Frequently Asked Questions about CoolSculpting
What is CoolSculpting treatment like?
When you decide to treat with Coolsculpting®, certain “applicators” are chosen for the specific area you want to be treated. For example, CoolAdvantage Plus is for the abdomen area or CoolFit Advantage is for the arms. These applicators will then attach to the treatment areas and stay on for the duration of the treatment.
When these applicators are put on your body, a vacuum pulls and holds the fat between cooling cup and plates, which then freeze the fats to a temperature that will freeze the area to a solid block of ice. Yes, your fats will be frozen solid.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
No damage is done to the skin, organs or any other tissues. Coolsculpting® is the ONLY treatment for destroying fat cells by freezing it. With its proven safety and high efficacy, Coolsculpting® is ONLY FDA cleared treatment for permanent fat removal. It can be used on any part of the body or face.
Coolsculpting® has been studied and tested over 10 years to ensure safe and effective. With Coolsculpting® you can have NATURAL looking results. No lump and bumps that are typical with liposuction!
What are the areas that can be treated by CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting has been designed to treat nearly every part of the body such as the abdomen, arms, love handles, bra bulges, inner and outer thighs, and even the chin.
How long does CoolSculpting take?
A Coolsculpting® treatment takes 35 minutes to 1 hour per area, depending on which applicator you choose to treat with. CoolAdvantage (the newer, faster, better, stronger) applicators for the arms, bra bulges, abdomen, love handles and inner thighs, treat in just 35 mins. Original CoolSculpting ® applicators take 1 hour to treat with. CoolMini for the chin takes 45 minutes. CoolSmooth Pro for the outer thighs and non-pinchable areas take 1 hour 15 minutes to treat with.
Because we offer multiple machines, you can treat multiple areas at once, that means you can treat BOTH love handles at once (instead of one at a time), thus reducing your treatment time.
Is there a downtime after every session?
Most people DO NOT experience any downtime but of course, it always varies per patient. A typical patient is able to resume to normal routine immediately, including working out, and travelling immediately after treatment.
How many treatments do I need to achieve the body I envision?
Since the ideal candidate for CoolSculpting® is someone who already has a healthy lifestyle, the average pocket of stubborn fat may need at most one to two treatments for ideal results. Some may choose more or less depending on their individual desires. Since each treatment yields a loss of 20-25% in the targeted area, you may choose to have further reduction with successive treatments.
What does it feel like?
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted areas. Applicators that use vacuum will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging and mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat, so you may feel intense cold. These sensations may subside as the area becomes numb. Afterwards, patients are usually able to return to normal activities with minimal downtime.
Will I see a result right after session?
CoolSculpting treatment typically requires multiple treatment sessions. The time it takes to see result varies, depending on the body area being treated.
Who are qualified for CoolSculpting?
Patients must be 21 years old and above, with stubborn fats, subcutaneous fats and not visceral fats. People who are not in good overall physical, mental and emotional health may not be good candidates for the procedure.
When can I receive my next treatment? / Can I do multiple treatment in 1 day for different areas?
Patients may schedule their next treatment 4 weeks after the session. Multiple sculpting is possible to treat different areas in one session.
