CoolSculpting is a non-surgical method of eliminating stubborn areas of fat. The treatment "freezes" fat through a process called cryolipolysis, in which targeted fat cells are destroyed, leaving behind a slimmer, sleeker you. It’s the only procedure approved by the FDA for eliminating fat through controlled freezing. The freezing process crystallizes targeted fat cells, which eventually disappear through your body’s natural elimination processes. These fat cells are permanently destroyed, and non fat cells aren't affected. While CoolSculpting is ideal for targeting specific areas of the body, it’s less effective for people who are too thin or obese. Commonly targeted areas include the stomach, love handles, underarms, the chin, back , inner and outer thighs, and even above the knee.
