Buyer Beware: if It’s Too Fast, Then It’s Not CoolSculpting®

Before you jump right into a nonsurgical body contouring treatment, you should have a consultation with a qualified professional to go over the details. Use this time to ask as many questions as you can think of to help you decide if this is the right treatment and provider for you.

One important question to ask is how long your CoolSculpting® treatment will take. If you get a suspicious answer, you might want to get a second opinion.


Using the latest applicators, one CoolSculpting session can take as little as 35 minutes to complete. For larger areas, CoolSculpting typically takes around 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and location of the treated area. Of course, this can vary based on your unique situation, but this is a good starting point to help you decide if your treatment session sounds legitimate or not.

So if you’re told that your treatment can be done in 10 minutes, for instance, it’s either not CoolSculpting or it’s not being performed properly and you should seek treatment elsewhere.

Ask to see before and after photos before choosing a CoolSculpting provider.


While CoolSculpting results can be pretty amazing, they’re not going to happen overnight. You could start to see small improvements in the way your jeans fit in a few weeks, but generally speaking, it takes around three months to enjoy your final results. If a practice promises full results nearly instantly, take this as a red flag and get a second opinion.
