CoolSculpting destroys stubborn fat cells without damaging your skin or surrounding healthy tissue.
After your fat cells are destroyed, your immune system eliminates them out over time. This may take several weeks, during which time your sculpted physique transforms to a leaner more sculpted look.

It’s common for some fat to linger even after you lose weight, but CoolSculpting gets rid of that stubborn fat for good. Weight loss from diet and exercise causes your fat cells to shrink, but they remain in your body. This often leads to pockets of fat cells in common problem areas, such as love handles.
How Long Does it Take?
The treatment process is really simple. Patients can expect a five to ten minute consult, where a medical professional will decide if they are good candidates. If a patient is deemed as a good candidate, the medical practitioner will usually draw around the treatment zones and apply an applicator on the treatment area. As it is not considered painful, patients can still expect to experience a prickly sensation as the applicator cools the treatment area through a skin protecting gel pad. This will take about 35 minutes to run. Treatments typically lasts about an hour to two hours at max.

The technology is based on an observation from scientists at Harvard University, who noticed that children got dimples in their cheeks after eating popsicles. The phenomenon they observed was cryolipolysis, or a targeted fat cell reduction through freezing.
