Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular body sculpting procedures, heralded by celebrities such as Debra Messing, Johnny Weir and Ian Poulter. RefinedMD offers the revolutionary fat freezing procedure to help clients contour and shape their bodies—and now even the under-chin area! It’s not technically a fat-loss procedure because patients need to be within a healthy weight range. However, it does offer a non-surgical option to targeted fat loss in small amounts.

How CoolSculpting Works

Can you really get rid of those stubborn fat pockets and shape your body with zero downtime? Yes, because CoolSculpting really works by freezing targeted fat and allowing it to be absorbed and eliminated by the body safely. Unlike liposuction, it’s completely non-invasive. Oftentimes the biggest risks with surgeries are the anesthesia and potential infections from open wounds. CoolSculpting comes with neither of those risks. But how does it work?

In comfortable 30-minute sessions, the CoolSculpting devices are placed on the areas to be targeted. The fat is frozen while you scroll through Instagram, watch television, or work on your laptop. Results aren’t immediate, and that’s a good thing. CoolSculpting is as effective as it is because the frozen fat requires time to be absorbed into the body. Unlike liposuction, this means no chance of crepe-like, lax skin from sudden and unnatural fat loss.

Targeted Areas For CoolSculpting Treatments

How many sessions a person needs depends on their unique body, goals, and area to be targeted. However, the average number of sessions is three to five. It can take six months for full results to show, but many patients see some reduction in just a couple of weeks. It’s always a good idea to take measurements of the CoolSculpted area and not rely on feel or photos. The loss is so gradual and natural-feeling that measurements are the best way to gauge success.

When fat is frozen with CoolSculpting or complementary procedures like Vanquish Me and Kybella for the under-chin area, it never “comes back.” We’re all born with a certain number of fat cells in each area. Weight loss through diet and exercise shrinks fat cells; it doesn’t eliminate them. CoolSculpting and weight loss surgeries are the only way to remove fat from an area permanently.
