science behind CoolSculpting lies in a process known as cryolipolysis. During a CoolSculpting session, a specialized applicator is placed on the targeted area, delivering precise cooling to the underlying fat cells. This controlled cooling triggers a natural process called apoptosis, causing the fat cells to crystallize and gradually break down over time. [1] The body then naturally eliminates these treated fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and sculpted appearance.

What sets CoolSculpting apart is its ability to selectively target fat cells while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Fat cells, also known as adipocytes, are more sensitive to cold temperatures compared to other types of cells in the body. During a CoolSculpting treatment, the targeted fat cells are exposed to precisely controlled cooling, reaching a temperature that triggers their crystallization without causing harm to the skin, muscles, or other nearby structures.

The reason behind this selective freezing lies in the composition and structure of fat cells. They have a higher water content and a different lipid composition compared to other tissues. This makes them more susceptible to the effects of cold temperatures. Meanwhile, the surrounding tissues, such as blood vessels, nerves, and collagen fibers, have a different composition that makes them more resistant to the cooling process. As a result, they remain unharmed while the targeted fat cells undergo controlled destruction.

What Body Areas Can CoolSculpting Target?

CoolSculpting is a versatile treatment that can target various body areas, allowing individuals to address specific areas of concern. Some of the common body areas that can be treated include:

  • Abdomen – Reduce stubborn belly fat, including both upper and lower abdominal areas, to achieve a more sculpted midsection.
  • Flanks (Love Handles) – Target the sides of the waist to create a smoother and more defined waistline.
  • Thighs – Reduce excess fat leading to slimmer and more contoured inner and outer thighs.
  • Back and Bra Fat – Address fat deposits on the back, including the area around the bra line, achieving a more streamlined silhouette.
  • Double Chin – Treat submental fat, resulting in a more defined jawline and improved facial profile.
  • Upper Arms – Target and reduce unwanted fat in the upper arms to achieve more toned and sculpted arms.

The Procedure

The duration of the CoolSculpting procedure will vary depending on several factors, including the number of treatment areas and the specific applicators used. Each treatment session typically ranges from 35 minutes to one hour per targeted area. 

To ensure your comfort and protect your skin, a gel pad will be applied before placing the CoolSculpting applicators on your body. The gel pad acts as a protective barrier, allowing the applicators to safely and effectively target the desired treatment area. 

Throughout the CoolSculpting procedure, you will experience a series of sensations as the targeted area is being treated. Initially, you may feel a cooling sensation as the applicator is applied to the skin. This cold temperature helps to numb the area, ensuring your comfort during the treatment.

As the procedure continues, you may experience a pulling or tugging sensation as the applicator gently draws in the fatty tissue. This is a normal part of the process and indicates that the targeted area is being effectively treated.

During the treatment, you will be able to relax and engage in activities such as reading, listening to music, or even taking a nap. Our priority is to create a comfortable environment where you can feel at ease!

At the conclusion of each CoolSculpting treatment, the applicator and gel pad are gently removed from the treated area. Following this, a brief massage is performed on the treated area for approximately two minutes to aid in breaking up the targeted fat cells, enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment.
