One of the earliest non-surgical fat-reduction treatment to have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Coolsculpting is extremely useful for targeting the stubborn, long-term bulges not only in the midriff but also thigh, back of arm, back, as well as the irritating double chin.
The technology is born from a very simple concept: that fat cells can be killed by extreme cold without affecting the rest of the cells in the region. The procedure uses a machine to freeze the fat cells in a specific region on the body, killing them in the process. After which, the body would absorb the dead fat cells over time, leaving the region with a reduced number of fat cells, stunting the growth of fat in the region.

The method of this technique is different from usually weight loss procedures, as fat cells are killed, rather than shrunk. Typically, when a patient exercises, their fat cells would get smaller as the lipids in the cells are slowly expended for energy.
With the use of Coolsculpting technology, the fat cells are completely removed from the area, completely preventing any further growth of fat. It is highly recommended that patients continue on a healthy diet and exercise routine after the treatment, as the remaining fats can still grow.
The treatment is simple, short and extremely comfortable. Patients only need to enter the aesthetic clinic once for about an hour per spot of treatment. It destroys on average 25% of fat cells in the area treated and is a walk-in, walk-out treatment with zero downtime.
Primary results can be expected after a few weeks, while full results after thetreatment can be expected after a few months.
