What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that produces body-contouring results – without requiring plastic surgery. CoolSculpting accomplishes this goal by using cryolipolysis (freezing) to directly target and crystallize stubborn fat cells clustered underneath the skin. Over the next few weeks, the treated fat cells are removed by the body’s metabolic processes, meaning those particular fat cells won’t ever come back.
Clinical CoolSculpting trials have shown that a single treatment can produce up to 25% fat reduction, making this an excellent non-surgical alternative for patients interested in body contouring.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?
You’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatments if you’re within 15 to 30 pounds of your ideal weight, have good skin tone, and follow a healthy diet and workout regimen. Popular areas for CoolSculpting treatments include:
- Upper arms
- Bra fat
- Chest (for men)
- Armpit fat
- Underneath the chin
- And more
How Long Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Take?
A typical CoolSculpting treatment takes about one hour to perform for a small area and can be more based on the number of areas needing treatment.
What Results Will I See?
Results can include noticeable fat loss, meaning you may fit a lot more comfortably in your favorite outfits. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting should not be used as a weight-loss solution.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime associated with CoolSculpting, but you may feel a little sore after your procedure. Some patients experience mild swelling, bruising, redness, numbness, itchiness, and tenderness at the treatment site. These all resolve with time. Contact your CoolSculpting provider if any of the above symptoms last for longer than one month.
