FAQs

Coolsculpting is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the Coolsculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Coolsculpting is the non invasive alternative to liposuction.
The body has a certain number of fat cells, the size of which is increased or decreased as we gain or lose weight. The Coolsculpting treatment REDUCES the number of fat cells at the area at a percentage of 20 to 25%! Fat cells are eliminated naturally from our body and never come back! The result? Fat cells are gone for good!
Not all Coolsculpting procedures are the same - neither do they offer the same effectiveness.
In our medical clinic we have ALL state-of-the-art applicators accompanying Coolsculpting. Each applicator has its own unique shape and size, and it is designed so that to “embrace” precisely specific body areas (flanks, chin, abdomen, and others). Selecting the right type of applicator, the number of applicators used, the way they will be placed, as well as the number of sessions that will be decided during the initial individualized treatment plan will determine the final Result to Create the Perfect Shape on your Body (Liposculpture). Our methodology combines Mapping (3D assessment of areas with local fat) and Sculpture (placement of the applicators on the optimal performance areas) to ensure the best possible utilization of all Coolsculpting features.
When fat cells are exposed to cold, at a temperature of -9°C in particular, they are safely destroyed and die naturally. Within a few weeks after treatment, your body will eliminate fat cells for good through the natural process of metabolism. Once local fat goes, it goes for good! It is also worth noting that Coolsculpting destroys exclusively the fat cells, without affecting the surrounding tissues (skin, vessels, etc.). It is a safe and approved method.
Yes. One session is enough on each area to achieve a 20-40% reduction of fat cells. If you want to remove more fat, you can have additional sessions. Of course, this depends on your weight, your body, fat distribution, and the final result you want to achieve. This is why, before every treatment, a free appointment is scheduled to assess your needs and the possible results.
You just need 1 treatment in each area with local fat! During your visit, we will develop together an individualized treatment plan, adapted to your goals. Treatment duration and the number of CoolSculpting sessions will differ depending on the number of areas with local fat you want to be treated. With the new CoolSculpting applicators we can treat an area with local fat on your body in just 35-60 minutes. However, the duration of your visit will be determined by the number of areas with local fat that we will treat. For instance, if we want to treat 2 areas (e.g. love handles or 2 areas on your abdomen) we will need approximately one and a half to two hours.
The results are already visible from the 3rd week after your treatment! During the following 2 months you will experience the most dramatic change, while the 100% of the result will be evident 4 months after treatment, since your body will be still “working”, flushing out the fat cells!
The results are PERMANENT. Once fat cells are eliminated by the organism, they never come back!
There is no downtime! After the end of the treatment you can return to normal activities. It is suggested to avoid exercise and treatments utilizing heat for 24 hours after treatment to avoid any mild adverse effects on the treatment.
It can treat all areas with local fat on your body. The most commonly treated areas are: Abdomen, Love handles, Gynecomastia in men, and Thighs, Double chin, Arms and Legs in women.
Many people, after seeing the CoolSculpting results, feel even more motivated to stay close to their ideal weight. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold that is absolutely tolerable on the area. This feeling soon dissipates, as the area starts going numb within 5 to 10 minutes after treatment initiation. The treatment is so “easy” and tolerable that most patients enjoy it while they watch TV, read, work on their laptop or they are just take a nap!
Coolsculpting is an absolutely safe treatment, acting exclusively on local fat, without affecting the surrounding tissues (skin, vessels, etc.). Coolsculpting, as all medical treatments, may have side effects on certain people. Numbness of the area is one of them. Often a tingling sensation is evident at the area after treatment. In addition, you may notice redness in the area or, more rarely, bruising.
All these reactions are absolutely normal and safe, and they resolve really quickly.
Coolsculpting has been available since October 2009 and until now more than 140,000 treatments have been performed worldwide. The clinical studies that have been carried out since May 2006 demonstrate both the effectiveness and the safety of the procedure.
CoolSculpting is the only cryolipolysis treatment that has been cleared by the strict FDA (US Food & Drug Administration). It is absolutely safe in reducing local fat throughout the body. It is considered the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure with millions of CoolSculpting procedures performed worldwide. Coolsculpting is an absolutely safe treatment, as it targets exclusively local fat, leaving nearby tissues (skin, vessels, nerves, organs) intact.
Like all medical treatments, CoolSculpting is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria). It is also important to know that CoolSculpting is not a method to manage obesity. As with any other medical treatment, our physician, Dr Christos Stamou, after obtaining your complete medical history and after examining you, will decide whether CoolSculpting is right for you.
