CoolSculpting Q & A

Medical Aesthetics

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary method of eliminating fat using the power of controlled cooling. With CoolSculpting, your physician uses a specialized device to freeze fat cells underneath the skin, which inhibits their ability to survive and store fat.

After the procedure, these fat cells gradually die off, your body naturally eliminates them, and you have a slimmer, more contoured appearance.

How does CoolSculpting work?

Before your CoolSculpting procedure, you meet with your esthetician for a consultation. During this appointment, you’ll discuss your treatment goals, and together you’ll come up with an approach that helps reshape your body and eliminate fat in your problem areas.

During your CoolSculpting session, your esthetician applies the CoolSculpting applicator to the targeted treatment area. Vacuum applicators gently draw the tissue into a cup while delivering controlled cooling to the targeted fat.

As the name suggests, you may feel a cool sensation during the procedure, as well as a gentle tugging or pulling on the skin.

Since the procedure is nonsurgical, you can return to your normal activities immediately after a CoolSculpting session.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting are individuals who want to get rid of stubborn fat. The procedure is especially helpful if you have fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, under the arms, the thighs, or buttocks.

CoolSculpting is not a replacement for weight loss, so the best candidates for the procedure are people who have a mild to moderate amount of excess fat but are within about 30 pounds of their target weight.

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?

After a CoolSculpting procedure, you may start to see results within as little as three weeks. Your results continue developing, and you’ll see significant results after about two months. What’s even more exciting, your body continues to eliminate fat cells up to six months after your treatment.

CoolSculpting offers a noninvasive way to get rid of stubborn fat in areas that don’t respond to exercise or dietary changes. It’s also a fast procedure: The average appointment only takes about 30-60 minutes.

When you combine CoolSculpting with the right diet and exercise program, you’ll see dramatic results in just a few short weeks.
