Coolsculpting Questions and Answers

How does CoolSculpting work?  

CoolSculpting treatment uses innovative technology that targets and freezes fat cells.

The cold temperatures cause the fat cells to die and shrink which allows the body to naturally and gradually eliminate the dead cells.

You can choose the targeted areas on your body that you want to be treated and discuss your goals with the doctor.  

Does CoolSculpting get rid of fat? 

Yes. You can expect to see a significant difference since the fat cells are frozen and eliminated from the body.

Once the fat cells are gone they can’t come back. 

Does CoolSculpting remove stubborn fat? 

Yes. You can expect to see fat dissolve from stubborn areas of your body that have CoolSculpting treatment. Most stubborn fat areas are inherited from your ancestors and are extremely difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. Your stubborn fat areas are excellent places for CoolSculpting treatment. 

What areas of the body does CoolSculpting treat? 

  • Stomach
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Back bulge
  • Male chest
  • Under neck
  • Double chin 
  • Upper back
  • Lower back
  • Flanks
  • Knees
  • Buttocks

How fast will results appear? 

You can expect to see results within 1 to 2 months after treatment. The body needs time to naturally eliminate the dead fat cells so the timing varies per patient. Some patients see results sooner than others while others see results 6 months or later. 

What does CoolSculpting treatment feel like? 

CoolSculpting treatment allows you to relax while the targeted areas are treated. You can choose to stand up or lay down during treatment depending on the targeted areas. During CoolSculpting treatment you can expect to experience a cold feeling and numbness in the area during treatment. 

Does the cold feeling go away? 

Many patients experience cold temperatures on the surface of their skin during and after treatment. During treatment, the cold feeling turns to numbness that later restores back to your normal body temperature. Some patients feel the cold temperature longer than others but it always goes away in time. 

Does CoolSculpting treatment hurt? 

No. CoolSculpting treatment is a pleasant experience for most patients. The device is placed on the surface of the skin in the targeted area. There is no pain involved in the treatment.  

Are CoolSculpting treatment results permanent? 

Yes. CoolSculpting treatment is permanent because the dead fat cells that have been eliminated from the body can’t grow back. However, some patients that did not follow a healthy diet or exercise program afterward gained weight evenly throughout their body and needed to schedule more appointments.
