CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared body sculpting treatment that targets and freezes your unwanted fat cells. The team at Cosmetic Solutions can use CoolSculpting treatments to remove stubborn fat and trouble spots from your chin to your knees.*

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting sends controlled cooling treatments directly to your trouble spots. As your fat cells freeze, their cellular integrity is destroyed, which kills the cells and allows your body to remove them through the lymphatic system.

You’ll notice that you become slimmer in the weeks following your treatment as your body flushes out the destroyed fat cells. As long as you maintain your weight, the results are permanent, leaving you with a slim and toned silhouette.

CoolSculpting is safe. Although the equipment targets your subdermal fat, the delivery device includes a sensor to ensure the surface of your skin doesn’t get too cold.

What should I expect during a CoolSculpting session?

CoolSculpting treatments take 30-60 minutes, and you can have multiple body areas treated during the same session. Following your initial consultation, your provider attaches the CoolSculpting delivery device to your trouble spots.

You may experience an intense cooling sensation when your treatment starts, but it will subside as your skin becomes numb. In addition to the cooling treatment, the device also suctions your skin to ensure even delivery and skin toning effects. You may feel a slight pressure on your skin from this aspect of treatment.

You don’t need any downtime to recover from CoolSculpting. When your treatment is over, you can get right back to your regular daily activities. You may even be able to have your treatment during your lunch break.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you’re within a few pounds of your target weight, but are struggling to get rid of a trouble spot like a double chin, belly pouch, or love handles, CoolSculpting could be right for you. It’s suitable for all skin types and colors and is equally effective on men and women.

  • Double chins
