If you are interested in CoolSculpting, you probably have a long list of questions. How long will it take to see results? How does the procedure feel?

- How long will it take to see results?
CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, which then die. As the body expels these cells naturally, the results of CoolSculpting begin to show.
You should notice improvement after three weeks. Sometimes the final results are not apparent until six months after treatment.
- What will I feel?
As its name suggests, CoolSculpting feels cold. During the first few minutes, patients feel intense cold and some pressure, but this dissipates quickly as the target area becomes numb. There is no discomfort; in fact, patients can watch movies, read books, play games or even sleep during treatments. The procedure is non-surgical, so it is not invasive in any way.
- What happens during treatment?
Before your session, your CoolSculpting practitioner will evaluate your cosmetic goals, create a customized treatment plan, and explain what you can expect during the procedure. During your treatment, the practitioner will position the CoolSculpting device on the target area. The device will suck your fat into an area with two cooling panels. You will feel a firm pull and some pressure. Most sessions take approximately one hour.
- What does CoolSculpting cost in Charlotte?
Each CoolSculpting treatment is unique. Your CoolSculpting cost will depend on several factors including the size of the treatment area and the number of sessions you need to reach your desired results. Each session can reduce the fat in a target area by 20 percent to 25 percent.
- Who is the ideal candidate for CoolSculpting?
As the U.S. National Library of Medicine explains, CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity; however, the procedure is highly effective for contouring the body and removing stubborn pockets of fat. The ideal patient has good overall health and does not need significant weight loss.
