CoolSculpting® FAQs

Individual results may vary


Does CoolSculpting work for fat reduction?

Yes, CoolSculpting is a revolutionary form of fat reduction that freezes and destroys fat cells, which are then released by the body naturally over a period of up to 3-4 months. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical, noninvasive, and painless way to get rid of excess fat in many areas of the body, particularly the abdomen, flank, inner and outer thighs, and chin. CoolSculpting is also trending to removal of fat in smaller areas, such as the upper bra area. More than four million people across the globe have had CoolSculpting treatments to reduce fat.

Can the neck area (double chin) be treated with CoolSculpting?

Yes, a CoolSculpting device called the CoolMini is specifically designed to eliminate submental fat, known as the double chin. This noninvasive, painless procedure creates a more contoured appearance and restores a more youthful look to that area of the neck. As with CoolSculpting in other areas of the body, the applicator freezes and destroys fat cells that are then eliminated by the body. The CoolMini device is placed under the chin for about 35 minutes, and results become noticeable at about 3-4 weeks, with optimal results at 3-4 months.

Does CoolSculpting work on the inner thighs?

Yes, the inner thighs are areas where stubborn fat is difficult to lose. CoolSculpting is very effective at attacking these areas. Our website shows several before-and-after photos that demonstrate good results with fat removal on the inner thighs. Click here to view the CoolSculpting gallery of photos.

What side effects are associated with CoolSculpting?

Because CoolSculpting is nonsurgical and noninvasive, there are no side effects associated with the procedure. It is a painless technique, so there is no need for anesthesia or numbing to the targeted area. You will feel well, and you can return to work or resume other normal activities immediately following the procedure.

Will CoolSculpting work on the abdomen and/or “muffin top”?

Yes, as with the inner thighs, CoolSculpting can treat that muffin top area of the abdomen. As many people over age 40 begin to realize, this is a particularly stubborn area of fat that has shifted from the chest, hips, and buttocks to the abdomen due to changing hormonal levels. This area seems resistant to sit-ups and other forms of exercise, so let CoolSculpting do the work for you!

What type of results should I expect?

Of course, individual results will vary. But in the weeks that follow your CoolSculpting procedure, those frozen, crystallized fat cells will naturally be eliminated by the body, and you will begin to see improvement in your appearance. Results will be optimal at 3-4 months.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an appropriate treatment for both men and women who are ready to win the battle against unwanted, excess fat, are concerned about the dangers of liposuction, and are too busy to take time off from work to recover from an invasive procedure or surgery. CoolSculpting is generally most effective for those who are within 30 lbs. of their ideal weight but have areas of excess fat; it is not for the treatment of obesity.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments will depend on how much fat you want to eliminate. You can expect a reduction of about 25% of unwanted fat cells per treatment, and the fat loss is permanent as long as you maintain your weight. RevitaLife has invested in the newest CoolSculpting applicators, so treatment time is generally decreased from 45 to 35 minutes per treatment.

When will I see results?

Again, individual results vary, but results generally begin to show up at about 3-4 weeks, sometimes as soon as 2 weeks. Optimal results are reached at 3-4 months.

Can I return to work after treatment?

Yes, you can return to work and resume all other normal activities immediately after a CoolSculpting treatment. It is nonsurgical, noninvasive and painless procedure, so there is no downtime.
