Does CoolSculpting Work?

When CoolSculpting first entered the aesthetic market in 2010, people were extremely skeptical that it could eliminate stubborn fat without surgery, incisions, or downtime.
Nine years and seven million treatments later, CoolSculpting has become the No. 1 non-invasive body contouring treatment for women and men.
However, there are still some individuals in Arlington, Virginia who are not convinced of its efficacy and wonder: Does CoolSculpting work?
If you are considering CoolSculpting in or around Arlington, Virginia, and want to learn more about its consistent and reliable fat reduction, here’s everything you need to know to make a well-informed decision.
How Does CoolSculpting Eliminate Fat?
In order to answer the question – Does CoolSculpting work? – it’s important to discuss how the technology approaches fat.
CoolSculpting uses a process known as cryolipolysis to target and freeze fat cells beneath the skin.
During the treatment, controlled cooling is applied to pinchable fat and causes fat cells to undergo apoptosis (cell death). The crystallized fat cells are then cleared from the body via the lymphatic system.
All of this occurs without incisions, cutting, anesthesia, or damage to skin and surrounding structures.
Does CoolSculpting Work?
Although CoolSculpting is one of the most-studied body contouring treatments with a trusted track record, some people still wonder if it actually slims and sculpts the body.
The good news is that CoolSculpting in Northern Virginia is clinically-proven to eliminate up to 24 percent of fat cells in the treated area. This provides circumferential reduction in the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, and arms and improves the fit and appearance of clothing.
Many individuals also report feeling more confident and comfortable about their bodies after undergoing CoolSculpting.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Most patients can note visible fat reduction within four-to-six weeks of treatment. These results continue to improve and typically peak around eight-to-12 weeks.
Best of all, once the fat cells are eliminated from the body, they are gone for good.
Accordingly, CoolSculpting not only works, it provides permanent fat reduction as long as patients maintain a relatively stable weight.
