What To Expect Before CoolSculpting® Treatment

Before getting a CoolSculpting® treatment, it is highly recommended that you visit your physician to determine if you are a candidate. Dr. Stevens assessed that Melissa was a good candidate for this CoolSculpting® treatment because she had subcutaneous fat (fat you can grab or tug on) and realistic expectations. Every body is different, which is why it is important to set proper expectations with your treating physician before getting a CoolSculpting® treatment. 

“Fat cells are more sensitive to cold than our skin and muscles. After 10 years of research, CoolSculpting® came up with the exact temperature to kill a fat cell.

- Dr. Grant Stevens

What To Expect During CoolSculpting® Treatment

Treatment times vary depending on what part of the body you are having treated. The majority of treatments take 35-minutes per treated area, allowing enough time for a quick show or to take a snooze before you head back to work. 

Many practices offer the opportunity to have multiple areas treated in a single day! The most common areas treated with the FDA-cleared CoolSculpting® treatment are the abdomen, love handles, back fat, bra fat, outer or inner thighs, and upper arms. What area(s) would you have treated?

What to Expect After CoolSculpting® Treatment

CoolSculpting® is a FDA-cleared, safe and effective way to reduce fat by delivering precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin, a process known as cryolipolysis. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die.

After your CoolSculpting® treatment, your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, leaving a more sculpted you! Remember, CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure, but a nonsurgical way of reducing the fat in those stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.

After a CoolSculpting® treatment, patients can expect up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in the treated area, but it is important to remember that CoolSculpting® is NOT a weight-loss procedure.
