First Timer's Guide to CoolSculpting

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

Everyone deserves to feel happy and confident with their body. However, the journey to a fit, toned, and sculpted one is not always easy.

We've all heard that a well-balanced, nutritious diet and constant exercise are necessary for achieving a fit and healthy body. However, sometimes, there remain stubborn fat pockets which are difficult to get rid of despite our best efforts.

Fortunately, we now have CoolSculpting—a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that is among the most popular body sculpting treatments today. Why? Well, who wouldn’t want to freeze away unwanted fats without going under the knife?

Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting!

Understanding CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that eliminates fat cells using a patented cooling technology. It is the only FDA-approved therapy for removing stubborn fat from nine different body locations, including under the chin and jawline, thighs, belly, and flanks, as well as bra fat, back fat, beneath the buttocks, and upper arms.

CoolSculpting produces visible and long-lasting effects, allowing you to look and feel your best.

How It Works

Regardless of diet or exercise, fat cells can build up in the body and can be very difficult to eliminate in certain areas. CoolSculpting techniques use controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to target, freeze, and kill fat cells beneath the skin. These fat cells then die and are naturally expelled from the body in the weeks that follow, giving you a slimmer, fitter contour.

CoolSculpting results are permanent so long as the patient maintains a healthy weight. Once the frozen fat cells are eliminated, they're gone for good.

More About CoolSculpting

Here are the other things that you need to know about CoolSculpting:

  • The treatment works best for patients with a BMI of less than 25.

  • Do note that CoolSculpting isn't a weight loss procedure, but a targeted fat loss treatment.

  • CoolSculpting is best suited for persons who are happy with their present weight or are almost at their ideal weight, but want to get rid of stubborn fat pockets in certain areas to achieve a shapelier contour.

Preparing for Your Initial CoolSculpting Treatment

If you’ve had a consultation and have been cleared to proceed with CoolSculpting, you can follow these tips to best prepare for the procedure:

  • Maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine while getting your CoolSculpting treatments.

  • Drink enough water beforehand.

  • Wear something comfortable to your appointment.

  • As much as possible, avoid taking anti-inflammatories like aspirin beforehand to help reduce any bruising. (But remember to check in with your attending physician beforehand too.)

Freeze Those Stubborn Fats Away!

There are numerous other fat reduction therapy options available, such as liposuction and even other non-surgical methods. So, what makes Coolsculpting stand out from the rest? For starters, it is FDA-approved and the treatment can reduce the amount of fat in the target area by up to 25%.
