Whether you are a man or a woman, many people have difficulty losing fat in certain areas of the body regardless of consistent exercise or a healthy diet. Nothing is more frustrating than doing everything right, and failing to see your desired results. Luckily, technology has done it again! CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that makes losing stubborn fat easy, without the added complications of surgical procedures. Here are our top 5 favorite benefits of the CoolSculpting treatment.

1. Safe and non-surgical

Unlike surgical cosmetic procedures like a tummy tuck or liposuction, which provide a dramatic change and reduction of fat, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative that targets specific trouble areas of stubborn fat. This FDA-approved treatment uses one-of-a-kind technology to quite literally freeze and kill fat cells. Many patients receive a series of CoolSculpting treatments over several months on the same area, or several areas, in order to maximize their results.

2. Quick treatment

CoolSculpting is extremely convenient for those who may have consistently busy schedules. The procedure will be completed within 30-60 min on average, and since there is no downtime you will be able to return to your daily routine immediately after your appointment. You will not have to worry about any discomfort or pain after the procedure that may interfere with daily activities. 

3. Spot-reduces fat

Spot reducing fat can seem nearly impossible to accomplish through physical exercise. Even those who exercise regularly have places on their bodies that carry stubborn fat, resistant to change no matter what. If this sounds like you, you may want to consider CoolSculpting. This procedure is great for those in good physical health that are looking to spot-reduce fat in stubborn areas such as the love handles, under the chin, upper arms or back/bra fat.

4. Practically painless

Probably one of the greatest parts of CoolSculpting is that you should feel minimal to no pain during the treatment. Within 5-7 minutes you should feel comfortable and remain that way for the duration of your session. You can let go of any worry about incisions or injections and enjoy a relaxing experience, reading a book or even taking a cat nap! You may feel a tingling sensation and see redness or swelling immediately following the treatment, but that will disappear within a few hours. 

5. Results that last 

The results from CoolSculpting are proven, noticeable and lasting. CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology gives long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troubling. Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1-3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area. (Results may vary)
