Can Cold Really Reduce Belly Fat?
It’s common to be skeptical about methods that reduce fat without requiring you to exercise or diet. But you can feel confident knowing that scientific studies have proven that this cooling treatment can reduce the stubborn fat on your belly that you haven’t been able to reduce on your own. That’s why the FDA has specifically approved this treatment for people who are struggling with belly fat.
Proven Scientific Results
This powerful cooling method can dramatically improve those troublesome areas of fat that are difficult for you to alter through lifestyle changes. In fact, case reports have shown that this cooling technology may produce a 20% to 25% decrease in the amount of fat in a targeted area.
How Does It Work?
This treatment uses innovative cooling technology to target and reduce stubborn areas of fat on people’s bodies. These treatments allow people to transform their bodies where lifestyle changes aren’t working and don’t seem to make a difference.
It’s very common for people to have areas of “stubborn fat” that they aren’t able to reduce or remove by themselves. For instance, people may eliminate snacks from their diets, exercise every day, and still have frustrating pockets of fat on their thighs, bellies, and other areas of their bodies.
These areas of “stubborn fat” may persist because the number of fat cells in a person’s body is established when they are young. Although the fat cells will increase or decrease in size as a person gains or loses weight, the number of cells doesn’t change once the person becomes an adult.
Stubborn Fat Varies
We are all different, and people store stubborn fat in a variety of areas on their bodies. However, many people have pockets of unwanted fat on their abdomens, thighs, and flanks. These areas are often difficult to alter through lifestyle changes. It’s common for these areas to be unresponsive even to dramatic changes in a person’s diet and exercise program.
Over several years, scientists have worked hard to create an innovative cooling method that allows people to reduce stubborn fat that people struggle to change on their own. This treatment uses a process called cryolipolysis, or fat freezing.
Freezing Body Fat
This cooling technology takes advantage of the unique freezing point of body fat. The fat cells in a person’s body freeze at a higher temperature than their other cells. This means that a cooling treatment can specifically target the fat cells in a person’s body without harming the tissue that surrounds those fat cells.
This treatment uses precise cooling technology to remove the fat cells that lie under a person’s skin. The cooling treatment lowers the temperature of the fat cells in the target areas, which makes them crystalize, or freeze. This causes the cells to begin a process known as apoptosis, or cell death. During this process, the fat cells will die. Over several weeks or months, the person’s body will remove the dead fat cells gradually and naturally. When this process is complete, the person’s body will be more sculpted.
What Areas of My Body Can This Cooling Treatment Affect?
This technology has been specifically designed to target areas of the body where people have stubborn fat that can be very difficult to address through lifestyle changes. The FDA has approved this treatment for use on fat under people’s jawlines and chins. The FDA also has approved this method to help people address unwanted fat on their thighs, belly, and flanks. This cooling technology can also be used to reduce fat underneath a person’s buttocks, on their upper arms, and on their back.

What Is a Treatment Session Like?
You need not be nervous about receiving your treatments! This cooling treatment is quick and non-invasive.
The First Step
Prior to your treatment, you will attend a one-on-one consultation. During this consultation, you will discuss your medical history and fat-reduction goals. Our medical professionals will put you at ease, answer your questions, and develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
The Second Step
You don’t have to do very much to prepare for your treatment session. You should plan to wear comfortable, loose clothing to your treatment session. You may also want to bring work materials, a book, or music to listen to while you receive the cooling treatment.
The Final Step
To begin your treatment, a medical professional will put an applicator on the area of your body where you wish to reduce fat. At the start of the cooling process, you will feel a sensation of intensive cold and pressure. This feeling is very brief, and it will decrease as your body adjusts to the cooling process. Many patients find the process to be very calming and relaxing. They may work, read, watch television, or even sit back and take a quick nap while they receive their treatments.
After the cooling is complete, the applicator will be removed. Your medical professional will then massage the treated area of your body to break up the fat cells. This massage will increase the number of cells that the treatment removes. The treatment is complete after your massage. You can leave the appointment and immediately return to your daily activities.
In the weeks and months that follow the treatment, your body will slowly eliminate the dead fat cells. This process is natural, and it occurs with no action on your part. It is a very gradual process. Since it occurs slowly, you can go about your daily life as your body eliminates these cells. You don’t have to change your routine or take a break from your typical activities while this process occurs.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Dr. Young and his staff will design a personalized treatment plan that will enable you to achieve your specific fat-reduction goals. These plans will be different for every person. The treatments needed will depend on the areas of the body that you wish to affect, the amount of fat that you want to remove, and other factors. Some people will receive multiple sessions, while others will only need a single treatment to get their desired results.
How Quickly Can I Return to My Normal Activities?
It’s common to worry about the downtime involved when receiving a treatment of this sort, but you don’t have to take time off from work or interrupt your life to receive the benefits of this treatment. CoolSculpting treatments are quick and non-invasive. Typically, people can resume their jobs, exercise routines, and other activities immediately after receiving a treatment session. In fact, many people return to their jobs immediately after their treatment sessions.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Don’t worry if you don’t see results right away! It usually takes people’s bodies a few weeks to process and eliminate the dead, frozen fat cells. After the body removes these fat cells, the affected areas should look flatter and firmer. Everyone is different, and people will see results at varying times. Some people will notice changes to their bodies within three weeks after their treatments. Although people typically see the most significant changes after two months, your body will continue to eliminate fat cells for four to six months after receiving treatment.
You don’t have to worry that the fat cells will return after your treatment! People love this cooling method because freezing effects are permanent. The fat cells removed by the treatment will not regenerate. However, it’s important to know that a good diet and plenty of exercise can help you maintain the sleek, firm body that the treatment provides.
Is this a Safe Way to Transform My Body?
Many people are nervous when they begin a body sculpting treatment. Fortunately, you can feel at ease when you use this method to remove unwanted fat.
