CoolSculpting Q & A


How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses FDA-approved cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells beneath the skin. You can take advantage of this technology to freeze fat on your abdomen, hips, thighs, or other locations.

CoolSculpting is different than weight loss. When you lose weight, your fat cells shrink, but they never go away completely. CoolSculpting permanently destroys up to 25% of fat cells in the treatment area.

Most adult men and women can benefit from CoolSculpting treatment, and it’s safe and has few risks of side effects.

What should I expect during CoolSculpting treatment?

During your first appointment, you will meet with Dr. Layliev to discuss your goals and desired appearance to determine which areas need CoolSculpting treatment.

During the procedure, Dr. Layliev will secure the CoolSculpting applicator on areas where you want to get rid of fat bulges or stubborn fat. The applicator may use suction to pull and surround the tissue to more effectively reach the fat cells. The device then applies extreme cold to the skin and fat underneath it.

The procedure is comfortable and should not cause pain, lasting between 30-60 minutes. Dr. Layliev can perform CoolSculpting on multiple areas at the same time, reducing the number of appointments you need to schedule.

After your treatment, you can immediately return to your normal activities. You may have some redness or swelling in the application site, but this should go away quickly.

When will I see results from CoolSculpting?

You may need multiple treatments with Dr. Layliev to get the best results from CoolSculpting. Your results will improve over time as your body clears away dead fat cells. Most patients see optimal results after two months.

You can improve your results with exercise and proper diet. While CoolSculpting destroys fat cells permanently, it doesn't stop new ones from forming in the future. That makes it essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle after your treatment. CoolSculpting does make weight loss more apparent, so you enjoy a slimmer appearance and feel more comfortable in your clothes.
