When patients think of fat loss solutions, liposuction often comes to mind. While liposuction is a popular and effective way to reduce fat, it is an invasive surgical procedure that involves small incisions and anesthesia, as well as some recovery time. While the results of liposuction can mean a dramatic improvement in body shape, it is a far more disruptive procedure than CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target fat cells with extreme cold. The cold temperature effectively kills the unwanted fat cells without requiring any incisions or fat extraction techniques. After your fat cells die, your body naturally metabolizes the cell debris, and they are gone forever.
CoolSculpting is not a procedure with immediate results, as it takes time for the body to metabolize the fat cells. Patients will usually see results after four weeks, and then another noticeable change at two months. It takes about six months for the full results to be achieved, with many improvements along the way.
