What should I expect with CoolSculpting treatment?

The treatment is not painful or difficult and does not involve incisions or stitches. The CoolSculpting device is placed over the treatment area. You will feel a slight sucking sensation as the fatty area is pulled into the device. You may experience intense cold, tugging, pulling, mild pinching, and other sensations in the first few minutes of treatment until the area becomes numb, taking approximately five to 10 minutes.

You can read, check emails, or just relax in comfort during the remainder of the treatment. The length of your treatment can vary, based on which area or areas are being addressed. It may take as little as 35 minutes or longer. You get a brief massage after the applicator is detached to help break up the fat cells.

Is there recovery time after CoolSculpting?

There is no downtime with a non-invasive CoolSculpting treatment. You may return to work or normal activities the same day. Common side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, or tingling in the treatment area. These symptoms usually subside within a few hours.

FAQ

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting works through fat freezing, technically known as cryolipolysis. The number of fat cells we have is set during childhood and adolescence and does not change significantly after reaching adulthood. The CoolSculpting technology freezes fat cells, causing them to die. The body naturally sheds the destroyed fat cells over the weeks and months following the treatment, reducing the fat by 20 to 25%.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

Many people achieve noticeable results in as little as one treatment session. The number of treatments you will need depends on your anatomy and your treatment goals. We can custom tailor a treatment plan for you. You can expect to see a reduction of fat in the treatment area that you will see, feel, and enjoy for the long-term.

Does CoolSculpting tighten the skin?

Yes. In addition to reducing fat, CoolSculpting can also minimize skin laxity in the treatment area under the chin. In fact, it has been FDA approved to “affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.”

How soon will I see results with CoolSculpting?

You can expect to see some results in one to three months after treatment. Final results could take six months or more to be achieved – and is well worth the wait.

If you eat well and exercise, why would you need CoolSculpting?

Many people have pockets of stubborn fat in various parts of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting reduces the visible fat that remains, no matter what you do. For best results, you should be at or near your ideal weight to undergo a CoolSculpting treatment. Maintain a healthy weight after your treatment to continue to enjoy your newly sculpted look!
