You’ve probably heard about it on the news or read about it in a magazine: CoolSculpting, the coolest new trend in non-invasive weight loss procedures. Fat-reduction technology is booming right now. With new procedures marketed under names like Venus Freeze and Emsculpt, it can be hard to decide which is right for you.
Sometimes, the best advice comes from the experts—and not the ones in lab coats. Real accounts from people who have actually undergone fat-freezing procedures can provide you with insight.
Here are some helpful CoolSculpting reviews to give you real information on what the procedure is like—from start to finish.
Based on what your goals are, the price will vary from patient to patient. CoolSculpting’s cost depends (partly) on how many applicators are used. Many places will offer a package deal for multiple applicators.
Check out what these customers have to say about the cost of CoolSculpting:
- “Costing around $1600 and ranges as high as $4000 for treatments. Doctors highly recommend having more than one treatment to see results.” –Stephanie, Esthetician
- “I had treatment on my chin and two treatments on my abdomen. Cost is usually based on the applicator rather than per session. Ideally, you should have 2 sessions to obtain the best results.” –Kirbie, Medical Spa Employee
So overall, is Coolsculpting worth it?
According to Sarah, a Licesnsed Esthetician, “ Perfect way to get rid of stubborn fat that you having trouble losing. A non-invasive procedure to help tone up areas that are problematic.”
Maybe you’ve seen it on Amazon or in your local big box store: CoolSculpting at-home machines are available, but do they really work?
It is important to note here that true CoolSculpting can only be done in a medical office by a professional. At-home machines use a similar fat-freezing method but are not FDA-approved.
That being said, for the most popular machine, called the Isavera Fat Freezing system, many of the Amazon reviews are positive.
Many of the negative reviews focus on inconsistent results or difficulty in using the product.
Overall, it’s important to do your own research before jumping on the bandwagon for the best fat freezing machines review
CoolSculpting can target just about any area, including those that may be missed by traditional cosmetic surgery.
“Has the ability to reduce back fat and love handles, which are areas that I have always struggled with.” – Grace, Elementary School Teacher
In a clinical study done on CoolSculpting, over 75% of patients were satisfied with results on their arms after three months.
“I have never been happy with my arms, so this was the area that I wanted to work on first. The procedure was tolerable and the results were amazing!” – Carol, Office Manager
Overall, patients tend to be satisfied with how easy the procedure is. Many describe feeling strange or uncomfortable, but very few report true feelings of pain to the point that they would stop the procedure.
