CoolSculpting Frequently Asked Questions


Below are some of the most popular and frequently asked questions from our NYC patients about CoolSculpting. 

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure that eliminates stubborn fat that diet and exercise can’t touch.

The procedure involves using technology to freeze fat cells in targeted areas that are naturally eliminated from the body at a later time.

For many NYC patients who have stubborn fat that just won’t go away no matter what you do or how long your exercise or diet, Coolsculpting is an excellent option for body contouring. 

Continue reading to find out the answers to the most commonly asked questions about CoolSculpting from our NYC patients. 

Question: Am I an ideal candidate?

Answer: Ideal candidates are in good shape and have a regular exercise regimen in place. CoolSculpting is designed to target stubborn fat that doesn’t go away with normal diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is not a solution for people who are obese.

Question: How many sessions will I need? 

Answer: Treatment plans are customized to each patient to meet their specific needs. Treatment sessions are determined by the number of areas being treated. 

Question: How much does CoolSculpting Cost?

Answer: The average cost for CoolSculpting in NYC ranges between $2,000 and $4,000. The cost depends on the number of sessions needed to create the desired look. The number of sessions and the cost is discussed during your consultation.

Question: What does CoolSculpting treatment feel like?  

Answer: Overall, the treatment is relaxing and many patients watch videos, work on their laptops or take a nap. However, during the first few minutes of treatment, you will feel intense cold and pressure in the treated area but it quickly dissipates. 

Question: Are the results permanent? 

Answer: Yes. The treated fat cells are frozen and your body naturally eliminates the dead cells.  

Question: Is CoolSculpting treatment safe? 

Answer: Yes. It is proven to be an effective and safe treatment that has been FDA-cleared to treat specific areas of the body such as love handles, back, arms, abdomen, chin, and thighs.  

Question: When will I see results? 

Answer: Most patients begin to see CoolSculpting results as quickly as three weeks after treatment. However, the noticeable results are often revealed two months after treatment. The body needs time to flush the dead fat cells out of the system and for some people this can take four to six months. 

Question: Does CoolSculpting treatment have any side effects? 

Answer: Typical side effects include temporary tingling, firmness, stinging, pain, bruising, redness, swelling, and numbness in the treated area. If you suffer from paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or cryoglobulinemia, you should not have the CoolSculpting procedure. 

Question: Can I return to normal activities after CoolSculpting treatment?

Answer: Yes. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that allows you to return to normal daily activities immediately after your treatment session. 

Question: Do I need to follow a special diet after CoolSculpting treatment? 

Answer: No. Most patients already follow a balanced diet and regular exercise routine. However, some patients enjoy the results so much they take pride in taking care of their body to prevent themselves from gaining weight which could include a healthy diet and exercise.
