CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-reduction procedure sought after by many people looking to lose fat and boost their self-esteem. It's a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that eliminates fat and the need for downtime.

How does CoolSculpting work?

Sometimes, building healthy daily habits isn't enough to eliminate stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction treatment that targets unwanted fat, prompting noticeable and lasting results.

The procedure involves using a hand-held device and controlled cooling techniques to target fat cells underneath the skin. Cold temperatures crystallize and kill fat cells.

The innovative technology used for CoolSculpting leaves the skin unaffected, offering seamless results. CoolSculpting targets several areas of the body prone to stubborn fat, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks or sides
  • Double chin
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Upper arms

Book a consultation with Dr. McGuiness to discuss your desired outcomes.

What does a CoolSculpting procedure look like?

During your CoolSculpting appointment, Dr. McGuiness reviews and marks the treatment areas. Next, he places a protective gel pad on the skin before pinching excess fat into the CoolSculpting device. The targeted area becomes numb from the cold, and you can relax throughout the process, which takes about an hour.

You won't feel any pain except slight pressure from the first few minutes of treatment. After your procedure, you'll be allowed to assume daily activities right away.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting works for both men and women. While it's not designed for significant weight loss, it treats the stubborn fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. Therefore, those who exercise and maintain a healthy diet are ideal candidates.

CoolSculpting may not be effective for those who are overweight or obese, and Dr. McGuiness may recommend diet and exercise before opting for a CoolSculpting treatment. However, once you're within 20-30 pounds of your ideal weight, CoolSculpting may be the appropriate weight-loss option.

Since CoolSculpting also involves intensely cold temperatures, Dr. McGuiness may advise against the procedure if you suffer from certain conditions or diseases. Schedule your initial consultation to discuss your candidacy with Dr. McGuiness and the team at McGuiness Dermatology.
