Is CoolSculpting Right for You?

So many people are looking for the best way to eliminate fat. For some, it’s about losing stubborn fat in a particular area of their body. For others, it’s about getting healthy and fit again.

CoolSculpting is one of the most popular options for people who want to get rid of that extra fat they can’t seem to shake no matter how hard they try. And if you’re considering CoolSculpting as an option, there are a few things you should know before making your decision, including how it works and the known benefits. 

In this article, we cover everything you need to know to determine if CoolSculpting is the right choice for you.


What Is CoolSculpting?

First and foremost, you’ll need to know about the procedure as a whole. 

CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a way of freezing stubborn fat cells in your body. By using controlled cooling technology, the fat cells are eliminated and removed from your body through natural means.

The reason why this works so well is because of how it attacks those stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away no matter what else you do. CoolSculpting freezes them to temperatures as low as -11 degrees Celsius, which helps eliminate fat cells without affecting the other tissues in the area where it’s done. CoolSculpting takes advantage of something called “apoptosis,” where fat cells die and are removed by the body naturally.

CoolSculpting is considered a safe option and has been FDA-approved for treating stubborn fat around areas like the stomach, buttocks, flanks (love handles), thighs, bra line, or underneath the chin.


How Much Does It Cost?

As with any cosmetic procedure, you’ll find all sorts of price ranges around the web. This is because CoolSculpting isn’t a one size fits all solution, and each patient has different needs that range from body parts to be treated as well as how much fat they desire to get rid of.

The cost of CoolSculpting can depend on many things, including what area(s) you want to treat, if other areas are being treated at the same time, how many treatments you need, and provider costs.

Provider costs for CoolSculpting often depend on the experience level of the  Certified CoolSculpting Specialist as well as your geographical location since some may charge more or less in certain areas of the country.


Benefits of CoolSculpting

Aside from just costs, you’ll also want to know about the benefits of CoolSculpting. 

First, because this is a non-invasive procedure, there are fewer risks involved with CoolSculpting (unlike surgeries which can cause problems like infections or damage to the skin).

CoolSculpting is also generally more comfortable than other procedures because it doesn’t require anesthesia or incisions, making the overall process easier on the patient overall.

The main thing that makes CoolSculpting an attractive option for patients is how quickly you see results. Typically, you can expect to see the first results just a few weeks after your treatment session and will continue seeing changes until most of the fat cells have been removed from your body.

How Do I Know if CoolSculpting Is Right For Me?

CoolSculpting isn’t for everyone, and you should always consult with a medical professional before moving forward. The good news is that if you are a healthy adult, then you can generally become a candidate for CoolSculpting as long as there aren’t any underlying health concerns. 

If you have any pre-existing conditions, it’s important to first schedule a consultation with your  Certified CoolSculpting Specialist to see if CoolSculpting is appropriate for you and your goals. Not everyone will be a good fit for this procedure.
