If you have pockets of unwanted subcutaneous fat tissues that you just can’t eliminate, despite regular workouts and dieting, you might want to consider CoolSculpting. This is the world’s first non-invasive fat reduction technique based on the principles of cryolipolysis. With CoolSculpting, we can target, freeze, and eliminate unwanted pockets of fat from different parts of your body — no incisions, no scars, no downtime.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction technique wherein the unwanted fat cells are frozen and expelled from the body. This is a body contouring procedure that helps you achieve the ideal body contours.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting works on the principles of cryolipolysis. The provider places applicators on the targeted body parts to freeze the unwanted subcutaneous fat tissues, i.e., the pinchable fat cells just underneath the skin. Fat cells can’t survive extremely cold temperatures, so they’re flushed away into the lymphatic system for subsequent expulsion from the body. CoolSculpting reduces up to 25% fat cells from the targeted regions within 3 months.
Is CoolSculpting right for me?
CoolSculpting is right for patients seeking a fat reduction in specific parts of the body. This treatment only works for subcutaneous fat tissues, i.e., the stubborn pockets of fat located just underneath the skin. Furthermore, you should be close to your goal weight because this isn’t a weight loss procedure either. When assessing if you’re a candidate for CoolSculpting, you can follow this mantra — if it’s squeezable, it’s freezable.
Which body parts can CoolSculpting treat?
- Abdomen or belly fat
- Bra and back fat
- Banana rolls below the buttocks
- Face and neck, including the double chin and jawline
- Flanks, also known as love handles or muffin top
- Legs, including the inner thighs, outer thighs, and knee fat
- Male chest
- Upper arms
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting depends on numerous factors, including the location of the targeted areas, the number of treatments you need, and your desired goals. Please contact our CoolSculpting providers — they will curate a personalized plan and offer an exact quote for the treatment.
Can CoolSculpting help with weight loss?
CoolSculpting is meant for fat reduction, not weight loss. To understand the difference between fat reduction and weight loss, you must understand how fat functions within the body. The average human adult has a consistent number of fat cells throughout their lifetime. Your fat cells may expand or contract when you gain or lose weight, but the number doesn’t change.
If you’re overweight or obese, you need weight loss procedures that reduce the size of your existing fat cells. However, body contouring focuses on fat reduction, which means the unwanted fat cells from targeted regions are expelled from your body. As such, CoolSculpting permanently changes your body proportions, helping you achieve a contoured physique.
If you’re obese or overweight, you can’t opt for CoolSculpting because this procedure can only remove a small number of unwanted fat cells from targeted regions. You should ideally be within 30 pounds of your goal weight to opt for non-invasive fat reduction with CoolSculpting.
What happens during the CoolSculpting treatment?
During the CoolSculpting session, the provider will attach gel pads and applicators to the treatment areas. When activated, the applicator will cool the unwanted fat cells while creating a suction force — you will feel pinching and pulling sensation. Once the fat cells in the treatment area are frozen, the provider will massage the area to break up and release the fat cells.
How long does a CoolSculpting session last?
The duration of your overall CoolSculpting sessions depends on the number of treatment areas — each treatment area takes approximately 35 minutes.
How many CoolSculpting sessions do I need?
Each CoolSculpting session reduces up to 25% fat cells from the targeted region. As such, your provider will carefully examine your treatment area and discuss your goals to determine the number of sessions you need.
Is there any downtime after CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting doesn’t involve any downtime — you can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment.
When will I see the CoolSculpting results?
The results of your CoolSculpting treatment will start appearing after a month, with continued improvements over 2 to 3 months. The subcutaneous fat cells in the targeted area should be reduced by up to 25% within 3 months.
Is the CoolSculpting treatment safe?
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for non-invasive fat reduction in nine treatment areas. It has been performed on millions of patients worldwide, and the results are safe and consistent. You may experience mild redness, tenderness, bruising, and other side effects for a few days, but there are no harsh complications.
