During the last few decades, the choices within body contouring and plastic surgery have significantly increased. New techniques and new procedures have made it possible to shape every inch of the body. One of the latest methods that is taking the cosmetic industry by rage is CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting
Based on the cryolipolysis technology, CoolSculpting uses the fat-freezing method to get rid of fat from certain parts of the body, especially the stubborn fat that’s difficult to shift, even with diet and exercise. Two doctors at Harvard Medical School observed that children who ate popsicles developed dimples on their cheeks, possibly due to the frozen treat. This led to the discovery of the concept that fat cells can possibly be frozen away for good. . .
The process of cryolipolysis is not actually a surgery and it does not use any needles either. Coolsculpting® procedure works by delivering controlled cooling to selectively target fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The targeted area is held between two devices from 35 minutes to an hour to freeze & kill fat cells. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these dead cells. It takes a few months to show prominent results, but you will start noticing changes after a few weeks.
Common CoolSculpting Areas
The tummy or abdomen is the most common problematic region for men and women, and CoolSculpting was originally designed to target belly fat reduction. Having that flabby skin and protruding stomach is a cause of insecurity for many and that is where CoolSculpting comes into play.
- Double Chin
Double chin is nothing but fat getting accumulated under the chin. CoolSculpting can rectify this and give a more defined and elegant jawline.
- Upper Arms
fat under the arms that just doesn’t go is a common grouse for most women, making it challenging to wear sleeveless outfits. CoolSculpting can get rid of this unwanted fat and replace it with well-defined, toned arms that will look amazing in any sleeveless outfit.
CoolSculpting is great for toning the inner and outer thighs by easily removing the excess fat and can even help one achieve that much-desired inner thigh gap. A Just within a few weeks after a CoolSculpting session, notice the difference from jiggly thighs to well-toned thighs.
Who doesn’t desire a perfect derriere! Saggy looking glutes, caused by fat accumulated just under the butt (also called as banana rolls), can also be treated by CoolSculpting.

While CoolSculpting may be the current “in-trend” thing, it is important that one consults a professional to understand the results they are likely to achieve. It’s highly recommended to share one’s medical history and expected results so that the dermatologist can help in deciding if this is the right procedure or not.
