7 FAQ About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive lipo shots treatment. This method uses low temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells. By 2018, millions of people have already tried CoolSculpting. And because of its popularity, we receive many questions from new clients about the procedure and its efficacy. We’ve prepared this blog post to answer those questions.

Here are the answers to 7 of the most common questions we get about CoolSculpting.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is the brand name of a lipo shot method that breaks down fat cells using low temperatures, usually between 30.2 to 39.2 degrees Fahrenheit. The technical term is cryolipolysis, which literally means fat freezing. CoolSculpting crystallizes fat cells, and over time the body’s natural processes eliminate these dead cells.

Are the results permanent?

Yes, the results are permanent. CoolSculpting breaks down the fat cells and the lymphatic system removes them. However, new fat cells are generated when you gain weight. To maximize the results of your treatment, we recommend a healthy diet and regular exercise. 

How long does it take to see results from CoolSculpting?

You will see results as soon as three weeks, and the most dramatic results will appear two to four months following your CoolSculpting treatment. Right after treatment, you could wear compression garments to reduce the swelling and bruising. This also helps the skin retract after the treatment. 

How much fat can you lose with CoolSculpting?

On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. In comparison, liposuction removes 80-90%, but that’s because fat and blood are removed from the body during the procedure. On the other hand,  CoolSculpting allows your body to eliminate fat, which can take time.

Does CoolSculpting tighten loose skin?

No, CoolSculpting is not a skin tightening procedure. It’s a lipo shots  procedure, but some patients report that the region surrounding their stomach gets tighter after treatment. Depending on your circumstances, your doctor may recommend radiofrequency therapy as a skin tightening treatment.

Can you get CoolSculpting when you’re pregnant?

No, we do not recommend CoolSculpting for women who are pregnant. Before attempting CoolSculpting, mothers should wait at least 6 months to recover. They can schedule an appointment with us after they feel well and strong enough.

Will CoolSculpting work for me?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting are within 30-40 lbs of their ideal body weight and have stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates are also healthy, have good skin elasticity, and are seeking a non-surgical lipo shots treatment.

Be well-informed about CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive lipo shots treatment that uses low temperatures to break down and eliminate fat cells. It’s one of the most popular methods for getting rid of stubborn belly fat, and it can produce dramatic results if used correctly. However, there are still many misconceptions about CoolSculpting, so be sure to do your research before you decide to get treated.
