What is CoolSculpting body contouring?
CoolSculpting body contouring is an FDA-cleared method for fat reduction and body sculpting. This safe, modern technology is used to target the fat cells that are underneath the skin so that the individual does not feel any pain, and the skin remains unaffected by the treatment. The procedure is quick and pain-free and results in fitter, leaner bodies, and individuals who are more confident in their skin.*
Is CoolSculpting right for me?
Good candidates for CoolSculpting body contouring have noticeable bulges in targeted areas that they’d like to address. Treatable areas include the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen, flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and the upper arms. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, an excellent option for those looking to sculpt troublesome areas.
How does it work?
Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. 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), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and expels these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.*
How do the treatments feel?
During the first few minutes of cooling, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates, and patients experience no pain. Many people read, use their phone, or take a nap during their appointment.
When will I notice my results?
While you may start to see some changes 3 weeks after your treatment, you will notice the most dramatic results around 8 weeks.* However, your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 6 months after the procedure.*
Can I return to my routine schedule after my treatment?
This fat reduction procedure is entirely non-surgical so most people can resume their regular activities immediately. Patients frequently return to work after the session is finished.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
Yes, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Typically, there is minimal to no downtime after the procedure, though some patients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Numbness can persist for several weeks after the procedure, but eventually, it will fade.
