CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is a leading non-surgical body-contouring treatment that eliminates fat without the need for scars or downtime to recover. It’s an FDA-approved treatment that safely freezes unwanted fat cells and expels them to sculpt your body into its ideal shape.

Dr. Maida works closely with you to address what your concerns and beauty goals are and develops a customized CoolSculpting plan. 

How does CoolSculpting work?

When you’re trying to lose weight, it’s normal for fat to linger even after you’ve reached your target weight. Weight loss and exercise shrink your fat cells, but they remain in your body.

CoolSculpting gets rid of the lingering fat without damaging your skin or any of the surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting flash-freezes lingering fat cells, and your immune system then flushes them out.

If you have a large number of pounds to lose before you reach your target weight, Dr. Maida recommends that you lose the bulk of your weight before seeking sculpting treatment. 

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

Dr. Maida uses CoolSculpting to reduce fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Submental fat, also called the double chin

How does a CoolSculpting procedure work?

Dr. Maida first starts by evaluating your body type and comparing it to your aesthetic goals. If he determines that you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, he’ll work with you to craft an individualized treatment plan.

A CoolSculpting session can last anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes, depending on the area you’re targeting. Dr. Maida places an applicator onto the treatment area, which instantly starts to cool down the area. You might experience a chill initially as the applicator touches your skin.

The best part about CoolSculpting is that it doesn’t require recovery time, so if you book your appointment with Dr. Maida in the middle of your work day, you can go right back to work.

You can expect results as quickly as three weeks after the procedure. It can take up to six months for you to notice the full effect, because your immune system needs time to flush out the fat cells.
