Coolsculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat loss treatment. This innovative body sculpting tool uses technology that freezes and destroys fat cells without damaging any other cells, tissues, or organs.

Once destroyed, your body removes the fat from the area, leaving you with a trimmer, slimmer figure. CoolSculpting eliminates up to 25% of the fat cells in the treatment area. 

Dr. Briones uses CoolSculpting to eliminate fat from many areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, back, and upper arm. She even uses the nonsurgical body sculpting tool to get rid of submental fat under the chin and submandibular fat along the jawline. 

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting offers many benefits when compared with more invasive body sculpting treatments like liposuction. Some of the benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  • No downtime
  • No pain or incisions
  • Permanent results
  • Getting rid of fat in hard-to-tone areas
  • Treatment only takes an hour

Though CoolSculpting offers many benefits, you won’t see the results of your body sculpting treatments right away. 

Is CoolSculpting right for me?

Dr. Briones is a weight loss specialist, and she conducts an in-depth clinical exam to determine whether CoolSculpting is the right choice for you. It should be noted that CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss procedure. 

Consequently, Dr. Briones may recommend CoolSculpting if you’re at or near your goal weight and want help getting rid of your muffin top, love handles, belly pooch, or back fat. 

If you’re struggling to lose weight and keep it off, Dr. Briones can help. She offers medical weight loss plans designed to match your unique needs, so you can lose the weight and keep it off.

Dr. Briones also offers other nonsurgical weight loss treatments to get rid of unwanted body fat, which may make a better fit if CoolSculpting isn’t the right body sculpting tool for you.  

When can I expect results from CoolSculpting?

It takes time for your body to process and remove the fat cells destroyed during your CoolSculpting treatments. However, you should notice improvements in your body shape within 1-to-3 months. The final results take about six months.

Once the fat cells are gone, they won’t come back. However, Dr. Briones recommends you eat a healthy diet and engage in regular physical activity to maintain results. You may have fewer fat cells, but the ones you still have can grow in size if you consume more calories than you burn.
