Why CoolSculpting Should Be Your Go-To Summer Beauty Treatment

Gone are the days when needles, scars, and long recovery times were a necessary part of cosmetic procedures. The beauty industry has come a long way with ingenious inventions that replicate invasive procedures with less painful and quicker alternatives. One such non-invasive innovation is the CoolSculpting procedure, whose popularity is growing exponentially among A-listers as a speedy and effective alternative to liposuction. Summer is upon us, and that means showing more skin with strapless tops, shorter hemlines, and bikinis. And with CoolSculpting results, any problem areas with fat that just won’t seem to budge – regardless of how much you exercise or diet – can be swept away.

What is CoolSculpting

The technical term for CoolSculpting is cryolipolysis, which simply means “fat freezing”. For trouble spots such as belly fat or love handles, CoolSculpting provides long-term results by freezing fat cells that are then naturally eliminated from your body within two to six months. The ideal candidates for the procedure are people who have stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to exercise or diet.

4 Excellent Reasons to Choose CoolSculpting for Summer

One of a Kind Technology

Developed by Harvard University scientists, the CoolSculpting procedure comes from one of the leading global aesthetic companies. CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to carefully target fat cells and destroy them without damaging the tissue around the treated area. The technique does this by pulling up the tissue with a vacuum-like suction to keep it isolated from the freezing process.

Improvement Apparent in as Little as Six Weeks

Unlike an invasive liposuction procedure, CoolSculpting allows your body to use its natural processes to remove fat cells. This means that CoolSculpting results won’t be apparent immediately but will instead become apparent in about six weeks. However, don’t let this discourage you. The CoolSculpting procedure offers long-term results because your body will continue to eliminate targeted fat cells for as long as 6 months after treatment.

Quick and Painless

No worries about recovering indoors from cosmetic procedures this summer. A CoolSculpting session lasts for about 35 minutes, depending on the trouble spot treated. Typically, there is no down time at all after the CoolSculpting procedure.


There are various applicators available, so you and your CoolSculpting professional can design and execute a treatment plan targeted to fit your specific needs. Everyone’s body is different when it comes to where it stores fat. Before you ever begin your CoolSculpting treatment, you will consult with a medical professional in order to discuss your desired results and target areas. It is also during this initial consultation that you will discuss whether or not you may need more than one CoolSculpting cycle.


CoolSculpting freezes and kills your fat cells, then your body naturally flushes these dead fat cells out over time – with no needles, downtime, or anesthesia. It’s quick, simple, and effective to sculpt those trouble spots that just aren’t responding to diet or exercise.
