What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis is an FDA approved cosmetic procedure which helps patients achieve a decrease in body fat. One of the most sought-after benefits of this treatment is the non invasiveness.

This means patients don't have to undergo anesthesia, surgery, or deal with the incisions and healing which go with competing techniques.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting breaks down fat cells by using freezing temperatures. It should be noted the freezing temperatures used don't affect the other cells in the body, just fat.

Once the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, they are gradually broken down and removed from patients' bodies through the liver.

With that said, patients can have peace of mind knowing there aren't any risks present. From the skin to the underlying tissue, everything stays healthy.

What Areas Can Get Treated?

When it's compared to other weight loss procedures like liposuction, for example, CoolSculpting is limited in the areas of the body it can treat. CoolSculpting can remove fat deposits from the:

  • Thighs

  • Abdomen

  • Back

  • Buttocks

  • Flanks

  • Under the armpit

  • Beneath the chin and upper neck

Since CoolSculpting is fairly new, it is possible other parts of the body will be added to this list in the future.

Insight About the Procedure

During a CoolSculpting session, a body contouring specialist  will administer a handheld cooling device or vacuum directly above the part of the body where the patient desires less fat. If a patient chooses to have two different areas treated at the same time, they can benefit from DualSculpting. During DualSculpting, two handheld cooling devices will be used.

Once the CoolSculpting applicator is against the patient's body, the device will then pull the fat pocket between two cooling panels. This process is where the actual freezing of the fat takes place.

During a single CoolSculpting session, patients can have several parts of the body treated. If they are having the work done in one area, it will take 35 minutes. But, if they choose to have multiple body parts treated, the session may last between 2 and 4 hours.

While patients tend to experience a bit of pressure, cooling, or slight discomfort during a CoolSculpting session, there is no pain. Additionally, after the procedure is complete, there might be some tingling in the treated areas or some redness. These side effects don't last long.

What to Expect After a CoolSculpting Session

After a CoolSculpting procedure, it can take several weeks before a patient begins to see results. On average, the most dramatic results appear around two or three months afterward.

The extended wait time for results is because of the body's natural processes. Once the fat cells freeze, it takes a while for them to completely dissolve from the patient's body.

Although the fat cells that are frozen are destroyed, it takes some maintenance to keep the extra fat off after this procedure. For instance, patients should eat healthy foods and exercise in order for the results to last. If not, new fat cells can appear.

Risks and Side Effects

CoolSculpting is completely safe. Patients don't need to worry about risks with this procedure, but there are some minor side effects.

The side effects are temporary and include:

  • Skin sensitivity

  • Tenderness

  • Stinging

  • Redness

  • Small amounts of swelling

  • Tingling sensations

  • Bruising

  • Mild pain

  • Firmness

These side effects are common for patients in the first week or two following treatment. .

Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an excellent alternative to surgical body sculpting procedures for those patients who prefer not to go under the knife. But it may not be the best option depending on each patients' individual goals.

The information below will help with deciding if CoolSculpting is good for you:

Obese Patients

If a patient's body fat covers the majority of their body, they won't get the best results from CoolSculpting. Ideally, patients who are best fit for this procedure are within 30 pounds of their goal weight and still want to remove some stubborn fat.

The majority of the areas CoolSculpting treats are those which are difficult to target via traditional methods of exercise and dieting.

Pregnant Patients

If a patient is pregnant, she shouldn't look into CoolSculpting. Because the procedure destroys fat cells, it takes the resources from the mother's body away from the baby. For example, fat cells provide nourishment to fetuses and gives them cushioning from the mother's movements.

Additionally, there hasn't been much testing done on pregnant women to see whether fat freezing is safe.

Patients Who Have Had Recent Surgeries

Whether a recent surgery was cosmetic or another type, the body will need several months or more in order for it to heal 100%.

With that said, undergoing a CoolSculpting procedure soon after can cause complications with the patient's health. Not only can complications arise, the body simply isn't strong enough for maximum recovery. Discuss recent surgeries and procedures during your consultation.
