AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE?
The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Request a one-on-one consultation with a professional in your area who will determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
HOW MUCH DOES THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE COST?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. That said, the cost of a procedure usually starts at $600 per treatment, with the average patient typically opting for multiple treatments. Create a customized treatment plan, in person, with your physician that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. Many CoolSculpting practices even offer flexible spending plans to help patients achieve their goals.
HOW LONG IS EACH TREATMENT? HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Your CoolSculpting physician will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. While each CoolSculpting treatment generally lasts about 1 hour, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. Some practices even have multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators, so it’s possible for a patient to have multiple areas treated at once. You and your provider may also schedule additional treatments or office visits in order to meet your goals.
Many people read, check email, or even take a nap during their treatments.
WHERE DOES THE FAT GO? ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Check out the How It Works page to learn more.
What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you may typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
IS THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE SAFE?
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, and flank. As the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure and with millions of CoolSculpting procedures performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment.
CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day after a CoolSculpting treatment is completed.
