CoolSculpting Elite® is by far the most popular body sculpting treatment in the U.S., with approximately 300,000 procedures performed each year. However, many of the clients we see who are looking at CoolSculpting as a body contouring option still ask, does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting Elite is a nonsurgical, noninvasive body contouring procedure for men and women that reduces pockets of stubborn body fat in trouble areas such as the abdomen, lower back, and under the chin. Introduced to the market by leading medical cosmetic brand, Allergan Aesthetics, CoolSculpting was FDA-approved in 2010 to help individuals who actively work out and lead a healthy lifestyle to tighten and tone target areas that have been resistant to exercise and diet alone.
Here are the Top 10 CoolSculpting Questions our Master CoolSculpting Specialists Hear from Clients wondering, “Does CoolSculpting Work”:
1. HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING ELITE WORK?
CoolSculpting Elite is the brand name for a fat-freezing method called cryolipolysis. During a CoolSculpting Elite procedure, applicators are placed on the target area to deliver controlled cooling at the exact location of unwanted fat cells. Unlike exercise alone, CoolSculpting is able to target specific areas of wanted fat loss.
Since fat cells are significantly more susceptible to cold damage than other cells, CoolSculpting leaves the skin and surrounding tissue unharmed. Once the unwanted fat cells are frozen, the body naturally processes and eliminates them as waste, reducing up to 25% of fat in the treated area.
2. IS COOLSCULPTING ELITE A WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT?
CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight loss treatment. It is a fat reduction method to target unwanted fat deposits (that are resistant to diet and exercise). CoolSculpting Elite is meant to complement weight loss efforts, but cannot replace traditional diet and exercise. An ideal CoolSculpting Elite candidate actively works out and maintains a healthy lifestyle but seeks fat reduction treatment for a specific area.
3. DOES COOLSCULPTING ELITE WORK ON BELLY FAT?
Yes, CoolSculpting Elite is scientifically backed to reduce belly fat. In fact, CoolSculpting Elite has been proven 85% effective at reducing stubborn body fat in the abdomen and has been shown to reduce the visible fat layer in the stomach in just two sessions.
4. HOW MANY COOLSCULPTING ELITE TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The number of CoolSculpting Elite sessions will vary depending on each individual’s body contouring goals and desired treatment areas. You can anticipate up to a 20 to 25% reduction in fat layer thickness after a single session, though most clients require two or more treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.
5. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE COOLSCULPTING ELITE RESULTS?
You may begin to see results as early as four weeks post-procedure, but the most dramatic results appear within one to three months. Your body will continue to naturally remove the damaged fat cells for up to six months after your procedure, when results will be most evident.
6. HOW DO YOU SPEED UP COOLSCULPTING ELITE RESULTS?
