CoolSculpting Freezes & Eliminates Stubborn Fat

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-freezing treatment. CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise. This means no incisions, no scars, and no downtime!

How does CoolSculpting work?

The way CoolSculpting works is by targeting certain areas of the body and exposing them to very cold temperatures. The cooling process used in CoolSculpting causes the fat cells to crystalize and gradually die off. The dead fat cells are then naturally processed by the body and excreted over a period of six to 12 weeks, leading to a trimmer figure.

Fat Cells After the CoolSculpting Procedure

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.

These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.

History about CoolSculpting Richmond

Scientists at Harvard observed that toddlers who were using popsicles in order to cope with teething pain were developing dimples in their cheeks as a result. This discovery led to the development of the CoolSculpting treatment and the devices that are used in clinics today are based on this principle.
