CoolSculpting FAQ

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Not everyone is a good fit for CoolSculpting. It is not a weight loss procedure but rather a means to rid your body of unwanted fat in specific areas.

Both men and women are a good fit for CoolSculpting if you have areas of excess fat beneath the skin. This means that CoolSculpting cannot rid your body of visceral fat (or fat around your organs).

If you want to ensure CoolSculpting is a good fit for you, check with your care provider through a CoolSculpting consultation.

Can men benefit from CoolSculpting?

Yes. Both men and women find great results with Coolsculpting.

Depending on the area treated, you’ll find a stronger benefit than other areas.

Below are some examples of CoolSculpting for men in different areas of the body, including the back, under the chin, and the abdominal area.

When is the best time of the year to get a CoolSculpting treatment?

If you want to look summer-ready after your CoolSculpting treatments, the spring, fall and winter are the best times to get this done.

Because CoolSculpting can take weeks to a few months to see the full effects, planning ahead and receiving treatment prior to when you want to have the results by is crucial.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

CoolSculpting is not a painful procedure. Some may feel discomfort, slight pinching or pulling sensation during treatment, and mild aching around the treated area.

How many CoolSculpting treatments are needed to see optimal results?

This depends on the person and the desired results.

Because each body is different, patients react differently to each treatment. Typically, visible results are seen up to three months following the first treatment, but desired results may take additional treatments and time depending on the amount of fat that needs to be discarded to achieve them.

How long do CoolSculpting results last for?

CoolSculpting results often motivate individuals to keep working toward their ideal body. As with any fat loss treatment, if you stop any preventative or active methods to reduce fat build-up, the results of CoolSculpting will fade.

For that reason, we always encourage our patients to continue with your exercise and good eating habits as a way to maintain CoolSculpting results for the long-term.
