The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared,* non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle.
The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. To learn even more, ask your WomanCare Aesthetics physician if CoolSculpting is right for you.
Fat Reduction vs Weight Loss
It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS. The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells
Fat Cells After Typical Weight Loss
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger.
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 there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.*

How Your Body Processes Fat Cells After CoolSculpting Treatment
This image represents a normal fat cell.
As CoolSculpting treatment is applied, the fat cell freezes and starts to die.
During the process of cell death, the fat cell begins to collapse.
Over the next few weeks, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed & eliminated from the body.
How Your Body Processes Fat From Food
The fat you eat in food...
..travels through your digestive system...
...and then to the liver. Processed fat is the energy source for your body. Excess fat is stored in fat cells.
