CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat-reduction procedure that helps get rid of stubborn pockets of fat to sculpt your body into your desired shape. Dr. Armstrong uses CoolSculpting to get rid of fat on a number of problem areas, including:

  • Thighs and buttocks
  • Muffin top and belly fat
  • Love handles
  • Back and bra fat
  • Arm fat

 

CoolSculpting can also treat unwanted fat on your chin and neck.

While CoolSculpting can significantly improve the shape of your body, it’s not meant as a tool to help you lose the weight without the work. Ideally, you should be close to your desired weight before starting treatment.

 

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses targeted and controlled cooling energy directed at the fat cells under your skin to freeze and destroy the cells without causing any damage to your skin.

Once the cells are destroyed, your body’s natural processing system removes them from your body.

During your consultation, you will meet with a CoolSculpting expert who will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals.

With different applicators to choose from, your clinician can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results. For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top.

Some practices have multiple CoolSculpting systems and can treat different body areas at the same time. Your physician will provide a clinical recommendation of which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need. The result? The sculpted shape you want.

 

What can I expect during treatment?

During treatment, Dr. Armstrong places the CoolSculpting device on the treatment area, and the cooling mechanism targets your fat. As it works, you may feel a tugging, then intense cool, followed by numbness. Treatment isn’t painful, and most people find it a relaxing time to read a book or listen to music.

Depending on the number of areas of your body being worked on, a session can take 30 minutes. Dr. Armstrong works with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your aesthetic goals.

After treatment, you can go right back to your day, whether back to work or to the gym.

 

When will I see results?

You may notice an improvement in your shape just three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic changes visible around two to three months. But it can take your body up to six months to fully eliminate all the destroyed fat cells. And once your fat cells are gone, they can’t come back.

To help keep your new, sculpted figure, Dr. Armstrong recommends you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. She can sculpt your body into the shape you’ve always wanted, but you need to work at it to keep it.
