What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic treatment that makes use of patented cooling technology to destroy fat cells without the need for surgery and little to no downtime. This process of destroying fat cells is known as cryolipolysis.

CoolSculpting has the ability to target stubborn fat located in diverse places on the body such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, around the bra line, the back and the area just under the buttocks, known as the “banana roll.”

With each treatment, your body naturally eliminates these fat cells, thereby achieving a noticeable and long-lasting result in the treated area. The result is a more sculpted body shape.

How are CoolSculpting results permanent?

There are many things to HATE about a fat cell.  However, fat cells do have one major redeeming quality.  Once they die, they never come back!  That’s right!  Once you destroy a fat cell, through whatever mechanism (i.e., mechanical or liposuction, chemical, heat, or cold), then that fat cell is gone forever.  The fat cells around the ones that are destroyed are still healthy and can function normally (grow, shrink, etc.), but the fat cells that are targeted and destroyed through the CoolSculpting treatment are gone for good.

Quick Facts About CoolSculpting

  • It is the only FDA approved fat freezing technique that was cleared in 2012.
  • It is based on the science of cryolipolysis, which uses cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells.
  • It is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia
  • Most treatment “cycles” can be completed in 35 minutes. There is no recovery time needed

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting makes use of patented controlled cooling technology that only targets and destroys fat cells in the body.

The freezing temperature used to break down fat cells does not damage other cells; therefore, there is no underlying damage to the skin or tissue beneath the fat cells.  This is a distinguishing factor from CoolSculpting and other “cryolipolysis machines” as CoolSculpting has been proven safe and effective for reducing the number of fat cells but not damaging other tissue.

Using a patented CoolSculpting applicator (or “handpiece”) during the procedure, a trained provider places the handpiece on the skin above the area of fatty tissue that cools the fat cells causing a numbing effect to the treatment area.

Once the fat cells have been treated, your body will naturally dispose of the waste through natural processes.  This process takes a few months to fully complete, but the results are permanent.

There really isn’t a “typical” CoolSculpting treatment plan because every person is unique and may require extra or fewer cycles to achieve their goals.  This is why working with a medical practice like Oxford Medical Aesthetics & Laser is very important.  Experience matters when developing a treatment plan for each person uniquely.  We aim to tailor all of our treatments according to the individual.

Who Is A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction technique solely designed for patients that want to reduce unwanted fat in specific areas.

Patients that lead a healthy lifestyle-that eat right and exercise yet have noticeable bulges in specific areas are good candidates for CoolSculpting.

It should be noted that CoolSculpting is not suitable for obese people as it is not meant to be substituted for a weight loss procedure.

Popsicle and Coolsculpting

What do popsicles have to do with CoolSculpting?

Two scientists at Harvard Medical School began to notice an interesting fact about children that ate a lot of popsicles.  They developed dimples more often than children that did not eat popsicles.  This discovery was termed “popsicle panniculitis” and is the foundation for the science behind CoolSculpting.  The scientist figured out that fat cells are much more susceptible to cold temperatures than other tissues in the body.

Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

Clinical research reveals that at least 80% of CoolSculpting procedures are effective for fat reduction. Even reviews on realself.com show positive ratings at 83%.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved technique to freeze fat just beneath the skin due to its safe and effective methods. As part of its safety measures, the machine automatically stops if it detects that the skin is getting too cold from the treatment.

While it has a high success rate, it is not a miracle cure for people expecting that the procedure will remove all the fat completely.

This procedure will not work the same way for everybody as lifestyle, and other factors play a major role in its effectiveness.

What Are The Side Effects of CoolSculpting?

A review conducted in 2015 revealed that there were no serious complications associated with the CoolSculpting treatment, such as bleeding or scarring.

Some of the common side effects that we have seen at Oxford Medical Aesthetics & Laser include:

  • bruising
  • swelling
  • less sensation on the treated area
  • skin redness and
  • localized pain

In our experience, these side effects are transient and remedy themselves naturally.

Is CoolScupting a weight loss solution?

No.  CoolSculpting is not intended to be a weight loss solution for individuals seeking to lose unnecessary weight.  This procedure is for sculpting the body in areas that have stubborn areas of fat.
