What Is CoolSculpting And Does It Work?

While it’s not possible to target specific fat stores with diet and exercise, there are medical procedures that can target your stubborn fat. For decades many have turned to liposuction to get rid of their lovehandles, and hard to lose belly fat.

The problem with liposuction is that it’s an invasive, and expensive procedure. There is, however, a non-invasive alternative to liposuction called CoolScupting, that provides similar results without requiring surgery.

What Is CoolSculpting?

The basic premise of CoolSculpting is to kill your fat cells by freezing them. The idea of removing fat cells with cold treatments, was discovered entirely by chance. Several Harvard medical students noticed children were more likely to develop dimples while eating popsicles.

These kids were actually freezing their fat cells and removing them from their body.

CoolSculpting extrapolates this dynamic by using proprietary technology to target and freeze your stubborn fat cells. This will permanently kill the cells in the area of your choice, and allow you to harmlessly expel the dead cells over time.

The best part about CoolSculpting is that it’s permanent. It’s not like you’ll have to keep getting repetitive treatments every month. After your treatments are completed, the fat cells are dead and your stubborn fat will be removed.
