You may have heard about some new options to help remove fat that don’t involve surgery. One option is CoolSculpting®, which is the only FDA-cleared procedure that uses non-invasive technology to destroy stubborn fat cells by freezing them. But it may sound too good to be true, right? Not at all. Does CoolSculpting really work? Yes! Here are three things to know about CoolSculpting that show it’s the real deal:

1. It’s the #1 Non-surgical Fat Reduction Treatment Doctors Use

Your Vitalogy Skincare Providers are dedicated to helping you love life in your skin, so results are important. The fact that it’s FDA-cleared and reduces 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area is huge. (You may need more than one treatment to reach your desired results.) It used to be you had to have surgery to remove fat. However, now there are more options with less downtime.

2. CoolSculpting Keeps Getting Awards and Accolades From Respected Sources

Major publications and networks have featured CoolSculpting including Women’s Health, Allure, Shape Magazine, GQ, E! News, Vanity Fair,, and more. Also, CoolSculpting was chosen in 2019 by the editors of New Beauty Magazine as the “Best Noninvasive Fat Eliminator” in their 2019 Best of Awards, making it a winner six times over.

3. People Can’t Say Enough Great Things About Their CoolSculpting Results

Many people have areas where they can’t seem to get rid of that extra belly fat or that leave  them feeling self-conscious, especially as they age. 

More Americans are turning to non-invasive options when it comes to fat reduction: The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that in 2018 there was a 6% increase in the treatments over 2017 (and in 2017 it grew 7% over the previous year). One CoolSculpting patient, Andrea, shares, “It just seemed too good to be true.” 

But she turned from a skeptic to a believer after she had only one treatment, sharing, “Yay, my body’s changing. I can see it. I can feel it.” After the second treatment, Andrea said, “It was so exciting to see the change in the pictures.” Because, often in our hectic day-to-day hustle it can be hard to notice the difference (until you notice your clothes are a little looser). 

Andrea also shares that before her mindset was, “When would I ever wear a bikini?” Now, she says, “I want to lay in a swimsuit and enjoy the results that have come from this treatment.”
