CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an excellent noninvasive body contouring method to reduce excess fat. Coolsculpting provides a localized reduction of stubborn fat deposits. One treatment usually only takes from around 35 minutes to a few hours.

CoolSculpting can work on different areas of the body, such as:

  • Lower and upper abdomen
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Outer and inner thighs
  • Under the chin
  • Back

If your hard work and efforts of diet and exercise aren’t successful, CoolSculpting can be an effective solution for fat reduction.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting involves cryolipolysis — controlled cooling to target and destroy your subcutaneous fat cells without damaging any of your surrounding skin. CoolSculpting successfully freezes fat cells. Your body’s natural lymphatic system permanently eliminates the damaged fat cells over time following your treatment.

Dr. Owen uses a handheld device called an applicator on the target area. The applicator delivers a controlled cooling through a special cooling and suction technology. He moves the device over your skin as the applicator delivers the controlled cooling through a special cooling and suction technology.

Dr. Owen leaves the device on your skin for a programmed period of time before removing the applicators and massaging the treatment area. Massaging the area is an important part of the process to break up deeper tissue and stimulate your body to start eliminating the unwanted destroyed fat cells. The best part is that you can choose to check email, read, or even take a nap during your treatment.

CoolSculpting involves little to no recovery time and the results are usually noticeable anywhere from one to three months after your treatment. Typically, there’s little to no pain. Some people report a mild pinching or pulling sensation. Multiple treatments might be necessary for the best results.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

You’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting if you’re in good overall health and if you’re close to your ideal weight range. It’s also important you have realistic and clear expectations about your upcoming CoolSculpting procedure.

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure, not a weight loss method.

  • Permanent removal of destroyed fat cells
