What Is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that can reduce the number of fat cells in a given area using cryolipolysis technology. This approach freezes fat cells underneath the skin, causing them to be dissolved by the body at a later time. This results in a slimmer contour and a more balanced aesthetic appearance. It is estimated that Coolsculpting can reduce a fat layer by up to 25%. It is safe, reliable, and one of the most well-known and performed solutions on the aesthetics market.

What Does Coolsculpting Treat?

Coolsculpting can treat unwanted fat in any of the following areas:

  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Bra bulge area
  • Back
  • Beneath buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Below the jawline
  • Double chin area

If your area of concern is somewhere different, don’t worry — there are still plenty of areas not listed that Coolsculpting may be able to treat. If Coolsculpting is not an option, we will work with you to find a treatment plan that can safely achieve your aesthetic goals.


Am I a Candidate for Coolsculpting?

If you are experiencing unwanted buildups of stubborn fat, then you are likely going to be a candidate for this procedure. There are no limitations based on skin type or texture, and it can be used on most age groups. The best candidates are those who have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with the treatment. If you come in with unrealistic desires, you will likely find yourself disappointed by what would be otherwise considered a successful procedure.

How Should I Prepare for Coolsculpting?

The procedure and recovery are relatively minor, so you will not need to worry about any extensive preparations for Coolsculpting treatment. We recommend asking as many questions about the process as possible so you are fully prepared for the process, and you should always do plenty of research to know exactly what you are getting into. We can help direct you to valuable resources and information during your initial consultation.

What Should I Expect from a Coolsculpting Procedure?

The Coolsculpting process is straightforward. One of our medical specialists will apply a gel pad and Coolsculpting device to the area you are hoping to slim. The device delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells, and it is then moved across the surrounding area as well to help maintain a balanced aesthetic. Once the entire process is complete, the area treated will be cleaned of the gel, and you will be sent home.

While most people need about two or three of these treatments to see ideal results, the total number of sessions will depend entirely on your aesthetic goals, the amount of correction being made and your body’s reaction to the treatment. We will help you monitor your progress and adapt your treatment plan as necessary.

What Should I Expect During Coolsculpting Recovery?

The vast majority of patients are able to return to their normal routines immediately after the procedure. There is no recovery or downtime that you will need to plan for, making it a great option for someone who has a busy schedule or many responsibilities to manage. This is perhaps one of the biggest advantages over other treatments; there is no impact on the other parts of your life.

With that being said, it is possible you will have some redness or soreness after the procedure. These effects do not require medications, not even over-the-counter varieties, and our patients describe them as minor or negligible at worst.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Coolsculpting?

Within three weeks of the first procedure, it is possible that you will start to notice some improvement as the dead fat cells are absorbed by the body. By two or three months, you should expect to have a clear idea of what your long-term results will look like, but the fat-absorption process can take up to six months to complete.

Your body cannot produce new fat cells, so your results will be permanent. Keep in mind though, that this will not prevent fat from accumulating in other parts of the body — potentially areas that you did not previously accumulate.

Can I Combine My Coolsculpting with Other Procedures?

Coolsculpting can be combined with a host of different procedures, including:

  1. Cellfina
  2. CoolTone
  3. UltraShape
  4. VelaShape
  5. Vein treatments
  6. Laser hair removal
