What is CoolSculpting?

The innovative CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical procedure that sculpts and shapes your body by freezing away stubborn fat. To tighten your figure, CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to freeze fat cells so your body can naturally eliminate them.

How does CoolSculpting work?

After designing your treatment plan, we will schedule your first procedure. At your appointment, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece is applied to the treatment area. The CoolSculpting device will target and freeze the fat. If you want to treat multiple areas, we can perform dual CoolSculpting, which allows us to use two devices during one session. That way, you can target two treatment areas during one appointment. Overall, this treatment method helps you save time. You will likely feel coolness during your procedure, but this does not typically create any pain. While the CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to remove fat cells from the treatment area, you may experience a slight tugging or pinching. These feelings are completely normal.

What To Expect After CoolSculpting

Because CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can return to your normal activities right after the treatment. Side effects of CoolSculpting may include swelling, bruising, stinging, redness, or discomfort near the treatment site. These symptoms are temporary and should subside in a few hours. Three weeks after your treatment, you should start to notice the results. However, the most dramatic results happen within 1 – 3 months after your CoolSculpting procedure. 

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

The expense of CoolSculpting depends on the number of sessions required and the quantity of fat we remove. At your consultation, we'll discuss your desired outcomes and create a tailored treatment plan that outlines the details. After we have a treatment plan, we'll talk about any out-of-pocket costs.

CoolSculpting FAQs

How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting involves applying a controlled cold temperature to target fat cells in predetermined regions for treatment. Basically, it freezes the cells until they die. The cells are broken up by the body and discharged through natural functions.

Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical, external procedure in which the device is applied only to the skin’s surface. With this therapy, there's absolutely no need for a healing period. You might notice some slight swelling and discoloration immediately following the session, but that generally subsides in about one week.

How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions necessary to reach your wanted outcome will be decided during your consultation. For many patients, only one treatment is sufficient, but others may need more therapy sessions dependent on the amount of fat being removed. The amount of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic objectives and if you have larger layers of fat in target areas.

Can the fat cells grow back?
While the affected fat cells will not regenerate, new fat cells can form. Furthermore, significant weight gain can greatly influence your results. So in order to keep your desired results, it's advised that you stick to a healthy diet plan and exercise routine.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The expense of CoolSculpting depends on the number of treatments required and the quantity of fat that you wish to have removed. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals to ascertain the best course of treatment to attain optimal results. We'll also speak with you about any anticipated out-of-pocket expenses.

How long do CoolSculpting results last?
The fat cells removed during the procedure are gone for good, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important for long-term results.
