We all know diet and exercise is essential in maintaining a toned body shape however, on occasions, some stubborn fat remains.People have turned to plastic surgery in the past, but according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), liposuction has declined in popularity by 30% since 2000 due to the rise of non-surgical body contouring device called Coolsculpting. Coolsculpting aims to provide a fast and effective treatment to reduce fat without any downtime, allowing for immediate return to work or play after the procedure. Unlike invasive procedures such as liposuction which may require general anesthesia and prolonged bruising and downtime. Coolsculpting patients see progressive results in as little as 3 weeks following treatment, and more dramatic results in 1-3 months after treatment.
Coolsculpting, or cryolipolysis, is a fat-freezing fat reduction treatment that is said to rank #1 on the market today. This FDA-approved treatment can help reshape and smooth your body and thus, can increase confidence and allow you to wear what you’ve always wanted to. Many opt for this procedure to deal with bumps and bulges that cannot be treated with diet and exercise. These fat pockets are common in the hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, stomach, back, and chin. Coolsculpting is shown to have a high success rate in removing areas of fat from the body and have minimal side effects in comparison to other related procedures. However, just like these related procedures, people who undergo the treatment are required to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Research has found that people have lost up to 28.5 percent of the fat in areas treated by Coolsculpting.

How does Coolsculpting & Fat Freezing work?
This noninvasive treatment works by freezing fat cells in specific parts of the body. Unlike procedures like liposuction, that also deals with fat reduction, Coolsculpting does not involve surgery or anesthetic and is therefore safer than most other fat-related treatments out there. After destroying the fat cells, they are unlikely to return but a healthy lifestyle is extremely important to preserve the results of Coolsculpting.
Using the FDA-approved technology called Cryolipolysis, the technology exposes fat cells to cold temperatures for a specific amount of time where they undergo silent cell death without discomfort. The number of fat cells decreases and consequently decreases the thickness of adipose tissue in the area. This technology is localized, which means surrounding tissues are unharmed and unaffected. Skin cells, muscles, and nerves don’t respond to low temperatures like fat cells do.
Many patients are happy after 2-3 sessions. Every session decreases the number of treated fat cells by about 20%-25%. The results are shown to last over 9+ years if body weight remains stable.
