SECRET BODY HENDERSON COOLSCULPTING® FAQ
What is CoolSculpting / How does it work?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to selectively reduce stubborn fat using a patented cooling technology. It is a safe procedure cleared by the FDA that gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. This reduces fat in treated areas of the body without harming surrounding tissues.
Who is the ideal candidate for CoolSculpting?
It’s for men and women. CoolSculpting is not intended as a weight-reduction program for overweight individuals. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are people at or near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly and have stubborn fat that does not respond to a healthy lifestyle. They are seeking fat reduction but are not considering surgical procedure. Every patient is unique, which is why we recommend a comprehensive and customized procedure plan as part of the initial Secret Body Henderson consultation. With a customized treatment plan, patients can achieve dramatic results with this non-surgical procedure.
What type of results can one expect?
Patients who get CoolSculpting done at Secret Body Henderson can expect to see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area, an average of 20-23%. And the treated fat cells are gone for good. If patients maintain a healthy lifestyle, the results of their procedure are long lasting and durable. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may help enhance the desired aesthetic effect.
How much does it cost at Secret Body Henderson?
The cost depends on the individual patient’s CoolSculpting procedure plan;
however, the range is approximately $750-$1,500 for each treated area at Secret Body Henderson.
Who designed CoolSculpting? How did it come to be?
The CoolSculpting procedure developed by ZELTIQ® is based on sound scientific technology called Cryolipolysis®. Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by Drs. Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Their initial work, first published in the peer-reviewed professional journal Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, demonstrated that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. These Harvard studies and other research from centers of excellence confirmed that fat cells, when exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, undergo cell death and a gradual fat layer reduction through a process called “apoptosis.”
How does the procedure work exactly?
During the CoolSculpting procedure at Secret Body Henderson, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat, leaving surface skin and other surrounding tissue unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural cell death is triggered and the dead cells are naturally removed, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated area. Every patient is unique, which is why we recommend a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may help enhance the desired aesthetic effect.
Talk about the design of the machine and the different parts and what they do. The CoolSculpting system includes a control unit with a touch-screen, and four applicators that are optimized to fit different shapes and sizes. It is the only cold-based, non-invasive body contouring treatment with patented built-in safety measures including Freeze DetectTM. Gel pads protect the skin and ensure proper thermal coupling. Disposable plastic liners protect the applicator from gel contact, and programmed cards are inserted into the applicators to authenticate cycles.Explain what exactly happens to the fat cells in the body and how they go away.

How is this different than liposuction?
The results of a CoolSculpting treatment are not as rapid as invasive procedures such as liposuction. However, if you want to avoid the pain during treatment, risk and recovery time associated with surgical procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting may be the preferred option.
What are the risks?
There is very minimal risk due to the non-invasive nature of CoolSculpting. After the procedure some patients experience redness, tingling, minor bruising or numbers in the treated areas, but this is temporary. Please consult your doctor for full details. No pain medication is required during treatment. Results and patient experiences may vary.What does CoolSculpting feel like? How long does it take?
When the applicator is first applied to the skin, it feels a little like a “tugging” sensation and you start to feel the cold. Each area treated takes approximately one hour. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may help enhance the desired aesthetic effect.
Is it a one-time thing or is it something you do several times?
Patients who get CoolSculpting done can expect to see a noticeable reduction in the treated area, an average of 20-23%. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may help enhance the desired aesthetic effect. Every patient is unique, which is why we recommend a comprehensive and customized procedure plan as part of the initial consultation at Secret Body Henderson. If patients maintain a healthy lifestyle, the results of their procedure are long lasting and durable.
What is the downtime?
CoolSculpting involves no needles or surgery resulting in no downtime. Since the CoolSculpting procedure is non-surgical, patients typically resume daily activities, including work and exercise, immediately following treatment at Secret Body Henderson.
How long does it take and how long does it last?
Each CoolSculpting procedure lasts one to two hours, so the treatment can easily be performed without major disruption to the day. A patient’s customized treatment plan determines exactly how many treatments are needed to achieve the desired result. Following the procedure, if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle through eating and exercise, the results of the procedures are long lasting and durable.
Does the weight come right back on?
Actually, to clarify...CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. Patients do not lose weight and that should not be an expectation. They reduce fat bulges/pockets in certain areas on their body which, from what patients have told us, results in their clothes fitting much better, they look better or go down in clothing size. Following the CoolSculpting treatment, if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle through eating and exercise, the results of the procedure are long lasting and durable.
Is this procedure for women, or are men having it done as well?
Yes. In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that the number of men having plastic surgery increased 121% in the last 15 years. Many of my colleagues across the country have reported seeing an increase in the number of male patients requesting CoolSculpting. One practice in particular reports that men account for 42% of their CoolSculpting patient population.
How popular has this noninvasive procedure been?
CoolSculpting is extremely popular. There are approximately 2,200 CoolSculpting systems throughout the world and over one million treatments have been performed worldwide.
How long ago did this get FDA cleared?
CoolSculpting received FDA clearance for fat reduction of the flank (also known as love handle or muffin top) area in September 2010, and for the abdomen (also known as spare tire or belly pooch) in May 2012.
Would you use this on yourself?
Yes, absolutely. CoolSculpting is the solution for those of us who simply want to look better and have stubborn fat that does not go away no matter how much we diet and exercise. In addition, the popularity of non-invasive procedures continues to grow year after year, which is why we offer CoolSculpting at Secret Body Henderson.
Secret Body Henderson's CoolSculpting Experience
The latest trend aesthetic specialists are seeing is a new generation of treatments and procedures targeted toward the growing population of people looking for non-surgical ways to better themselves. This is particularly true for fat reduction therapies that help patients transform their bodies.
The CoolSculpting® procedure is a breakthrough procedure that safely and effectively eliminates fat without the cost, downtime and risk associated with surgery. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction that use heat, the CoolSculpting procedure cools fat cells to temperatures that trigger their natural death. Those cells are then eliminated naturally by the body over the following weeks and months. During the procedure at Secret Body Henderson, a non-surgical applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to selectively target treated fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue such as the skin unaffected.
The CoolSculpting procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated area and patients at Secret Body Henderson can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months. Every patient is unique, which is why ZELTIQ recommends a customized procedure plan as part of the initial consultation at Secret Body Henderson. After the initial treatment is complete, patients can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss.
