If you live a healthy lifestyle but still have unwanted belly fat then you’re not alone. A lot of people mistakenly believe that visible fat on the body is only caused by overeating or a poor lifestyle but this is not the case. Genetics play a key role in how and where fat is stored on your body but luckily there is a way to combat stubborn pockets of fat on the belly and other parts of the body.

How does coolSculpting work to get rid of belly fat?

CoolSculpting is a relatively new type of cosmetic treatment where fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, which causes them to become crystallized and eventually removed from the body in a completely natural way. The idea behind CoolSculpting was discovered by accident when two Harvard scientists found that children who ate popsicles to ease teething pain were developing dimples in their cheeks.

Is it safe?

Yes, CoolSculpting is a very safe procedures. Because it’s completely non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no risk of infection. This makes it an excellent alternative to alternatives, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck.

Is it painful?

You will feel some pressure and cold during the treatment session but for most people, it’s very tolerable. In fact it’s not uncommon for people to read a book or use their laptop/tablet while the treatment is being administered.

How long until I see results?

CoolSculpting provides long term results and once the fat cells are removed from your body, they’re gone for good providing you continue to maintain a healthy weight. However it does take some time to see the results of CoolSculpting since the fat cells need to be removed by the body naturally over time. Most patients start to see results around the third week following treatment. Results can continue to be seen for up to six months however.
