Will CoolSculpting Help Me Lose Weight?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that has become hugely popular in recent years. It is a virtually painless procedure that reduces unwanted fat with little to no downtime. A typical CoolSculpting treatment takes approximately 45 minutes, so it’s easy to schedule a lunchtime appointment and then go right back to work.

Will CoolSculpting Help Me Lose Weight?

CoolSculpting will not help you lose weight, because it is a fat reduction treatment that is designed to remove isolated pockets of diet resistant fat. However, although CoolSculpting is not intended for weight loss, it will help you lose inches in the treated areas. Here’s how.

How CoolSculpting works

CoolSculpting reduces fat using cryolipolysis, which is essentially a process of spot-reducing stubborn pockets of fat using cold temperature.

When the CoolSculpting device is placed over the targeted area, the fat cells exposed to the cold temperature crystallize and die. After CoolSculpting treatment the fat cells are expelled by the body over the following 2-3 months. When this process is complete, patients will notice some circumferential reduction in the areas treated.

Weight loss vs fat reduction

When you lose weight the fat cells shrink in size, but there is no change in the total number of fat cells in the body. In contrast, CoolSculpting reduces the fat cells in the targeted area by approximately 20-25%, resulting in a trimmer, slimmer body. Fat cells treated during CoolSculpting are gone for good.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA approved for treating under the chin, flanks, abdomen, bra fat, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and underneath the buttocks.
