Does CoolSculpting® Really Work?

You mean I can lose fat without having to work out or have some expensive surgical procedure? Is it too good to be true? Nope! 


CoolSculpting® is a great, FDA-approved option for people who would like to lose stubborn body fat without opting for lengthy, surgical or painful procedures. But does it really work, and how? 


How Does it Work? 

CoolSculpting® utilizes a procedure called cryolipolysis, which is also known as “fat freezing.” Cryolipolysis is a safe, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses a freezing temperature to reduce fat deposits or bulges in certain areas of the body that do not respond easily or conveniently to diet and exercise. 


After treatment, the frozen fat cells leave the body through the liver. This process takes several weeks, and patients can expect to see the full result of fat loss within three months after treatment. Research shows that, in total, this treatment can reduce fat deposits by as much as 25%. 

Where Can I Get it Done? 

Most patients use CoolSculpting® to target areas of their body where they have small amounts of extra fat that they haven’t been able to get rid of with diet and exercise. These areas include: 


  • Thighs
  • Lower back
  • Belly
  • Sides


CoolSculpting® can also treat unwanted fat on the legs, butt and arms, and even underneath the chin! 


How Long Does it Take? 

Quicker than you think! The treatment only takes about an hour per targeted body area, with larger areas taking slightly longer than smaller body areas. 


The other benefit of this fat-loss treatment is that it’s performed right in our office and it’s non-surgical, painless and requires no recovery time. So you can pop in during your lunch break, or before or after work, and get started on your fat-loss journey discreetly and quickly. 

How Long Do the Results Last?

Your amazing CoolSculpting® results should last forever because once the fat cells are frozen and excreted from your body, they are gone indefinitely! However, if you gain weight after your treatment, the remaining fat cells can grow larger in treated areas.
