Target stubborn fat with your CoolSculpting treatment

During your treatment, your CoolSculpting specialist will apply a gel pad and applicator to the targeted area. You will feel intense cold in that localized area as controlled cooling is applied, but after 5-10 minutes, the feeling dissipates as the area becomes numb. You can read, work, watch tv or even nap while getting treated.

Get back to life right away

Since CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive, there’s no downtime and you can return to normal activities with ease. You may start to see results after several weeks as your body naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells. Most patients will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months.

CoolSculpting FAQs

Cool Contours is excited to offer the fat-freezing treatment CoolSculpting to our clients. To help you learn more about CoolSculpting, we share the most commonly asked questions about the procedure. Sign up for a consultation today. Our office is located in Fairfax serving the entire Northern Virginia area.

Am I a good candidate?

Good candidates have noticeable fat in certain areas they’d like to reduce or eliminate. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?

We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions to meet your goals.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

What does the CoolSculpting application feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This feeling soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for nine areas on the body. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

No supplements or pills are required, and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. However, some patients feel more motivated to take better care of their body and lifestyle after their CoolSculpting treatments. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again due to the fantastic results they see from CoolSculpting.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

After seeing the positive results from their CoolSculpting procedure, many patients make an effort to take better care of their health and body in order to not gain weight. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
