Cool Sculpting, or fat freezing, uses Cryolipolysis to reduce fat cells. It is entirely non-invasive. Treatments eliminate stubborn fat bulges in problem areas that resist diet or exercise by exposing them to a calibrated cooling. This extreme cooling “freezes” the fat cells to death.
Treatments tend to start at $750. However, CoolSculpting cost varies per person. Many factors determine pricing. Also, there are several ways you can save on treatment plans.
CoolSculpting is scientifically proven to be long-lasting. Once the dead fat cells process out of the body, they never grow back. This results in lasting fat reduction. It is important that patients follow a healthy diet and exercise afterward. Gaining weight will obscure CoolSculpting results.
Yes, CoolSculpting works. It is FDA cleared and proven as safe and effective. One study shows that a single cooling session with CoolSculpting reduces fat by 25% at the treatment site.
CoolSculpting is virtually painless. During the first few minutes of the treatment, the patients will experience a tugging sensation and a feeling of intense cold. After that, the treatment area becomes numb, allowing patients to relax and enjoy the remainder of the session. Afterward, the technician massages the treatment area for two minutes. Some people find this uncomfortable.
No, CoolSculpting at home or DIY CoolSculpting never works. You cannot freeze your own fat. Not only is attempting this dangerous, but it is also ineffective. Placing ice packs on the skin will not freeze fat bulges, but it freezes the skin, possibly causing thermal injury or frostbite.
CoolSculpting is not for everyone. It is a fat reduction treatment, not a weight-loss treatment. It is meant for healthy people struggling with stubborn fat in problem zones. The most effective way to determine if this treatment is right for you is by scheduling a consultation with a licensed Cool Sculpting provider in your area.
People usually start seeing CoolSculpting results within 8 to 12 weeks after their cooling session. However, some might see results even sooner. The fat reduction may continue for up to 6 months after the treatment.
Yes, CoolSculpting works on the arms. The FDA cleared a CoolSculpting applicator, the CoolPetite, to treat upper arm fat. It effectively reduces jiggling upper arm fat, known as bat wings or bingo wings.
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It is for fat reduction. Unlike weight loss treatments that just shrink the fat cells, CoolSculpting destroys them. Thanks to Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting helps people achieve noticeable fat loss.
CoolSculpting is FDA cleared. It is also scientifically shown to be safe and effective. Adverse side effects or risks are rare. The only way to entirely safeguard against any risks or side effects is by selecting a reputable provider to administer your cooling sessions.
