CoolSculpting also called as cryolipolysis is the only nonsurgical way approved by FDA for removing fat from a body. In this process, a plastic surgeon with the help of a device will freeze the fat cells under the skin. After the fat cells are destroyed, they will slowly break down and then will be removed through the liver.
Sculpting is successful cosmetic weight loss procedures and per treatment area will cost you about $1000 for CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting will reduce fat in the area by around 20-25 percent. Some people notice the changes and results after a few days of the treatment, but usually, it takes around 1-4 months for the results to show up fully.
CoolSculpting is a safe procedure compared to other invasive fat reduction techniques. Other than experiencing tugging sensation on the skin between the cooling panels, most people can’t feel anything.
