Imagine losing a fatty abdomen, love handles, or even a double chin without undergoing surgery. This is what CoolSculpting offers. It’s a groundbreaking, non-surgical fat loss and body contouring procedure that helps remove persistent, unwanted fat — slimming the physique without invasive surgery. Developed by scientists at Harvard, the CoolSculpting Elite device in Baton Rouge freezes and kills the unwanted fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Fat cells are averse to extremely cold temperatures, and the CoolSculpting Elite technology includes applicators that freeze the targeted fat cells via a process called cryolipolysis (fat freezing).
The procedure involves applying controlled cooling to the area where you want to reduce fat and freezing a percentage of the fat cells in the area — which kills them. And don’t worry, your body has about 30 billion fat cells. Losing some causes no harm.
The frozen fat cells are eventually metabolized and expelled by your body’s natural processes in 1-3 months. The procedure removes approximately 25% of the fat from targeted regions in a single session. While you do need patience to see the results, once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone forever.
