FAQ About CoolSculpting
1. Can You Actually Freeze Fat?
Yes. It is absolutely possible to freeze fat. In fact, with the CoolSculpting device, freezing fat is quick, convenient, and comfortable. Even better, CoolSculpting allows you to target the pockets of excess fat that you’re trying to get rid of. This way, you no longer have to wonder where you will reduce fat from next.
2. Can You Freeze Excess Fat Anywhere?
With CoolSculpting, you can freeze excess fat from pretty much anywhere. The original device was designed to efficiently and effectively treat large regions of your body, like your abdomen, back, or chest. However, there are now smaller devices that are designed to target smaller parts of your body, such as your:
3. At What Temperature Can You Freeze Fat?
The coolest thing about freezing fat is temperatures don’t need to dip below the freezing point of water. In fact, fat has a much higher freezing point than water. To freeze your excess fat cells, the CoolSculpting device cools your fat cells to 39 degrees.
Another cool thing about CoolSculpting is there is no risk of skin damage. First, your skin doesn’t get damaged by the cold until temperatures drop below 32 degrees. Second, we apply a special gel to your skin to ensure your comfort during treatment and provide an extra layer of protection from the cold that penetrates the deepest layers of your skin.
4. How Quickly Does the Treatment Work?
White fat cells start freezing to death when they reach 41 degrees Fahrenheit, a full nine degrees above the freezing point of water! The CoolSculpting device will cool your skin to this point approximately 15 minutes into your 35-minute session.
5. How Soon Will I See the Results of Treatment?
You will start to see the results of treatment approximately four weeks after your first session. It takes this long for your lymphatic system to start flushing the dead, frozen fat cells from your body. However, depending on how strong your circulatory and lymphatic systems are, as well as how healthy you are, it can take up to six months to see the final results.
