CoolSculpting® Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved nonsurgical body contouring treatment that uses cryolipolysis — a form of fat-freezing — to remove stubborn pockets of fat. The treatment targets areas that notoriously store extra fat, such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, flanks, and upper arms. CoolSculpting is noninvasive and requires almost no downtime.

How does CoolSculpting work?

Cryolipolysis, the process CoolSculpting uses to break down fat, is a freezing process that targets fat cells. The targeted fat cells freeze to the point that they become permanently damaged. Once the fat cells die, your body naturally removes them through the lymphatic process. The fat cells that CoolSculpting targets cannot return once removed.

What happens during CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a fairly quick procedure that takes anywhere from 35 minutes to one hour, depending on the areas you want to treat. Your aesthetic specialist may apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Next, your aesthetic specialist at Delay Laser and Medical Spa uses dual applicators to maximize the fat-freezing process. They hold the fat they want to treat between two paddles and deliver targeted energy into the area. Other than an intense sucking, tugging, or pinching sensation, you shouldn’t experience any lasting discomfort. 

What happens after CoolSculpting?

Most men and women need at least two CoolSculpting treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to see lasting results. Within weeks of your final treatment, your stubborn pockets of fat should start to diminish. Many individuals notice peak results within three to six months of their final treatment.

Will CoolSculpting help me lose weight?

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It works best for individuals who are fit and healthy, but struggle to lose stubborn areas of fat. Ideally, your body-mass index (BMI) should not exceed 25 if you wish to diminish fat deposits with CoolSculpting treatments.

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting offers several benefits over traditional liposuction for fat loss, including:

  • No incisions or anesthesia
  • Minimal downtime
  • Very little discomfort
  • No need for post-treatment pain relievers
  • No preparation needed before treatment
