CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure for non-surgical fat reduction.

The CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells through the lymphatic system (you excrete them through using the bathroom), leaving a more sculpted you.

You can reduce fat on multiple areas of your body with the CoolSculpting procedure, and additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored just for you and your area(s) of concern.


CoolSculpting Q & A

What should I expect during/after treatment?

With the CoolSculpting procedure, you will feel the suction from the applicator being placed on the skin. This suction pulls the tissue away from the body to allow precise controlled cooling of a secluded area. You may feel the intense cold for the first 5-10 minutes, and then your skin should go numb from the cooling. Treatments are 34-45 minutes depending on the applicator being used. Once the treatment is done, a 2 minute massage is performed to break up the frozen fat cells and get circulation back flowing to the area to kick start the healing process. Your skin in the area being treated will be “numb” or have a dulling of sensation for about 4 or so weeks after the treatment. Possible “pins & needles” sensation may occur within a few days, along with sometimes deeper onset itching that is all temporary.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

The areas that are FDA cleared are:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Inner and Outer thighs
  • Back/Bra fat
  • Chin
  • Upper arms
  • Distal knee
  • And newly cleared Banana roll (under buttocks)

How much downtime is expected?

With CoolSculpting, there is no downtime other than some tenderness and a little inflammation after being treated. The skin will have a dulled sensation (numbness) for about 4 or so weeks, and a little inflammation within the first few days when the healing process kicks in. There can be some discomfort similar to a bruised feeling when touched for 1-3 weeks after the treatment. There are no restrictions as to what you can and cannot do after the treatment.

What kind of results can I expect?

Results can be seen as soon as 4 weeks, but can also take up to 4 months sometimes to see the full result. CoolSculpting reduces approx. 15%-25% of fat cells in each area per treatment. Results vary as everyone’s body is different and there is no determining factor of who will have a better result per treatment. CoolSculpting is permanent as long as you stay in about a 50 pound range. Treatments will vary per person, as everyone’s body and target areas are different.
