CoolSculpting® ChicagoQuestion: Does freezing fat work? Is CoolSculpting® a reliable way to get rid of my bulges?

Answer: CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive fat reduction office-based procedure that is clinically proven and FDA approved. During the procedure your unwanted fat bulge is drawn into the Coolsculpting® applicator and your fat is cooled without damaging the skin. When the applicator is released, your fat cells start to crystallize. At that point, some cells will enter a process called “apoptosis” and others will die through an inflammatory process in the body. Over 8-12 weeks, your cooled fat bulge will shrink 20-25%.

Based on science developed by a Harvard Physician, this breakthrough is based on research that demonstrates how fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively and permanently destroyed.

Treatments last 1 -2 hours and have little or no downtime. Some patients may want additional treatments until they obtain a desired result. No anesthesia, laser or needles are involved and patients typically can return to normal activities within hours of their treatment. Most individuals can expect to see a 20-25% reduction in the treated area!

Nearly everyone has stubborn, diet-resistant pockets or bulges of fat, and this is a very effective treatment. I recommend it for those who lead healthy lifestyles but wish to trim the fat bulge off certain areas.
