How CoolSculpting Works?

Knowing if it works is simple enough.

That frozen section will eventually die out resulting in a twenty to twenty-five percent fat reduction in that area.

The twenty to twenty-five percent reductions in fat seems impressive at first blush. However, it must be remembered that the fat freezing procedure only freezes an area the size of a stick of butter mentioned above. This means that in reality the fat taken killed off is only a few millimeters at best.

That’s why this procedure is not meant for those who have excessive amounts of body fat. With the small amount of fat that this process can kill and thus remove, it won’t be effective for obese people who want to get rid of the fat and lose weight. Ideally, the people this whole process is targeted to are those who are relatively healthy but have stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much exercise or dieting they do.
