Achieving a slimmer figure without surgery, needles or anesthesia, and no downtime, is a game-changer in the world of body contouring. If you are interested in CoolSculpting, A common question we here is “Is CoolSculpting right for me?”, Keep reading to find out the answer.


What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting offers a revolutionary, non-surgical solution for reducing persistent fat in targeted areas. This innovative treatment utilizes controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate resistant fat cells, providing a permanent reduction in fat.

When diet and exercise fall short in addressing unwanted fat, CoolSculpting steps in as a unique contouring option, offering a slimmer figure without surgery, needles, or anesthesia. With no downtime, clients can enjoy the benefits of enhanced body contours. PURE Medical Spa stands out with top-tier CoolSculpting expertise, having completed advanced training at CoolSculpting University Masters, ensuring premier service and outcomes for clients in the Pacific Northwest.


How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Once the target areas are identified, a gel pad and applicator are placed on the skin surface.

The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat, bringing it to a temperature that induces a natural and controlled elimination of fat cells.

Cryolipolysis, or “cold-induced fat breakdown,” is the core mechanism of CoolSculpting. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold than surrounding tissues, so the controlled cooling process selectively targets and freezes fat cells without damaging the skin or other structures.

Over the following weeks after treatment, the crystallized fat cells undergo apoptosis, a natural cell death process. After apoptosis, the body’s natural metabolic processes gradually eliminate the dead fat cells. As the body begins to eliminate those fat cells, the treated area experiences a reduction in fat volume, leading to a more contoured and sculpted appearance.


Are You a CoolSculpting Candidate?

Before undergoing CoolSculpting, it’s important to understand if you are the right candidate for a CoolSculpting procedure. CoolSculpting is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and determining your candidacy involves considering various factors.

CoolSculpting operates by utilizing controlled cooling to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells that resist diet and exercise. This means candidates should have specific goals and areas of concern that align with the capabilities of CoolSculpting. Whether it’s love handles, abdominal fat, or pesky bulges, CoolSculpting can be remarkably effective in addressing localized fat deposits.

This procedure is most suitable for individuals who are close to their ideal weight but struggle with isolated pockets of fat. If you find that despite a healthy lifestyle, certain areas simply won’t budge, CoolSculpting might be the answer you’ve been seeking.

It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution for those aiming to shed significant pounds. Instead, it’s designed for body contouring and refining areas that may not respond to traditional weight loss methods.

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting have good skin elasticity, which allows the skin to adapt well to the changes in body contours after fat reduction. This helps ensure a smoother and more natural-looking result.

Good blood circulation is essential for the success of CoolSculpting. Individuals with circulatory disorders or conditions that may impair blood flow may not be suitable candidates.

During your consultation with PURE, we will assess your medical history, discuss your goal and evaluate the areas you wish to target. That will help you understand what to expect from the procedure and whether CoolSculpting is right for you.


How to Enhance Your CoolSculpting Results

To optimize and enhance your CoolSculpting results, consider the following tips:

  • Continue practicing a balanced diet and regular exercise routine to support overall wellness and maintain your results.
  • Adequate hydration is essential for your body’s natural processes, including the elimination of fat cells. Drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins.
  • Complement CoolSculpting with strength training exercises to build muscle tone. This can enhance the overall appearance of treated areas.
  • Explore complementary treatments that align with your aesthetic goals, such as laser therapy or skin-tightening procedures like Kybella and SkinTyte.
  • While CoolSculpting permanently reduces fat cells, weight fluctuations can impact the overall appearance. Aim to maintain a stable weight for long-lasting results.



How much weight can you lose with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment; it’s designed for targeted fat reduction. While individual results vary, it can typically remove 20-25% of fat in the treated area.

Does CoolSculpting leave loose skin?

CoolSculpting is primarily focused on eliminating fat, and it is not intended to address loose skin. If loose skin is a concern, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional to explore alternative treatments.

Can I lose 20 pounds with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is not meant for substantial weight loss. It is best suited for individuals close to their ideal weight with specific areas of stubborn fat. While it can help sculpt the body, losing 20 pounds would typically require a combination of healthy diet and exercise.
