CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical body contouring method that freezes away fat cells.* This innovative technique can be an alternative for men and women who have troublesome fatty deposits on the body but aren’t interested in surgery or downtime involved with cosmetic surgery. If you’re considering CoolSculpting®, read on to find out if this non-invasive treatment is right for you.
Q. I’m in the process of losing weight. Can CoolSculpting® help me shed extra pounds?
CoolSculpting® is not a substitute for weight loss. The nonsurgical body contouring procedure is ideally suited for men and women who have already achieved their weight loss goals, but find they haven’t been able to lose localized pockets of fat in certain areas of the body or neck.* If you reach your target weight through a combination of diet and exercise but still have stubborn areas of fat, CoolSculpting® may be right for you.*
Q. I’m in great shape, but my double chin makes me look fat. Can CoolSculpting® be used on the face?
Visible fat can gather under the chin, creating the dreaded double chin. This can be particularly frustrating if you are otherwise in great shape, but have diet and exercise resistant fat that lingers beneath the chin. The CoolMini™ CoolSculpting® applicator is designed specifically for use under the chin area.*
Q. I’ve gotten down to my ideal size but I can’t lose my love handles. Is CoolSculpting® right for me?
The love handles are a popular treatment spot for CoolSculpting®.* It’s unfortunately very common for both men and women to have excess fat along the sides of the waist, even after successful weight loss. CoolSculpting® uses freezing technology to target the fat cells that cause love handles.* The abdomen and inner and outer thighs are other areas where people frequently get CoolSculpting®.*
Q. I’m so self-conscious about my upper arms. Is this a spot CoolSculpting® can treat?
As we age, fat can gather in the upper arms and the skin can sag, causing what some people refer to as batwings. Women are often more affected by this cosmetic concern, and may avoid certain types of clothing in order to conceal their upper arm fat. This area is particularly resistant to diet or exercise, but there is a CoolSculpting® applicator contoured specifically for treating the upper arms.*
Q. I would definitely benefit from body contouring but am concerned about the downtime. How is CoolSculpting® different from liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, whereas CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical treatment that focuses on reducing fat cells without harming surrounding tissue.* As a result, there’s virtually no downtime involved with CoolSculpting®, and you can return to your normal activities immediately following your treatment.*
Q. I’m worried about the fat coming back after CoolSculpting®. What can I do to preserve my results?
CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to freeze fat cells.* Once fat cells are destroyed, the body cannot create new ones. It’s important to maintain a stable, healthy weight after your CoolSculpting® treatment.* CoolSculpting® is not protective against weight gain.*
