CoolSculpting® is a cryolipolysis remodeling treatment, a technique that freezes small stubborn fat deposits. The adipocytes destroyed by the cold are then naturally eliminated by the body.
Treatment: Small excess of localized fat
We all have stubborn fat that is difficult, if not impossible to lose with a diet or exercise. CoolSculpting® treats the small surplus of fat on the face and body: double-chin, arms, upper back, armpit folds, male gynecomastia, hips, belly, inner thighs, the fold under the buttocks and knees.
This technique is not recommended for pregnant women and those who are hypersensitive to cold. In no case can it be a substitute for a diet and exercise plan.
The course of the session of CoolSculpting®
It lasts between one to three hours depending on the number of areas to be treated and the amount of fat to be eliminated.
The doctor places a pad of gel to protect the skin and then applies to the area to be treated a device combining the effects of suction and cold. When the device pulls the beads in the cooling panels, the patient feels a strong pinching as well as an intense cold. Tingling may also occur but will disappear with the numbness of the treated area.
In a few minutes, the temperature, continuously controlled by the device, is lowered to a temperature of about -10 degrees. CoolSculpting® controls the temperature on the treated area at all times, allowing it to maintain intense cold for the time required to remove fat.
The Cooling treatment causes the natural death of targeted fat cells. Less sensitive to cold, neighboring cells and muscles are not affected. Over the next few weeks, the body begins to eliminate dead fat cells on its own.
The elimination of fat cells results in a concentration of the remaining cells, a general decrease in the fat layer.
During the first few minutes of cooling, the patient feels pressure and intense cold. This impression disappears quickly enough. Installed comfortably, the patient can read, listen to music, check emails, or nap during treatment.
During the session, the doctor's assistant regularly checks that the treatment is going well. The applicators have various shapes and sizes to adapt to the natural contours of the body and to treat large areas at once.
The side effects of cryolipolysis
The patient can resume all activities immediately after CoolSculpting®. The treated area is red and slightly sensitive for a few hours. Sometimes following the aspiration of the skin, some hematomas can appear but they disappear after a few days. Patients feel aches for seven to ten days.
CoolSculpting® can help lose 30% to 45% of fat at each session. For some patients, one treatment is enough to achieve the goal they are aiming for. Others decide to renew the sessions to lose even more fat.
The result is visible after two to three months, the time that the fat released by the adipocytes damaged by the cold is eliminated slowly and naturally by the lymphatic system and assimilated by the liver.
The body will still get rid of fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment.
A healthy lifestyle helps to keep the benefits of CoolSculpting® sustainable. After the treatment, patients are more likely to take care of themselves, monitor their diet and exercise regularly. As long as the weight remains stable, the long-term results are maintained.
The price of CoolSculpting
For each patient, the doctor establishes a personalized treatment plan indicating the type and number of applicators depending on the area treated and the amount of fat to be eliminated.
There are several applicators of different sizes that fit perfectly to the natural contours of the face and body: CoolMini, CoolAdvantage, CoolSmooth, and CoolMax.

Consultation with the doctor
The duration of the session includes:
- Dressing and undressing.
- Taking measurements and photos.
- The set up of the patient.
- The treatment time (duration of a cycle and massage between two cycles).
Two machines are available which make it possible to halve the total time necessary for the same treatment.
It is possible to combine several zones during the same session. In this case, the quotes are established by the doctor during the consultation.
At each additional session, the patient loses another 30 to 45% of fat. To maximize the result, the doctor can provide in the treatment plan a second session, or even a third session.
