How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

If you are trying to decide if CoolSculpting is a suitable option for you, the cost is an important consideration.  Before making a decision, it will be helpful to take the time to learn about the factors that affect the total cost of treatment.   So how much does CoolSculpting cost?

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses a system of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis to freeze away unwanted fat.  It is a safe, effective treatment that delivers consistent results. 

CoolSculpting helps get rid of stubborn, unwanted pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, so it is not a weight loss solution.  

How Does It Work?

The CoolSculpting system selectively targets fat cells, which are more vulnerable to cold than other types of tissue.  The cold temperature freezes the fat cells, causing them to crystalize and die.  The treated cells are naturally processed and disposed of by the body over the following weeks, resulting in a noticeable improvement in body contours. 

CoolSculpting does not require any downtime so patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.   However, some patients may experience mild redness, bruising, and swelling after CoolSculpting, but these side-effects typically resolve within a few days. 

The full results of CoolSculpting can be seen 1-3 months after treatment. 

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA cleared to treat the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, under the chin and jawline, as well as back fat, bra fat, and underneath the buttocks (banana roll).

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting ranges from $750 – $1,250 per session.  A complete treatment plan can cost between $2,000 and $4,000.  The price varies based on the size of the area being treated and the number of sessions required.

CoolSculpting treatment is customized to fit the unique aesthetic goals of each patient.  Therefore, the overall cost will differ significantly between patients.

Other factors that can affect the price of CoolSculpting include, the number of areas being treated, the experience of the provider, and the location of the practice.  The type and size of the CoolSculpting applicator used will also influence the cost. 

If you would like to get an accurate cost of your CoolSculpting treatment, it’s best to schedule an in-office consultation with an experienced provider.  The provider will evaluate your areas of concern and create a customized plan based on your body contouring goals.  

Does Medical Insurance Cover The Cost Of CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure, so the cost is not covered by insurance.   However, some providers offer package discounts to patients treating multiple areas to make the procedure more affordable. 

CoolSculpting is an affordable alternative to surgical fat reduction for the right candidate.  However, candidates should be at their ideal weight and have isolated pockets of fat that need treatment.    

Is CoolSculpting Worth It?

Most patients who undergo CoolSculpting agree that it’s worth the cost because it provides proven, long-lasting improvements in body shape and size.  A single CoolSculpting session can reduce fat in the targeted area by 20-25%, and most patients only need one session to achieve the results they desire.  

The fat destroyed during CoolSculpting is gone for good, but if patients gain weight after treatment, the remaining fat cells will expand.  However, it is possible to maintain the results of CoolSculpting by adopting a healthy diet and getting regular exercise.

If you have bulging fat on your abdomen or thighs that you would like to get rid of, CoolSculpting may be the ideal option for you.  

CoolSculpting is a celebrated body contouring treatment that reduces excess fat gently and effectively, and enhances body contours.
