Cryolipolysis is the scientific foundation that allows Coolsculpting to a safe and effective way to remove fat in areas not significantly affected by exercising and dieting. Cryolipolysis creates a reductive response to cold, which means that cold is used to break down fatty tissue. The process causes fat cells to die slowly while leaving the surrounding muscle, nerves, and tissue unaffected. Dying fat cells are taken to the lymphatic system that filters the cells out as waste over the course of several months.
Coolsculpting is designed to work on specific parts of the body, such as the chin, belly, or arms. Handheld applicators are placed on the body in desired areas. For arms, the doctor will put the applicators on one-by-one. Each applicator will administer controlled cooling for the targeted fat cells. The devices are moved over the skin during the administration process, so all target areas are exposed to the cold.
During the process, a patient will feel a pinching and pulling sensation, but most people claim that overall pain is relatively minimal. Massages are sometimes given after treatments to help to break up fat cells stuck in deep tissues. The whole session should take about 35 minutes per arm. During that time, you will be able to read, listen to music, or do some work.
