Have you guys heard of Cool Sculpting? I have to admit, I hadn’t until I received a note about this in my inbox. Here’s some info about Cool Sculpting:
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, FDA-cleared and non-invasive procedure that gently and effectively reduces fat in problem areas of the body. This results in noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas for men and women. What makes CoolSculpting different than other fat reduction procedures is its patented cooling technology that targets and eliminates fat cells.
During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of your body. When fat cells are exposed to cooling, it triggers a process of natural removal, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients in two months.
Heres a video that will explainCoolSculpting with a little more detail.

After the procedure some patients experience redness, tingling, bruising or numbness in the treated areas, but these are temporary and not experienced by all patients.
In approximately 50 reported cases out of 115,000 treatments, patients experienced more severe pain during and/or after treatment. In this case, patients are to contact their provider immediately. In 100% of cases, pain has naturally subsided over time and there have been no long-term effects of treatment. If discomfort is severe, your provider may prescribe an oral medication or topical anesthetic to help ease the effects until they go away naturally.
Q: WHAT CAN PEOPLE EXPECT IN TERMS OF FAT REDUCTION WHAT IS THE AVERAGE OUTCOME?
A: In all CoolSculpting cases, patients will experience an undeniable reduction in fat in the area treated. However, visible results can vary based on the patients initial fat deposits in the area treated.
