Top 5 Questions About CoolSculpting®Summer is just around the corner, which means it is almost time to slip into a bathing suit. While many are eager to embrace the warm summer weather, it can be stressful for people who are insecure about certain regions of the body. Fortunately, CoolSculpting®, a cutting-edge, non-invasive procedure that smooths and contours problem areas on the body is available to ensure you feel confident this season.

Here are the five questions asked most frequently by CoolSculpting® patients:

  1. How does CoolSculpting work? This procedure gently reduces and eliminates fat cells in targeted areas by using patented cooling technology. When fat cells are exposed to cooling, it triggers a natural process of removal and over time reduces the thickness of the fat layer in the area.
  2. Is CoolSculpting safe? Yes. CoolSculpting has been approved by the F.D.A. in the United States, and has been widely used in Europe, Asia and Canada since 2009. Clinical studies for the procedure began in 2006, and more than 140,000 treatments have been performed worldwide.
  3. What area does CoolSculpting treat? CoolScultping is available in the United States for fat reduction in the flank region, commonly known as “love handles.”
  4. When will I see results? Noticeable results are typically seen two to four months after treatment, and will continue to improve for up to six months following the procedure. While the results seen are not as rapid as those achieved through liposuction, CoolSculpting patients can avoid the risks and lengthy recovery times associated with more invasive procedures.
  5. Are there risks or side effects? CoolSculpting has considerably fewer risks than other fat reduction procedures. CoolSculpting is considered safe for most patients, although there are certain risks associated with any kind of treatment. Some of these risks may include redness, bruising and reduced sensation in the treated area. These side effects are considered normal and usually go away on their own within a few days after treatment.
