How it works
The CoolSculpting® procedure delivers precisely controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), destroyed, and then over time your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells.* The result? A more sculpted you.
Fat freezing during the CoolSculpting® procedure
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and destroy only these fat cells.*
In the weeks that follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates dead cells.*
So treated fat cells are gone for good.*
Fat elimination after the CoolSculpting® procedure
Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting® procedure are gradually destroyed and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process.* Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
Fat cells after typical weight loss
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. Losing weight does not make fat cells go away.
Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger.
Fat cells after the CoolSculpting® procedure
The CoolSculpting® fat-freezing procedure can reduce the number of fat cells in multiple treatment areas by up to 27% after 6 months.†
These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body,* so there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.
