Frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting
Am I a candidate?
If you’re bothered by stubborn fat that you can’t get rid of with exercise and diet, you may be a
candidate. Although it is ideal for anyone who is within 20 to 30 pounds of their ideal body
weight, CoolSculpting may be suitable for anyone out of that range as well. As long as you have
stubborn fat that bulges, you may be a candidate. A free consultation with one of our highly
qualified medical consultants will help you figure out if this treatment is right for you.
Individuals with cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria may not be suitable
What happens during my treatment?
The area to be treated is placed between two plates, which is held in place by a suctioning
device. The plates deliver cooling energy directly to the fat. You may feel the intense cold at
first, but you’ll become accustomed to it quickly and no longer feel anything. This takes about
five to 10 minutes. More than one area can be treated during your session. Patients often find
their sessions so comfortable and relaxing that they fall asleep. If you have work to do, feel
free to use your phone, iPad or laptop, because it won’t interfere with your sessions.
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes.
Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment. What to
Expect has more information about what happens before, during, and after your CoolSculpting
How many sessions do I need?
All you need is one to three sessions. Of course this depends on how much fat you’d like to get
rid of, and how many areas you’d like to treat. Each session destroys 20% to 25% of the fat
cells in an area.
Do I need to take time off from work?
No, you can return to all regular daily activities immediately after your treatment.
When will I see my results?
You’ll need to wait a few weeks to see results. This is because your body needs time to remove
the destroyed fat cells. The soonest you may see results is about three weeks, but ideal results
take about one to three months or so to appear.
How much weight can I lose?
CoolSculpting isn’t for weight loss. It’s to sculpt the treated area (hence the name) by
destroying fat. You won’t see much difference on the scale, but you will see a huge difference
in how you look!
Are there any side effects or risks?
There are a few side effects related to the treatment. All are minor and temporary.
numbness (can last about a week or so)
Most of the time,
however, patients do not experience any side effects at all. In very rare cases, some pain may
be felt during and after treatment which can be alleviated with pain medication. One case of
frostbite has also been reported, but it went away without problem.
Can I get as many treatments as I want?
As long as you have bulging fat which is “grab-able”, you can get treated. However, CoolSculpting
has achieved such a high rate of satisfaction for patients that after the originally recommended
number of sessions have been completed, it is rare for patients to request more.
What happens to my skin?
Because this technology has no effect on any other tissues except fat, the state of your skin
will not change in any way. If you have lax skin, you may want to consider a skin tightening
