Does CoolSculpting Really Work?
Doctor Answers 16
I recommend visiting CoolSculpting Certified Practice for an in-person consultation to determine if you would benefit from the procedure.
SculpSure has consistently beaten CoolSculpting in head-to-head studies providing our staff here at Clevens Center to prefer SculpSure. SculpSure is a non-invasive lipolysis device that leverages controlled and targeted hyperthermic laser. The technique dives past your dermis for minimal absorption and then penetrates deeply to destroy subcutaneous fat.
I suggest you consult a board certified facial plastic surgeon to receive the highest quality knowledge, treatment, care and skill available.
Coolsculpting results and timing
As far as efficacy, I would still rate surgical solutions as a more effective tool at achieving the results you may be looking for, however, the trade-off is the downtime.

CoolSculpting Has Produced Undeniable Results
Cool sculpting results are improved with post procedure massage
Body reshaping can be performed with a cannula that removes fat via liposuction or with noninvasive technology like Cool Sculpting. With Cool Sculpting there is no cannula inserted into your body. All treatments are performed on the surface from the outside in using technology that freezes the fat. Don’t hesitate to give us a call in Austin regarding a Body Reshaping Consult at the Upper Room. On our Facebook Page there is an Interview I recently did with KVUE, a local news station in Austin, that was picked by affiliates around the United States, including Miami. During the Interview we discussed the technology of Cool Sculpting as well as it application process.
The discomfort from treatment does resolve. Taking over the counter tylenol or naproxen resolves this in the majority of cases. If you have swelling that is persistent then a waist binder is helpful.
CoolSculpting REALLY works
As with all cosmetic procedures, there are many variables that enter the equation and not all patients derive the same excellent result. CoolSculpting can provide significant fat loss to many individuals. Rarely there are cases in which the amount of fat removal is less than satisfactory but patient satisfaction with CoolSculpting in my NYC practice is very high. Depending on the build of the patient, some are told pretreatment that they may need as many as three procedures separated by at least one month, to get a signficant result. Patients are informed that Zeltiq's freezing fat method is not a replacement for diet and exercise. If a patient continues to eat the same excessive calories that put on the fat initially, they will not see the same loss of fat as someone who once they lose the girth, reduce the calories eaten.
In the last three years we have seen a significant improvement in the loss of fat by producing two to three treatment sessions in many patients and by overlapping the applicators so that one cosmetic unit is truly being sculpted rather than being only reduced.
CoolSculpting Does Work - but NOT for everyone
CoolSculpting DOES work. But, I wold strongly disagree with the dermatologist who started her answer with "CoolSculpting works for everyone" It does not. Most healthy people with areas of stubborn, unwanted fat can achieve wonderful results with CoolSculpting
Some people simply do not have enough body fat for Coolsculpting to work effectively. There are areas where a person may have unwanted small bulges, but if the handpiece doesn't fit securely, the patient will not see results. Even people with large bellies, but very firm fat may not be ideal candidates if the handp[iece does not fit securely over the skin and fat . Additionally people who are obese, and looking for weight loss vs. reduction or elimination of stubborn areas of excess fat are not ideal candidates.
Yes, CoolSculpting works. It works for most people, but not for everyone. Please take your time and ask a lot of questions before and during your consultation. if you feel any pressure during a consultation, do not procedure with a treatment at that time.
We have had people disappointed to learn they are not ideal candidates for CoolSculpting in my practice. But, being turned away with an explanation is far less disappointing than having someone take your money and time for a procedure that may not be ideal for you.
