CoolSculpting: A Powerful Treatment to Reveal Your Best Shape

The rising popularity of CoolSculpting should come as no surprise. This FDA-approved treatment offers a non-surgical, non-invasive fat removal solution like never before. In addition, CoolSculpting therapies allow patients to finally target the areas where fat accumulates in the body, delivering results that even diet and exercise can’t. 

The expert team at Spa Black Med Spa in San Antonio, TX, will work with you to discuss the pros and cons of CoolSculpting to determine whether it’s the proper treatment for you.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only non-surgical, non-invasive fat removal treatment FDA approved to eliminate trouble spots. CoolSculpting works through cryolipolysis, which freezes fat cells that reside in the body. 

Cold temperatures affect fat cells differently than other cells. While skin and underlying tissue emerge from cold temperatures undamaged, fat cells are broken down and eventually eliminated from the body. 

Body Sculpting Through Cryolipolysis

Unfortunately, the body can’t target fat loss. A healthy diet and exercise will result in overall fat loss, but the body can’t reduce fat in a specific area. However, CoolSculpting’s technology does offer spot reduction. 

CoolSculpting only eliminates the fat in the treatment area. Body sculpting through cryolipolysis can finally deliver your ideal shape if you’re struggling with areas where fat accumulates. 

Why Is CoolSculpting So Popular?

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular treatments for eliminating fat and improving the shape of your body. Plastic surgeons and spa technicians frequently recommend CoolSculpting to patients and clients who wish to target fat loss without surgery. 

CoolSculpting is backed by FDA approval and years of clinical research and results. CoolSculpting offers:

  • No needles
  • No incisions
  • No anesthesia
  • No scarring
  • No downtime
  • No hot lasers

Unlike other fat loss procedures, CoolSculpting is truly a non-invasive fat removal treatment.

What to Expect from a CoolSculpting Treatment

To begin, you’ll meet with one of Spa Black’s expert CoolSculpting Technicians. Next, we’ll discuss your problem areas and your body sculpting goals. Then, when it’s time for your treatment, we’ll attach special applicators to the treatment area. 

The applicators create a vacuum effect, drawing the fat up to cool the fat without damaging any surrounding tissue. Do not move the applicator until the treatment is complete. 

In the meantime, you can read, watch TV, or even sleep while the activators destroy your fat cells. The entire treatment time takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the targeted area. 

After Your CoolSculpting Treatment

After your CoolSculpting treatment, you can return to your everyday routine. There is virtually no downtime, and you can return to work, the gym, or any other activities immediately. 

When Will I See Results?

CoolSculpting immediately gets to work freezing and killing fat cells. The body eliminates the frozen and broken down cells within four to six months. 

Some patients need only one appointment to achieve their desired results, while others may choose to have follow-up treatments or target other areas. Follow-up treatments can begin a month after your initial treatment. 

Your CoolSculpting technician can work with you to find the ideal timeline for your treatments if you’re body sculpting for a specific event. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight reduction procedure. Patients with more extensive weight loss goals may benefit from a different approach. The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is fit and active, with stubborn fat pockets that seem immune to diet and exercise. 

The fat cells removed by CoolSculpting are gone forever, but the body can still generate new fat cells in different areas. Again, patients who maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine see the best results.

While CoolSculpting can’t build muscle tone, it can eliminate the layer of fat that hides your muscle tone. After treatment, patients report a renewed motivation at the gym, as they can finally reveal the figure they’ve worked for. 

Treatment Areas

The non-invasive fat removal applicators used in CoolSculpting come in various sizes to target any area where stubborn pockets of fat accumulate. Here are the most common target areas: 

The Neck and Chin

Even patients at their ideal weight may still suffer from a double chin or fat deposits in the chin. Video calls and selfies only make the problem worse. However, a small applicator under the chin can target those stubborn fat deposits and finally eliminate the double chin within weeks.

Love Handles

Fat deposits on the sides of the abdomen always seem to be the last to go. If you feel fat in this area is negatively impacting the overall shape of your torso, CoolSculpting treatment can help.

Knee Fat

Another area where fat deposits seem to sit regardless of your diet and exercise routine is the knees. Some people hesitate to wear shorts because they dislike this area of their bodies. Target fat cells that sit above your knees with CoolSculpting, and eliminate these deposits for good.


Age and genetics can form lumps in the thighs where fat is stored. CoolSculpting allows precise fat targeting, smoothing, and eliminating fat storage. 


All of the sit-ups in the world can’t deliver six-pack abs when they’re hiding under a stubborn layer of fat. Finally, reveal your hard work by breaking down the abdominal fat layer that’s hiding it away.

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?

While the most significant benefit of CoolSculpting is fat loss, there are many reasons to choose CoolSculpting over other treatment options for targeted weight loss, including:

  • Short treatments
  • Little to no pain
  • No side effects
  • Permanent results
  • FDA approved procedure
  • Convenient, outpatient treatments
  • Safe to use anywhere on the body

CoolSculpting is the first treatment of its kind to offer targeted fat loss, letting patients fully realize the benefits of their diet and exercise routine.
