Still not sure if you’re a good candidate? Zeltiq, the provider of Coolsculpting technology, has a 5-part questionnaire to give you more insight.
Let’s review the questions and see if Coolsculpting is right for you!
Are you male or female?
How you answer this question does not affect your candidacy, since the Coolsculpting procedure works for both men and women. However, men and women tend to store fat in different areas of the body, and providing this information before booking a consultation or treatment is always helpful for the Coolsculpting expert.
Where do you want to reshape your body?
Coolsculpting is designed to remove stubborn fat and sculpt your body to achieve your desired results. There are different applicators designed to treat specific areas where fat bulges tend to occurs.
Have you ever had a cosmetic procedure to improve your appearance?
This is another question will not affect your candidacy, but provides important insight for the Coolsculpting. If you have any history of cosmetic procedures, it is important to mention this during your consultation.
Would you consider having a non-surgical fat reduction treatment?
Are you interested in a non-invasive procedure? (No needles, no anesthesia, no surgery)
In a procedure that is safe and effective? (FDA cleared, 20-25% of reduction in fat cells)
In a procedure that has no down-time? (Whether it’s work, school, or some other activity – you will not have to put your life on hold with Coolsculpting. There is no down-time!)
If you answered YES to all or most of these questions – you’re looking in the right place!
Are you generally within 30 lbs. or 13.6 kg. of your ideal weight but have areas of excess fat?
This is an important question to ask yourself in order to decide if Coolsculpting is right for you. Consider why are you interested in fat reduction, is it to lose weight or because you have a specific area of fat that bothers you? This distinction is very important because Coolsculpting is meant to reduce fat in a specific area – it is not a weight loss procedure.
