CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the world’s leading treatment for reducing stubborn body fat without surgery, needles, or scars. This noninvasive, FDA-cleared technology freezes and eliminates fat cells, leaving you with the sculpted figure you desire.

When you lose weight with diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink but never completely disappear. CoolSculpting technology takes advantage of the fact that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells in your body, allowing the device to target and destroy stubborn fat once and for all.

How does CoolSculpting reduce fat?

The CoolSculpting device delivers controlled cooling energy, reducing the temperature of the treatment area enough to kill fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. In the weeks following treatment, your body naturally flushes out the dead fat cells.

Once your body eliminates the fat cells, they’re gone for good! This provides gradual fat reduction without the telltale scars, specialized compression garments, or downtime for recovery associated with plastic surgery or liposuction.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to reduce stubborn pockets of fat in the most common problem areas. The team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics uses CoolSculpting to treat many parts of the body, including:

  • Submental fat (double chin)
  • Bra bulges and back fat
  • Abdomen and flanks (love handles)
  • Upper arms and thighs
  • Beneath the buttocks (banana roll)

Though it’s effective at reducing fat, CoolSculpting isn’t a weight-loss treatment. If you’re far above your ideal body weight, it may not be the right time for CoolSculpting.

What happens during a CoolSculpting body contouring treatment?

First, the team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics creates an individualized treatment plan based on your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.

During CoolSculpting treatment, you relax in a comfortable chair while your provider at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics applies the applicators to the treatment area.

The length of the procedure depends on the number of areas being treated, but most CoolSculpting sessions last 35-60 minutes. Many men and women like to read, check emails, or nap during this time.

Though CoolSculpting isn’t painful, you may experience some minor discomfort from the cold temperature. This shouldn’t last more than a few minutes. Afterward, you’re free to go about your day without any downtime for recovery.

You should notice fat reduction as quickly as three weeks after treatment, with optimal results appearing in about two months.
