CoolSculpting is a breakthrough technology based research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and can be selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed. Several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin to shrink and disappear. The body naturally and gradually eliminates the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. A non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling specifically targeting fat. Treatments last between one to two hours. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects. On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in a visible reduction of fat as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.
