With accolades including an overview and live demonstration on the The Dr. Oz Show, CoolSculpting evolves fat reduction to a noninvasive lunchtime treatment that purges pudge through cryolipolysis, a process that crystallizes fat cells by exposing localized areas of the body to 4 degrees Celsius. CoolSculpting machinery presses lingering muffin tops, love handles, or paunches between two cooling plates, then delivers a pop of intense cold. The process prompts apoptosis (programmed cell death) of adipocytes (subcutaneous fat cells), which the body naturally eliminates through macrophage within 90 days. Patients can play on their laptops or peruse the latest issue of Nuns' Life during the procedure, which typically takes one hour for each area treated and poses little to no downtime, with results visible in as soon as three weeks.
Because the process is a noninvasive treatment, no tissue damage or scar tissue results, no organs or body processes are adversely affected, and no antibiotics or pain medication are required. Skin is continually monitored, and machinery automatically shuts off if skin becomes too cold. Soft tissue may appear purplish-blue and swollen after treatment, which can dissipate within minutes; some patients may experience bruising, which will heal naturally. CoolSculpting reduces fat in treated areas by an average of 20–30 per cent. Weight can be kept off long-term by eating right, exercising regularly, and avoiding clown mirrors.
CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure performed by a technician and is not a weight-loss treatment or a treatment for obesity. Buyers should review candidacy requirements, which include being within 20 pounds of their ideal weight, before purchasing a Groupon. Buyers will receive a complimentary consultation from Plastic Surgery Associates' board-certified plastic surgeons to confirm their candidacy for CoolSculpting, which must be scheduled within 60 days of purchase date. Buyers who are not deemed to be candidates for the process should contact Groupon via phone or bat signal within 60 days for a refund.
