CoolSculpting for the arms is a non-invasive body contouring technique that targets excess subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat is just below the skin and is stored there as an emergency source of energy, making it very difficult to remove. Many people find that even exercise and diet cannot rid them of these fat stores. The upper arms are a very difficult spot to target with exercise alone.

For many people, that area is the upper arms, especially as we age or experience life events such as pregnancy or weight-loss.

About CoolSculpting in Portland
CoolSculpting is an excellent solution if you are looking for a long-lasting solution to help slim your arms. After countless hours doing dumbbell exercises or monitoring calories, the excess fat on your arms may not budge. CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive technology that has shown to reduce fat in the arms up to 25% after each CoolSculpting session.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting utilizes cryolipolysis to get rid of fat on the upper arms. The CoolSculpting technology freezes the pinchable fat below the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment. You don’t have to worry about incisions, anesthesia, preparation, downtime, or long-lasting scars.

Is Arm CoolSculpting Right for Me?
Ideal patients should intend to maintain their healthy lifestyles during and after CoolSculpting treatment to maintain their great results. Please note, CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure; it’s a body sculpting technique.
This non-invasive procedure is great for people looking to avoid surgery. CoolSculpting is convenient and requires no downtime. Individuals with a busy lifestyle, family or demanding job are a perfect fit!
During the Procedure
Your arms will be cleansed and a gel pad and applicator will be applied to your target area. You can sit back and relax as the CoolSculpting technology goes to work freezing unwanted fat.
You may experience mild pulling, tingling, and/or cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb during the procedure. The feelings are well-tolerated by patients. You can read, watch television, or even take a quick cat nap while your arms are being treated.
After a 30-60 minute session, the applicators and gel pads will be removed. You will receive a gentle massage in your arms to help breakdown the fat deposits, aiding your body in removing the treated cells. You are free to go about the rest of your day after a CoolSculpting treatment.
After your CoolSculpting procedure, you may experience redness and tingling on your arms. These should subside within 24 hours after treatment. Otherwise, you will be able to resume normal activity immediately after each CoolSculpting session. Little to no downtime is necessary with CoolSculpting!
It is important to closely follow your CoolSculpting treatment plan to ensure your best results. You may begin noticing results in about 3 weeks, with final results enduring 2 to 3 months after treatment. The best way to maintain healthy, slim arms is to stay at a consistent weight. Stay active and eat a healthy diet to enjoy your results for a long time.

What happens to the fat after CoolSculpting?
Following CoolSculpting treatment, the destroyed fat cells are flushed from the body by the lymphatic system. You may experience increased bowel movements and urination after CoolSculpting. This is your body’s natural way of removing the excess waste produced by the damaged cells.
Will the fat return if I gain weight?
During puberty, your body has a certain number of fat cells that will not fluctuate much as you get older. When you gain weight, the fat cells swell and once you lose weight the fat cells shrink. With CoolSculpting, your body rids itself of the treated fat cells, lowering the number of fat cells you have in the treated area. But, your existing fat cells can still expand so it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
How many sessions of CoolSculpting are necessary for the arms?
Many patients generally need two sessions, but depending on the goals of the patient and the amount of fat present, more treatments may be needed. Your CoolSculpting specialist will create the perfect treatment plan for you and your body goals.
