Over the past few years, the procedure known as CoolSculpting has become one of the most talked about treatments in the aesthetic services world. The process is designed to help freeze, and eliminate small pockets of fat cells in the body and it is able to do so without damaging the skin or tissue surrounding the fat cell.

The process is backed by years of research and the proven science of Cryolipolysis. Today it is helping countless individuals get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat and to finally get the body they have always dreamed of. The procedure is safe, precise and effective, which is why this procedure has become a true phenomenon in the medical world.

So, how do you know if you are a good candidate for this type of procedure? Here are some considerations to take first: 


CoolScuplting is safe and effective for both males and females 18 years and older, which is why you will find patients of every gender raving about the effects of this treatment.

Those Who Diet and Exercise

If you are exercising and eating healthy on a regular basis, then you are a great candidate for CoolSculpting. This procedure is designed for those who already have a healthy lifestyle and want to target stubborn fat.

Pregnant Women

It is important to note that pregnant women are not ideal candidates for this procedure. This is because a pregnant woman’s body needs to be focused on developing the fetus inside her body and the body needs fat cells. Scientists want to keep women’s bodies as safe and as healthy as possible when they are pregnant which is why significant studies on the effects of fat freezing have not been done on women who are pregnant.

Lifestyle Factors

CoolScuplting is great for men and women who want to get rid of stubborn or unsightly fat. This procedure is meant to target problem areas that don’t go away with diet and exercise. Individuals who are significantly overweight (morbidly obese) or still continuing to gain weight, should start with lifestyle changes first. When you are already eating healthy and exercising, the CoolScultping procedure will be much more effective. 

Recent Surgery Patients

If you have recently undergone surgery, especially in the treatment area, it is best to wait for the CoolScuplting process. It may take a few months or a few weeks, depending on the individual and the type of surgery. However, waiting until the body is strong enough to handle the treatment is always best for the patient.


Many people assume that freezing off fat is an instant process and that they will walk out of the office inches and pounds thinner. While CoolSculpting is an effective solution, it does not have immediate results. After the procedure has been performed, the body goes to work and actually removes the fat using its own waste systems. The best results are typically seen between 4-12 weeks after treatment.
