How CoolSculpting® Gets Rid of Pinchable Fat for Good

When you live a healthy lifestyle exercising and eating a balanced diet, it can be frustrating to deal with stubborn fat. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that can help reduce stubborn fat so that you can achieve the body contours you desire.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® uses a process called cryolipolysis to help reduce stubborn fat. CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling technology to freeze fat cells, which then die and are processed out of the body over the next few weeks. Because the treatment destroys the treated fat cells, they are gone for good.

What Can I Expect During My Treatment?

Once the target areas have been identified, a gel pad will be used to help protect your skin. Then, the applicator will be placed, and the machine will draw up the fat roll using suction. You may feel a tugging sensation as this occurs. The CoolSculpting® machine will then use controlled cooling to lower the temperature of the target site. The machine keeps the temperature within a precise range to freeze the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. You can relax during your treatment, which can take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to reduce fat in nine different areas of the body, including the following:

  • Double chin
  • Upper arms
  • Bra roll/back fat
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs

There are different applicators available to ensure a proper fit on the treatment site. At Afzal Clinics, we also offer Dual Sculpting, which uses two CoolSculpting® machines at once to reduce twice the fat in half the time, Dual Sculpting is most useful on areas that require two sides to be treated, such as the upper arms or the thighs, to ensure symmetry.

Are There Other Treatments Available?

Not every patient is a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. If you have larger fat deposits that may not be as easy to treat, we also offer in-office liposuction. This procedure uses local anesthetic and power-assisted liposuction, allowing you to go home right after your treatment. Some patients may even be able to return to work the next day.
