CoolSculpting Q&A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a one-of-a-kind fat-reducing treatment that targets fat deposits with freezing cold temperatures. When you freeze fat in this way, it causes fat cells to die. In the months following your treatment, your lymphatic system naturally flushes out the dead cells, leaving you with a slimmer, more contoured physique in targeted areas. 

CoolSculpting is non-surgical and requires no downtime after the procedure. You won't see results right away; it takes around four to twelve weeks to see the reduction in the reduction in your targeted body fat. However, these results are permanent as long as you don’t gain a lot of weight and expand the remaining fat cells in the area. 

The treatment is not painful and doesn’t require anesthesia. The freezing temperatures can cause some numbness, and you might also feel sensations of tugging on your skin. After you finish the procedure, you can go home or resume work, daily errands, or activities safely. 

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting may be a fat-freezing treatment, but you won’t see any significant results if your goal is weight loss. The treatment specifically targets and reduces hard-to-lose fat deposits that resist your attempts at weight loss and toning. 

Before CoolSculpting or any other noninvasive treatment, you should consult with the team at Visage at the Vein Clinic to make sure it’s a good fit. Good candidates for CoolSculpting:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Are committed to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle
  • Have pinchable fat bulges
  • Do not want to undergo liposuction surgery, or aren’t candidates
  • Can avoid aspirin and other blood-thinning medications leading up to the procedure

After you discuss your treatment goals, the Visage at the Vein Clinic team takes pictures for treatment planning that also serve as your “before” images. These help you see your fat reduction, which is typically between 20% and 80% of the targeted fat. 

Can I target any area of my body with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can target nearly any area of fat, large or small. Visage at the Vein Clinic offers DualSculpting, a form of CoolSculpting that uses two machines to efficiently target large areas or multiple areas at a time. 

It’s up to you to choose which areas to target based on your body shape and composition, but some of the most commonly targeted areas are:

  • Double chin
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Back fat
  • Fat under the breasts
  • Fat under the buttocks

The procedure takes 1-3 hours, and you might need to come in for multiple sessions for certain areas. 

If you struggle with persistent fat deposits, schedule your CoolSculpting consultation by phone or book online at Visage at the Vein Clinic today.
