Considering Coolsculpting? Here Is What You Need to Know

Countless people struggle with weight loss, and unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Getting into shape is a unique, personal journey. If you have tried dieting and rigorous exercise but cannot seem to lose the fat deposits on your body, you may want to consider Coolsculpting®. This treatment is a noninvasive, FDA-approved procedure that literally freezes fat cells away.



Ready to learn more? We are breaking down six key things you should know about Coolsculpting.


What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is the process of using cooling technology to isolate and destroy fat cells in the body. Once frozen, the body will naturally eliminate the crystallized cells, permanently removing the fat deposits within the targeted area.


Coolsculpting is one of the few noninvasive medical procedures aimed at fat loss to receive FDA approval. The treatment is an attractive option for many people, as it is virtually painless. In fact, most patients find it to be incredibly comfortable. There are also very few adverse reactions associated with Coolsculpting. In rare cases, patients may develop a condition called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. However, this is a treatable cosmetic issue and not a serious medical concern.


Six Facts to Know About Coolsculpting

If you are interested in the Coolsculpting procedure, keep the following key facts in mind:


1. Coolsculpting is a Relatively Quick Procedure

Coolsculpting is unique in that it produces noticeable results without the need for long, time-consuming operations. A typical session takes about 35 minutes, which is a breeze compared to most cosmetic procedures.


2. Do Not Expect Immediate Results

Coolsculpting results are not immediate, but they are permanent. Most patients notice their best results in approximately three to four months, while some see changes even earlier. The best part? Treated fat deposits will not return.


3. The Procedure is Nonsurgical & Noninvasive

Unlike liposuction and other fat-loss treatments, Coolsculpting is noninvasive and non-surgical. Plus, it does not require the use of any medications before or after treatment.


4. Coolsculpting Is Not a Weight-Loss Treatment

Coolsculpting can help you look more trimmed and toned; however, it is not a weight loss solution. Rather, it is designed to permanently remove fat cells that do not improve with dieting and exercise.


5. It Is Not Right for Everyone

Most people can undergo Coolsculpting treatments safely. However, the procedure is not safe for individuals with cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.


6. Coolsculpting Provides Lasting Results

Coolsculpting is one of the most effective treatments for permanently eliminating fat cells.


What Results Can I Expect?

Coolsculpting patients will generally see a 20 to 25 percent reduction of fat cells in the treated area. However, it may take more than one treatment to reach your desired results.


How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost?

Because it is a cosmetic procedure, health insurance carriers will not cover the cost of Coolsculpting. Generally, treatment plans range from $2,000 to $4,000, depending on your unique needs. For example, treating one small area will be less expensive than treating several larger areas.
