CoolSculpting Q & A

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting features technology that freezes fat cells so their integrity is disrupted and they die. Over time, they’re naturally flushed from your body so they can’t swell back up or regenerate.

CoolSculpting energy penetrates your outer layers of skin to target the fat cells. You experience no damage to the outer layers of your dermis. Unlike some other fat-reduction methods, CoolSculpting uses no injections, incisions, or anesthesia.

Where can CoolSculpting treatments be applied?

CoolSculpting is designed for targeted fat reduction, not comprehensive weight loss. You should be near your normal weight before undergoing treatment.

The best places for CoolSculpting treatment are those that stubbornly hold onto fat, even after you’ve lost weight successfully. These include the:

  • Love handles
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Abdominal pooch
  • Underside of the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin

Discuss your problem areas with your provider to find out how CoolSculpting can help.

How long do the results of CoolSculpting last?

CoolSculpting is a permanent solution for unwanted fat, unlike traditional methods of weight loss, where fat cells simply shrink but still have the potential to swell if you overeat or stop exercising. With CoolSculpting, the process destroys fat cells so they can’t swell up or regenerate.

Any fat cells not destroyed with CoolSculpting can plump up, however, if you eat too many calories. Maintain a healthy lifestyle following treatment to preserve your results for the long term.

When will I see results from CoolSculpting treatments?

It takes time for your body to eliminate the destroyed fat cells, so you won’t see noticeable results for about three weeks. Optimal results appear in about two months, but you continue to flush out the damaged fat cells for 4-6 months.

How many sessions of CoolSculpting will I need?

Many patients are satisfied with the results they get from one session of CoolSculpting, but you may prefer a series of treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals. Your provider puts together a set of recommendations according to your personal physique goals.
