What is CoolSculpting? Can you tell me more about it?
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. Your doctor will determine if you are a good candidate and work with you to determine the best treatment plan during a one-on-one consultation.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Your doctor will determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.

What happens during the CoolSculpting treatment?
You and your doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. Your doctor will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.

What does it feel like when you remove the fat?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes of the CoolSculpting treatment, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

How long is each CoolSculpting treatment?
During your consultation, your doctor will discuss how much time should be allotted based on your individual treatment plan. A typical CoolSculpting treatment can last between one and three hours.

Can I return to normal activities after my CoolSculpting treatment?
Yes you can. This fat removal procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.

What will my results be? How much fat can I expect to loss?
Typically, each CoolSculpting treatment results in a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. It is FDA approved to reduce 20% to 30% of your fat. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss. Some patients find that just one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your doctor will discuss and design a plan that suits you best.

When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after the CoolSculpting treatment.

What is a Treatment Area?
Each area where we apply an applicator is an “area”. Typical areas would be a love handle, an abdomen or a thigh.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after the CoolSculpting treatment, too. Like they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

Is CoolSculpting safe? Painful? Are there side effects?
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the flanks (love handles) and abdomen and is proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Typically, there is minimal to no downtime after the treatment though patients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Numbness can persist up to several weeks after a procedure. Your doctor can talk to you more about what to expect during and after treatment when you meet for your consultation.

How much does CoolSculpting cost? How many treatments will I need?
The price for CoolSculpting varies, depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals. Your doctor would need to assess you in person to help estimate the cost. Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit, but you may appreciate even more fat reduction with additional treatments.

How long do the results last?
When you have your CoolSculpting treatment, the affected fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.
