One of the most common questions physicians are asked is, “how does CoolSculpting work?” The CoolSculpting treatment works by a process called cryolipolysis. The fat cells in the treated area are crystalized (frozen) to the point where they are damaged and die – a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells.
After a CoolSculpting treatment, a deep-tissue massage is done to mobilize the fat that has been released from the damaged fat cells. The two-minute massage can help improve the lymphatic drainage of the fat.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
Do you have stubborn fat that just won’t go away, no matter how much you exercise? This is where a CoolSculpting treatment comes in. It’s important to understand that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss technique, but a way to help reduce pesky, unwanted fat. CoolSculpting is safe and non-surgical procedure, meaning there is little to no downtime after treatment. Because the procedure – done at a doctor’s office – reduces fat in treated areas by about 20%-25%, it can help patients achieve their long-term goals.
