CoolSculpting Q & A

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting gets rid of fat cells without requiring surgery or any invasive procedures. This revolutionary technology freezes fat cells by applying topical adapters to your skin. As fat cells are frozen and start to crystallize, their chemical makeup begins to break down. 

Over the following weeks, your body naturally flushes out the broken down fat particles. Once the targeted fat is gone, it’s gone for good (unless you gain weight in the future). Usually, it’s best to schedule a CoolSculpting treatment when you’re about 20 pounds from your target weight to achieve the best results. 

The results are lasting and undeniable with CoolSculpting, and over a million treatments have been done worldwide. To determine if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, you should schedule an appointment with Nigro Dermatology Group so they can discuss your options.

What should I expect during a CoolSculpting session?

You should expect to be able to sit back and relax during your CoolSculpting treatment. Some patients bring in their smart tablet to catch up on email or bring their favorite book. 

While the freezing technology of CoolSculpting can be a little uncomfortable at times, most men and women only report feeling a slight tingling sensation during visits. Depending on which areas you’re targeting, your treatment can last anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

Which areas can I have treated with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to treat visible pudges throughout your body. The system can permanently destroy fat in your:

  • Upper arms
  • Flanks and abdomen
  • Thighs and buttocks
  • Upper and lower back

This revolutionary system can even get rid of that unsightly double chin with submental adapters. 

When will I see results with CoolSculpting?

You should start noticing an improvement with CoolSculpting within about 3-4 weeks. However, it can take up to eight weeks to experience the most dramatic results. Your body even continues to flush out broken down fat cells as long as 4-6 months after your treatment. 

If needed, you can always schedule another appointment to improve your fat loss further.
