How much does CoolSculpting procedure cost?

Every patient’s treatment plan is customised, making body sculpting procedures with CoolSculpting highly individual. Taking into account all the variable factors for price calculation, we cannot provide the price range.

You will be informed of the final price for your treatment plan during the consultation, once the priority treatment areas and the number of required treatments are defined.

How soon can I return to normal activities after treatment?

The CoolSculpting procedure is non-surgical – typically you can return to your daily activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day after the procedure.

How soon will I see the results?

First changes can be seen as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment. The most dramatic results are observed after 2 months. Your body will continue to process and flush out the fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after your CoolSculpting treatment.

Do I need to follow a strict diet and exercise program?

No, CoolSculpting is not a diet and exercise programme – you will not have to change any of your lifestyle habits.

What happens if I gain weight after CoolSculpting procedure?

In case you do gain weight after your procedures, it will be gained evenly all over your body, not in the treated areas alone. The results will still be noticeable

What should I do after my CoolSculpting procedure?

Make sure to schedule a follow-up appointment for reviewing your results. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will ensure the best results in long-term!

Is CoolSculpting safe?

CoolSculpting is the No. 1 non-invasive procedure for fat reduction. With 60+ clinical studies and over 4 million procedures performed worldwide, it is proven to be both effective and safe.

What happens to fat cells? Are the results permanent?

During the treatment, the fat cells are frozen (crystallised); the cells then die and the body naturally processes and eliminates them. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
