CoolSculpting FAQs

CoolSculpting FAQs

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting can be used nearly anywhere on the body where excess fat is detracting from ideal contours. This includes:
• Outer and inner Thighs
• Hips and abdomen
• Waist and back
• Chest and arms
• Under the chin

What is CoolSculpting Treatment Like?

During CoolSculpting treatment, a gentle vacuum is used to draw the fold of fatty tissue in between two cooling panels. Once secured, precisely measured levels of cold energy are directed into the cells, causing them to freeze. Known as cryolipolysis, this causes apoptosis (cell death) and allows for the fat to gradually be eliminated from the body.  The treatment itself is quite easy – many people read, work on their laptops, or chat on the phone during a treatment!

Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

The efficacy of CoolSculpting is well documented. Several scientific studies have shown an average reduction of 20% in overall fat in the application area following just one treatment. Additional CoolSculpting treatments may be needed for larger areas.

How Long Before I Can See CoolSculpting Results?

Initial results should be visible within three to four weeks. However, because CoolSculpting relies on the body to eliminate the fat cells, it may take up to six months for full results to be realized.

What is CoolSculpting Recovery Like?

CoolSculpting is non-surgical and minimally invasive, so most patients are able to return to work and resume their regular activities immediately. Some numbness and redness may be present for seven to ten days, but the discomfort should not be expected.

Am I a Good CoolSculpting Candidate?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting are men and women who are dissatisfied with how their bodies have responded to diet and exercise. If you have stubborn fat deposits and are close to your goal BMI, you may be the ideal candidate for this procedure. During your initial consultation, we will carefully assess your candidacy for CoolSculpting and discuss any other options that may help you reach your goals.
