Are you wondering who the best CoolSculpting candidates are? Are you an ideal candidate? Read on to find out…

Since it came on the market in 2010, CoolSculpting has been helping individuals from around the world reduce stubborn diet- and exercise-resistant fat. It was initially touted as a non-invasive fat reduction spot treatment that evolved into an alternative fat reduction treatment to liposuction without the need to go under the knife.

For those who are looking for a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that requires no downtime, CoolSculpting is a viable alternative. During the past decade, it has come to be known as the number one doctor recommended fat reduction treatment. It is the first and only of its kind to use innovative cooling technology. In this post, we answer who the best CoolSculpting candidates are and much more.

What does CoolSculpting treat?

The best CoolSculpting candidates struggle to get rid of that final exercise- and diet-resistant fat in certain areas of the body. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to treat exercise- and diet-resistant fat in nine body:

  • Arms
  • Bra Fat
  • Stomach (belly fat)
  • Banana rolls (beneath the buttocks)
  • Back Fat
  • Chin Fat (double chin)
  • Jawline Fat
  • Waistline flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs

What is happening when CoolSculpting results appear?

During treatment, paddles are placed on the treatment areas. Controlled cooling technology is then administered. The cooling technology freezes fat cells in the target areas. Over time, the frozen fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. As the fat cells are eliminated, a loss of inches can be seen in the treatment areas. The fat cells are also gone for good once naturally eliminated from the body. Cells in the areas surrounding the treatment area remain intact.

Results can be seen within one to three months. Maximum results can typically be seen within three to four months. Results may continue to be seen as cells are eliminated from your body for up to six months. CoolSculpting results are long-lasting when a healthy lifestyle, including a good meal plan and exercise, are maintained. It is common for individuals to see a 20 to 25 percent reduction in fat in treatment areas following CoolSculpting.

Will I lose weight with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a fat loss treatment, not a weight loss treatment. Therefore, as you lose inches for a slimmer physique, you might not lose weight.

We are born with a certain number of fat cells, and that number stabilizes around adolescence. When we lose and gain weight, our fat cells are shrinking and growing in size. With CoolSculpting, the number of fat cells decrease in the treatment areas, and the total number of fat cells in the body decreases. The decrease in fat cells is what causes the reduction of size in treatment areas.

Some individuals won’t qualify for CoolSculpting. It is not a weight loss treatment. CoolSculpting can help those close to their ideal weight reduce stubborn fat in approved treatment areas.

What is CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is the latest technology in the CoolSculpting family. With CoolSculpting Elite, you get greater results in a shorter amount of time. The original CoolSculpting treatment only allowed you to get one area treated at a time. CoolSculpting Elite makes it possible for two areas to be treated simultaneously.

CoolSculpting Elite uses a C shape applicator instead of the classic CoolSculpting U shape applicator. CoolSculpting Elite’s C shape applicator allows for improved suction, faster treatment times, and more even treatment. Compared to the CoolSculpting classic treatment, CoolSculpting Elite allows for treatment of up to 18% more surface area coverage. Two areas can be treated in half the time, also.

Who is the best CoolSculpting candidate?

Am I a Good Candidate?

CoolSculpting works well for both men and women who are close to their ideal weight. An ideal candidate maintains a relatively healthy lifestyle, as well. Those struggling to lose those last few inches of diet- and exercise-resistant fat tend to make the best candidates.

Women who have had a baby should wait at least one year following the birth of a child prior to scheduling a CoolSculpting treatment. Also, for those that have recently lost a lot of weight, it is suggested they wait to schedule a CoolSculpting treatment until after they’ve maintained their weight for a year.

How much does CoolSculpting Cost?

CoolSculpting cost varies based on several factors. Treatment area, geographical area of practice, practitioner, and number of treatments all effect the price. In general, you can expect to pay $2000 to $4000 for a traditional CoolSculpting treatment, according to RealSelf,

CoolSculpting cost ranges from $475 to $4600, with an average of $2450. At DermaTouch RN, you can expect to pay from $600 to $750 per applicator, and multiple applicators are typically required for each treatment.

The arms and stomach are common treatment areas. To treat both arms and the stomach, the cost ranges from $1400 to $3000 and $1500 to $3000, respectively.

According to the CoolSculpting website, personalized CoolSculpting treatment plans cost an average of $3200 based on a national survey. A survey of over 5000 patients on RealSafe indicates a price range of $650 for a single treatment session in one area to $6835 for a full series of treatments in multiple treatment areas for the cost of CoolSculpting. The average cost reported by respondents equals $2275, which is lower than what the CoolSculpting site reports.

At DermaTouch RN, the cost of CoolSculpting starts at $800  per cycle, and multiple cycles are generally required. We also offer package deals for multiple treatment areas. You can also apply for Medical Spa financing through CareCredit or Cherry Financing to cover CoolSculpting treatments, so you don’t have to pay for the entire treatment out-of-pocket upfront. The healthcare financing company will determine the amount of financing you receive based on your credit history and additional factors.

Your CoolSculpting provider will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan based on your fat loss goals and budget. The smaller the area being treated, the lower your total cost will be compared to the cost for larger treatment areas.
