CoolSculpting is a popular alternative to surgery, and many people are choosing it as a way to get rid of stubborn areas of fat that seem impossible to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. But how does CoolSculpting work, exactly? And what can you expect from the treatment? 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses cooling technology to freeze and eliminate fat cells.

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure that uses cryolipolysis to permanently eliminate stubborn fat cells. The process of cryolipolysis is achieved by cooling the targeted fat cells to induce a natural cell death. As the dead cells are flushed from the body through natural metabolic processes, leaner, sleeker-looking skin emerges.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

CoolSculpting treatment usually lasts for about an hour. First, the CoolSculpting device will be positioned on your body. Then, the applicator will be applied to the target area. You’ll feel a cooling sensation as the device begins to freeze the fat cells. Most patients describe the sensation as one that’s akin to “pins and needles.”

That sensation will eventually subside, and the medical professional will complete the treatment.

Who Can Benefit from CoolSculpting Treatments?

CoolSculpting treatments are safe and effective for most people who want to get rid of stubborn fat. However, it is not recommended for pregnant women or those who are breastfeeding. It is also not recommended for people who have a pacemaker or other implantable medical device.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

Some of the benefits of undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment include:

  • You’ll see results in as little as one treatment
  • No surgery or needles required
  • The procedure is completely noninvasive
  • Achieve the ideal body without any pain or downtime
  • The results are long-lasting

Side Effects of CoolSculpting

The side effects of CoolSculpting include redness, bruising, swelling, and numbness. These effects almost always disappear within a week of the treatment.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the clinic you choose and the number of areas you want to treat. Typically, the price for a single CoolSculpting session is about $900 per treatment area.


So, how does CoolSculpting work? The science behind it is actually quite simple. Fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures than other types of cells in the body. So, when they’re subjected to cold temperatures, they crystallize and die. Over time, your body naturally excretes those dead cells, resulting in a slimmer appearance.
