Coolsculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a popular, FDA-cleared body-contouring treatment that eliminates stubborn pockets of fat that resist weight loss. Using controlled-cooling technology, CoolSculpting destroys fat without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime for recovery.

Whether you want to tighten your waistline or finally say goodbye to a double chin, CoolSculpting can help you achieve the lean and toned body of your dreams.

How does CoolSculpting work?

Sometimes fat lingers in your body despite your best efforts to lose it. Even if you experience weight loss with diet and exercise, your fat cells shrink but never completely disappear. This can lead to fat deposits in areas that are notoriously difficult to sculpt, such as love handles.

CoolSculpting takes advantage of the fact that your fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues in your body. The treatment targets fat cells with specialized applicators, destroying fat without harming healthy tissue.

After your fat cells freeze and die, your body’s immune system flushes them out over the course of several weeks. As this occurs, you see your newly contoured body emerge.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting may be right for you if you want to lose a mild to moderate amount of excess fat. It’s not a treatment for obesity. If you want to lose a significant amount of weight, the team at Healthy Outcomes AZ can suggest other weight-loss treatments.

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved to reduce fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Back fat
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin   

What should I expect from a CoolSculpting procedure?

First, a team member at Healthy Outcomes AZ meets with you to discuss your concerns and beauty goals during an initial consultation. If you decide to pursue CoolSculpting, they will explain how to prepare, including:

  • Avoiding anti-inflammatory medications one week beforehand
  • Not making any changes to your diet
  • Maintaining your normal routine

During the procedure, your provider at Healthy Outcomes AZ applies a gel pad and specialized applicator to the treatment area while you relax in a comfortable chair. The exact amount of time depends on the treatment area, but most CoolSculpting sessions take 35-60 minutes.

The procedure isn’t painful, but you may feel a chill from the cooling technology. This sensation often fades as your skin becomes numb after 5-10 minutes. Afterward, you’re free to return to work or normal activities right away.
