CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that primarily targets your thighs, lower back, belly, and sides. This alternative to liposuction uses a cooling technique called cryolipolysis. The excess fat you can’t get rid of through diet and exercise is frozen until it dies.

This procedure is effective because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the other cells around it. The CoolSculpting technology safely delivers the exact temperature needed to get rid of the fat cells underneath the skin without much discomfort or downtime.

The results are not immediate, but show up slowly. Expect to see full results around three months after treatment. Although the results take time to appear, after the procedure is complete, the fat cells never come back.

What are the side effects of CoolSculpting?

Since CoolSculpting is not a surgical procedure, the only side effects are temporary red blotching and bruising, as well as some numbness or pain that usually diminishes within two weeks of treatment. When it comes to non-invasive body contouring, CoolSculpting is safe, efficient, and has a high satisfaction rate.

Who should schedule a CoolSculpting appointment?

CoolSculpting is best for those with a healthy weight. If you are obese, this procedure may not be as effective. For those who qualify, CoolSculpting is an excellent alternative to liposuction, especially if you have a condition that prevents or can complicate surgery.

Dr. M. Mercedes Sayago develops a customized treatment plan to take care of your problem areas. She devises an individualized plan for your body, budget, and overall goals. You may require more than one session for optimal results. However, it’s best not to abandon healthy eating and exercise because they're still the best way to get rid of excess body fat.
