CoolSculpting is a fat removal procedure. Coolsculpting treatment involves the application of a handheld device to freeze fat below the surface of the skin. During treatment, the fat cells freeze and crystallize. After the cells die the body processes and eliminates them naturally.
Coolsculpting results usually become noticeable after three weeks, with the most noticeable changes within two months. However, the body continues to process and expel the fat cells for up to six months.
Coolsculpting specifically targets stubborn areas of fat in these key areas:
CoolSculpting is not for significant weight loss in obese people or people who are more than 20 pounds overweight. An alternative treatments such as liposuction may be necessary for some areas of the body.
The cost of CoolSculpting varies between regions, and the number of applications used. The cost for treatment on multiple body areas averages $2,250, according to statistics from realself.com.
An important factor determining price is the size of the applicator. Mini applicators cost approximately $750 to $900, medium applicators cost around $600 to $800, and large applicators cost roughly $1,200 to $1,500.
An example is a single treatment of the lower abdominal area requires a large applicator and can cost up to $1,500, while treating the upper abdomen with a small applicator is closer to $900.
