THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOSING WEIGHT VS LOSING FAT
It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat CELLS.
Fat Cells After The CoolSculpting Procedure
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.*

Fat Cells After Typical Weight Loss
After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same.
When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger.
How Your Body Processes Fat From Food
The fat you eat in food…
…travels through your digestive system…
…and then to the liver. Processed fat is the energy source for your body. Excess fat is stored in fat cells.
How Your Body Processes Fat Cells After CoolSculpting Treatment
Your body has a fixed number of fat cells that get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight.
When you have the CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells freeze and start to die off.
During the process of cell death, fat cells begin to collapse.
Over the weeks following your procedure, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.
The Fat Cells Are Gone
The CoolSculpting procedure will NOT help you lose weight. However, if you want to lose unwanted fat and look slimmer in your clothes, then CoolSculpting may be right for you.
