CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an innovative procedure that allows your provider to successfully freeze and eliminate stubborn fat without the need for surgery. CoolSculpting helps you get rid of excess fat you can’t eliminate through diet and exercise.

The CoolSculpting system uses precisely controlled cooling technology that targets and freezes fat cells underneath your skin. The fat cells die off, and your body eliminates them naturally over time through the normal waste process.

As the system destroys fat cells for good, your body gradually becomes more sculpted in appearance, giving you long-lasting results.

What can I expect during the CoolSculpting process?

During the painless procedure, you wear a specialized pad that delivers the cold therapy that freezes fat cells in the treatment area. Typical treatment times vary from one to several hours, depending on the size and location of the treatment area. The procedure is noninvasive and doesn’t require any medication or anesthesia.

Your provider monitors you throughout treatment to ensure your safety and comfort. You can relax, read a book, or watch a movie during treatment.

Does CoolSculpting have any side effects?

Following the completion of your treatment, you can resume your normal activities without limitations. You may experience redness or slight bruising in the treatment area that resolves on its own in five to seven days. You may also have some soreness or itching.

It can take up to four months to see optimum results as your body continues to shed fat cells and improve the appearance of your overall figure.

Do I need more than one treatment?

The treatment permanently destroys fat cells with long-lasting results. With proper diet and regular exercise, you can maintain your results for years.

Your provider creates a custom treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results. Depending on the size of the treatment area, you may need more than one treatment to get optimal results.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting may be right for you if you’re in good health and physically fit, but can’t seem to eliminate stubborn fat through diet and exercise alone.

This treatment is not effective in treating obesity, and may not provide the same drastic results as liposuction surgery.
