CoolSculpting® Does it Work?

Imagine saying goodbye to stubborn fat without surgery – that’s CoolSculpting!

Understanding CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a revolutionary approach to fat reduction that’s improving lives. Imagine targeting those stubborn pockets of fat that defy traditional methods, and doing it without surgery. CoolSculpting employs a process called cryolipolysis, where controlled cooling is applied to specific areas, effectively freezing fat cells beneath the skin’s surface. These frozen cells gradually undergo apoptosis, a natural cell death process, and are then naturally eliminated from the body over weeks and months. It’s like sculpting your body using the power of science.

How does it work?

The procedure works by freezing the fat cells, causing them to undergo a natural cell death process called apoptosis. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these dead fat cells, resulting in a reduction of the treated area’s fat layer.


A medical professional evaluates the patient's body and determines whether they are a suitable candidate for CoolSculpting. The procedure is often recommended for individuals with localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.


During the treatment, a device is placed on the targeted area, and it uses controlled cooling to freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. The surrounding skin and tissues are not harmed due to the selective sensitivity of fat cells to cold temperatures.

Cooling Process

The cooling process causes the fat cells to crystallize and undergo apoptosis, a natural cell death process

Natural Elimination

Over the following weeks and months after the procedure, the body's lymphatic system gradually eliminates the dead fat cells. The treated area's fat layer diminishes as a result.


Visible results typically become noticeable a few weeks after the treatment, with the most dramatic results becoming apparent around two to three months after the procedure. Multiple sessions might be recommended for more significant fat reduction.

Side Effects

CoolSculpting is generally considered safe, and side effects are usually mild and temporary. Common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, numbness, or discomfort in the treated area. These effects tend to resolve on their own within a few days to weeks.

Treatment Cycles

Depending on your goals and the treatment area, multiple CoolSculpting® sessions might be recommended. Your provider will advise you on the number of sessions needed to achieve the desired results.


The fat cells that are treated and eliminated through CoolSculpting® do not regenerate. As the body eliminates the treated fat cells, you'll start to notice gradual improvements in the appearance of the treated area. Some individuals may begin to see changes as early as three weeks after the procedure, with more significant results becoming apparent around two to three months later.


CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure. This means that unlike surgical procedures like liposuction, it doesn't involve incisions, anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery period.

Back To Work

One of the benefits of CoolSculpting® is that it is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime. After the treatment, you can typically resume your normal activities without significant restrictions.


CoolSculpting®, developed by Zeltiq, has been on the market since 2010. It's based on the patented cryolipolysis technology, which freezes and eliminates fat cells to achieve non-invasive fat reduction.
