Top 10 CoolSculpting Questions Answered
If you’ve been looking for ways to get rid of stubborn fat, you’ve probably come across a revolutionary treatment known as CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is the leading non-invasive body contouring procedure that is so effective, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery compares the results to those of liposuction.
After learning that a non-invasive treatment can provide the same results as risky liposuction, we know you want to learn more, and we are happy to oblige.
Here we answer the top 10 CoolSculpting questions we get asked.
1. Is CoolSculpting Safe?
Yes, CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved technique that is both a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted fat deposits in the body.
Millions of satisfied patients worldwide and numerous scientific studies confirm that CoolSculpting is a safe treatment.
2. How Does CoolSculpting Work
CoolSculpting uses a technique called cryolipolysis to target areas of your body where it’s more challenging to get rid of fat through traditional methods like diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting device delivers cold temperatures to the target area to break down fat cells. The cold temperatures only target fat cells, so there is no damage to the skin or underlying tissue.
Approximately a quarter of the targeted fat cells will undergo irreparable damage and die. The body will then naturally clear these dead fat cells and eliminate them from your system.
3. Is CoolSculpting Painful?
The experience is different for each patient. For example, some patients report slight discomfort at the beginning of the treatment as the device suctions the targeted area into the applicator.
As the applicator begins cooling the area, patients typically report intense cold, but this sensation dissipates quickly, lasting only a few minutes. The treated area usually goes numb within 5-10 minutes.
The device comes with a patented CoolControl monitor that uses an intelligent feedback loop to monitor your body temperature and deliver the optimal temperature required for comfortable treatment without compromising the results.
4. What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

5. Can Men Also Benefit from CoolSculpting?
Yes! CoolSculpting is the best fat reduction treatment approved by the FDA for both men and women.
6. How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Treatment sessions typically last one hour. How many sessions you will need depends on the target area and your specific goals.
Our CoolSculpting technicians will create a plan that addresses your unique needs. Should you need multiple sessions, we will schedule these spaced six weeks apart.
7. How Much Fat Can CoolSculpting Remove?
All bodies are different, and therefore some patients respond better than others to the treatment. However, on average, CoolSculpting will reduce the number of fat cells in a treated area by about 25%.
8. How Fast Will I See Results?
Results in fat volume reduction will be gradual as your body needs time to metabolize dead fat cells naturally.
Most patients start seeing results in the treated area two to three weeks following the procedure and reach full effect within three months.
Your weight will probably not change. However, the unsightly fat bulges will start to disappear, revealing a more sculpted body. So even though you will weigh the same, you will look thinner, feel better, and your clothes will fit better.
9. Will I Need Time to Recover?
The treatment doesn’t require any downtime. Straight after your session, you can return to your regular daily activity; you can even go to the gym immediately after your treatment.
Following the procedure, you may experience residual numbness in the treated area, but this will subside within a couple of hours.
10. Are the Results Permanent?
Yes, our CoolSculpting results are permanent. However, the results will be less noticeable if you gain any new weight in the treated area.
To help maximize the results of Coolsculpting, our expert nutritionists can create a personalized meal plan for you that will help you lose some extra pounds and enjoy the results of your CoolSculpting for longer.
