Two Harvard pediatricians discovered that their young patients who enjoyed popsicles also got atrophy or shrinking of their cheek fat. CoolSculpting® works by cooling the desired fatty area down to just above freezing, a temperature that does not harm other tissues, but gradually kills fat cells. Each area takes 30 to 45 minutes to treat. There is no pain, disability, or downtime. Areas commonly treated are the double chin, back, abdomen, love handles, and muffin top.

Frequently asked questions
CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.
The applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by that signature cooling effect. During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.
After the applicator is detached, your provider will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. That’s it!
Each CoolSculpting® treatment is different, so it depends on which areas of the body and how many of them you plan on doing. Depending on the area, treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes. The CoolSmooth applicator is discontinued, however some practices may still use it. If you opt to do multiple treatments in a session, expect to spend more time. Some providers have multiple CoolSculpting® machines, allowing patients to do multiple treatment areas at once, reducing the amount of time spent in office.
In most cases, you only need one CoolSculpting treatment per area. However, some people might need a follow-up treatment if they want additional results after several months. Treatment takes a few hours or less, with no required downtime.
