Do you have questions about CoolSculpting? We’re sharing answers to several top questions below. If you don’t see an answer to your question on our list or if you need personalized advice, reach out to our medical spa by calling (305) 587-9183.

1. Is CoolSculpting Painful?

CoolSculpting involves freezing the cells in the treatment area, but most patients don’t find it uncomfortable. At first, people report a momentary feeling of intense cold. This sensation usually fades within a few minutes as the skin becomes numb.

2. How Many CoolSculpting Treatments Will I Need?

If you love the convenience of a one-and-done body shaping option, CoolSculpting is the treatment for you. Patients enjoy results after their very first session, and many people won’t need another one. However, you may choose to schedule a follow-up CoolSculpting treatment for additional fat loss if desired.

3. What Areas of the Body Does CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting is a versatile, head-to-toe treatment option. We can effectively treat anywhere you have excess fat with CoolSculpting. We like to say, “If we can pinch it, we can treat it.”

Some of our favorite areas to treat with this procedure include:

  • Under the chin (double chin)
  • Waistline
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Back (bra line bulges)

4. How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

CoolSculpting’s innovative treatment process crystalizes fat cells and destroys them. After treatment, the body removes these fat cells using natural elimination processes. Once fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. Most patients will enjoy a permanent improvement in the shape and contours of areas treated with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting doesn’t stop weight gain. We encourage patients to remain at a stable weight if possible.

5. Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting in Key West?

The best way to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you is to schedule a consultation with a member of our team. We can help you decide if you’re well-qualified and whether CoolSculpting will help you achieve your goals.

Typically, good candidates for CoolSculpting have isolated pockets of unwanted fat. They are within 20 to 30 pounds of their ideal weight and in good health.

6. Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting works. If you’re worried this treatment sounds too good to be true, check the data:

  • More than 6 million people worldwide have had treatments.
  • An analysis of 19 studies found an average fat loss of 15 to 30%.
  • More than 70 peer-reviewed publications have found CoolSculpting to be safe with minor side effects.

7. When Will I See Results After CoolSculpting?

Patience is hard, but with CoolSculpting, it is worth the wait. It takes time for the body to process and eliminate treated fat cells after CoolSculpting. You’ll gradually start to look slimmer, starting within a few weeks of your treatment. Full results are typically visible within four months of your appointment.
