When it comes to aesthetics, we all have different body goals in mind. Having a flat stomach is one of the main desires of both men and women. Unfortunately, some areas can prove to be more stubborn like love handles!
For those who are looking for an effective non-invasive solution to remove the extra layer of fat from our waistline, Coolsculpting is a great option. It promises to deliver painless and effortless results if done properly — but does it work best on love handles?
Coolsculpting, or cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive procedure meant as a fat reduction treatment that can help target fat around the love handles. It has been around for over 10 years now and people have had successful experiences with it — especially with love handles. In this article, I’ll discuss how Coolsculpting works and its efficacy for removing fat from the sides of your waistline.

The short answer is yes, Coolsculpting works very well on love handles! This non-surgical fat reduction treatment reduces stubborn fat in hard-to-treat areas including the stomach, hips, and love handles. Thanks to the revolutionary technology of freezing fat cells without harming surrounding tissue, you can get rid of that troublesome area without undergoing surgery.
So how does it work? During a Coolsculpting session, a healthcare professional will place an applicator over your love handles and freeze away any unwanted fat in extremely cold temperatures. Within a few weeks from your initial appointment, you should start noticing visible results as the dead fat cells are expelled from the body by natural processes.
Coolsculpting is perfect for those who want to reduce their love handles but don’t want to go through the hassle of surgery or downtime associated with it. As long as you’re not looking to lose tons of weight, Coolsculpting could be just what you need to get rid of stubborn fat for good!
CoolSculpting treatment is quick and easy. Depending on the area you are targeting, it usually takes about 35 to 75 minutes for an individual session. If you’re treating multiple body parts, your appointment may last up to 90 minutes in total.
If you have a lot of fat deposits in the area that you want to remove, then the process can take longer. Generally, plan for about 45 minutes for each region that you are targeting with CoolSculpting. During this time, your technician will apply a protective gel pad to the skin and place the applicator cup over it. Your technician will then set the machine temperature and begin performing suction-assisted cooling on your target area. You may feel moments of slight discomfort during this period as your skin is cooled by the large suction cup attached to the machine. At the end of your procedure, your technician will massage any remaining fatty tissue with a clinical-grade massage wand or roller ball before removing the device from your skin completely and declaring you free!
Coolsculpting is a great way to eliminate stubborn, localized pockets of fat. Before embarking on Coolsculpting treatment, however, it’s important to ensure you are an ideal candidate for this procedure.
An ideal candidate for Coolsculpting love handle treatment is someone who has already achieved some success with diet and exercise but still has problem areas that just won’t go away. The perfect person for Coolsculpting would have realistic expectations in terms of results from this procedure and be willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle even after the treatment. Men and women in good health with generally healthy BMI (Body Mass Index) and strong bones and muscles can get great results from Coolsculpting love handle treatments. Patients should also be aware that multiple treatments may be needed in order to achieve desired outcomes.
The side effects of CoolSculpting, while mostly mild and temporary, do exist. These include minor pain or numbness at the site of treatment, redness, and swelling, itching at the site of treatment, and bruising or tenderness at the treated area. Most people find that these side effects resolve within days to weeks after their treatment session is complete. It is always best to talk with your doctor before beginning any type of cosmetic procedure so you are aware of all potential risks.
