Most cosmetic surgeries are just that: surgery. They can be intense procedures involving anesthesia, long recovery periods, and more before your amazing results are revealed. CoolSculpting is an incredible alternative to liposuction that is non-invasive, requires no recovery time, and encourages the body to naturally deal with undesired fat cells.

Because CoolSculpting is a bit of a lighter, less stressful experience, here are five fun facts you can quiz your doctor on during your procedure!

First, What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the perfect option for clients wishing to contour their body and remove stubborn areas of fat. A device that harnesses the power of low temperatures lightly draws fat cells toward the surface of the skin, and then freezes the cells. This initiates a process called cryolipolysis, which enables the fat cells to dissolve and be absorbed or expelled by the body. This process requires no incisions or anesthesia, but produces fantastic results.

CoolSculpting Fun Fact #1: It Began with a Popsicle

The process of cryolipolysis was discovered by two scientists who noticed children sucking on popsicles whose cheeks began to dimple. They discovered the dimple was created by the freezing temperatures being in close vicinity to the cheeks skin tissue, and that they were actually freezing the fat cells within. This allowed the fat to be eliminated. They realized this discovery was ground-breaking; thus, cryolipolysis, the foundational principle of CoolSculpting was born.

CoolSculpting Fun Fact #2: It Only Takes a Pinch!

How can you determine if the area of the body you’d like to target can be effectively dealt with by using CoolSculpting? It’s easy: can you pinch it? Areas like the stomach, bra line fat, thunder thighs, double chins, or love handles are all places that you can easily pinch the fat between your fingers. This is a quick, easy test to determine if your troublesome areas are ones that can be addressed by CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting Fun Fact #3: Move over Lipo-CoolSculpting Is Taking Over

CoolSculpting may be the new kid on the block, but it is swiftly taking over the neighborhood! CoolSculpting has quickly become the #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment worldwide. Studies have shown that not only are more and more people selecting CoolSculpting as their preferred method of fat reduction, but over 3 million clients have gone the CoolSculpting route.

CoolSculpting Fun Fact #4: There is Only One Target

For many plastic surgeries, there is always the concern that areas surrounding the targeted fat will be affected, whether by scarring, too much heat, or an imprecise removal. With CoolScuplting, your results are not dependent on how steady your doctor’s hands are, or even on their attentiveness to the procedure. CoolSculpting specifically targets fat cells that are isolated, and so will not affect any other tissues in the surrounding areas.

CoolSculpting Fun Fact #5: Those Fat Cells are GONE FOR GOOD!

One of the most positive benefits of CoolScuplting is that it works by dissolving the undesired fat, which allows it to be absorbed by the body. This means that those specific fat cells will be gone, never to be seen again. CoolSculpting is approved by the American Food and Drug Accosiation for permanent fat removal. CoolSculpting can dispose of up to 20% of body fat for good.
