Who is a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting?

coolsculpting treatment

There is a reason why people are interested in a CoolSculpting treatment. Many people have gotten great results from CoolSculpting, and body shaping in general. The body shaping market is huge. In fact, according to Hospitality insights, the body shaping segment accounted for one-fifth of the overall market. One reason why the segment has boomed so significantly is that there are now a variety of different non-invasive techniques available, which allow people to shape their bodies without being hospitalized or risking serious complications. CoolSculpting is one of those non-invasive techniques. Nevertheless, not everyone is a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Let’s explore what makes a person a good candidate for CoolSculpting treatment.

1. Is Your Fat Pinchable?

The reason why people seek out CoolSculpting is usually that they want to get rid of unwanted fat. But you need to consider in particular whether or not your fat is pinchable. CoolSculpting will typically target pinchable fat, which lies above the muscle. Usually, pinchable fat is what we would call subcutaneous fat, which is jiggly and directly under the skin. You’ll often find this in your upper arm areas. Visceral fat, on the other hand, is below the muscle usually found in the abdominal cavity. Visceral fat cannot be targeted by CoolSculpting.

2. Are You Seeking Serious Weight Loss?

Please keep in mind that CoolSculpting treatment is meant for candidates who want to contour their bodies. It is not meant for people who want or need to lose a significant amount of weight. Usually, people who are approved for CoolSculpting have a BMI of 30 or below and want to target “problem” areas, like the upper arms. However, some people who have a BMI above 30 and are happy with their bodies can still benefit from CoolSculpting. They just shouldn’t expect to lose a huge amount of weight via the procedure.

3. Can You Wait for Results?

Another factor to consider is whether or not you have time to wait for results. Typically, at least three months. CoolSculpting results are slow to reveal themselves. While some people do see results in as little as three weeks, many people need to wait three months before they see a big difference.

If this sounds like you, then you may be a great candidate for CoolSculpting! Just make sure that you are receiving CoolSculpting treatment from reliable, proven professionals.

They were super friendly and were very patient with me since I was nervous. They gave good advice and my procedure was not stressful at all. And two weeks later, I looked awesome.
I was very happy with the service I received from Skin & Sculpt Medical Spa. The staff was amazing & I couldn’t have asked for a friendlier, knowledgeable & more accommodating group of people. The office was beautifully decorated & the facility was very clean. I highly recommend Skin & Sculpt Medical Spa.
I have been going to Skin and Sculpt for a few years. I’ve had botox, filler, micro needling, and the laser and I’m always pleased with my results. I love all the ladies there, they are so sweet and always make you feel like a 10 out of 10!
Tammy and her staff give the best advice and she takes her time on a natural look if that's what you're looking for. 100% stand behind their work. Can't wait to have my lips touched up again soon, it's been over 2 years! Yes, they've lasted that long!

My favorite med spa ever. Sarah at the front, amazing. Erin with my facials, fantastic. Tammy with my Botox! Love it all.
The entire office makes me feel so comfortable when getting something new done, and they are understanding if I feel woozy ( I hate being that person 😅). I'd highly recommend them for injectables of any sort. They take time to answer your questions and the results are fantastic.
