6 Questions You May Have About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting treatment with patient

Most of us can relate to having stubborn, unwanted fat in certain areas, despite a healthy diet and exercise routine. Enter CoolSculpting, an effective, non-surgical, fat-reduction alternative that requires no surgery or downtime. And you’ll find it here, performed by the clinical experts at Aesthetic Solutions, who, after performing over 2,000 CoolSculpting treatments, have distinguished themselves from other providers by earning a status tier achievement of Club 1000. So, what are some common CoolSculpting questions?

Commonly Asked CoolSculpting Questions

What is CoolSculpting?

In simple terms, it is the freezing and elimination of small pockets of fat cells (or non-simply called cryolipolysis). The FDA-cleared CoolSculpting® treatment delivers precise, targeted cooling to kill fat cells underneath the skin, without damaging the actual skin or surrounding tissue.

The treated fat cells freeze (crystallize), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes and eliminates these dead cells. The proven-safe procedure offers long term results, because treated fat cells are zapped, killed, and gone for good.

The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical and takes just 35 minutes–aka faster than a lunch-hour mani/pedi. Fitting some “me time” into your schedule no longer needs to be a huge time commitment; in fact, most of our patients go back to their normal day, right after their appointment, without any discomfort.

I’ve seen CoolSculpting in the media, but is it right for me?

If you’re looking for a quick transformation to get Jada Pinkett Smith’s abs, this isn’t the solution for you. But if your healthy lifestyle and exercise efforts have still left you with some stubborn pockets of fat, then come talk to us.

We’ll sit down with you during a consultation, determine the most effective areas for treatment, and prepare you for realistic expectations during and after your procedure. We’ll make sure you’re the right candidate for the treatment or find another body contouring option that could be the right alternative.

CoolSculpting before and after

How effective is CoolSculpting? When do I start seeing results?

This advanced procedure is effective, but it’s not an “easy fix” for obesity or weight loss. Rather, consider this a body contouring technique that treats and removes targeted fat cells in your double chin, thighs, flanks (“love handles”), bra fat, back fat, fat under the buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms.

Men and women within 30 lbs of their ideal weight are good candidates for the procedure, and regardless of where the unwanted fat is carried, the CoolSculpting procedure eliminates those stubborn bulges, for good.

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

CoolSculpting before and after

After I start seeing results, are there any long-term side effects?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. Once those treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

This sounds too good to be true. Is CoolSculpting safe?

No incisions. No downtime.

The science is proven. The technology is proven. More than 5,500 clinical trial patients have been closely studied, and more than 6 million CoolSculpting procedures have been safely performed worldwide. After many years of research, and a procedure based on sound science, it is backed by leading researchers and doctors, and high patient satisfaction is reported throughout.
