What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is a cutting-edge, non-invasive contouring procedure that safely and effectively destroys layers of fat from multiple areas of the body, including submental fullness—or double chin, the stomach, upper thighs, and buttocks. It uses a patented cooling technology that freezes fat cells in the targeted areas without harming the surrounding tissues or the skin.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to safely freeze then eliminate fat. When fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated through the body’s natural processes. This process happens over time.
What are the Advantages of CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is an excellent option for those who are looking for permanent fat loss without the invasive nature or expense of liposuction. The benefits of CoolSculpting® include:
- Clinically proven fat loss
- Zero downtime or recovery
- Easy, painless procedures
- Noticeable results within 8 to 12 weeks
- Ability to treat multiple areas
- Can target stomach, thighs, arms, flanks, chin, and more!

What to Expect from a CoolSculpting® Treatment?
During a CoolSculpting® treatment, the applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your skin, followed by the signature cooling effect. During the treatment, you may experience some pulling, tugging, and intense cold, but it should never be painful. These sensations usually subside as the area becomes numb.
Each CoolSculpting® treatment is different. The length of each treatment lasts depending on the areas of the body to be targeted. Depending on the area, treatments can be done in as little as 35 minutes. If you plan to treat multiple areas in one session, plan on being in the chair for a bit longer.
After the applicator is detached from the skin, your provider will briefly massage the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. After that, you’re free to go about your usual activities while your body metabolizes the destroyed fat cells.
You’ll start to see changes as soon as one to three months post-treatment. Final results may take up to six months.
Who Are the Best Candidates for CoolSculpting® Treatments?
The best and most accurate way to know if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting® is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Huynh at Discover Radiance in Atlanta. We’ll answer your questions, and you’ll gain some clarity on how CoolSculpting® can work for you in addressing your trouble areas. In general, CoolSculpting® is a great treatment for patients who have areas of “pinchable” fat on their body that are tough to target in the gym.
To be a good candidate, you should also be at or near your ideal weight. Coolsculpting® is a body contouring procedure rather than a weight loss option. It will aid you in your weight loss journey, but CoolSculpting® can only help you shed maybe the last ten to fifteen pounds, although most clients would not necessarily see any changes on the scale, only in the mirror.
Another important thing to consider is that CoolSculpting® targets fat, not loose skin, so make sure that the areas you want to target aren’t just loose skin from your weight loss. Loose skin will require a different discussion and treatment with Dr. Huynh.
Does CoolSculpting® Require Any Downtime?
Because Coolsculpting® is completely non-surgical, it’s typically easy to return to your normal activities after a treatment. Often, patients can go back to work on the same day. When you have a CoolSculpting® treatment, there are no needles, surgery, or downtime involved in your recovery. You may notice some skin sensitivity, redness, or numbness at the treatment sites, but those symptoms should dissipate after a day or two.
How Many CoolSculpting® Sessions Will You Need?
While many patients see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area after just their first treatment, results can vary depending on individual response and the areas being treated. It is often recommended to plan for at least two treatment sessions for best results. Your certified Coolsculpting specialist at Radiance will work with you to determine if additional treatments are necessary to reach your ideal goals.
