Is Coolsculpting Right for Me?

This non-invasive treatment could eliminate those stubborn areas of fat.

What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is a simple, FDA-cleared treatment that freezes fat cells to improve certain areas of the body that don’t respond to diet and exercise alone. This procedure provides a painless, safe and non-invasive solution for getting rid of unwanted fat without downtime.

As the cooling technology penetrates certain areas of the body it targets, freezes and destroys fat cells. Over time, the destroyed fat cells are then absorbed by the body, which leaves you with a smoother appearance.

How long does the treatment take?

Coolsculpting treatment takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes, depending on what area or areas you wish to treat. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals and the results you are looking to achieve with Coolsculpting so we can then create a customized treatment plan that works best for you. From there, our Warrenton, VA, CoolSculpting Specialists will let you know how long your treatment sessions will be. Most patients also benefit from multiple treatment sessions over the course of several months.

Coolsculpting is easy. Most patients choose to watch a movie, read a book or even take a quick nap during their treatment. Since it’s non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia, you can enjoy a little R&R while also improving your appearance.

When will I see results?

It will take some time for the body to reabsorb the destroyed fat cells. You may start to see results as early as 3 weeks after treatment; however, most patients see the most visible changes after 4-6 months.

Who is a good candidate for Coolsculpting?

It’s important that patients understand that Coolsculpting is not a type of weight loss surgery and it won’t be able to help those who are severely overweight or obese. A good candidate for Coolsculpting treatment will be someone who is within their target weight but wants to target certain areas of stubborn fat. If you want to reduce the appearance of stomach fat, bulging thighs or love handles, then Coolsculpting may be the best option for you.
