The way it works is very simple; fat cells are very sensitive to cold temperatures, more so than other cells in your body. Coolsculpting basically targets fat cells and freezes them without harming non-fat cells in the area. The frozen fat cells are crystallized and die off gradually over time. When the fat cells are dead, they are naturally flushed out of the body. This happens over a span of three to six months.

CoolSculpting isn’t meant to be an alternative form of weight loss, but rather a safe way in which to reduce the unwanted pockets of fat. You should know that this procedure is only for small pockets of fat, like your love handles or muffin top.
