So you have been on a healthy diet, made consistent gym visits, and have a healthy weight to show for it. But you still see a double chin, love handles, or a not-so-flat tummy when you look in the mirror. Since fat deposits in those areas have refused to ‘burn,’ how about freezing them off? That’s what coolsculpting does.
Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that allows you to permanently remove localized fat, making it easier than ever to define body outlines and refine and shape your silhouette. No blades, no needles, and no recovery time. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? But does it really work?

What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting, commonly known as fat freezing, is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that works by freezing fat deposits in specific body areas. The dead fat cells are absorbed and removed as waste over a few weeks.
Perhaps the thought of freezing that stubborn fat appeals to you, but you are concerned about ice damaging your skin. Well, you don’t need to worry. The cold temperatures only kill fat cells leaving your skin and other tissues unhurt. That’s one cool fact about coolsculpting.

Common Treatment areas for body sculpting are :

  • Stomach
  • Flanks (Love handles)Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Knees (above and inside)
  • Back fat/bra fat
  • Triceps (back of arms)
  • Chin

How is Coolsculpting performed?

Coolsculpting is a relatively quick body contouring procedure. Usually, a session takes about 35-60 minutes, so you can get it done during a lunch break if you wish. First, our coolsculpting expert outlines the area to be treated with a skin-marking pencil and then applies a skin-protecting gel. Then the applicator attached to the coolsculpting device vacuums the fatty bulge into its hollow opening. The applicator then freezes and breaks down the fat cells.

Following that, the specialist massages the area for 2 to 3 minutes to aid in the breakdown of fat cells. To save time, we can work on two body parts at once, such as both hips.

Is the procedure painful?

Some people experience soreness at the coolsculpting treatment site, comparable to what they might experience after a hard workout. Others have complained of minor discoloration, swelling, and itching. All these go away in a few days.
When performed by a trained body contouring specialist, the fat freezing process is completely safe.

Does Coolsculpting work?

Yes, it does. coolsculpting is a fantastic approach to getting rid of fat in trouble spots, especially fat deposits that are not responding to diet and exercise. In most cases, a treatment session removes half an inch to one inch of fat from the target location. Results may take some time to appear. You may start observing changes as early as three weeks after the procedure. After two months, you will see a significant improvement. In addition, your self-esteem will undoubtedly receive a boost at your improved appearance. Coolsculpting is quite effective, and the benefits are long-lasting as long as you live a healthy lifestyle. However, it is vital to remember that this technique isn’t intended to help you reduce weight or tighten loose skin. Instead, it’s a strategy to get rid of specific troublesome fat deposits and contour your body to enhance the beauty of your body shape. Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. We’ll work with you during your appointment to figure out which regions you want to treat and which ones would respond best to fat freezing.
