About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis is a fat-freezing method that aims to get rid of stubborn fat in specific areas of the body. The temperature at which fat freezes is higher than the temperature at which skin freezes. Therefore, the whole idea of Cryolipolysis is to freeze the fat underneath the skin without harming the skin.

Commonly asked questions about CoolSculpting

1. What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis is a fat-freezing method that aims to get rid of stubborn fat in specific areas of the body. The temperature at which fat freezes is higher than the temperature at which skin freezes. Therefore, the whole idea of Cryolipolysis is to freeze the fat underneath the skin without harming the skin.

3. Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

You may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if:

  • You are in generally good health
  • You are not pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant
  • You are near your target weight
  • You have enough fat to treat
  • You are not interested in Liposuction
  • You have realistic expectations of the results

You may be denied Cryolipolysis if:

  • You do not have enough fat to pinch
  • You are severely obese
  • You are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant
  • You have a severe illness or infection

4. How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is not surgery, and it does not involve needles, which uses the cellular response to cold to break down fatty tissue. Extracting energy from fat layers causes the fat cells to die gradually while leaving surrounding nerves, muscles, and other tissues unaffected. During the months following treatment, the digested fat cells are sent to the lymphatic system to be filtered out as waste.

5. What are the most common areas for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can be used to reduce fat in many areas, including:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper/lower abdomen
  • Hips (or love handles)
  • Arms
  • Chin
  • Bra and back fat
  • Underneath the buttocks

6. How is CoolSculpting performed?

A gel pad and applicator will be put on your specified treatment site. The applicator provides controlled cooling into the targeted fat. A handheld device with applicators similar to the nozzles of a vacuum cleaner will then be moved over your skin while administering suction and cooling technology.

If you are getting multiple areas treated, some clinics may have several machines that allow them to treat various areas in one visit.

Sensations of pulling and pinching during the treatment are normal, but overall the medicine should cause minimal pain. Immediately after treatment, your service provider will massage the affected area to break up any frozen deep tissue and aid your body to begin to absorb the destroyed fat cells.

7. How long does a CoolSculpting treatment take?

Each targeted area can take between one and three hours. While waiting for the treatment to be completed, it is recommended that you bring a book, listen to music, or even work on a laptop.

8. What is the recovery like after CoolSculpting?

There is minimal to no downtime following treatment, and you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities. There is minor redness or soreness in the treated area in some rare cases, but this will subside in a few days/weeks.

9. When will I see the results?

After you receive your treatment, you will see noticeable results between one and three months. This is because fat cells are slowly being removed from the body, and it can take up to four to six months after your final treatment to see results.

10. How many CoolSculpting “sessions” will I need to do to reach my goal?

For some people, one session is sufficient in order to achieve their desired result. During your consultation, your service provider will estimate how many sessions you will need, but most treatments can be completed in just two sessions. For example, one session can get rid of 20-25% of fat in one treated area.

11. How much does CoolSculpting cost in Canada?

The cost of each session depends on the size of the area being treated and the size of the applicator used. In Canada, small applicators cost approx. $750-900, and the larger sizes can go upwards of $1000.

12. What are the risks of Cool Sculpting?

CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure and is relatively safe to undergo. There are some common side-effects, which include:

  • Intense sensations of cold
  • Tingling
  • Stinging
  • Aching
  • Cramping
