Fat freezing during the CoolSculpting ® procedure
Many of us have stubborn fat even with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting ® technology utilizes controlled cooling to target and destroy just these fat cells. In the weeks that follow, your body naturally processes the fat and removes dead cells. So treated fat cells are gone for good.
Fat cells after normal weight loss
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller yet the number of fat cells stays the same. Losing weight does not make fat cells go away.
Losing or gaining weight typically does not raise or lower the number of fat cells. Instead, it alters the size of fat cells. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger.
Fat cells after the CoolSculpting ® treatment
The CoolSculpting ® fat-freezing procedure can decrease the amount of fat cells in numerous treatment spots by approximately 27% after 6 months.
These fat cells are naturally processed and removed, so they won’t move to another part of your body, so there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.
What does CoolSculpting ® do?

Pros and Cons
As you can see, there are many reasons why this procedure is so popular in recent years. There are many benefits of choosing it as an alternative to some invasive methods. First of all, it is simple and painless. You don’t need any preparation time, and the best part is that you can complete it in one day.
Therefore, no planning is required as well since you can visit a medical institution after work, and spend only one hour on that. Also, it is providing a high level of flexibility and accuracy since you can apply this procedure to different parts of your body, such as arms, legs, thighs, abdomen, chin, and more.
Another amazing feature is that you don’t need time for recovery. The effects are instant, and you can continue with your activities right after the procedure is done. Many people are interested in different types of aesthetic procedures, but they are afraid of pain and surgery. This is a perfect solution for them since this option is painless.
The only feeling you will get is that the area where it is applied might get colder and tight. This method is very efficient. The cold will affect the fat under the skin to disintegrate and get out of the body instantly.
After that, the body will start removing the fat cells, and the real results will be there after up to 6 months. On the other side, keep in mind that physical activity and proper diet are still very important since that is the only way to make the results long-lasting.
The biggest downside is related to people with a more serious level of obesity since it might not be so efficient. Also, it will require more time to reach the preferred results. While the results in some cases can be very effective, and remove over 50% of fat in certain areas, keep in mind that it is much more difficult if the level of obesity is over 30 BMI. In that case, the chances that you will lose fat are much lower. Therefore, a much better solution would be to start with liposuction until you reach a certain point where this option can be more efficient.
Moreover, even though we mentioned that the results are instant, keep in mind that the process where your appearance will get improved will take at least three months. The reason is related to the processes that are activated in your body with this procedure. The fat cells are killed instantly, but your body will remove them over a longer period of time.
When it comes to potential side effects, the chances to face any of them are very low, especially if you visit a well-known institution and the procedure is handled by an expert. On the other side, you might feel some short-term effects like swelling, redness, and numbness of the affected area. It usually disappears after a couple of hours. However, if you have any sort of irritation for a longer time, be sure to visit the doctor.
