Does CoolSlimming Work?

CoolSlimming, first approved by the FDA in 2010, drew attention when it was rebranded from a mild topical treatment to a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, promising to remove love handles and side nipples with waves of cooling paddles. More recently, non-surgical fat-loss tools have been cleared to address loose skin under the chin, a smaller area that is more difficult to alter through natural means such as diet and exercise. Sound too good to be true? According to Roostaeian and Manhattan-based CoolSlimming guru Jeannel Astarita, the technique works. Here, they discuss the ins and outs of fat freezing, from weight loss to health risks.


How does it work?

The CoolSlimming program uses round paddles in one of four sizes to suck up your skin and fat like a vacuum cleaner. When you sit on a recliner for up to two hours, the cooling plate kicks in, crystallizing your fat cells. It’s a mild discomfort that people seem to tolerate just fine, and you experience suction and cooling, and eventually numbness. In fact, programming is so easy that patients can bring their laptop to work, watch a movie, or nap while the machine goes to work.


Who is it for?

CoolSlimming is designed for people looking for minor improvements, it is not designed for one-stop major fat removal like liposuction. When clients come for a consultation, we consider “their age, skin quality – will it bounce back? Will it look good after the volume is removed? And how thick or compressible their tissue is, before approving them for treatment? Before, because the suction panel can only handle the tissue it can reach. If someone’s tissue is thick and hard, we won’t be able to surprise them.


What’s the result?

Often several treatments are required for optimal results, and a single treatment can produce very small changes that are sometimes undetectable by the client. However, all hope is not lost, and the more treatment you receive, the more results you will see. What will eventually happen is a fat loss of up to 25% in the treated area. “At best you’ll get a slight fat loss — a slight improvement in your waistline, a reduction in bulging in any given area.


Will it make you lose weight?

None of these devices shed pounds, reminding potential patients that muscle weighs more than fat. When you lose 25% fat in a small amount of tissue, it doesn’t add up too much on the scales, but it matters when you’re losing spills on your pants or bra.


Is it permanent?

Yes, it’s a permanent fat loss technique, but only if you control your weight. If you gain weight, it’s going somewhere, and changing your behavior through nutrition and exercise can also lead to lasting improvements in your body. Here’s one thing for you: If you’re going through 14 cycles and don’t change your diet and eating habits at all, your body isn’t changing at all.


When should you start?

Schedule your meetings three months in advance, up to six. Results were not visible for at least four weeks, with fat loss peaking around eight. After twelve weeks, your skin will be smoother and look better, and results after one treatment are almost always insufficient. There is downtime for each treatment, so you need at least six to eight weeks between appointments.


Is it safe?

Because this is a non-invasive procedure, the risks are relatively low. Irregular contours can occur in the same way as liposuction. While the CoolSlimming machine leaves less room for human error when it comes to removing fat, it also has its limitations when it comes to fine-tuning removal, just as a clever plastic surgeon might do with their hands. So one potential complication is that your numb nerves feel as if they’ve been asleep for weeks or even months — this can happen, with no wound, and little swelling. Further risks should be discussed with your doctor.
