Frequently Asked Questions about CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting Quiz


Take the quiz below to find out if this treatment is right for you.

Step 1 of 6

+ What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary technology that uses a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis which targets, cools and eliminates fat cells. After a CoolSculpting procedure the body continues to break down the treated fat cells, now in a crystallized or frozen state, leading to fat cell death. Over the next two to four months they are naturally flushed from the body.

+ How safe is the treatment?

CoolSculpting requires no needles, no incisions and is FDA cleared. The procedure destroys the targeted fat cells only and does not damage the skin or any other organs. It is a safe procedure.

+ Is CoolSculpting a weight loss procedure?

CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment: it reshapes and contours the body beautifully in the areas that are toughest to spot reduce. Fat does not weigh very much but it does take up space. During follow up visits after a CoolSculpting procedure, Chronos clients often say they recognize less volume in the area(s) treated. They often make mention of how the area(s) treated are contoured back to the shape they remember having years ago.

+ What areas of my body can I treat?

CoolSculpting targets stubborn body fat in the areas that are most resistant to change: upper and lower abdomen, back fat, muffin tops, love handles, inner thighs, saddlebags, man boobs, buttocks, knees, arms, chin, and pecs!

+ Why CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, highly effective and safe procedure with little to no downtime. Its benefits compared to other methods of fat reduction are many. For example, the CoolSculpting process is natural. Immediately after each treatment, clients can go about their regular routine. There is no disruption to work schedules or family obligations because there is no post-procedure recovery period.

Through CoolSculpting, clients receive life-changing transformation that is visible to others through results.

+ Does CoolSculpting provide a lasting solution?

Yes. The CoolSculpting procedure is designed to target and destroy fat cells in the treated area. Diet, exercise and other “fat loss” procedures may shrink fat cells, leaving an open opportunity to increase the size of those same fat cells from a lifestyle shift. The body will not remake the fat cells that were destroyed and flushed out of the system with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting does not shrink fat cells, it destroys fat cells. Although CoolSculpting enables fat loss, clients of Chronos are urged to maintain proper diet and exercise during and after their treatment program to maximize their results. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they are gone; however, the remaining fat cells can expand or shrink with diet and exercise behaviors.

+ What kind of results can I expect?

Clients will realize a reduction in the fat layer of the treated areas within two to four months after the procedure. After the fat cells undergo a natural cell death, through crystallization during the actual treatment, the process of elimination from the body happens over time.

Because the process is gradual, the skin has an opportunity to adjust and restore elasticity. In addition, the cold-infusion stimulates both collagen and elastin production to help tighten the skin at the treatment area(s).

+ What does a CoolSculpting treatment feel like?

Anything related to touch and feel is subjective which, in turn, dictates different responses from client to client. The best way to describe a level of expectation on how the experience feels is to state that each treatment and each area treated can prompt varied sensations.

The practitioners of CHRONOS have conducted over 15,000 treatments. Our clients describe the treatments as encompassing light-to-mild and tolerable levels of discomfort. Some experience tightness and cramping at the treatment site area(s). Others express feeling numbing, stinging, itchiness or cramping at the site area(s) in the days or weeks after the treatment but nothing bothersome during the procedure.

Although the sensations associated with each procedure may differ, a consistent resolution exists—not a single client feels their experience during or after the treatment is not worth the result.

+ How do I know if I'm a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Designed for individuals who have diet and exercise resistant fat, CoolSculpting is ideal for those within 5 to 35 pounds of their target weight. If you are frustrated with stubborn fat and want to reshape and contour those less than loveable parts, CoolSculpting may be the answer.

Many individuals who fall outside of the target weight range begin with a diet and exercise plan. As they begin to lose weight and get closer to the target weight range, CoolSculpting can be an integral part of the overall plan to look and feel better and improve confidence. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Chronos today to learn if you are a good candidate.

+ Is this treatment only for women?

No. Men and women choose non-invasive aesthetic procedures to help them look and feel better. Body fat, the desire to remove it and the treatment is not gender-specific. To provide a more man-friendly environment for fat loss, Chronos boasts the treatment room known as the ManCave. Where love handles, man boobs and more are reduced while watching your favorite sports and action flicks, playing video games and reading guy magazines. And best of all, the treatment visits are always done in confidence. So they never make it to locker room gossip unless you choose to brag about your fantastic results!
