Common CoolSculpting Questions Answered


What is CoolSculpting?

Nowadays, we’re all well aware of the need to stay fit and healthy and so try to eat well and exercise regularly, but sometimes, no matter how hard we try we just can’t shift the stubborn pockets of fat that irritate us.

Certain areas of fat can be harder to shift than others due to hormones, age, body-shape and also genetics and this is where CoolSculpting can help.   This non-invasive, body-contouring treatment has been proven for efficacy and safety and has stood the test of time to become the World’s No.1 body contouring and fat freezing machine. 


Does CoolSculpting work on arms?

Yes, very well!  Coolsculpting can work exceptionally well on upper arms to target what is often referred to as ‘’bingo wings”.  The treatment of upper arms is very popular with Coolsculpting as sometimes we can feel self conscious when it comes to the summer months and we want to wear sleeveless tops and dresses.

Is CoolSculpting FDA approved?

Yes!  Coolsculpting is the only FDA-approved fat freezing treatment available.  Coolsculpting can treat targeted areas to freeze the fat away to contour the body and reduce fat by up to 27% in just one treatment.


Does CoolSculpting help with stretch marks?

No – Coolsculpting will freeze fat and kill the fat cells under the skin, it is not a treatment for Stretch marks as it does not have any impact on the surface of the skin.


How many CoolSculpting sessions does it take to freeze fat?

Successful fat freezing results can be achieved with CoolSculpting in only one visit – and multiple areas can be treated on the same day.  Depending on the amount of fat you want to lose you may require a second visit for additional treatment on the same areas.


How soon do you see results with CoolSculpting?

Most people see results between 6-12 weeks after their CoolSculpting treatment.

Is CoolSculpting the same as cryolipolysis?

Yes – Cryolipolysis is the process of freezing of fat which kills the fat cells in that localised area. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved treatment of Fat freezing, proving its efficacy and safety.


Can you exercise after CoolSculpting?

Coolsculpting is non-invasive and so most people feel able to resume their exercise routines straight after treatment, however this can vary due to the area treated and some people may prefer to do more gentle exercise for a few days first.
