Where does the fat go during CoolSculpting?

It almost seems magical…without surgery, skin, pain or a long recovery period, CoolSculpting can transform your body and your self-esteem. CoolSculpting is a proven alternative to traditional, more invasive forms of fat reduction, such as Liposuction which gives patients great results, comfortably and safely. In fact, CoolSculpting is extremely comfortable, especially when compared to other treatments that produce similar results. You can have CoolSculpting during your lunch break and proceed with the rest of your day without any aftercare requirements.

With traditional liposuction, fat is removed from the body through small incisions and suction. After the procedure, small scars may be visible. Also, while liposuction is effective, it has its risks, although they are small. Also, with liposuction, you will have downtime which will vary depending on how much liposuction you have. CoolSculpting, however, is noninvasive and has no downtime.

If you prefer dieting or calories restriction, your body initiates lipolysis (the process by which fatty acids are mobilized and released into the bloodstream to be oxidized — burned — for energy), there are two major byproducts released besides triglycerides, namely carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O). CoolSculpting achieves the same result of lipolysis without the need for dieting. Plus, unlike dieting, with CoolSculpting, you control the areas of concern where fat reduction should occur.

CoolSculpting uses a unique freezing process called Cryolipolysis™ to target and kill fat cells in your treatment area which are later dispelled from the body. The process targets fat without damaging or freezing surrounding tissue and can especially benefit those who struggle with stubborn fat in the abdomen, flanks, upper back, thighs, and neck areas. It is important to note that every human body has a specific number of fat cells – accounted for fully by adolescence. The number of fat cells do not change, however their size may.  CoolSculpting essentially kills the number of fat cells, so there are less of them in your body.  Fat cells compromised by CoolSculpting become a waste product and then are processed by the lymphatic system and eliminated from the body permanently.

These fat cells will not be regenerated by the body. The elimination of dead fat cells is a gradual process which will occur naturally and safely in the several weeks following your CoolSculpting treatment, leaving you to enjoy greater slimness and tone in the areas where you have had the treatment.
