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.

The entire procedure is safe, painless, and requires no anesthesia. Each treatment area takes about 35 minutes to complete for lasting fat loss.

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)

Marti is an experienced CoolSculpting provider, and she can design a personalized treatment plan that targets multiple areas of unwanted fat in a single session.

What can I expect from CoolSculpting?

When you arrive at Elevate Medical Spa for your CoolSculpting session, you can relax and lie back while Marti performs your personalized treatment. Once you’re comfortable, Marti applies the device to your skin. 

You may experience a cold sensation and some mild pressure, but the treatment should not feel painful or uncomfortable.

With the NEW CoolSculpting ELITE, we can treat more than one area at once through two separate applicators.

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 and healthy.

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. 

Most patients need only one treatment to see lasting results from CoolSculpting. 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.
