Can CoolSculping Really Target Stubborn Fat?

If you have issues with stubborn body fat, you are not alone. There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours at the gym and making the effort to maintain a healthy diet, only to see no reduction of fat in your target areas. Diet and exercise are fundamental components of any beauty regimen, but they don’t offer you the precision control you need to sculpt your appearance. CoolSculpting treatments at Doctors MedSpa in Little Rock, AR can help you conquer your stubborn body fat and achieve the look you deserve.


CoolSculpting is a convenient, painless, and effective way to erase body fat and smooth out the line of your silhouette. Good health practices are important to reduce your overall fat percentage, but achieving your ideal look requires the ability to make some finishing touches. The right amount of fat distributed in the correct places actually enhances your appearance by filling out your curves.

There is nothing worse than making the sacrifices necessary to reduce your overall body fat percentage, only to have your body take the fat from the wrong parts of your body. CoolSculpting Little Rock is a form of body contouring that lets you target areas for fat removal.

You can think of it as a magic wand that erases fat from the places you don’t want it and which leaves the curves and lines that please you completely unaffected. Body contouring has quickly become one of the most popular beauty treatments available today.

How Does It Work?

The treatment takes advantage of inherent weaknesses in the biochemical structure of your fat cells. Your surrounding skin and muscle tissue are made up of water-based cells, while your fat cells are made of oil-based cells.

Oil-based cells are more vulnerable to prolonged exposure to cold temperatures. This means that by exposing a targeted area of your body to cool temperature for a prolonged period of time, we can provoke cell death in subcutaneous fat cells without causing any discomfort to the surrounding tissue.

After the fat cells are killed, they are removed from your body as waste through natural processes. The whole treatment is entirely painless with almost no restrictions on your daily activities. You can come in for a session during your lunch break and return to work with no one knowing you’ve just taken an action that will dramatically enhance your appearance.

What Is the Session Like?

When you come in for your session, we recommend that you wear non-restrictive, loose-fitting clothing as you’d wear on a day off. If you’re coming from work, it’s a good idea to bring a change of clothing so you don’t get any protective gel on your office attire. You will make yourself comfortable, surrounded by pillows as we attach the applicators. You can watch television, read, or operate a mobile device to stay entertained during your session.

The applicators are the medical-grade devices that allow the treatment. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be affixed to virtually any part of the body. The applicators consist of a vacuum component that helps bring the subcutaneous fat to the surface and a cooling element. Sessions typically last between forty-five minutes and an hour.

Is It Painless?

Yes, the treatment is so comfortable that many of our patients take advantage of their appointment and take a nap. There is an initial shock of cold at the beginning, but your body quickly adapts as you achieve equilibrium. The experience is similar to how you feel when you first step out of a ski chalet on a cold morning. At first brush, it feels cold, but your body quickly gets used to the new environment and you can stay outside all day.

Can It Really Target Fat?

The use of applicators allows unprecedented control for non-surgical fat reduction. Popular treatment areas include the abdomen, thighs, back, arms, and even the neck and chin. We have a wide variety of applicators designed to fit every part of the body. Rest assured that you are not the only person who has a stubborn fat pocket that interrupts your aesthetic. Many people resign themselves to living with body features that displease them, but with this treatment, you can finally experience a healthy and positive body image.

After a session, you will start to see results in around three weeks, with peak results coming in around two to three months. If you have an important calendar date approaching like a wedding or a graduation, we can create a treatment schedule that will ensure you look your absolute best on your special day.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

It is important to go into any beauty treatment with proper expectations. Body contouring is not an effective treatment for obesity. It works best for fit, active, and healthy individuals who are within around thirty pounds of their ideal weight. The treatment is designed as a finishing touch that assists you in traversing the final stage of your journey to beauty and wellness.
