CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a unique body contouring technology that uses controlled cooling to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. 

Diet and exercise promote good health and general weight loss but are less effective when it comes to reducing localized areas of fat. CoolSculpting can eliminate fat that resists other weight loss methods, so you look slimmer and feel your best. 

The technology penetrates your outer layers of skin to disrupt the fat cells beneath. The cooling technology destroys treated fat cells so your metabolic system can dispose of them naturally.

What areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?

At Metroplex Dermatology, you can take advantage of CoolSculpting to slim and shape problem areas like your: 

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Back

Metroplex Dermatology offers multiple applicators that include the CoolMini®, which can reach small fat pockets like submental fat. This is the fat under the chin that creates a double chin and makes your profile look less than desirable. 

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting isn’t designed for comprehensive weight loss. It works best on people who are within 20-30 pounds of their ideal weight. 

CoolSculpting produces permanent results, but it’s important to maintain an active lifestyle and healthy diet to discourage weight gain in other areas. 

During your consultation, Dr. Hensley can help you determine if CoolSculpting is right for your body contouring goals. 

What should I expect during CoolSculpting?

Each CoolSculpting session takes about 30-45 minutes. The CoolSculpting applicator applies cooling technology to predetermined treatment areas. 

At first, you’ll feel an intense coldness and slight pulling or tugging. After about five minutes, your body adapts to the sensations, and you can relax as the cooling technology goes to work. 

You can return to all your normal activities after treatment. CoolSculpting requires absolutely no downtime. 

When will I see results from CoolSculpting?

It takes a little time for the destroyed fat cells to leave your body. You’ll begin to notice changes in the treated areas after about one month and will continue to notice improvements for up to 4-6 months. 

Many people need a series of treatments to get the results they desire. Dr. Hensley's team carefully considers your goals and develops a customized treatment plan for you.
