How much does CoolSculpting cost? The cost of CoolSculpting can vary widely depending on the area treated, the size of the applicators used, the number of applicators or sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. CoolSculpting prices also depend on your geographic location. For example, in Los Angeles the regular price for a single CoolSculpting treatment ranges from $800-$1500 per area. At our Los Angeles office, we occasionally run promotions and specials which can lower the CoolSculpting costs to around $600-$1200 per area. Package pricing is also available.
Though the cost of CoolSculpting can vary depending on the size of the area being treated, there is usually a standard range of pricing for CoolSculpting. This is because Zeltiq, the company that manufactures the CoolSculpting device, has created recommended pricing guidelines to be used by all approved providers. If any CoolSculpting provider goes below the recommended prices, they will face penalties from Zeltiq. These penalties include, but are not limited to, a loss of support.
Because the prices of CoolSculpting can be so different for treating the same area in the same city, you may be wondering if you should simply go to the cheapest place. But, generally, we would advise against this, as those offering very low prices for CoolSculpting often have very little experience doing the treatment. It’s important to remember that the CoolSculpting device itself is a tool which produces different results in different hands. When choosing a CoolSculpting center for your treatment, you should choose a physician who has extensive experience performing CoolSculpting treatments on various areas of the body. This will ensure that you get the best possible results for the money that you spend.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost For Different Areas of the Body?
So how much can CoolSculpting cost for the different areas of the body? What range of prices should you expect? Browse the sections below to learn about how much CoolSculpting can cost for the stomach, the chin, the thighs, the arms, the neck, and the love handles.
CoolSculpting Cost Stomach: $1,200 - $5,200
The cost of CoolSculpting for the stomach has the widest variation. CoolSculpting for the stomach can cost anywhere from $1,200 to $5,200. This wide range of pricing happens because the cost of CoolSculpting will vary depending on the size of the treatment area, the size of the applicators used, and the number of applicators need for treatment. The stomach is one of the largest areas treatable by CoolSculpting and it also often requires the use of the largest CoolSculpting applicators. Additionally, for best results, the use of multiple sizes of CoolSculpting applicators can be necessary when targeting stomach fat. For example, different applicators may work best to target overhanging belly fat, large areas of fat around the abdomen, or for any small areas of tummy fat.
CoolSculpting Cost Chin: $600 - $1,200
CoolSculpting for treating a double chin or other chin fat has one of the lower pricing ranges. This is due to the smaller area of treatment and the smaller size of the CoolMini, the CoolSculpting applicator used to treat the chin. Generally, the price of CoolSculpting for the chin ranges from $600 to $1,200.
CoolSculpting Cost Thighs: $1,500
CoolSculpting can be used for fat reduction on both the inner thighs and the outer thighs. CoolSculpting for the this medium-sized treatment area costs around $1,500.

CoolSculpting Cost Love Handles: $1,200 - $2,400
CoolSculpting for the love handles can range higher in price than other areas due to the large surface area being treated and the larger applicator used. The price of CoolSculpting for the love handles can range from $1,200 to $2,400.
FAQ About CoolSculpting Prices and CoolSculpting
Q: Can you give me exact pricing for CoolSculpting over the phone or through email?
A: While we can give some general estimates for what certain types of CoolSculpting usually cost, we can’t give you exact pricing for your treatment without having you come in for a consultation. This is because the price of CoolSculpting varies depending on the number of treatments you may need and which applicators you may need for optimal results. When you come in for a consultation appointment with Dr. Zadeh, he will examine your body, learn your treatment goals, then develop a treatment plan to help you reach them. The prices of each patient’s treatment plan will vary depending on their goals and their unique body.
Q: What is CoolSculpting?
A: CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat freezing treatment used for body contouring. It is an excellent treatment for reducing body fat, especially stubborn fat that cannot be lost with weight loss or exercise.
Q: How does CoolSculpting work?
A: CoolSculpting reduces body fat through crypolipolysis, the freezing of fat cells. During a CoolSculpting treatment, the CoolSculpting applicator targets and freezes fat cells. The body then breaks down these frozen fat cells and naturally removes them from the body. The fat reduction caused by CoolSculpting is permanent, provided you do not gain weight after treatment.
Q: What is getting CoolSculpting like?
During a CoolSculpting session, the CoolSculpting applicator will be applied to your targeted treatment area. During this process, you can simply sit back and relax. Since the CoolSculpting applicator eliminates fat cells by freezing them, you will experience a cold sensation during CoolSculpting. Some patients experience discomfort during treatment but usually discomfort lessens after the treatment area becomes numb. The treatment time for each patient will vary depending on how much time is needed to achieve their desired results. But, generally, each CoolSculpting treatment takes a minimum of 60 minutes.
Q: Is CoolSculpting the same thing as liposuction?
A: No. Both CoolSculpting and liposuction are treatments that can remove fat from the body. But liposuction is a surgical procedure that is painful, invasive, and requires a long period of recovery time. CoolSculpting is non-invasive, non-surgical, and requires minimal to no downtime after treatment.
Q: Is CoolSculpting safe?
A: Yes! CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA-approved fat removal treatment.
Q: What are the side effects of CoolSculpting?
A: Typical side effects of CoolSculpting include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity.
