How CoolSculpting® Works
Interestingly, the idea of cool sculpting began with children eating popsicles. While conducting experiments at Harvard University, researchers discovered that some children who consumed popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. This led Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. R. Rox Anderson to determine the popsicles were freezing small pockets of fat cells within the children’s cheeks without negatively affecting the surrounding tissue. This led to the discovery of cryolipolysis or the use of localized cold to freeze fat cells. Today, we know this science as CoolScultping®.
Using CoolSculpting® technology, the professionals at Colorado Laser Spa target and deliver precisely controlled cooling to freeze and eradicate stubborn fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. Over time, the treated fat cells gradually die off and are disposed of through your body’s natural processes. That means you can freeze your fat away for good!
Coolsculpting® procedures take between one and three hours per session. The number of sessions you will require may vary depending on the amount of work that you wish to have done and your body. It requires no anesthesia or recovery time and is virtually pain-free. Once we freeze your fat cells at our med spa, they disappear, leaving behind a more sculpted body.
Uses of CoolSculpting®
Body sculpting isn’t just for women. Many gentlemen have also experienced great success with CoolSculpting® for men. Regardless of sex, terrific results can be achieved on various areas of the body. Whether you want to lose belly fat, sculpt your inner or outer thighs, or get rid of the extra fat under your chin, the experienced professionals at our medical spa are here to assist you in achieving the look you desire so you can feel better about yourself.

CoolSculpting® Results: Weight Loss Vs. Fat Loss
CoolSculpting® works differently. It doesn’t shrink your fat cells. It irradiates them. With cool sculpting, you will actually decrease the number of fat cells in treated areas by roughly 20 to 25 percent! Cool sculpting does not help you lose weight. It does help you lose unwanted fat so your clothes fit more comfortably, you look slimmer, and you can feel better about your appearance.
CoolSculpting® Side Effects
As with any procedure, you may experience some side effects. During your treatment, you may experience mild pulling, tugging, pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, cramping or aching. This typically subsides as the area becomes numb from the cold. You may also experience some side effects following the procedure such as temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness. You may even experience some cramping, itching, or skin sensitivity. With treatments near the neck and chin, you may also experience a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat. The good news is these effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days or weeks. Learn more about what to expect from your CoolSculpting® experience.

Once the treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment but you will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment.
