What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic process that works to remove excess fat cells in stubborn places of the body. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq works by freezing fat cells in a targeted area; a process scientifically called Cryolipolysis®*. This treatment kills fat cells in a treated area, which sounds impossible, we know, but patients have reported losing up to 2 inches in a single treatment* with no recovery time needed. CoolSculpting is a great way to get rid of that stubborn fat that won’t go away, and with the help of CoolSculpting in Milwaukee and Waukesha, you could be on your way to seeing fast, proven results.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. They discovered that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more susceptible to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue*.

These Harvard studies confirmed that you can freeze fat away*. When exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, fat cells die and the amount of fat you have is reduced permanently*. Once these fat cells die, they cannot come back*. This is why CoolSculpting is like a non-surgical lipo (liposuction)*.

Depending upon the amount of fat reduction you desire, and amount of fat excess you are starting with, the treatment may be repeated more than one time to reach your CoolSculpting results goal*. After you freeze the fat, it takes a few months for the full result to become apparent*.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?

The great thing about the CoolSculpting procedure is that the results will last for a long while. Like we’ve talked before, this treatment is centered around destroying fat cells, and once those fat cells are gone they cannot return. Just because the fat cells are gone, though, does not mean that you wont gain fat if you maintain an unhealthy lifestyle. Make sure you work to live a healthy lifestyle so that the effects of CoolSculpting will last.

The Reason for Excess Body Fat

The number of fat cells is specific to you and varies from person to person, and can vary based on a few different factors. Some of the most common reasons for access body fat are:

  • Older Age

As we get older, it becomes more difficult to get rid of stubborn body fat.

  • Poor Diet and Exercise

If you maintain a proper diet and exercise routine, you are more likely to have a higher metabolism. As we age, though, our metabolism begins to slow, and a proper diet and exercise can help slow down this process.

  • Genetics

Sometimes it has nothing to do with the lifestyle you live, but more about what runs in your family. If you have close relatives with excessive fat in certain areas, there is more of a chance that you will have the same issue.

So what happens when your weight fluctuates?

When you start to gain weight, those fat cells expand, which in turn causes your waistline (and hips, and double chin, and thighs) to expand. When you eat healthy and exercise regularly, those fat cells shrink to give a slimmer and trimmer shape. If you stop those healthy habits, they will expand again, adding unwanted bulges.

Side Effects of CoolSculpting

Like any type of cosmetic procedure, there are things you will want to look out for. Before deciding on the CoolSculpting treatment, you will want to work with one of our licensed professionals to make sure you understand the risks. We want to make sure that you have a positive, comfortable experience with anything we do. Some side effects that may be present after the procedure can include redness, itchiness, muscle spasms or cramps. You can help reduce your risk of complications by closely following our instructions before and after the procedure.
