Freeze Fat: How CoolSculpting Works

Laying back and losing fat may sound like a scenario that is too good to be true, but many people in Chicago have discovered they can do just that with CoolSculpting®. This revolutionary technique for body sculpting can help people target those stubborn areas that tend to hang on to fat no matter how much they diet and exercise. This technique to freeze fat cells to the point that they can no longer function has helped millions of people worldwide.

How Does CoolSculpting® Freeze Fat?

The fat cells in our body can only withstand certain temperatures. When they are brought down to very low ones, they begin to crystallize and die. Once this happens, they are unable to store fat and it is released for your body to naturally flush out. These cells will not be able to store fat in the future. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your results with CoolSculpting® can be permanent. Rest assured that CoolSculpting® in Chicago does not bring the temperature of your skin and tissues down to a level that they can be damaged.

What to Expect with CoolSculpting® Treatments

The first step is to come in and have a consultation at our office in Chicago. This is where your goals can be discussed and we can determine how many treatment sessions will be necessary. When it comes time to freeze fat cells, you are encouraged to bring a book or play on your phone. While the cooling pad is on the target area doing its work, you will be reclined in a comfortable position.

After your treatment, you are free to resume all normal activities. You will not see the results from your treatment right away. This is because it takes your body a bit of time to flush out fat. On average, people start to notice results a few weeks after treatment. Peak improvements are generally noticed after a few months.
