We all want to have that body sculpted to perfection, but sometimes, diet and exercises are just not enough to reach this goal. There is always that stubborn fat that won’t go away no matter how much effort you put into it, but luckily, CoolSculpting® is here to save the day.

But who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting®, and is it the right option for you? We have the answers to your questions because, in this blog, we will talk about CoolSculpting® and go through its benefits.

What Is CoolSculpting® and How Does It Work?

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that uses cryolipolysis. The fat cells go through a process called cold-induced fat necrosis, and over time, they will be naturally removed by your immune system, helping you to lose a few pounds in the treatment area.

This non-invasive treatment is used as an alternative to liposuction. Since no surgery is involved, you will likely be able to return to your daily tasks immediately. At most, you will feel some slight sensitivity to your skin, a sensation that should go away shortly after your treatment session.

Areas Commonly Treated with CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is a great option if you have stubborn fat pockets in different areas of your body, such as:

  • Outer and inner thighs
  • Lower and upper abdomen
  • Love handles (flanks)
  • Upper neck and chin area (double chin)
  • Back fat
  • Buttocks and the area underneath (banana rolls)
  • Arms and underneath your armpits

CoolSculpting® can be a good method to eliminate bulging fat areas that do not respond to dieting and exercising. So, if you’ve reached a point where you are relatively happy with your weight but still feel bothered by certain areas, then CoolSculpting® might be a great option for you.

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

You may be an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting® if:

  • You’ve Got Enough Fat to Treat:CoolSculpting® freezes the fat to remove it, so naturally, you should have enough fat for the treatment to work. As a general rule of thumb, if you can pinch about one inch of your body fat, then you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting®.
  • You’ve Had Enough of Those Stubborn Fat Pockets:Fat does not always “cooperate.” You may be at a healthy weight, but you can still see areas of your body that have annoying, excess fat and no matter how much you exercise or how many salads you eat, they don’t go away. In this situation, CoolSculpting® can be a solution for you to get rid of that fat for good!
