Blog: Is CoolSculpting® Worth It? The Benefits of Non-Surgical Fat Removal

3 Minute Read: 

Non-surgical body contouring procedures are gaining a lot of attention as the demand for cosmetic solutions to fix problem areas surges. 

But many wonder if the treatments are really worth it.

CoolSculpting® is one such procedure that is increasingly popular among healthy men and women with minor pockets of fat in various parts of the body.

It is an effective fat reduction procedure that does not involve surgery, incisions, or anesthesia, so it carries less risk than more invasive procedures, such as liposuction. With no downtime required, patients can get the treatment and return to their day-to-day activities, making it a convenient and often more affordable option for those with a relatively busy schedule.

If you have unwanted bulges anywhere in the body and have worked hard to tone up but nothing seems to change, CoolSculpting® may be the right solution for you.

How Can CoolSculpting® Help Me?

Many studies have been performed, and results show that Asian individuals (particularly women) commonly collect fat in the abdominal area. CoolSculpting®’s primary target area is the abdomen, making this an ideal choice for Asian patients hoping to slim and tone up their midsection. 

Other common treatment zones include the waist, inner and outer thighs, and arms. 

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that freezes (and kills) fat cells without damaging the surrounding cells. 

An applicator is placed on the target area while actively cooling the area to a freezing temperature. Over time, the frozen fat cells die off and are naturally eliminated from the body, leaving behind a leaner, more contoured appearance.

It is important to note that multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.

The procedure does not work for everybody, so an individual should determine their candidacy for the procedure to enjoy the full benefits. A good candidate should be within 20 to 30 pounds of their goal weight with minor unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The bigger your problem areas, the more treatments will be required, and the less substantial the results will be.

Patients are also required to have good skin elasticity, so if you have significant sagging skin, you may want to consider a surgical procedure that tightens excess skin.
