What is CoolSculpting?

The alternative to liposuction surgery, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that reduces stubborn fat within the body by freezing the fat below the skin’s surface. The FDA approved treatment for non-invasive fat reduction has been offered at Reviv Med Spa for years due to its effectiveness as a substitute for the riskier alternative: LipoSuction.

The CoolSculpting process begins by cooling and freezing the fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, eliminating the fat cells. The body then naturally processes the cells over the following few weeks and eliminates them, reducing the number of fat cells within the treated areas by about 20% to 25%. In addition, Reviv Med Spa offers even shorter treatments with dualsculpting, allowing treatment to occur in two places at the same time.


Why are more patients gravitating towards CoolSculpting instead of LipoSuction?

Here are their top 5 reasons:

1. Non-Invasive Procedure

As a result of the CoolSculpting procedure’s non-invasive method, it is far less risky than LipoSuction. By choosing CoolSculpting over surgery, patients are able to undergo a procedure that will help them feel better about themselves without the worries of anesthesia side effects such as blood clots, negative reactions, or other serious complications.

2. Convenient and Familiar

Since coolsculpting is non-invasive, the procedure is much easier to perform and can be performed outside of a hospital, making it much easier to schedule an appointment with a friendly medical professional and team of your choice in a clinic that you’re familiar with. In addition, by avoiding surgery, you won’t have to take time off of your daily life and responsibilities in order to feel good about yourself!

3. Faster Results

Unlike LipoSuction patients, CoolSculpting patients are typically able to notice significant results within a few weeks. With LipoSuction, most patients don’t notice dramatic results until a few months after the surgery.

4. Shorter Sessions

While LipoSuction typically only takes one session to achieve the desired result, CoolSculpting is completed as a set of short outpatient procedures that are a few weeks apart, each one only taking less than an hour.

5. Very Effective

According to Healthline, CoolSculpting can eliminate up to 25% of the fat cells in any given part of a person’s body. The fat cells in the targeted area are permanently removed during the procedure. Between CoolSculpting and LipoSuction, both procedures have a very similar degree of efficacy, but with very different levels of risk associated with the procedures. Similarly, the cost of the CoolSculpting procedure is usually less than liposuction because there is no anesthesia or hospital fees. Both procedures can deliver similar results with, again, vastly differently risks.
