What You Should Know About CoolSculpting
It’s important to remember that CoolSculpting (and its specialized devices like CoolMini® and CoolSmooth®) is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and its effectiveness depends on several factors. Before booking an appointment, you should keep the following in mind:
- CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment; it’s designed for individuals who are already close to their ideal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. If you are significantly overweight or have underlying health issues, CoolSculpting may not be suitable for you.
- CoolSculpting is most effective for localized fat reduction in trouble spots across the body. Popular treatment areas for CoolSculpting include the chin, stomach, and love handles.
- CoolSculpting’s results are not immediate. It can take several weeks to see the full effects of your treatment as your body naturally eliminates the treated fat cells. If you’re looking for instant results, this might not be the right choice.
- CoolSculpting often requires multiple treatments to achieve the desired results—but it can reduce the fat cells in the treatment area by up to 25% after each session. Learn more about the number of sessions you can expect in our related blog post.
