Although CoolSculpting treatments reduce fat, they are not designed for people who want to lose a significant amount of weight. Rather, good candidates are in good overall health and want to tone and sculpt specific areas of their bodies where they can’t seem to lose stubborn fat.

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

A pair of Harvard University scientists developed the CoolSculpting technique based on the concept of cryolipolysis, which uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells. CoolSculpting treatments safely kill fat cells because they freeze at higher temperatures without harming skin or other cells. Treated fat cells die and are gradually absorbed by the body’s natural cleansing process. (See animation video.)

A clinical study found that: “Treatment resulted in a normalized fat layer reduction of 20.4% at 2 months and 25.5% at 6 months after treatment.”1

What Happens at a CoolSculpting Consultation?

Women and men interested in CoolSculpting will first have a complimentary consultation with Dr. Guenther or one of our certified practitioners to determine whether the treatment is suited to their individual needs and goals. Although CoolSculpting treatments can reduce fat by as much as 20% to 25% in one area1, patients who want more extensive reduction may be better suited for surgical treatment. In this case, Dr. Guenther may suggest liposuction as a more appropriate treatment path.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

CoolSculpting treatments are performed in the safety of our privately owned plastic surgery office under the direction of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dax Guenther. Because we own 2 CoolSculpting machines, we make treatments of multiple areas twice as fast. This process, sometimes called DualSculpting, allows us to treat 2 areas in 60 minutes instead of 2 hours.

Once the CoolSculpting applicator is placed over the area of fat and turned on, patients may feel tugging, pinching, or numbness at first. The procedure itself involves little discomfort for most patients, who usually liken it to the cold and numbing sensation of using an icepack. Patients often read, use mobile devices, or even nap during the treatment.

What Can I Expect After CoolSculpting?

Because CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical treatment, most patients return to their daily activities immediately afterward. Redness, swelling, bruising and some temporary numbness are typical side effects that fade soon after the procedure.

How Long Does It Take to Start Seeing CoolSculpting Results?

Although you may notice some slimming as early as 3 weeks after the treatment, the results will become more dramatic after 2 months. Fat cells are naturally absorbed and flushed out from your body’s system during the ensuing 4 to 6 months. Destroyed fat cells are gone for good, but remaining fat cells can still expand. A healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and good nutrition will help you enjoy your toned physique for years to come.
