CoolSculpting Q & A

How does the CoolSculpting procedure work?

We perform CoolSculpting procedures on patients with areas of stubborn fat that’s resistant to traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise. Typically, the fat-freezing procedure targets the following treatment areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Under the chin

During treatment, we use a gel pad and an applicator to safely deliver precisely-controlled cooling to carefully and effectively target fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells are frozen or crystallized, then over time, your body will naturally eliminate these damaged fat cells.

The results are long term because the fat cells your body naturally breaks down are gone for good, helping you sculpt the body you want. Untreated areas will have no change in the number of fat cells.

How long does treatment take?

We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. Most patients only require a single treatment day, but we can schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as soon as three weeks after your CoolSculpting treatment, but the most dramatic results are visible after three months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for four to six months after the fat-freezing treatment.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it’s proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction. Because the procedure is non-invasive, patients are able to resume normal activities directly after treatment, often returning to work right away.

There are some minor, temporary side effects associated with the treatment. During the procedure, you may feel slight pulling, tugging, pinching, aching, cramping, or intense cold at the treatment site. However, these sensations subside as the area gradually becomes numb.

After the procedure, possible side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, aching, cramping, itching, or skin sensitivity. These temporary side effects usually subside within days or weeks.
