How does CoolSculpting work?

At MD Cote, we understand how hard men and women work to lose weight and live a more active lifestyle to extend their lifespan. Many patients who lose a significant amount of weight may also benefit from better health, especially if they are diagnosed with conditions such as diabetes. However, after weight loss, some patients may find that specific areas of the body are not helping them reach their cosmetic goals. One area where it can be difficult to target specific areas of fat is the abdominal area. Whether you have a sizable stomach or unwanted “muffin tops” or “love handles,” the CoolSculpting treatment might be right for you! 

Understanding how CoolSculpting works 

CoolSculpting is a specialized device that has been cleared by the FDA for the reduction of unwanted fat on the body. It is used to target fat deposits typically found in the midsection to essentially freeze them through a process called cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells in the specific treatment area, which allows the body’s lymphatic system to naturally flush them out with time. In doing so, patients will notice over several months that the treated area becomes more slim and contoured. 

Is CoolSculpting good for weight loss? 

It is vital that patients understand the purpose of CoolSculpting. It is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it is a body contouring treatment that is used to target stubborn areas where unwanted fat continues to remain after losing weight and reaching one’s weight loss goals. It improves the contours, often resulting in a drop in pant and dress size for most patients after routine treatments are performed. This allows patients to look great—and feel great—about their appearance.
