If you’re considering a CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment, you might be wondering how much others are satisfied with their CoolSculpting results. We share that and more in this post. 

CoolSculpting is the number one noninvasive fat reduction treatment on the market. This fat freezing treatment has become a highly sought-after treatment for those with diet- and exercise-resistant fat in specific treatment areas. But do people really love CoolSculpting as much as it’s said they do, and what results can be achieved?

To answer these questions and more, we turn to Houston-based Aesthetician and CoolSculpting Specialist Nicci Pedroni. 

What is CoolSculpting’s satisfaction rating?

According to RealSelf, over two-thirds of patients state that CoolSculpting was worth it. Additional research shows that 88% of people who underwent cryolipolysis would agree to additional treatments, and 92% would recommend the treatment to others.

According to Pedroni, patient satisfaction increases over time following treatment as they see more and more of their desired results, with the ultimate satisfaction from clients coming in at that 90-day follow up after their last treatment of doing Coolsculpting. 

“I personally see the satisfaction in all the clients we treat with Coolsculpting typically on their second visit and the final 90-day visit, “shares Pedroni, “A lot of clients are mind blown to see the difference in the 30-day progress pics we take before the start of the second visit and at the end of their 90-day follow up visit, confirming the satisfaction in choosing Coolsculpting Elite for their stubborn fat areas. All clients love seeing the reduction of fat and the difference through their before and after pictures, all while not having to change their everyday life with little or no downtime.”

How does CoolSculpting work?

The technical name for CoolSculpting is cryolipolysis. Through cryolipolysis, cold is applied, and the cells respond by breaking down fatty tissue. Over time, the fat cells gradually die and are naturally eliminated by the body through its lymphatic system. Meanwhile, the surrounding muscles, nerves, and tissues of the treatment area are left unaffected.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting Elite is FDA-cleared to treat nine areas of the body. These areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Back fat
  • Bra fat
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Underneath the buttocks (banana roll)
  • Under the chin (double chin)
  • Knees

What can you expect during and following a CoolSculpting treatment?

During treatment, individuals report minimal to no discomfort. Many read, work, or rest during treatment.

Some side effects can occur following treatment, including temporary redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, firmness, numbness, and pain. These tend to go away relatively quickly. In rare instances, side effects can persist for a few days or up to three weeks following treatment, though they eventually resolve on their own.

“Typically, you can expect some tenderness in the [treatment] area for a couple of days. Certain areas do stay numb a little longer than other body areas, yet this should not bother the client – it will just feel a bit odd for a temporary period of time,” shares Pedroni.

How long does it take to see CoolSculpting results?

Per Pedroni, it’s possible for some patients to see CoolSculpting results and a reduction in fat as early as 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. “I like to explain to clients that, typically, you can start to notice a difference within 4 to 6 weeks, and full results come 90 days after their last treatment.”

It is possible for the body to metabolize fat cells for up to six months following the initial treatment, at which time full CoolSculpting results can be seen.

How much fat can you lose with CoolSculpting?

People can expect to see a 20% to 25% reduction in fat in treatment areas. Results vary between individuals based on various factors, like the treatment area and individual body chemistry. 

What are the pros of a CoolSculpting treatment?

With CoolSculpting, the fat reduction results from a noninvasive procedure, unlike liposuction. Being a completely non-surgical procedure, there are no needles, surgery, or downtime during and following a CoolSculpting treatment. As a result, people typically return to normal routines relatively easily and quickly. Many patients even go back to work on the same day and continue their typical workout routine.

Pedroni shares, “One of the best parts of treating with Coolsculpting Elite is the little to no downtime you go through – clients can go about their daily activities after treatment. You do not have to stay away or have restrictions after treatment.” 

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

The average cost of CoolSculpting is $3200.00. Cost varies from person to person based on treatment area and size, number of treatments, and the clinic providing treatment. Treatments can range between $2,000 and $4,000 or more. 

How long do CoolSculpting results last?

“CoolSculping results are maintained longer with a healthy lifestyle,” Pedroni explains, “Always remember you can gain weight after any type of body contouring procedure, whether it be surgical or non-surgical.” 

Fat loss vs. weight loss

CoolSculpting is a fat-loss treatment. It’s not a weight loss treatment. When we gain and lose weight, our fat cells expand and shrink, respectively.

We are born with a certain number of fat cells that stabilize and don’t change over time. With CoolSculpting, fat cells are eliminated from treatment areas, therefore reducing fat inches in those areas. Fat cells do not come back, since “we do not grow or reproduce new fat cells after they are frozen, die, and are eliminated from the body.” However, if the fat cells that are remaining expand, it’s possible for someone to gain weight. 

How do DermaTouch RN CoolSculpting Elite treatments differ?

DermaTouch RN is one of the top CoolSculpting Elite providers in the nation and state of Texas. We’ve conducted 1000s of CoolSculpting treatments for satisfied patients. 

“CoolSculpting Elite is very effective in eliminating pockets of stubborn fat, no matter how much we diet and exercise,” Pedroni shares, “The difference in the way we treat [at DermaTouch RN] compared to other places is that we are very detailed in explaining what to expect with results and show before and after pics of real clients with real results of similar body types. This is a great way to help the client decide if CoolSculpting is the right treatment for them to get the results they want.”
