Is Coolsculpting Permanent?

If you are looking for a way to reduce fat without surgery, needles or downtime, then coolsculpting is your answer!  It is estimated that 4 million people have undergone this procedure. This procedure involves using controlled cooling in order to eliminate fat forever. The fat cells in the target area will be frozen. The frozen cells shrink and die. Over time the dead fat cells are naturally eliminated as waste.

This Procedure can be used on the stomach, hips, back and just about any area that has excess fat. It is important to note that this is not a weight loss procedure. Losing weight does not cause fat cells to go away. This treatment gets rid of fat cells.
