There are many reasons why someone may not be able to lose weight. Depending on your body type, your hormones, your metabolism, and other factors, your diet and exercise routines may not be enough to lose those last few pounds. Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure that allows you to get rid of unwanted fat and lets you close the gap between you and the body you want. But how does Coolsculpting work? And what makes it work when diet and exercise don’t?

Regardless of a person’s appearance, everyone has fat cells in their body. The only difference from person to person is how much fat is stored inside them. When you diet or exercise, you burn the fat inside the cells, making them smaller, and allowing your muscles to show through. However, this is by no means permanent, since it’s possible for the fat cells to fill up once again.

Coolsculpting, on the other hand, works by removing the fat cells altogether. It works by targeting the unwanted fat cells and freezing them. The temperature is low enough to destroy the fat cells but high enough that it causes no damage to the surrounding tissues and muscles. After the fat cells are naturally expelled from the body, they’re gone for good.

While it’s still possible to gain weight by storing it in the remaining fat cells, as well as the fat cells in other areas of the body, the fat cells Coolsculpting removes are gone forever, meaning the results from the treatment are permanent. This will forever make it easier for you to avoid gaining weight in the treated area or areas.
