CoolSculpting – FAQ

CoolSculpting FAQs

WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body, shaping up the areas you can’t conquer with diet and exercise alone. This treatment requires no needles, no surgery, and most importantly, no downtime. It is safe, FDA-cleared, effective and produces undeniable results.

IS COOLSCULPTING RIGHT FOR ME?”

CoolSculpting may be the ideal treatment option for you, if you want:

  • To reduce areas of stubborn fat
  • To contour, shape and slim your body
  • Body contouring without surgery and downtime

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A team of renowned Harvard scientists developed the FDA-cleared CoolSculpting procedure which utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target fat, freeze fat, and permanently eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue. After a one-to-three hour CoolSculpting procedure, the patient’s body goes to work. Over the next two to three months your body’s natural mechanisms will eliminate those cells, thinning out your fat layer and trimming inches off your body.

WHERE ON THE BODY CAN COOLSCULPTING BE USED?

CoolSculpting can be used on the chin, flanks (hips), abdomen, thighs, and back.

WHAT IS A COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT LIKE?

During the CoolSculpting procedure, a gel pad is placed on the skin prior to the placement of the applicator. The CoolSculpting applicator is then placed over the treatment area. Due to the vacuum assisted applicator, patients may initially feel a pulling, tugging or pinching sensation. Next, the cooling component is activated. You may experience tingling, stinging, aching or cramping; however, these sensations generally subside in the first few minutes of treatment, as the area becomes numb. A typical treatment will last between one and three hours. During this time, patients typically work on their laptop, listen to music, read a book or magazine, or just relax during the treatment.

HOW MANY OFFICE VISITS ARE REQUIRED?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after each treatment, but you will experience the most dramatic results in two to four months. Your body will continue to naturally process the injured fat cells from your body for approximately four to six months after each procedure. During each treatment, the fat layer is typically reduced by about 20% to 25%. Additional treatment sessions are recommended to increase reduction in fat.
