The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is the non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting so you’ll look great from every angle.
Do you have stubborn fat in certain areas that won’t go away regardless of how much you work out? Losing weight by dieting and exercising is generally great for your health, but it’s impossible to target specific areas of your body with lifestyle changes alone. That means you can run five miles every day, but even if you build up your thigh muscles, you’re no more likely to lose fat from your thighs than anywhere else on your body.
That is where CoolSculpting comes in. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other types of cells, so the same cool temperature that eliminates fat cells will have negligible effects on your muscles and skin. This procedure has helped countless clients get a new lease on life by safely removing fat from frustratingly bulgy areas of their bodies.
CoolSculpting permanently removes fat cells. The body does not make new fat cells. If you gain weight, the existing fat cells enlarge. If you lose weight, those fat cells shrink. If you gain enough weight, the cells around the area you previously treated with CoolSculpting enlarge and will disguise your results. However, if you lose the weight, then you will see your CoolSculpting results again.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
One of the most common questions physicians are asked is, “how does CoolSculpting work?” The CoolSculpting treatment works by a process called cryolipolysis. The fat cells in the treated area are crystallized (frozen) to the point where they are damaged and die – a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells.
After a CoolSculpting treatment, a deep-tissue massage is done to mobilize the fat that has been released from the damaged fat cells. The two-minute massage can help improve the lymphatic drainage of the fat.

The day of your appointment
You’ll drop into Life Clinic for your appointment. During the procedure, you’ll feel cold, and some pinching or pulling sensations. But like other CoolSculpting clients, you’ll be able to relax, do work, and watch television, read, or even get some sleep. After your procedure, you’ll get dressed and walk right out the door – CoolSculpting is non-surgical, so it requires no recovery time!
The week after CoolSculpting
You’ll be on your feet, going to work, socializing with friends, and exercising as usual. You might experience some swelling, numbness, or bruising and decide to take an over-the-counter painkiller. But you’ll quickly forget about your CoolSculpting procedure and feel like things have returned to normal. That is, you’ll feel like things are back to normal until…
Three weeks after CoolSculpting
When you will start to notice results! That’s right – Less than a month after your procedure, your body will have started flushing out the fat cells that your CoolSculpting treatment targeted. As time goes by, you’ll feel even more encouraged every day as you see changes take effect. Your look will keep getting better and better until…
Two months after CoolSculpting
This is when you’ll see the most dramatic results. With this wonderful change, you’ll feel even more confident. You’ll finally go out wearing that red dress that’s been hiding in the back of your closet for ages. You’ll feel motivated to keep dieting and exercising now that your body is finally cooperating. And your body will continue flushing out those fat cells until…
Four to six months after CoolSculpting
The changes you see will finally start to taper off, leaving behind a more ideal body shape. Confident and energetic, you’ll keep up your healthy lifestyle and feel as beautiful as you really are.
