How Many Coolsculpting Treatments are Needed?

Every Coolsculpting procedure can lead up to a 25% reduction in the size of the fatty area treated.  So, if you are seeking a more than 25% reduction, a Coolsculpting procedure would need to be repeated.  This can be done anywhere from 2-4 months after the initial treatment.

What are the Side Effects of Coolsculpting on the Stomach?

Normal side effects of Coolsculpting on the stomach include redness, numbness, swelling and occasionally some discomfort.  Usually, all of these side effects resolve in a few days to weeks.

Is Coolsculpting Covered by Insurance?

No.  Coolsculpting is considered a cosmetic procedure and would not be covered by traditional health insurance.  However, Beleza Medspa does offer no-interest financing through CareCredit.

What are Coolsculpting Pros and Cons?

The Pros of Coolsculpting are that it is noninvasive, performed in office, no anesthesia is required, can take as little as 35 minutes, and there is no downtime.  The Cons of Coolsculpting are that results are limited to a 25% reduction in the fatty layer, it can’t sculpt the fat layer or transfer the fat and it can only treat areas that the applicator can fit.

Does Coolsculpting Work on the Arms?

Yes.  Coolsculpting works great to reduce pinchable fat on the arms.

How Much Does Coolsculpting Cost for the Stomach?

It depend on the areas of the stomach and the results desired.  The stomach is divided into upper and lower areas and each may require a separate treatment.  Additionally, larger fat layers will require larger applicators and further treatments.  A free consultation is required to determine a personalized quote.

How Much Does Coolsculpting usually Cost?

As Coolsculpting Prices reflect the cost of the applicators which can run from $800-$1600, one can expect to spend several thousand dollars for an effective Coolsculpting procedure.  In terms of the results delivered, Coolsculpting can actually be a bargain.

Does Coolsculpting Actually Work?

Yes.  Coolsculpting has been performed millions of times and is the gold standard for noninvasive fat reduction.  Coolsculpting is proven technology that freezes fat cells in a controlled fashion, causing the body to remove them.  How does Coolsculpting work?

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

This is a great question.  As Coolsculpting can only reduce up to 25% of fat per session, patients who are seeking more reduction may find the Coolsculpting price too high.  Liposuction offers the ability to remove a large amount of fat in one session and also offers body sculpting and fat transfer.  So, for many patients, liposuction vs coolsculpting may be the better alternative.
