CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared procedure that uses targeted and controlled cooling to gently and effectively freeze fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. It involves placing an applicator on the skin that will protect the skin while freezing the fat, which freezes at a higher temperature than surrounding tissue. Multiple sessions may be performed on different areas of the body on the same day. The body naturally processes and eliminates these dead fat cells permanently. The result is a more sculpted you. During the procedure, you may relax and read or take a nap. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can usually return to normal activities with no down time. You may begin to see the results as early as in three weeks, but it will take four to six months to see the full results.
