It is impossible to spot-treat through exercise and diet alone. If you have been struggling with stubborn fat, CoolSculpting may be a solution for you. What is CoolSculpting? It is an FDA-cleared non-surgical medical procedure that destroys fat by freezing it. A technician uses a handheld device that applies controlled cooling to freeze fat cells in targeted areas. This cooling effect ultimately kills fat cells. The body’s lymphatic system naturally rids them in the form of waste.

The handheld applicator combines suction and cooling to freeze off fat cells in different parts of the body like the stomach, thighs, and upper arms. Men and women enjoy CoolSculpting because they can achieve a more toned-looking body without going under the knife or working out tirelessly at the gym for months.

Lindsay Malachowski, the operations manager at SKINNEY Medspa believes CoolSculpting is the “most effective, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that exists on the market. She explains that the procedure involves “literally freezing your fat cells” to destroy them via cryotherapy.

According to Malachowski, CoolSculpting has “little to no downtime” unlike a more invasive procedure like liposuction, and “most people are a good candidate for the procedure.
