- CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-surgical fat reduction device that uses precisely controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells.
- CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity; instead, it is designed for spot treatment of "problem" areas such as love handles, back fat, bra rolls, and stomach rolls.
- A typical CoolSculpting session lasts 60 minutes.
- During the procedure, the doctor gently pinches the fatty area between the CoolSculpting applicator arms. The applicator then cools the area to a temperature that causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, but which does not harm surrounding tissue.
