How much does the CoolSculpting® procedure cost?
The price for CoolSculpting® procedures is personal and unique to you. Many variables contribute to the cost of your procedure including, particular areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate aesthetic goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, goals, and budget.
How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting® session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Is the CoolSculpting® procedure safe?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over six million CoolSculpting® treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical, permanent, fat reduction.
Are there any side effects?
During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask our trained medical staff if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt a new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting® treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
What happens if I gain weight down the road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting® procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, having had Coolsculpting done does not prevent weight gain. If you do gain weight, you will gain it evenly all over your body.
