Can CoolSculpting® Get Rid Of Cellulite?

Here is a more in-depth look at CoolSculpting® from Dr. Ryan Krch N.M.D. of Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE in Phoenix, AZ. Learn how this modern technology has been the cosmetic answer for individuals wanting a more fit, toned-looking body by reducing fat in certain areas, even if cellulite isn't the primary target.

The evolution of CoolSculpting®

Years ago, two scientists discovered when children ate popsicles, small pockets of fat cells inside their cheeks were eliminated due to the cooling effect — hence, the discovery of cryolipolysis and science behind CoolSculpting®. The patented CoolSculpting® device delivers a controlled cooling substance that destroys targeted fat cells while leaving surrounding cells and tissues unharmed. Those frozen fat cells then break down, liquefy, and are naturally eliminated by the body in about 6 – 12 weeks. Common target areas for CoolSculpting® are:

  • Abdomen
  • Underneath the buttocks ("banana roll")
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Chin
  • Upper arms
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Knees
  • Back

How long do CoolSculpting® results last?

CoolSculpting® has become a leading competitor in body contouring options, but without the downside of an invasive procedure. CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that freezes away stubborn fat without requiring any downtime. It can be done over a lunch hour, and the biggest perk is the results are permanent. Once the targeted fat cells are treated and dead, they don't return. When ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® maintain their current weight, they can enjoy their fantastic results for years. CoolSculpting® has become one of the most successful and popular noninvasive techniques for body sculpting and fat reducing help in the past decade. However, one of the first questions still asked is, "Can CoolSculpting® get rid of cellulite?"

What causes cellulite?

CoolSculpting® was developed to reduce and eliminate fat cells beneath the skin but unfortunately can't treat the skin's surface where cellulite is the issue. When subcutaneous fat accumulates between the fibrous connective tissues underneath the skin, it causes an uneven surface or dimpling. Women are genetically predisposed to more subcutaneous fat, which is the main culprit of cellulite. Other factors that can impact the appearance of cellulite are:

  • Aging skin
  • Excess fatty tissue
  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Dehydrated skin

Does CoolSculpting® get rid of cellulite?

Cryolipolysis is a freezing effect that patients are loving the fat-reducing results of, commonly known as CoolSculpting®. The CoolSculpting® technology primarily targets excess fat cells, yet can't guarantee a change in cellulite on common areas like the thighs or stomach. However, by reducing excess fat located beneath the skin, many patients do experience a tighter, smoother, more sculpted appearance in those troublesome spots. If there is less fat, that generally means people look better, thus making cellulite less noticeable. Most patients, no matter what, are usually in awe at how easy CoolSculpting® treatments are and how quickly they start seeing amazing results.

CoolSculpting® is a fantastic solution that provides a low-risk fat reducing option for healthy, fit individuals needing a little body contouring help. Depending on each patient's aesthetic goals, some men and women see improvement with only one CoolSculpting® treatment, while others may require more sessions for optimal results. Dr. Krch and his experienced staff at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE are excited to offer this latest and greatest body sculpting technology to their patients in the Phoenix area.

If you have put in the hard work at the gym and been dedicated to a healthy diet but still aren't able to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat, then let CoolSculpting® treatments be the noninvasive body contouring solution to take your body to the next level.
