Cool Sculpting FAQ


Cool Sculpting is the popular fat reduction treatment that millions of men and women are using as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Learn more about the fat freezing treatment and discover if Cool Sculpting is right for you by reading the answers to the most comonly asked Cool Sculpting questions.

What is fat freezing?

Fat freezing, or CoolSculpting, is a fat reduction treatment using the advanced cooling technology of Cryolipolysis. It is a non-invasive treatment used to eliminate stubborn fat cells that comonly resist diet and exercise by freezing them to death.

Can you freeze your own fat at home?

Does CoolSculpting at homework? No, it does not. You cannot freeze fat on your own at home. In fact, CoolSculpting at home is dangerous and ineffective. Ice packs cannot reduce belly fat or other fat deposits in the body. Placing ice packs on your skin does not freeze fat, but it can freeze your skin leading to thermal injury or frostbite. CoolSculpting is best left to the professionals.

Is CoolSculpting a weight loss treatment?

No, CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. Traditional weight loss treatments only shrink fat cells, leaving them capable of re-expanding if weight is gained. CoolSculpting entirely eliminates the fat cells, leaving it unable to re-expand or re-grow in the future.

Does CoolSculpting treat obesity?

No, CoolSculpting does not treat obesity. It is not a weight-loss treatment and is instead a fat reduction treatment for healthy, active adults.

Is CoolSculpting right for me?

Unfortunately, CoolSculpting is not for everyone. The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is an active, healthy adult who eats a balanced diet and exercises regularly but still struggles with stubborn fat deposits.

Do you actually lose weight with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment. Fat is targeted and frozen, removing it from the body entirely. Weeks afterward, the body naturally gathers and disposes of the dead cells resulting in a natural-looking fat reduction.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is ideal for healthy women and men who desire an alternative to liposuction for spot-reducing stubborn bulges that resist exercise and diet. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. The most effective way to determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting is to schedule a free consultation with SKINNEY Medspa, the premier CoolSculpting NYC provider.

Can CoolSculpting Treat Any area of the body with unwanted fat?

Cool Sculpting can target visible bulges from your chin to your knees. Your CoolSculpting specialist will select an applicator that conforms to the specific dimensions of your treatment area. Currently, the CoolSculpting treatment is FDA cleared to reduce fat from the abdomen (belly fat,) flanks (love handles,) thighs, upper arms, armpits (bra bulge,) chest (moobs,) the back, underneath the buttocks (banana roll,) and the submental region (double chins.)

How long is the CoolSculpting Treatment?

Nicknamed “lunchtime lipo,” the CoolSculpting treatment can be performed in as little as 35 minutes using the new line of applicators from the CoolAdvantage collection. Some areas may require more time. SKINNEY Medspa offers patients Dual Sculpting: the use of two CoolSculpting machines simultaneously so you receive double the treatment coverage in half the time.

After a CoolSculpting treatment, where does the fat go?

During a CoolSculpting treatment fat cells are frozen to the point of destruction. This triggers the lymphatic system to collect and metabolize the destroyed fat cells in a process known as cryolipolysis. Over the span of several weeks, the frozen fat cells are processed out of the body in the form of waste.

Can the fat come back? Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

Because CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells and does not shrink them, they cannot grow back. This is substantiated in scientific research published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. According to the longitudinal study that followed CoolSculpting patients over the span of 9 years “local reductions in fat have significant longevity in these subjects and suggest that results from cryolipolysis may be very long-lasting.”

Does Fat Freezing with CoolSculpting Hurt?

CoolSculpting is considered a relatively painless treatment. During the first few minutes, patients experience a tugging sensation and a feeling of intense cold at the treatment site. This area quickly becomes numb, and patients are able to sit back and relax for the rest of the treatment. Afterward, the technician massages the treated area for two minutes. Some patients find this part a bit uncomfortable.

Is CoolSculpting Dangerous?

CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA. In addition, it is also scientifically proven safe and effective for reducing fat. Adverse effects are rare. The best way to ensure you have a safe experience with fat freezing is by selecting a reputable medical spa to administer CoolSculpting.

Does CoolSculpting Treat the Arms?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to treat pesky upper arm fat. The CoolPetite applicator allows technicians to treat the upper arm region and reduce unwanted arm jiggling or “bingo wings.”

Will CoolSculpting Reduce my Belly Pooch?

CoolSculpting is the most effective non-invasive way to tackle hard-to-lose- belly fat. People love fat freezing because it provides a virtually painless, non-surgical way to treat unwanted belly fat. Treatments effectively freeze and eliminate fat cells in the lower stomach. Furthermore, consistent treatments will contour a slim, sexy abdomen.

Is CoolSculpting FDA-Cleared to Reduce Double Chins?

Yes, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to reduce double chins. Fat that collects in the submental region is notorious for resisting diet and exercise efforts. Since it is so challenging to lose double chins or turkey necks, CoolSculpting chin and neck treatments are among the most popular areas for fat freezing. CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fat and contours the chin and neck area.

How much does Cool Sculpting cost?

Cool Sculpting cost depends on several factors including treatment area and the number of cooling cycles needed to achieve the desired amount of fat reduction.
