What does CoolSculpting® do? 

CoolSculpting® uses a technology called cryolipolysis that freezes, and ultimately destroys, stubborn unwanted fat.  Rolls of fatty tissue are sucked into a special applicator which then cools them to a near freezing temperature, killing the fat cells inside.  The fat released from these cells is then processed through the lymphatic system before being expelled naturally from the body in urine and faeces.  Skin, muscles and nerves are left unharmed as the temperatures used in CoolSculpting® are not cold enough to do them damage.  First approved by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010, CoolSculpting® has been proven to be a safe and effective alternative to liposuction for reducing stubborn fat bulges on the abdomen, hips, inner and outer thighs, back, upper arms, beneath the buttocks (known as banana rolls) and under the chin. As it is a low-risk, non-invasive procedure patients are able to read, answer emails, watch their favorite show or even take a nap while the device is working.  A quick massage is given after the procedure to provide relief from any numbness or swelling caused by the device, and it also helps the body to absorb the dead fat cells and break down any frozen deep tissue.

How many areas can you perform CoolSculpting® on at once?

One round of CoolSculpting® is effective in treating small areas of stubborn fat in specific treatment areas, but for larger areas multiple treatments will likely be required. The ideal time between treatments is four months, but repeat sessions can be done after one or two months if required. In theory, there is no limit to how many procedures a patient can decide to have.

In order to speed up the process, it is possible to have two or three different areas treated at the same time, but this is reliant on there being two or three systems available that can be used simultaneously. If you are looking to have more than one area treated in the same session, you will need to check that your location of choice is able to facilitate this.  Again, time has to elapse before these areas can be treated again to ensure that any possible side effects have diminished.

How effective is CoolSculpting®?

Studies have shown that CoolSculpting® is effective in removing unwanted fat from the treated area by as much as 25%.  A 2009 study published by PubMed Central, a highly respected affiliate of the National Institutes of Health, stated that cryolipolysis reduced the fat layer of its test subjects by over 20% at two months and 25.5% after six months, post treatment.  Further tests confirmed that there was no long-term damage done to the skin or nerves.

One thing that should be borne in mind though is that CoolSculpting®, while effective at reducing fat, is not a weight loss solution.  If someone were to have that objective they would   likely be disappointed; CoolSculpting® is very effective at losing inches, but not pounds. The difference will come when you look in the mirror, not when you step on the scale.
