It’s not uncommon for women and men to turn to body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting with the hope of reducing stubborn bulges and shedding excess weight.
In fact, one of the first questions that many patients ask is: Does CoolSculpting help with weight loss?
Continue reading to learn the difference between weight loss and fat loss and what patients can expect from CoolSculpting results.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses a patently cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells beneath the skin.
It is an excellent liposuction alternative for women and men who want to slim and sculpt targeted areas, without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment?
During the procedure, a pre-sized treatment applicator suctions fatty tissue between two cooling panels and delivers controlled cooling to freeze fat cells.
As a result, fat cells undergo apoptosis (cell death) and are gradually eliminated from the body via natural detoxification processes.
Does CoolSculpting Help With Weight Loss?
Due to its fat-blasting capabilities, patients often want to know: Does CoolSculpting help with weight loss?
While CoolSculpting can permanently remove stubborn bulges and improve body contours, it is not a weight loss treatment and will not change the number you see on the scale.
Here’s why. Everyone has a finite number of fat cells that expand when we gain weight and shrink when we lose weight. As such, weight loss is not permanent and can be noted throughout the body and face.
CoolSculpting, on the other hand, destroys fat cells in order to spot-reduce targeted areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, upper arms, back, and chin. This provides permanent fat reduction, shrinks the treatment area, and improves the way your clothes fit and look.
