Does Freezing Fat Work for Everyone?

We are often asked does fat freeze work for everyone. Fat freezing is a treatment that works best on individuals that are close to their ideal body mass index (BMI) with pinchable fat located on stubborn areas, such as the chin, abdomen, or thighs. 

Fat freezing may not be a suitable treatment for people with obesity. Individuals with a BMI of 30 and over may have too much excess fat for the fat-freezing treatment to target effectively. It’s important to consult with a trained professional to determine if fat freezing is a suitable option for individuals with obesity. 

How Does Coolsculpting Work?

CoolSculpting fat freezing works by using the principle of Cryolipolysis, which is controlled cooling to target and destroy fat cells in the treated area. 

Compared to other cells in the body, fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures. This is because fat cells have a higher water content and a lower freezing point, which makes them more susceptible to damage from cold temperatures. 

When the targeted fat is exposed to controlled cooling, typically between -11 and -5 degrees Celsius, the fat cells are subjected to apoptosis. During apoptosis, a cell undergoes a series of changes that ultimately result in its self-destruction. This causes the fat cells to die. 

Importantly, other cells and tissues in the body remain unharmed during the process. This is because the cooling process is precisely controlled and targets only the fat cells while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. 

Once the fat cells have been destroyed, the body naturally eliminates them through its lymphatic system. This process can take several weeks to several months, depending on the individual and the treated area. As the dead fat cells are eliminated, the treated area will become slimmer.
