Cool Core Pricing
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.
Zeltiq usually sets the base price, however, prices range from clinic to clinic. You can visit zeltiq website to see which doctor is near you. It is important to have the procedure done with a doctor who is experienced in cool sculpting.

Thank you for your question…pricing is a touchy subject for most. When you have a consult for coolsculpting the price is dependent upon the number of cycles that you are receiving and the applicator that is being used. I cannot say that you were charged too much or too little for what you had done, however Zeltiq provides minimum advertised pricing.
Coolsculpting treatment cost
Thank you for your question and your concern. The cost of coolsculpt really depends upon the number of treatments and the type of applicators used. It is possible that the applicator which was used in your case could be 4 Cool max rather than 4 Cool core which explains the cost. As a physician who introduced coolsculpt to the Northshore area of Boston a few years ago, I have personally performed thousands of treatments with two Coolsculpt machines. We offer anywhere between 10-20% off depending upon the number of treatments patients choose. We also offer Z Wave treatment with Coolsculpting. "Provider experience with Coolsculpting" is an important factor not just the cost or discount.

Each office offers different pricings. It seems a bit high but pricing is different in each state as well. You can always compare with other offices and look at their office before and after photos to help decide where you want to get the treatment.
