CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat-reduction procedure that helps get rid of stubborn pockets of fat to sculpt your body into your desired shape. Moulton Group PC uses CoolSculpting to get rid of fat in several problem areas, including your:

  • Thighs and buttocks
  • Muffin top and belly fat
  • Love handles
  • Back and bra fat
  • Arm fat

CoolSculpting can also treat unwanted fat on your chin and neck. 

While CoolSculpting can significantly improve the shape of your body, it’s not meant as a tool to help you lose weight without the work. Ideally, you should be close to your desired weight before starting treatment. 

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting uses targeted and controlled cooling energy directed at the fat cells under your skin to freeze and destroy the cells without causing any damage to your skin.

Once the cells are destroyed, your body’s natural processing system removes them from your body.

During your consultation at Moulton Group PC, you meet with a CoolSculpting expert who can determine the best treatment plan for your needs and goals. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your desired results.

With various applicators to choose from, your clinician can design a treatment plan to give you your desired results. For some, a customized treatment plan may include more than one session. For example, you can freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs and also get rid of stubborn belly fat.

Some practices have multiple CoolSculpting systems and can simultaneously treat different body areas. Your physician can provide a clinical recommendation of what areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need.

What can I expect during treatment?

During treatment, your Moulton Group PC provider places the CoolSculpting device on the treatment area, and the cooling mechanism targets your fat. As it works, you may feel a tugging, then intense cool, followed by numbness. Treatment isn’t painful, and most people find it a relaxing time to read a book or listen to music.

Depending on the number of areas of your body being worked on, a session can take 30 minutes. Your clinician works with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your aesthetic goals.

After treatment, you can resume your normal activities, whether it’s going back to work or hitting the gym.

When will I see results?

You may notice an improvement in your shape just three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic changes visible around two to three months. But it can take your body up to six months to eliminate all the destroyed fat cells. And once your fat cells are gone, they don’t come back.

To help keep your new, sculpted figure, your Moulton Group PC provider recommends you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. They can sculpt your body into the shape you’ve always wanted, but you need to work at it to keep it.
