CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an innovative and FDA-approved way to get rid of resistant fat. The procedure uses precision cooling to target and freeze away fat cells. It’s not meant for weight loss, but for contouring and shaping fatty areas that linger even when you’re at your target weight.

Your dermatologist performs the procedure right in the office without incisions or surgery. Because there’s no downtime, you can return to school, work, or your regular activities immediately after your treatment.

Who is a candidate for CoolSculpting?

At your personal consultation, your dermatologist conducts a physical exam to determine if you can benefit from CoolSculpting. 

If you’re at your ideal weight, but still need to destroy pockets of stubborn fat, you’re eligible for the procedure. CoolSculpting is effective for:

  • Arms
  • Under your chin
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Back

If you have other areas of your body that concern you, talk to the team at CSC Steil Dermatology to discuss your options.

How does CoolSculpting work?

Your skin care team shows you to your private room where you can relax and get ready for the procedure. Your dermatologist places a gel pad right on the area of unwanted fat. 

The device deploys powerful, controlled cooling that crystallizes your fatty cells and causes them to flush from the body.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

Not at all. You may feel a sudden and intense cold sensation, but it quickly subsides and is well tolerated by most patients. In fact, many people reply to texts, watch television, or read a book during the treatment.

When will I see results?

It takes your body some time to eliminate the fat cells through the lymphatic system. Within three weeks, you’ll notice that you’re shapelier and more contoured. 

In about two to four months, all the dead fat cells are eliminated and you can enjoy the long-lasting results. Just keep in mind that your individual results may vary.

If you’re ready to get rid of your fat once and for all, try body contouring with CoolSculpting at CSC Steil Dermatology at either location. Call the office to schedule your appointment.
