CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive body contouring treatment. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to freeze your subdermal fat, thus destroying its cellular integrity so your body can process and remove it.

Over 6 million people have had CoolSculpting treatments in the United States. The procedure is safe, and all clinicians who offer CoolSculpting are required to participate in comprehensive training programs. CoolSculpting treatments are only performed in medical offices under the supervision of a licensed medical professional.

Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

If you’re in general good health and are close to your ideal body weight but struggling with a pocket of stubborn fat on a trouble spot like your stomach, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to remove fat from:

  • Double chin (submental area)
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back, including bra fat
  • Under the buttocks
  • Upper arms


CoolSculpting treatments are suitable for adult men and women of all ethnicities.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting treatments use advanced technology to freeze and crystallize your unwanted subdermal fat. This process effectively kills your fat cells, and then over the following weeks, your body naturally processes and removes the dead cells.

It may take a few weeks to see the results of your CoolSculpting treatments, but since the procedure eliminates your fat cells, the results are long-term as long as you maintain a healthy body weight.*

What Should I Expect During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

Your CoolSculpting treatment begins with a thorough consultation where you and your medical provider study your body and discuss body contouring and toning from a holistic point of view before deciding on the best locations for your CoolSculpting fat removal treatment.

The CoolSculpting equipment includes several different applicators to allow a perfect fit with your body, no matter what trouble spot you decide to treat. Your doctor applies a gel pad to your targeted body part and attaches the applicator.

Then for 30-60 minutes, you relax as the CoolSculpting equipment freezes your fat. You will feel a cooling sensation or tingling. However, the applicators have sensors that monitor your skin temperature to protect your skin throughout your treatment.

CoolSculpting is noninvasive, so you don’t have to take any time off after your treatment and can return to your regular activities right away.
