CoolSculpting Elite Q&A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center is a nonsurgical procedure that reduces stubborn fat bulges by freezing and destroying fat cells. It uses patented cooling technology and is one of the top noninvasive body-contouring treatments available.

Is CoolSculpting right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculping stubborn fat reduction, your Sanctuary Cosmetic Center provider reviews your desired outcome and medical history. They examine you to evaluate areas of your body containing stubborn fat pockets. 

You should be within 15-20 pounds of your ideal weight before the procedure to ensure optimal, long-lasting results.

What is CoolSculpting used for?

CoolSculpting can reduce stubborn fat in men and women in the following areas:

  • Love handles
  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Hips
  • Back 
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Under the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Knees
  • Chest in men
  • Underarms
  • Under the chin
  • Jawline

Sanctuary Cosmetic Center also offers Kybella, an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that reduces fat underneath your chin without surgery or downtime. Your provider might recommend Kybella in conjunction with CoolSculpting.

The plastic surgery practice uses the latest fat-reducing technology, including PrecisionTx™, Profound, and Dual Sculpt, to enhance skin tightening and fat loss. Sanctuary Cosmetic Center’s certified surgeons trained at CoolSculpting University and continue to refresh their skills and training regularly.

What happens during CoolSculpting?

Prior to CoolSculping treatment at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center, your provider takes before photographs and measurements. The CoolSculpting room contains large screens with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video in a comfortable, convenient space. 

They apply a CoolSculpting applicator to targeted areas of your body while you relax in a standing, seated, or reclined position. The applicator delivers cooling effects but isn’t painful. Most CoolSculpting treatments take about 35 minutes. Sessions can last up to 60 minutes, depending on the areas treated.

If your treatment lasts a long time because your provider treats multiple body parts, Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers refreshments and lunches from nearby high-end restaurants.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After CoolSculpting, your provider removes the applicator and manually massages the treatment area for several minutes to break down crystallized fat cells beneath the skin. There’s no downtime after CoolSculpting, so you can resume normal everyday activities.

Over the next few weeks, your body naturally clears destroyed fat cells. You can experience visible slimming in as few as 4-6 weeks. Your provider might recommend multiple treatment sessions or more than one cosmetic procedure to optimize your results.
