Ever notice that it seems like half the world is always on a diet? Whatever the reason for carrying extra weight, whether related to lifestyle or a medical condition, people the world over want to lose those extra pounds. Many watch their diet diligently and exercise regularly and become frustrated when at least certain parts of their body just refuse to slim down. Some people turn to surgery, but that can be high risk, not to mention expensive. You may have heard of CoolSculpting®, a revolutionary non-surgical method for reducing body fat.

What is CoolSculpting?
Simply put, Cool Sculpting freezes away those stubborn fat cells that many of just can’t get rid of, no matter how diligent the diet or exercise attempt. Only those fat cells are targeted and after they’re frozen, your body naturally processes and excretes them. Those fat cells are dead and gone—they can’t come back!
How does the CoolSculpting procedure work, exactly?
While you’re comfortably reclining and reading or using your electronic device, an applicator will be applied to the area where you want to reduce fat. That area will rapidly turn cold and numb and you might feel some tingling. When the applicator is removed, the fat cells that were just treated will be massaged to facilitate their excretion. That’s it! No needles, no anesthesia, no down time. After your treatment, you can get up and go about your day immediately. You may see a little redness the first day and that’s normal.
How long will it be before I see results?
It could take up to three weeks for you to see results because the fat which has been frozen has to be flushed from your body.
Can the fat cells come back?
Not the ones destroyed. If you gain weight, you can see fat bulges again, yes, and those would need to be treated once more. Many individuals, however, feel so relieved at seeing those stubborn fat pockets finally gone that they become committed to a healthier lifestyle and therefore don’t have issues with problem areas of fat again.
