So, you’ve been eating healthy and exercising consistently.  But you’re still frustrated by certain areas of your body that simply won’t budge.  Understandable; we all have those problem areas!  Even when we follow healthy lifestyle habits, there are simply parts of the body that are non-responsive to eating well and targeted exercises.  And, we get it – you want to look your best so you FEEL your best.  If you’ve been researching safe, non-invasive options to target your problem areas, no doubt you’ve heard about CoolSculpting!  

Millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been performed around the world, and Bodify is Arizona’s number one CoolSculpting provider!  It’s our passion and it’s all we do, so we know it’s safe and we get to see first-hand why people love it!  But, did you know CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that uses fat-freezing technology to eliminate stubborn fat?  But even more so than that – CoolSculpting technology can actually boast of NINE clearances from the FDA so almost any body part can be treated!

First, What is CoolSculpting?

CoolScultping is an amazing non-invasive option that basically freezes the fat away from the areas you target.  Its technical name is Cryolipolysis, which we know is a mouthful, so let us break it down:  cryo = icy cold and lipolysis = chemical decomposition of fat.  So, that’s a science-y way of saying “fat freezing!”  Fat cells don’t like the cold and will freeze at a certain temperature.  By using controlled application of CoolSculpting equipment, fat cells are frozen and then those dead, crystallized cells are naturally eliminated by your body in 1-4 months, resulting in a 20-% of fat reduction in the targeted area.

It’s important to note that while CoolSculpting reduces stubborn fat, it is not a weight loss treatment.  The treatments work best for patients who are 5-40 pounds from a healthy and ideal weight for their height.  And hopefully this goes without saying, but please don’t think you can just dunk your body in ice to reduce fat!  Fat freezing requires a precise, controlled cooling temperature that only a CoolSculpting machine and experienced provider can administer!  

Nine FDA-Clearances Mean Almost Any Body Part Can be Treated!

CoolSculpting was first developed by a team of scientists and physicians from Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital.  Interestingly enough, the team noticed that children who frequently enjoyed popsicles were more likely to develop dimples, and discovered that the frozen popsicles caused an inflammation of the fat cells in the children’s mouths, ultimately leading to a loss of the fat cells.  The team went to work conducting successful clinical studies, at first targeting love handles (or “the flank”), and earned CoolSculpting’s first FDA-clearance in 2010.

Soon after, CoolSculpting gained FDA-clearance for the stomach in 2012.  Since then, the CoolSculpting procedure has earned seven additional FDA-clearances, totaling nine!  This means that CoolSculpting can target nearly any part of the body where you have stubborn fat!  Our controlled applicators can be used to reduce visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thighs, abdomen and flank (those pesky love handles!), along with reduction in bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arms.

According to Dr. David Nicholson, Executive Vice President and Chief Research and Development Officer at Allergan, “The CoolSculpting® treatment is the clinically proven safe and effective, leader in nonsurgical fat reduction with 9 clearances and over 9 million treatments performed.”
