CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment that targets and eliminates unwanted fat on your body. It's a highly effective FDA-cleared solution for fat that just won't budge. 

CoolSculpting employs a method called cryolipolysis, which essentially means that it freezes your fat cells to destroy them. 

Fat cells are particularly sensitive to freezing temperatures, which is why cryolipolysis is so effective. Once CoolSculpting treatment freezes your fat, it forms a solid mass and then your body's natural healing processes eliminate it over time. 

What areas of the body does CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to treat many different areas of the body, including: 

  • Double chin/under-jaw fat
  • Bra fat
  • Upper arms
  • Flanks/sides
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Back fat
  • Banana roll (under the buttocks)

These areas tend to persistently retain fat despite following a healthy diet and exercise plan, which is why CoolSculpting is such a sought-after treatment option.

What happens during CoolSculpting treatment?

During treatment at Skin Deep Medical Spa, you can read, listen to music, or entertain yourself on your phone. The treatment area directly underneath the CoolSculpting applicator feels cold at first but goes numb very quickly. 

Thanks to this all-natural numbing, there's no need for anesthetic injections or creams. After the treatment, your Skin Deep Medical Spa provider massages the frozen fat to help it dissipate naturally. Total treatment time depends on the size of the area, but smaller areas can take as little as 35 minutes. 

When will I see results after my CoolSculpting treatment?

Your body eliminates the fat steadily, and you’ll generally notice results between 1-3 months post-treatment. It takes up to six months to see the ultimate results of your treatment — up to 25% fat reduction in the treated area. 

How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need?

It depends on your personal goals. After your first treatment, you can assess the results with the Skin Deep Medical Spa team and then discuss whether you need additional treatments. You can expect to eliminate up to 25% of treated fat cells with each successive treatment. 

CoolSculpting is an easy way to remove fat for good, so why not schedule your consultation at Skin Deep Medical Spa now? It’s easy to book using the online tool or by calling either office.
