Does CoolSculpting Work? Here’s Everything You Need To Know.

After seeing the ads and reading the reviews, fat freezing can still seem too good to be true, leaving people with the same question, does CoolSculpting work?

The answer is a resounding – absolutely! Yet, rather than take our word for it, in today’s blog we will be sharing some of the insightful background information behind the world’s #1 non-invasive fat elimination procedure; and why we are so confident CoolSculpting can help you achieve your best body ever!

We’d invite you to grab your favorite low-calorie beverage and explore with us exactly why CoolSculpting works so well, along with a bit of the science and data that back up the results.

We know you have questions, and luckily in today’s post we have plenty of answers – so let’s get started!

Does CoolSculpting Work? 7 Million+ Procedures Worldwide Doesn’t Lie

Since receiving FDA approval in 2008, there have been over 7 million CoolSculpting treatments performed – because it simply works! While many imitators and competitors have come and gone, not a single one can claim the long-term, proven effective results or popularity of CoolSculpting.

Over seven million treatments. That’s a lot of love handles, bra rolls, and stubborn abdomen pouches…

Most of the copycats on the market today use inferior technology – such as sonic waves or lasers – to remove fat while damaging or even killing other tissue in the process, which means a less focused treatment approach and longer downtime for the patient. CoolSculpting, however, does not damage any other cells or tissue. Only your fat cells are crystallized and removed.

Often imitated, but never replicated – when it comes to something as personal as your figure, trust only the very best technology available.

Here’s How & Why CoolSculpting Gets Results

CoolSculpting is not a gimmick diet, a fad product or an invasive treatment. It’s a non-invasive, no-downtime procedure that freezes your fat cells to destroy them, which then allows your body to permanently remove them through natural processes – meaning those stubborn areas of fat can be gone for good.

Although diet and exercise allow you to shrink the size of your fat cells, the non-invasive technology of CoolSculpting (as well as surgical fat reduction procedures, namely liposuction) allows you to reduce the number of fat cells present once and for all.

Did you know that there’s more than one type of fat in the human body? CoolSculpting is uniquely designed to target subcutaneous fat – the stubborn “white fat” that’s most resistant to even the most vigorous workout routine. You can learn all about the different kinds of fat (and why CoolSculpting is perfect for those hard-to-address areas) in our blog post Not All Fat Is Created Equal

Best of all, this can all happen in a procedure that’s a quick as 35-minutes, meaning you can get back to your day without discomfort, time off work, or surgery. Many of our guests love to relax with their favorite Netflix shows or catch up on emails during their treatment!

Although many guests begin to see reduction of fat in the weeks following their first visit, it typically takes 2-3 months for results to fully appear; as your body gradually eliminates the destroyed fat cells in a safe and effective way.

Yes, this all sounds great, but why take our word for it?

With over 100 independent, peer-reviewed publications that confirm the efficacy and safety of CoolSculpting technology. As the only FDA-cleared cryolipolysis (fat freezing) device available today, you can rest assured that you’ve found the very best non-invasive solution to eliminate those trouble areas of fat.

Clinical trials have observed over 5,500 study participants across the globe, and time and time again the same results are demonstrated – a high patient satisfaction rate, scientifically and clinically sound technology, and consistent results.

Of note, the study “Safety, tolerance, and patient satisfaction with noninvasive cryolipolysis,” as published in the Journal of Dermatological Surgery, shared the following:

The researchers found, “No significant side effects or adverse events were reported,” and reported, “the procedure was well-tolerated, with 89% of respondents reporting a positive perception of treatment duration and 96% reporting minimal to tolerable discomfort.”

In addition, these researchers found that “With proper patient selection, cryolipolysis is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective treatment method for reduction of subcutaneous fat.”

Published in the Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, another study titled, Cryolipolysis For Noninvasive Body Contouring further evidence both the high degree of safety and efficacy offered by CoolSculpting, stating that, “Cryolipolysis has been proven to be a very safe method for body contouring, and is accomplished with only minimal discomfort.”

In one clinical study, as published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, the results of CoolSculpting were proven to be long-lasting – with the right lifestyle, you can feel confident that your results and sculpted figure will endure the test of time.

CoolSculpting Can Be The Perfect Lifestyle Catalyst

For many of our patients at Sculptology, seeing the results of their CoolSculpting transformation is exactly the “jumpstart” they need into a healthy, wellness-focused lifestyle. In fact, by pairing your CoolSculpting treatments with an active lifestyle and balanced way of eating you are able to take advantage of what we refer to as the “fat-blasting trifecta”.

The Truth About CoolSculpting Side Effects – And What You Should Expect

Before undergoing a fat freezing treatment, discerning patients want to know about CoolSculpting side effects. By now, you probably know all about the incredible before-and-after results of CoolSculpting, but odds are that you’re looking to learn a bit more about the treatment itself, and exactly what to expect during and after your treatment.

Since CoolSculpting uses proven-safe, non-invasive technology to eliminate fat cells from your body; there are several healing processes that take place as your results begin to appear and improve over the 2-3 months following your treatment.

Learn more about CoolSculpting >>

As your results (and best body ever!) take shape, here is what happens as your body eliminates stubborn fat and what each step of the process means for you, both in results and CoolSculpting side effects:

What to Expect Immediately After Your Treatment

  • A brief “tingle” sensation – Right after each CoolSculpting treatment, you may feel a tingling sensation once your CoolSculpting applicator is removed – although in most cases, by the time you are on your way home this sensation will have already subsided.

What to Expect In the First Few Days

  • Minor swelling – As part of recovery, your body will bring additional blood flow and fluids to the treated area, which may lead to swelling in the area(s) that you’ve had treated. If this occurs, it will typically take place in the days following treatment.
  • A sensitive or numb sensation to the touch – In the initial recovery phase, many patients describe this as a numb sensation and that skin may be sensitive to touch. Generally, within 1-2 weeks following treatment this will go away completely.

What to Expect In the Coming Weeks

  • Occasional tingling or itch sensations – As the nerves in your treated areas adjust to normal following your treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to “pins and needles”. Rest assured that this is normal, and not a sign of any nerve damage or adverse effects. For some patients this sensation feels more like an itch.
  • Restroom Habits – As the body safely and gradually eliminates fat cells from the body, some patients report that they need to use the restroom more frequently.

Tips to Make Your CoolSculpting Journey as Smooth As Possible

While the vast majority of patients at Sculptology find the recovery after their fat freezing treatment to be hassle-free and very easy, the following tips can prove useful to avoid any possible discomfort and decrease your risk of CoolSculpting side effects:

  • Avoid tight or binding clothing – Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that is not too tight in those areas where your treatment was performed.
  • Heating & Cooling Of Your Treatment Area – Some patients may find applying heat eases any discomfort in their treatment areas, while others prefer a cooling sensation from a cold pack.
  • Keep hydrated – part of a wellness-focused lifestyle is drinking enough water, and that is especially important during your CoolSculpting recovery phase. Staying hydrated will help your lymphatic system effectively eliminate the destroyed fat cells. You may even want to enjoy staying hydrated and refreshed in your Sculptology water bottle, one of the gifts we love sharing with new patients!
  • Avoid Ibuprofen and anti-inflammatory medication – During your CoolSculpting recovery, avoiding anti-inflammatory medication (such as Ibuprofen) is key, as your body’s inflammatory response is how fat cells are eliminated. Tylenol can be used during your recovery phase without an issue.
  • Stay well-rested – another key element to a healthy lifestyle is getting enough sleep. During your CoolSculpting recovery, this is even more important because it ensures your body can recover as promptly as possible.

What Does The Research Say About CoolSculpting Side Effects?

Clinical trials have observed over 5,500 study participants across the globe, and time and time again the same results are demonstrated – a high patient satisfaction rate, scientifically and clinically sound technology, and consistent results.

Cool Sculpting & Sculptology – What’s the Difference, Anyways?

You say Cool Sculpting, we say Sculptology!

Perhaps you have seen one a Sculptology advertisement right here in Pleasanton, or heard about Cool Sculpting online or in the news. So, what exactly is the difference?

Although both words sound similar at first – they are in fact two very different things, that work together beautifully!

Together, let us take a few moments to break down and explore Cool Sculpting and Sculptology – and why they are the match that non-invasive fat-elimination dreams are made of!

You’ve heard about Cool Sculpting. You’ve seen advertisements for Cool Sculpting – but what exactly is Cool Sculpting?

To put it briefly, Cool Sculpting is the world’s leading non-invasive procedure to safely, comfortably and effectively eliminate stubborn fat that is not responsive to diet and exercise alone. To do this, Cool Sculpting uses its unique technology to freeze your fat cells, which your body then safely and gradually eliminates once and for all!

(If you’re curious to learn more about the specifics, be sure to explore the How Cool Sculpting Works page right here on the Sculptology website!)

With over 7 million treatments performed across the globe, and clinical studies showing results to last long-term – upwards of nine years – there is no better way to complement your active lifestyle and a balanced diet (we call it the “fat-blasting trifecta”) and achieve your best body ever!

Our patients love Cool Sculpting because it is both efficient (with treatments in as little as 35 minutes) and effective – without downtime, time away from work, needles or scalpels, or surgery. You can even catch up on your favorite Netflix shows or answer e-mails during your comfortable and hassle-free treatment!

With Cool Sculpting, in the weeks following your treatment you’ll begin to notice visible results – and the reduction in subcutaneous fat (if you’re not sure what that is, check out our blog article Not All Fat Is Created Equal”) in your trouble spots – including the thighs, love handles, bra roll area, back, and chin. You’ll feel more confident than ever, and dazzle in any outfit – and from every angle. It’s a proven treatment, and the world’s #1 way to eliminate stubborn fat because it simply works!

The best gets even better – because nobody in Alameda County knows Cool Sculpting better than Sculptology. Helping our patients achieve incredible results through Cool Sculpting is the only thing we do – all day, each and every day.

Lots of clinics may include Cool Sculpting among a laundry list of other treatments and services – where your nurse or provider may only perform Cool Sculpting treatments once or twice a week – or even only a few times each month.

At Sculptology, we are the undisputed leaders in Cool Sculpting – it’s the only thing we do. All of our staff is certified first-hand by Cool Sculpting University, with many holding certification from the Cool Sculpting Master’s program – the most advanced certification available from Allergan, the manufacturer of Cool Sculpting technology. In fact, only a few clinics in the entire country hold this elite credential. When it comes to your body, trust only the very best – and when it comes to Cool Sculpting, there is no better choice than Sculptology.

From the moment you walk into our chic, bright and inviting Pleasanton clinic, you’ll realize you have found somewhere very special. Forget the typical marble counters, waterfalls, and uptight attitude of other med spas – at Sculptology, we proudly refer to ourselves a #NoModelZone. No fitness-magazine bodies, no size 00 models…simply real people, getting real results thanks to Cool Sculpting.

To make things even more remarkable, we combine the power of Cool Sculpting with our game-changing 3D body scan technology. This allows us to compare your before and after results down to the last pixel – so you’ll be able to measure and marvel at the change in your body thanks to non-invasive fat elimination technology.

While we’re discussing ourselves, we can’t neglect our greater purpose – reducing stubborn fat is only the very beginning. With Sculptology Life, our outreach initiative, we are creating and engaged, active community of wellness enthusiasts.

We believe that feeling confident in your body can be a powerful first step towards better health and lasting results – and that a healthy community is a thriving community. It all begins with individual citizens dedicated to wellness, precisely what we foster through Sculptology Life.

A key pillar of Sculptology Life is our commitment to sports in the community. This is about so much more than the score – when our community is active and connected, we all win. As advocates and sponsors of sport across Pleasanton – including volleyball, soccer, and numerous youth teams – we’re not only encouraging an active lifestyle and community, we’re an engaged part of it.

A healthy community is also a connected community – and our entire team is dedicated to giving back, right here in Pleasanton. By being actively involved with organizations including The Gratitude Network and A Breeze of Hope we can ensure that while sculpting bodies may be what happens inside our facility, shaping our community is the true impact that we make outside of it.

Some things are simply more impactful together – instruments and vocals, movies and the big screen, artwork and exquisite frames – not to mention Cool Sculpting and Sculptology.

There is no better way to understand the Sculptology difference than to experience it for yourself. Learn more about freezing fat by contacting Sculptology online, by texting or calling (925) 329-6333 or emailing discover@sculptology.com.
