CoolSculpting® Q & A



What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical fat elimination technology that freezes fat cells so your body can permanently eliminate them. The CoolSculpting system is safe and FDA-cleared to reduce fat using a controlled cooling method. The results are long-lasting and allow you to reshape those stubborn areas of your body that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting® is effective for eliminating fat in stubborn areas, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles and muffin tops)
  • Double chin
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arms

How does CoolSculpting® work?

The science behind the CoolSculpting® technology makes it possible to freeze away fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue. The procedure is safe, precise, and controlled, targeting only fat cells. The fat cells under the surface of your skin freeze, and your body naturally eliminates the dead cells over time. The result is a slimmer, more sculpted appearance in the treated area.

Because fat cells die off and are eliminated from your body, the results of CoolSculpting® treatments are long-term. The fat is gone for good!

What should I expect during a CoolSculpting treatment?

The first step in the CoolSculpting® process is meeting with one of the knowledgeable, trained technicians for a consultation. During the consultation, your technicians answers your questions and discusses a customized treatment plan to meet your needs and help you achieve your goals.

You may only need one treatment or several, depending on how many areas you’re treating and the desired outcome. During one session you may choose to freeze away fat on one area of your body, such as your abdomen, and a different area, such as your inner thighs during that same session, or on a different day. Since we have 6 systems in each ThinSculpting location, we can get as much done in one day as you desire.

During the CoolSculpting® treatment, your highly trained technician applies a gel pad and applicator to the targeted area of your body. The applicator delivers controlled cooling temperatures to the fat in that area, freezing it away. You may feel intense cold, stinging, or a mild pulling and tugging sensation in the treatment area. The cold typically subsides within 10 minutes, and the other sensations subside as the area becomes numb.

For the most part, the sensations are easily tolerated, and many adults relax or fall asleep during the treatment. In most cases, you can return to your daily activities immediately following the CoolSculpting® procedure. There is no need to plan for downtime since it’s non-surgical and non-invasive.
