CoolSculpting Frequently Asked Questions
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment. It’s an innovative way to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat away with no surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to safely and effectively reduce fat by freezing cells, which are then eliminated naturally by the body. The CoolSculpting process – cryolipolysis – freezes fat cells, causing them to naturally self-destruct through the process of apoptosis. Although fat cells are eliminated and prevented from growing back, other healthy cells are left unaffected by the specific temperature used to target fat. CoolSculpting enables our clients to rid themselves of stubborn fat that is resistant to reduction via other means.
Who can benefit from CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the ideal treatment for those who are looking to eliminate stubborn fat. If you are frustrated by hard-to-lose fat and feel like you could use some help achieving your desired results, CoolSculpting is the perfect solution for you. Our CoolSculpting specialists will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals, while for some people, a customized plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment.
How many treatments are needed to see results?
The number of treatments required is dependent on your desired results and the volume of fat in the area being treated. One CoolSculpting treatment will reduce fat by up to 25% in the treated area. Many people are pleased with the results of just one CoolSculpting treatment, but some people feel that they need more than one treatment to achieve their desired results. During your free consultation, one of our CoolSculpting specialists will provide answers regarding how many treatments you may need and how much fat you may expect to lose in the treated area. We stand behind our work with our Real Results Promise™.
How long does the treatment take?
Prior to your treatment, you will come into New Radiance Cosmetic Centers for a free consultation for with one of our CoolSculpting specialists. Depending on what questions you may have, your consultation will take between 15 and 30 minutes.
The CoolSculpting procedure will take about 35 minutes. Some people may elect to have additional treatments performed. Since CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no downtime. You could schedule a procedure for your lunch break and return to work immediately after. Normal physical activities can be resumed immediately after your CoolSculpting.
Can CoolSculpting tighten loose skin?
CoolSculpting is highly effective for reducing fat – up to 25% per treatment – on the treated area. CoolSculpting may result in some skin tightening in the treated area. However, CoolSculpting is not a skin tightening treatment. To get you the results you desire, New Radiance Cosmetic Centers includes a complimentary Exilis Ultra treatment ($399 value) to tighten loose skin after your CoolSculpting.
Is there any pain or discomfort?
While pain and discomfort are relative and experiences will vary, CoolSculpting involves minimal discomfort, if any. During the procedure, you may feel a mild tingling, throbbing, or pinching sensation. Any such feelings will be short-lived — once the applicator reaches the temperature required to freeze fat cells, the treated area will be numbed.
Can I undergo a CoolSculpting treatment while pregnant?
CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and has helped millions of people eliminate stubborn fat. However, the procedure is not recommended for everyone. Prior to or after a pregnancy, CoolSculpting has no negative impact on women. However, pregnant women are advised not to undergo a CoolSculpting treatment on any part of their body.
