Can Ice Packs Reduce Belly Fat?

Ice pack Excess body fat is a common concern that stands between many people and their ideal figures. Few things are more frustrating than working hard in the kitchen and gym only to find that your stubborn belly fat remains. It can leave you feeling desperate for a solution that will finally produce results.

Fat freezing is an approach that is becoming more and more popular. It works because of one basic principle: fat cells die when they get too cold. This process is known as cryolipolysis, which means cold (cryo) fat (lipo) destruction (lysis). It’s the same principle that makes the non-invasive fat removal treatment CoolSculpting so effective.

CoolSculpting® is not covered by insurance and may not be accessible to everyone. Because of that, some people have tried to recreate the treatment at home with ice or other frozen materials. It’s important to know that strapping an ice pack to your stomach — or any other area, for that matter — won’t provide safe and effective fat removal.

Applying ice to your skin for an extended period can cause:

  • Frostbite
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Permanent tissue damage

For these reasons, attempting to reduce fat at home with ice packs is not recommended. CoolSculpting® works because of a treatment applicator that suctions the skin, unique cooling technology, and built-in safety features.

CoolSculpting® has been cleared by the FDA to treat nine different areas of the body. Clinical trials have shown it to be a safe and effective option for fat removal.
