Coolsculpting Q&A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a treatment that eliminates extra fat cells in particular areas. Even if you follow a strict exercise routine and diet, some areas of fat remain because of your natural fat distribution. You might feel like these areas of fat make you look disproportionate or that they affect the way your clothes fit. 

The CoolSculpting treatment uses very cold temperatures to freeze your fat cells. This causes the fat cells to break down and later leave your body through the lymphatic system. The treatment doesn’t harm any other surrounding tissues including nerves and muscles. 

During CoolSculpting at The Dermatology Center of Worcester, the team applies a gel pad and applicator to the area you’d like to target. The device delivers controlled cooling while suctioning against your skin. You might feel a pulling or tugging sensation, but the treatment involves minimal discomfort. 

Who should consider CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an excellent choice for people who have recently lost weight but have trouble losing those last few pockets of fat in specific areas. A few places you might decide to target with CoolSculpting at The Dermatology Center of Worcester are your:

  • Abdomen 
  • Love handles
  • Double chin
  • Thighs
  • Arms

It isn’t a weight-loss treatment, so you should be sure to get close to your goal weight before considering the procedure. It’s up to you to decide if you want to target a single area or include several in your personalized treatment plan. 

What should I expect after CoolSculpting?

There is no requirement for rest after CoolSculpting, so you can go about your day as usual when you leave the office. If you have any side effects like soreness or redness, you can expect them to disappear within a few weeks.

You won’t see the results of CoolSculpting right away because it takes time for the damaged fat cells to leave your body. After about three weeks, you’re able to see a difference, but it can take up to three months to see the final results. You might need more than one treatment depending on the size of the area you decide to target.

The results of CoolSculpting are lifelong as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to avoid gaining weight.
