Does CoolSculpting Hurt?

July 28, 2017

For most men and women, there will always be some part of the body that holds onto stubborn fat, no matter how much you diet or exercise. Whether it’s on the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, or other parts of the body, these pockets of fat bring about frustration and reduce confidence. If you find that you constantly have a trouble zone, then CoolSculpting may be for you.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that is specifically designed to treat stubborn body fat. The innovative CoolSculpting procedure uses freezing technology to penetrate the dermis and destroy fat cells. These fat cells are then gradually flushed out of the body leaving you with a slimmer, more contoured appearance.

During a CoolSculpting treatment, the specialist will apply an applicator and a gel pad to the targeted fat area. The CoolSculpting applicator then delivers the cooling energy to the fat, “freezing” the cells. While this process many sound intimidating, the entire thing is completely non-surgical and many patients report feeling comfortable during the treatment. Most patients will read, send emails, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.

Due to its non-invasive nature, CoolSculpting requires little to no downtime after a treatment session, and patients can return to their normal activities that day. While there may be some minor swelling, this will go away after a few days. Some results can be seen about a month after a CoolSculpting treatment, with the most dramatic results being seen within eight weeks.

Coolsculpting can be used for areas like:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Posterior thighs
  • Chin
  • Bra-line
