It all starts with a conversation to find out if you're a candidate for CoolSculpting®. Your provider will customize a treatment plan that's right for you.

  • Think about what area(s) you want to treat.
  • Plan questions to ask your provider about treatment. Not sure what to ask? Here's a list of questions to get started Save questions to device
  • To be eligible for CoolSculpting®, you must be 18 or older, no disqualifying medical conditions, and be interested in eliminating stubborn fat from any of the 9 areas we treat. Talk to your provider to learn more.

  • During your consultation, discuss what areas you'd like to treat, your body contouring goals, and ask questions about treatment.
  • Your provider will assess if you’re a candidate for treatment and develop your personalized treatment plan.
  • Personalized treatment plans include how many CoolSculpting® treatment sessions you’ll need to see your desired result. A treatment session is each time you come in for a treatment appointment with your provider. Each session may include multiple CoolSculpting® treatments. For many patients, two or more treatment sessions are recommended to reach their body contouring goals.
  • The average cost of CoolSculpting® is $3,200.*

*Based on national survey. Prices may vary, talk to your provider to learn more.

  • Your provider will take clinical photographs to help you track your before, during, and after progress.
  • Next, your provider will outline the area to be treated, apply a gel pad to create a barrier between the applicator and your skin, and then place the applicators on your body.
  • As treatment begins, you’ll feel a light vacuum pressure and an intense cold. After approximately 10 minutes or so, the area being treated will become temporarily numb.
  • Everyone has their own sensitivity to discomfort, but most patients do not find the treatment painful. In fact, many people say they like to read, catch up on email, watch TV shows, or even take a nap.
  • When each treatment ends, the applicator(s) and gel pad are removed. The treated area is then massaged for 2 minutes to help break up the fat cells.
  • On average, each treatment session is as little as 35-75 minutes per cycle (treatment), depending on the area treated. Each session is 1-3 hours on average. If you are treated with a CoolSculpting® Elite machine, dual applicators can treat two areas at the same time.
  • Since CoolSculpting® has little to no downtime, you can go back to your busy day.
  • CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure. Continue to maintain your usual diet and exercise routine.
  • Since many patients receive more than one treatment session, you may return for additional treatments in 6-8 weeks.
  • Your body will naturally eliminate the treated fat cells. Typically, it takes 1-3 months to see results, with full results taking 6 months or more.
  • After your treatment plan is complete, don't forget to ask to see your before, during, and after photographs!
