CoolSculpting® Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat reduction treatment that freezes and permanently destroys unwanted fat cells through a process called cryolipolysis. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body naturally removes them through your lymphatic system over a 12-16 week period.

The entire procedure is safe, painless, and requires no anesthesia. Each treatment cycle takes about 35-45 minutes to complete, depending on the applicator needed.

Which areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to treat unwanted fat nearly anywhere on the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Knees
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Rolls under buttocks
  • Back
  • Underneath the chin (submental)
The staff at Elevate are experienced CoolSculpting providers, and they can design a personalized treatment plan that targets multiple areas of unwanted fat in a single session.

What can I expect from CoolSculpting?

Not really sure if Coolsculpting is for you? Let's start off with a complimentary consult. At the consult phase, we will review what CoolSculpting is and what it can do for you. Your treatment area will be assessed to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. A staff member will go over the treatment process and the expected outcomes. Pricing will only be given after a consult is completed. 
Then, once you arrive at Elevate Medical Aesthetics and Wellness for your CoolSculpting session, we will obtain pictures, a current weight, an informed consent, and review any further questions you may have. You can then relax and lie back while a trained staff member performs your personalized treatment. Once you’re comfortable, The appropriate applicator will be applied to your skin and the treatment will begin. The treatment may be done within an hour or up to several hours, depending on how many applicators are used.
You may experience a cold sensation and some mild pressure, but the treatment should not feel painful or uncomfortable. You can sit back and enjoy some quiet time or catch up on your favorite show on our streaming TV.

With the NEW CoolSculpting ELITE, we can treat more than one area at once through two separate applicators, which allows your session to progress faster.

It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it focuses on small pockets of unwanted fat. The ideal patient for CoolSculpting is relatively fit, healthy and active.

Is there downtime with CoolSculpting?

There is no downtime after CoolSculpting. You can return to your normal activities almost right away. You may experience minor swelling, numbness, and redness at the treatment site, but these are normal side effects that should subside within a few weeks.

When will I see results from CoolSculpting?

It takes time for your body to process and remove unwanted fat cells. Most patients see results from CoolSculpting in as early as 6 weeks, with the ultimate result showing within 12-16 weeks of treatment. Once your body removes these cells, they cannot grow back. It is important to realize though that remaoining fat cells can enlarge with weight gain.

Most patients need only one treatment to see lasting results from CoolSculpting, but many will require 2-3 sessions. Some patients can benefit from an additional maintenance treatment. However, a healthy lifestyle that includes a well-balanced diet and regular exercise is essential to maintain your results.
