CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses a controlled device to freeze and destroy fat. Fatty areas are gently pinched between the CoolSculpting applicator, which cools the area to a temperature that causes fat cells to crystallize and die. This treatment isn't intended for massive weight loss, but for treating problem areas like loves handles, stomach rolls, and arm fat. LEARN MORE ›

I got the procedure Tuesday, June 9th, making today the 6th day for me. After how much this website has helped me, I felt I owed my experience to the community as well. I got coolsculpting on my abdomen using 4 small applicators. The procedure itself, for me, not so bad. First seven minutes... READ MORE

I have always had saddlebags and love handles, even when I was a teenager with knobby knees. I was looking into surgical lipo but the price, anesthesia, risks and recovery didn't sound appealing. Plus, the result I am seeking is subtle and surgical lipo seemed like overkill. So here I am, Cool... READ MORE

My procedure it was done Wednesday I watched all the videos before I went but I have to say when I first put it on it was very painful and I did cry once I got through the first 10 minutes it was fine but then when they took it off it was even more painful and that lasted for about 20 minutes I...

I had my procedure done at Ideal Image in Arlington, TEXAS. The office staff is really nice. The office itself is really clean. I was quick to be approved to do a 10 session procedures upper, lower abdomen and love handles, I did not see a doctor, there is no Doctors at the location. I spoke... READ MORE

So I went in knowing the possible outcomes so that prepared me to what was to come. I did a total of 8 applications (1 hour each) but they do two at a time. I did my bra line, love handles and my lower and upper abdomen. The temperature is put to -10 c. The first 5-10 minutes are pretty... READ MORE

I felt bloated and fat and as a long time sufferer of polycyst I was giving up hope , I went on my holiday to Thailand and I was shopping around for a dental procedure . The surgery here is very good by the way and I fell upon a sure that does cool sculpting . I felt only a slight bit of... READ MORE

I had my lower abdomen done with a large applicator. The initial suction part was uncomfortable and almost felt like it was hard to get a good breath since it was intensily sucking my abdomen. Once the cooling was on, i never felt cold. Instead, it was a light burning sensation. After about 15... READ MORE

For reference - I'm 25, 5' 4", 114 lbs (before and after), fairly active (i exercise about 4-5 days a week). I wanted to target my excess lower and upper abdomen fat. I had CoolSculpting on my upper and lower abdomen about 5 weeks ago. One small applicator was used on both of the areas for an... READ MORE

Okay so I have a PS appointment next Thursday. My first consult. I guess I will have to cancel. I was on my way to do an errand and happened by Yaletown Laser Clinic in Vancouver BC. They happened to be having a sale! I went in to check it out. Always get more than one opinion right? So I wen in... READ MORE

I was extremely anxious to have this procedure done, as i am sure most are about any procedure. I just kept reminding myself that its noninvasive and FDA approved PLUS Chelsea Eye is the best. Got to the office and all the ladies at the front were very welcoming as usual settled in and waited... READ MORE

Had Coolsculpting done 10/27. It was definitely more painful than I had anticipated. Have a lot of swelling in lower abs but not much on Love handles. When they first put on the machine it definitely hurts but after about 10 min you don't feel as much. It was not a great feeling getting the... READ MORE

I'm a 19 year old woman, 5'2" and 115 lbs. I exercise 3-4 days a week and watch what I eat, but no matter what my weight is I've always felt a bit top heavy with big old love handles. I went in to see Dr. Jill Hessler MD in Palo Alto, CA for a consultation and was treated very nicely and... READ MORE

Ok, so I lost about 30 pounds in the past year pretty evenly except for a pocket of fat on my lower abdomen when I went for my consultation, the nurse recommend I do my upper and lower just so the end result is even and flat after the three months. I had it done (4 sessions at once -two suction... READ MORE

I'm roughly 110lbs. I am 5'4. My BMI is 18.9. I have always been "skinny" but I was never comfortable wearing tight clothing because I had a protruding belly to the extent that my friends would poke me and my family would laugh at me. When I was in high school and had gym 5 days a week, I still... READ MORE

I had this done to remove some extra fat around my lower abs and did my upper as wee, 4 applicators in a diamond shape. I'm 5'1 113 lbs and had a fairly flat tummy to begin with. However, it's been 3 months and I've seen some fat reduction but it's very uneven. I did my post 60 day follow up and... READ MORE

Going for a final consults after an open house where I got a discount to get 2 treatments on each leg- inner thigh- will go in Sept for the first one and then after the holidays in DEC for the second- hoping to see a 40% difference in each thigh- wanted arms but they said I was not a good...

I'm 3 treatments in (bought 5) and had them almost 2 weeks ago. Not feeling skinnier by any means! But the swelling has pretty much gone down. Day 1 I was fine - no discomfort. Day 2 was a different story! I didn't expect the soreness (even though all the things I read said to expect it!) -... READ MORE

So here is the start of my experience. If you've read my posts under the mini TT category you know this has taken me a while to reach this point! I'm just in the middle of my first ok procedure. So far so good. It did hurt a bit at first. A mix of stinging and burning. Right now it's more like... READ MORE

I work out 3-4 times a week but I could not get rid of this pouch in my mid-section. I tried CoolSculpting for my abs and flanks and it works. The procedure is not painful, it is cold and slightly uncomfortable at first but the uncomfortably goes away. You sit there for one hour and read a book... READ MORE

I'm 5'3, 140 lbs. I work out and watch what I eat, but no matter what I do, I cannot get rid of my tummy. I finally decided to tackle it once and for all. Originally, I thought my only option was liposuction, but after seeing a few plastic surgeons and being told that CoolSculpting would give me... READ MORE
