CoolSculpting has quickly become a popular aesthetic treatment for pockets of stubborn fat. While CoolSculpting has already helped numerous patients achieve a slimmer and more toned physique, no two bodies are alike. So, you may be wondering if CoolSculpting can be used to target excess fat in your “problem areas”.
The good news is that CoolSculpting is effective at reducing fat cells in several parts of the body! Here, we’ll discuss the areas of the body that CoolSculpting can be used for and what you can expect from the treatment process.
Areas of The Body for CoolSculpting Treatment
The FDA has approved CoolSculpting for use on the following areas of the body:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Bra fat
- Under the buttocks
- Upper arms
- Under the chin (double chin)
There are different sizes of CoolSculpting applicators to ensure that the cooling technology is delivered with precision, no matter the treatment area.
What to Expect From a CoolSculpting Treatment
During a CoolSculpting treatment, the applicator is applied to one treatment area at a time. Then, the device uses vacuum suction to draw the tissue with stubborn fat into a chamber. In this chamber, controlled cooling technology is administered to the treatment area. This process freezes the fat cells and causes them to undergo cryolipolysis, or cell death.
CoolSculpting permanently destroys approximately 25% of the exposed fat cells in a treatment session. This process is non-invasive and doesn’t cause any pain for most patients. Plus, no recovery downtime is required after CoolSculpting, making it a convenient option for patients with hectic schedules!
