CoolSculpting Q & A
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared body-sculpting tool that uses state-of-the-art fat-freezing technology to remove unwanted fat from your body without surgery or downtime. The freezing energy created by CoolSculpting targets the fat cells under your skin, which causes the cells to crystallize and die. Your body then processes the destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system, leaving you with fewer fat cells and a trimmer, slimmer body frame.
Dr. Brooks uses his CoolSculpting tool to treat many common trouble spots, including:
- Abdomen and flank
- Thighs and buttocks
- Back and arms
CoolSculpting is even safe enough to remove the stubborn pocket of fat under your chin, referred to as submental fat.
Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Dr. Brooks determines if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting during a consultation. While the revolutionary system can remove body fat, it’s not a weight-loss tool. To be considered a good candidate, you should be at or near your desired body weight, with a body mass index of 30 or less.
Dr. Brooks is a skilled cosmetic surgeon who offers many procedures to enhance your look and help you achieve your goals, with or without CoolSculpting.
What can I expect during my CoolSculpting session?
CoolSculpting is a painless procedure Dr. Brooks conducts at his office. You may feel an intense rush of coolness when the CoolSculpting tool is initially placed on your skin, but the sensation disappears quickly as the area numbs. Your CoolSculpting session takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the part of your body undergoing treatment.
You may experience some redness or bruising at the site of your treatment, but there’s no downtime following CoolSculpting.
How long does it take to see the results of CoolSculpting?
You should start to notice an improvement in your shape within two weeks of treatment, with continued improvements over the next few months. Though Dr. Brooks can improve your body shape with CoolSculpting, it’s important that you eat a healthy diet and engage in regular physical activity after your treatment to help maintain the results.
