CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that has exploded in popularity lately. You may be wondering why everyone is so excited about it and if it is a good choice for you. This treatment is designed to help target stubborn pockets of fat in a safe way that gives you gradual, natural results.
How CoolSculpting® Works
Fat cells, like most things, can only survive at certain temperatures. When you have CoolSculpting® done, the temperature of the fat cells is reduced to the point that they crystallize and die. Once this has happened, they will be unable to store fat. Not only does this mean the fat that they had will be flushed out, but it also means they will never store fat in the future. The body does not repair or replace these destroyed fat cells. This means you can see permanent results with this treatment. It is still important to maintain a healthy lifestyle so that new problem areas do not appear.
Results develop over time after you have CoolSculpting® done. It typically takes 3 weeks to see noticeable improvements. Peak results are usually seen about two months after your treatment. During this time, your body is busy flushing out fat. Due to how gradual the results appear, no one will be able to tell you had any help getting to your body goals.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Certain things make a person a better candidate for this treatment option than others. Although it is highly effective at releasing fat from target areas, it is not meant to be an all-over weight-loss option. The ideal candidate for this treatment will be near their goal weight. Even though CoolSculpting® is non-surgical and carries very little risk of negative side effects, it is still important to be in good overall health before having it done.

There are many reasons why this treatment has gained so much popularity so quickly. Some of the highlights include:
- It is non-surgical and results in no downtime
- Treatments are relatively quick and relaxing
