Making the decision to get any sort of aesthetic treatment, including CoolSculpting, usually involves a hefty amount of research. A deep dive into what CoolSculpting is, how fat freezing works, and the areas it can treat are all extremely helpful to the decision process. For many people, though, the ultimate deciding factor is often hearing from others who have already tried the treatment.
[Editor’s note: The CoolSculpting treatment is a non-invasive fat-freezing treatment that effectively reduces fat in certain self-proclaimed “problem spots” in the submental and submandibular areas, thigh, abdomen, flank, and upper arm, along with bra fat, back fat, and underneath the buttocks (you know, those bulges that just won’t go away, regardless of how much you sweat it out on the treadmill). While it isn’t a weight loss solution, fat-freezing can reduce pouches of fat. As with any procedure, there are risks and side effects, so talk to a licensed provider to see if it’s right for you.]
If you’re considering CoolSculpting, but are on the fence — and want to hear testimonials from people who have tried it before making the plunge — read on. We asked six people around the country to share why they ultimately decided to get CoolSculpting, and whether the chilly treatment lived up to their expectations.
The patient: Brianna*, 29
The location: New York, NY
The provider: Y. Claire Chang, MD at Union Square Laser Dermatology℠
The areas treated: Thighs, abdomen, flanks
The backstory: Brianna had such a positive experience with her first CoolSculpting treatment, in March 2018, that she has been back two more times for other body parts since.
