CoolSculpting: Get the Body You Want Without the Pesky Gym Membership

Struggling to get rid of stubborn fat that even the most dedicated diet and intensive exercise can’t seem to erase? 

Enter CoolSculpting, a popular option for people who want to eliminate fat without missing work or spending countless hours in the gym—and for very good reason! In recent years, CoolSculpting has proven to be one of the most effective noninvasive fat reduction and body contouring methods available. 

If you’re considering CoolSculpting treatments to help you achieve your dream body, you likely have a few questions about how it works and what to expect. Let’s dive in!

What is CoolSculpting, and how does it work?

CoolSculpting was developed around the science of cryolipolysis, the use of cold temperatures to kill fat cells. Lipids inside fat cells freeze, causing the fat cells to break down and be flushed out naturally via the lymphatic system. Eliminating dead fat cells helps get rid of stubborn fat when diet and exercise just aren’t doing the trick.

During a CoolSculpting treatment, a Vitalyc body expert applies an applicator to the CoolSculpting device that delivers cooling over the target area. Treatment is safe, quick, and comfortable, with no recovery time required. It only takes 35-45 minutes per treated area, meaning in less than an hour, you can be on your way out the door, with no need to miss work or arrange for help with daily activities such as childcare and chores. Each Vitalyc location has the ability to dual-sculpt, meaning you can treat up to two areas at once for even faster results!

Painful side effects are also virtually nonexistent. At most, you might temporarily feel tenderness, numbness, or a mild pulling sensation during treatment. In fact, treatments are so comfortable that many people use a mobile device, read, or even sleep during them. Each Vitalyc treatment room is equipped with streaming channels for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy your favorite show during treatment.


Which areas of the body does CoolSculpting treat? 

CoolSculpting can be used to treat almost any part of the body that has stubborn, unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. If you can pinch it, we can freeze it! The most commonly treated areas are:

  • Abdominal fat
  • Love handles
  • Muffin top
  • Double chin
  • Neck fat
  • Back fat
  • Buttocks fat
  • Inner/outer thigh fat
  • Distal thigh fat
  • Upper knee fat
  • Upper arm fat
  • Male chest fat


What results can you expect from CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting results are so impressive that they probably seem too good to be true to many—but that’s not the case. Results are equally impressive and long-lasting. (Check out CoolSculpting before and after photos to see for yourself!)


Most people begin to notice their CoolSculpting results around three weeks after treatment. A maximum of 4-6 months is necessary to allow all treated fat cells to be filtered out. After that, you should see a permanent fat reduction of approximately 20-25 percent in treated areas. 

One thing that’s important to note is that although CoolSculpting permanently kills the fat cells, it is a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss treatment. Poor diet and exercise can lead to new fluctuations in weight. You can maintain your results by making healthy lifestyle choices following your CoolSculpting procedure.


Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you are within 5-10 pounds of your target weight with pinchable fat that you would like to get rid of, you might be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. If you don’t have pinchable fat, CoolSculpting isn’t the right procedure for you.

You may also not be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you have any of the following health conditions: 

  • Raynaud’s disease
  • Poor circulation in target areas
  • Open wounds
  • Infected wounds
  • Nerve damage
  • Hernia
  • Pregnancy/breastfeeding
  • Implanted medical devices near the desired treatment area
