How does CoolSculpting® Work?

The science behind CoolSculpting® is called Cryolipolysis, and it is based on research that dates back decades by scientists at Harvard University who determined that cold can target fat cells specifically without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue.

Fat cells are highly sensitive to cold temperatures. CoolSculpting® fat removal system delivers controlled cooling that targets fat cells gently, yet effectively. Treated cells are crystallized or frozen and then die; your own body will process the fat in the weeks following the procedure and eliminate the dead cells, leaving behind a more sculpted figure and eliminated areas of stubborn fat.

Because the treated cells are eliminated and not just reduced in size or appearance, you can expect long-term, lasting results from your CoolSculpting® procedure. While one session can provide significant results, some areas may require additional session to further enhance the results.

The non-invasive and nearly painless nature of the process allows you to return to normal activities right after a session.

What Can I Expect at a CoolSculpting® Consultation?

How Does CoolSculpting® Help Me Lose Fat?

Reducing fat specifically is different than overall weight loss; CoolSculpting® is a procedure that targets specific fat cells. The number of fat cells in our body is fixed, usually in the teenage years. When you lose weight, you generally do not decrease the number of fat cells you have, instead, you decrease their size. After dieting and weight loss, each fat cell is smaller, but the number of cells remains the same.

CoolSculpting® introduces a new element into your quest for a sculpted body; it reduces the number of fat cells in a treated area by 20 to 25 percent. It does not change the number of fat cells in untreated areas, and cells are eliminated so they do not migrate elsewhere in the body. This means that CoolSculpting® can help you eliminate those troublesome areas of stubborn fat that remain even after you’ve completed a weight loss program and achieved dieting goals.

CoolSculpting® FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting®

Can CoolSculpting® help me lose weight?

CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss procedure, it is a fat elimination procedure. By freezing fat away, CoolSculpting® eliminates unwanted bulges. It is not a weight-loss solution for obesity, but it can be a great, non-surgical option for people who want to change the look and appearance of their body and feel more confident and comfortable in their clothes or while naked.

What Does CoolSculpting® Feel Like?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment. During the first few minutes, patients can usually feel some intense cold that dissipates shortly thereafter. In some cases, you may feel a pulling sensation as suction is applied. Within five to 10 minutes, the area being treated will go numb, and many people can enjoy reading, working on their laptop, watching shows or playing on their phones during the treatment. Following the procedure, the area will be massaged for two to three minutes. You can generally expect to return immediately to normal activities.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

CoolSculpting® eliminates fat cells as your body processes the frozen, dead cells away. In as soon as four weeks after the treatment, you will see results; after two months, the results will be most dramatic. Changes will continue to happen for four to six months after treatment. You can expect your CoolSculpting® results to be long-lasting.

I couldn’t be happier with my results!

I had my mommy makeover (tummy tuck with lipo of flanks & breast lift) in May of 2017. I’m 3 months post op and I can honestly say this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. My review is on real self for anyone who wants more info or photos. From the beginning Dr. Parakh was patient, knowledgeable, understanding & accommodating. My surgery was 8 hours and I spent one night at Hackensack Hospital. Dr. Parakh came to the hospital to see me the next morning and has always been available (even by personal text) to answer any questions and concerns I have had. Everything went really smoothly and I couldn’t be happier with my results! If you are considering a mommy makeover or any surgery go see Dr. Parakh. This is a truly life changing experience and she’s the best one to take the journey with! I feel 21 again 🙂 ~S.S.
