Frequently Asked Questions

Have you ever wished you could kill off those pesky fat cells that never seem to respond to all your hard work of diet and exercise? Well, now there is a way to do just that. CoolSculpting is a procedure that freezes fat cells and helps reduce them*. This FDA approved procedure has gained tremendous popularity due to the benefits it produces without all the downtime. If you are hesitant to try liposuction, CoolSculpting may be a great alternative for you to consider.

Coolscultping is a fat reduction procedure for individuals carrying excess pockets of fat in the abdomen, arms, or legs that tends to be resistant to exercise and diet. The Coolsculpting applicator gently pinches the fatty area and cools the fat to a temperature that causes the fat cells to freeze and die while not harming the surrounding tissues or skin. Most patients see significant results after a single treatment but some patients may require additional treatments to gain their desired results.

Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses an applicator to cool the treated area to a temperature that causes fat cells to freeze and die. The procedure requires no anesthesia or downtime and is a great FDA approved alternative to liposuction.

There is no downtime with the Coolsculpting procedure. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment.

The risks of the Coolsculpting procedure include the possible side effects that may occur immediately following the treatment. Such possible side effects include:

  • Temporary numbness
  • Redness
  • Swelling or bruising
  • Firmness
  • Tingling
  • Stinging sensation/ pain

None of these side effects are permanent and will subside shortly after your treatment has ended.

As a non-surgical non-invasive alternative to liposuction, Coolsculpting is great for busy men and women who do not have the time for a full recovery process required of a surgical procedure. Since no anesthesia is required, it is also recommended for people who have negative reactions to or fear of anesthesia. The treatment is done in-office and takes approximately an hour to complete. Most patients return to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
