CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting uses a technology known as cryolipolysis to literally freeze away unwanted fat. The cold energy penetrates the surface of your skin to disrupt fat cells that lie beneath. The fat cells reach a temperature at which they can no longer survive and are then eliminated from your body using your natural waste removal systems.

The procedure requires no incisions or injections. You don’t even need anesthetics. Patients are able to return to activity right after CoolSculpting.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting provides proven, noticeable results in areas that commonly hold onto fat. These areas include:

  • Thighs
  • Bra and back fat
  • Love handles
  • Belly pooches
  • Underside of the buttocks
  • Under the chin
  • Upper arms

Your provider at Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology discusses your aesthetic goals with you and helps you achieve a body you’re proud to show off.

CoolSculpting technology can also help tighten up lax skin contributing to your double chin. The FDA has cleared CoolSculpting to tighten lax tissue.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

You may be satisfied with the effects of just one CoolSculpting session, but many people choose to have multiple treatments to achieve their goals. Your provider develops a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the results you desire while respecting your budget. 

Do CoolSculpting treatments hurt?

Most people tolerate body sculpting with CoolSculpting quite well. At the onset of a session, you do feel intense cold, and then the skin goes numb as the treatment goes to work. You can relax during the session.

How long do the effects of CoolSculpting last?

CoolSculpting provides permanent fat loss. It destroys fat cells forever; they cannot re-plump or regenerate. If you do gain notable weight, however, nontreated cells can plump up. Stick with a healthy diet and active lifestyle to preserve your results.

When will I see results from CoolSculpting sessions?

CoolSculpting results are evident about three weeks following treatment. The most obvious results are evident in about two months following a session; your body needs the time to flush out the destroyed fat cells. The fat-flushing process continues for about six months following treatment.
