Coolsculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, nonsurgical fat-reduction treatment that uses a controlled cooling system to permanently eliminate fat in problem areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

The cooling energy targets fat cells beneath the surface of your skin and freezes them. Over time, your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells on its own. Once those extra fat cells are gone, you see the results of a more defined, sculpted appearance.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates fat from several areas of your body, including:

  • Thighs
  • Belly, love handles, and sides
  • Back fat
  • Beneath the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Double chins

These areas don’t always respond to your diet and exercise efforts but do respond to the freezing technology of CoolSculpting, so you get visible and permanent results. Once your body eliminates the fat cells, they’re gone for good; they don’t grow back.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Anyone who wants permanent fat-reduction in problem areas may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting.

While it’s not a weight-loss solution for obesity, it’s a great alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction. The best CoolSculpting candidates are men and women who are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight but have areas of excess fat they’d like to reshape.

How many treatments will I need?

It depends on the number of areas you’re having treated; you may need more than one CoolSculpting session to achieve your desired results.

Each treatment session lasts between 35-60 minutes and doesn’t require downtime. You can resume your daily activities right after a CoolSculpting treatment.

What can I expect during a CoolSculpting treatment?

During your CoolSculpting treatment, you sit comfortably as the gel pad and applicator target fat in a specific area. You may feel pulling, tugging, or pinching sensations in the treatment area as the applicator delivers controlled, cold temperatures below the surface of your skin to freeze fat cells. Once the area becomes numb, most of these sensations subside.

Most men and women find the treatment easy to tolerate, as any uncomfortable sensations subside quickly. You can even read or take a nap during the treatment.
