2020 is finally here – and if you’re like most people, you’ve probably made resolutions to achieve your best self ever. Maybe that includes weight loss, or finally fitting into that pair of jeans you’ve had in the back of your closet for years. But what happens if you’re doing all the right things with diet and exercise, but you don’t see your fat budge? That’s where CoolSculpting comes in. Let’s take a closer look at this FDA-approved treatment and how it works to non-surgically reduce fat.

 How CoolSculpting Reduces Unwanted Fat 

CoolSculpting uses a patented process to deliver freezing energy through the subdermal tissue and directly to the fat cells clustered underneath the skin. This energy targets and crystallizes fat cells, causing them to become damaged. Once they’re disrupted, fat leaks out of the cells, which causes a shrinking effect. Over time (usually about 16 weeks), the damaged cells are removed, leaving behind a more contoured appearance.

Why Should I Choose Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

Non-surgical body contouring with CoolSculpting is a good option if you aren’t a candidate for more invasive fat reduction procedures, like liposuction. Plus, technologies like CoolSculpting make it safer and easier to target and reduce fat without requiring stitches, surgical scarring, or general anesthesia. 

 Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting? 

You’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatments if you’re within 15 to 20 pounds of your ideal weight, but you’re having a hard time getting rid of a certain area of fat. CoolSculpting is meant for individuals who are already following a healthy lifestyle, as it shouldn’t be seen as a weight-loss treatment.  CoolSculpting cannot prevent fat from returning, so it’s important for all candidates to commit to clean eating and regular exercise to keep treated fat from coming back.
