Q. Is CoolSculpting right for me?

A. Whether you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting depends on a number of factors. Most importantly, you should be at a stable weight range with an idea of your cosmetic goals. You should also be committed to a healthy and active lifestyle in order to prevent future weight gain that could compromise your CoolSculpting results. At your free consultation and evaluation, CoolBodyContouring will help you decide how CoolSculpting may benefit you.*

Q. How does CoolSculpting work?

A. CoolSculpting is an innovative fat reduction procedure that uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells away. During your CoolSculpting treatment, your specialist will apply the patented CoolSculpting device directly to your target area(s). The device then delivers cooling energy to the treatment area. Cryolipolysis leaves the skin unharmed while freezing underlying fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue.* After your treatment, your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells gradually over the coming weeks and months.* 

Q. Where does CoolSculpting work best?

A. One of the biggest appeals of CoolSculpting is that the treatment is FDA cleared for fat reduction in several popular target areas: double chin, inner and outer thighs, abdomen, waist, love handles, back and “bra bulge” area, under the buttocks, and the upper arms.* At CoolBodyContouring, we offer the complete and most current selection of differently designated CoolSculpting applicators.

Q. How long will my CoolSculpting appointment take?

A. Your CoolSculpting consultation lasts about 20 minutes. The exact length of your CoolSculpting treatment appointment will depend on your treatment area(s), but most appointments last from 1 to 2 hours.* We are the only CoolSculpting practitioner in Savannah with two machines and ALL the latest applicators, allowing us to treat in half the time, and sometimes less.* CoolBodyContouring offers the latest technology in CoolSculpting, allowing us to treat you in 35 minutes for most areas, delivering more body contouring results in less time.*

Q. Does CoolSculpting hurt?

A. Most people report feeling no discomfort during the CoolSculpting procedure.* You will initially feel something like an ice cube on the skin that goes away in a few minutes as the area goes numb.We will take extra care to keep you as comfortable as possible. Most people relax, watch TV, use their phone or laptop, read or even take a nap during their procedure.

Q. What about downtime?

A. Unlike more invasive body contouring procedures such as liposuction, CoolSculpting can freeze away fat cells without any downtime.* Once you finish your treatment, you can return to your normal routine.* You may develop some temporary bruising or minor swelling surrounding your treatment area, but this should fade in the following days and weeks.*

Q. How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

A. The number of CoolSculpting treatments you schedule depends on your goals. Many people feel positive about their results after a single session.* Dr. Everhard and his staff will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. 

Q. When can I see my results?

A. After your CoolSculpting procedure, your body gradually eliminates the destroyed fat cells.* Although your individual experience may vary, many people report seeing results about 3 weeks after their appointment.* Typically, final results are visible by around 3 months after your last CoolSculpting appointment.*  Some report results to continue up to 4 months after treatment.* See our Before and After Gallery to see pictures of real patient results, or visit our office and ask to see our Photo Book.*

Q. How long will my results last?

When the treated fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.  Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.*
