How Coolsculpting Works

Coolsculpting employs a method called cryolipolysis. This process involves cooling targeted fat cells to a temperature that destroys them without harming surrounding tissues. Once these cells are crystallized, they die and are naturally processed and eliminated by the body. The result? A more sculpted, contoured you. The best part is that our bodies cannot produce new fat cells; once they are gone, they are gone — so as long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, your results are permanent.

FAQs

Why Do We Need Coolsculpting?

As we age, our metabolism slows dramatically, making it harder to shed those pesky pockets of fat. Plus, due to genetics, some people are simply unable to lose fat at a reliable rate or address specific areas of the body. We can all be prone to things like excess fat in the belly, arms, or love handles, even if we are being healthy and active. Coolsculpting addresses this by targeting these stubborn areas and destroying the fat cells themselves.

Am I a Candidate for Coolsculpting?

If you’re someone with noticeable bulges in certain areas you’d like to get rid of, Coolsculpting might be for you. Ideal candidates are those close to their ideal weight but need a bit of help with areas resistant to diet and exercise. However, keep in mind, this is not a weight-loss solution. The best candidates also understand that every treatment has limits and come in with healthy and realistic expectations about what the technology can achieve. Ultimately, a consultation with our office will help determine if this treatment aligns with your goals.

How Should I Prepare for Coolsculpting?

As you gear up for your Coolsculpting session, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure optimal results. It’s beneficial to stay well-hydrated leading up to the procedure. It’s also wise to steer clear of anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, a few days before your appointment to minimize the risk of bruising. On the day of the treatment, opt for comfortable clothing to make the process smoother. It’s crucial to discuss any medications or concerns with your provider beforehand. Additionally, for the sake of your skin health and to optimize the results, it’s recommended to limit alcohol consumption and, if you use nicotine products, consider quitting as soon as possible. Both excess drinking and nicotine can inhibit your results and negatively impact your skin’s health.

What Is Coolsculpting Recovery Like?

  • Immediately After: Mild redness, tingling, or numbness in the treated area.
  • First Few Days: Possible minor swelling or bruising. These side effects are temporary and will resolve on their own.
  • 1-3 Weeks Post-Treatment: Dead fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body. Some patients start to see results.
  • 1-3 Months Post-Treatment: Most noticeable results as the body continues to flush out fat cells.

How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost?

The cost of Coolsculpting varies on many different factors, like the number of areas being treated, your unique condition, and your geographical location. Generally though, you can expect to pay $400 for a single Coolsculpting session. It’s best to consult with our office to get an exact cost breakdown for your treatment or a treatment package which is a cost effective way to save money. For most patients the number of areas vary for most patients and will be determined with an assessment during your consultation.

Can I Combine Coolsculpting With Other Procedures?

Combining Coolsculpting with other treatments can be a game-changer in your aesthetic journey. Here’s why:

  1. Enhanced Results: While Coolsculpting targets and eliminates fat cells, combining it with skin tightening procedures can offer a more refined and sculpted appearance. This dual approach ensures not only the reduction of fat but also a firmer, more youthful skin texture.
  2. Time Efficiency: By pairing Coolsculpting with other treatments, you can address multiple concerns in fewer visits. This means less downtime and faster results, getting you closer to your aesthetic goals in a shorter time frame.
  3. Holistic Approach: Combining treatments allows for a more comprehensive approach to body contouring. For instance, while Coolsculpting addresses stubborn fat pockets, other treatments can target cellulite, skin laxity, or uneven skin tone. This holistic strategy ensures every aspect of your concern is addressed, leaving no stone unturned.
  4. Cost-Effective: In some cases, bundling procedures can be more cost-effective in the long run. By addressing multiple concerns simultaneously, you might save on individual treatment costs and any associated downtime.

Discuss with your provider to tailor a treatment plan that synergizes Coolsculpting with other procedures, ensuring you achieve the best possible results.

We have found that Exilis, a radiofrequency and ultrasound treatment, is a great compliment to Coolsculpting and can synergize in a lot of different ways, depending on your unique goals. Similarly, if you would like to address cellulite, Cellutone could also be an impactful combination option.
