CoolSculpting FAQ

CoolSculpting, also known as fat freezing, uses advanced cooling technology to “freeze” fat cells. This treatment is entirely non-invasive and requires no surgery or recovery. CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn isolated pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

CoolSculpting treatments start at $750. The cost per treatment varies depending on the unique needs of each person. Some factors determine prices, like the number of treatment areas selected and the type of applicators used. You can generally achieve special prices on cooling session packages.

Does CoolSculpting Work?

Yes, CoolSculpting does work. It is cleared by the FDA and scientifically shown to be effective at reducing fat cells. A study shows one cooling session with CoolSculpting reduces fat by 25% in the treatment area.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?

CoolSculpting is proven to provide lasting results. Once the fat cells die and process out of the body, they can never return or regrow. The results are natural-looking and last long. It is important for patients not to gain excessive weight after CoolSculpting. Weight gain can obscure results.

Will CoolSculpting Hurt?

CoolSculpting is virtually painless. Some patients may experience a tugging feeling or intense cold at the treatment site. Once the area becomes numb, it allows patients to relax and enjoy the treatment.

Can I Cool Sculpt My Own Fat at Home?

DIY CoolSculpting or CoolSculpting at home is dangerous. You cannot cool sculpt your own fat. In fact, trying to do this can result in thermal damage or frostbite to the skin. CoolSculpting should only ever be done by a licensed professional.

When Will CoolSculpting Results Appear?

Most people see CoolSculpting results 8 to 12 weeks after their cooling session. Some may even see results sooner. The fat reduction can appear for up to 6 months afterward.

Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?

CoolSculpting treatments are not always right for everyone. Since it is not a weight-loss treatment and should never be used to treat obesity, the ideal candidate is a healthy, active adult who struggles with resistant fat. The best way to determine treatment candidacy is to schedule a consultation with a reputable professional near you.

Will I Lose Weight With CoolSculpting?

Since CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment, you won’t necessarily lose lbs. Instead, you will see a reduction in fat. Regular weight loss treatments shrink fat cells, but CoolSculpting eliminates them, helping people achieve noticeable fat loss.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared as safe. It also has a high safety profile with millions of successful treatments done daily. Adverse reactions or risks are extremely rare. However, it is recommended you select a reputable, licensed provider to safeguard against any side effects.
