Is CoolSculpting a Way to Lose Weight?

To understand whether or not CoolSculpting is a way to lose weight, one must first understand the difference between losing weight and losing fat. In short, no, CoolSculpting is not a way to lose weight, but it is a way to reduce fat cells and achieve a slimmer physique.

So, what’s the difference?

Losing Weight vs. Losing Fat

Most people have a set amount of fat cells inside their bodies by the time they are teenagers. When a person gains weight, these fat cells grow larger. When a person loses weight, the fat cells shrink. Gaining or losing weight as a result of lifestyle choices, however, does not actually reduce or increase the number of fat cells inside the body; lifestyle choices simply affect their size.

Since these fat cells remain in the body, many individuals find that no matter how healthy they eat and how much they exercise, they cannot eliminate this stubborn fat from their bodies.

Different from simply losing weight, CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in the body, helping healthy individuals achieve the slimmer physique they want.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Hence the name, CoolSculpting uses the cold to reduce the number of fat cells inside the body. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells inside the body. This allows a doctor to use a device to target fat cells.

When frozen with the CoolSculpting device, fat cells die and are eventually processed and eliminated from the body. After a CoolSculpting treatment, patients will see results progress over the following weeks, as the body processes the targeted frozen fat cells.
