CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical contouring treatment that Dr. Schneider uses to freeze away your stubborn fat cells. The innovative therapy crystalizes and kills the troublesome fat cells that ripple just beneath your skin.

Your body’s intuitive lymphatic system flushes the dead fat cells away forever. You’re left with a leaner, more sculpted physique.

What parts of my body can I treat?

There are many parts of your body that can respond to CoolSculpting therapy. This includes:

  • Love handles
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Stomach
  • Double chin, also known as submental fat
  • Upper Arms
  • Bra area and back fat

What can I expect during a CoolSculpting treatment?

In your private spa-like room, you’ll recline and get comfortable. Dr. Schneider applies a gel and uses handheld applicators to freeze your fat cells without harming surrounding tissue. The whole procedure is done without anesthesia, surgery, or needles.

While you receive treatment, you’re free to read, listen to a podcast or music, or catch up on text messages and emails. Each session is an hour or more, and requires absolutely no downtime.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

Not at all. You’ll feel the effects of the rapid and extreme temperature drop, but that causes a numbing sensation rather than pain. You’ll also feel pressure as the applicators do their work. Don’t worry, though, the procedure is well-tolerated by most people, and Dr. Schneider makes sure you stay comfortable throughout your CoolSculpting session.

When will I see results?

Your body will continue to flush fat for 3 months after your treatment. While some patients may see results within around 3 weeks of their first treatment, most dramatic results are seen within 1 to 3 months after treatment ends. You will be pleased to notice that your skin is toner and firmer, and your trouble areas are smoother.
