WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is a procedure designed for those who have unwanted fat in specifically targeted areas. It is not a weight-loss solution if you are heavily overweight. CoolSculpting works best if you have noticeable bulges in certain areas that you’d like to get rid of. Think of it as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO COOLSCULPTING?
Some common side effects can be expected following the CoolSculpting treatment, but they are likely to subside over a few days. Some patients experience pulling and strong cold sensations, like stinging, aching, pinching, or cramps. These are all common reactions that usually become subdued as the target area becomes numb.
After each session, you can eventually show side effects that include bruising, swelling, redness, blanching, tingling, stinging, and overall tenderness of the skin. But, likewise, these side effects are short-term and expected to fade within the first week.
As with any treatment, rare side effects can occur, especially if you have undisclosed conditions. So before going through the procedure, speak to your doctor to find out if the treatment is right for you.
IS COOLSCULPTING SAFE?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved procedure and has a well-established safety and efficacy profile. It is the leading non-invasive fat-reduction treatment all over the world. CoolSculpting mechanisms are controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures. The machine sensors detect automatically if the skin is getting too cold, and shut down the whole system automatically to avoid any damage.
HOW LONG DOES THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE TAKES?
Total time will depend on the target area or how many areas of fat are frozen per session. Overall, treatment usually lasts for up to an hour. And you can always schedule follow-up sessions to freeze more fat.
The best thing about CoolSculping is that you can return to your routine - even to exercising - straight away if you like. There is no downtime necessary after the procedure. Since it’s a non-invasive fat reduction treatment, there are no incisions that would put you on the sidelines.
