The Most Popular Treatment to Slim Down before Your Wedding Day

Weddings can be stressful, but looking great on your wedding day shouldn’t be. For brides — and grooms! — sometimes following a proper diet and heading to the gym can only go so far. For those stubborn areas of fat (you know, the ones that won’t respond to diet and exercise), CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical option that actually freezes fat away.

The ideal treatment for people who are close to their target weight, but struggle with small areas of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to destroy and flush out fat cells. It’s not a weight-loss procedure, but rather a noninvasive body contouring procedure perfect for targeting love handles, lower abs or inner thighs before the honeymoon. Or even targeting a double chin or arm fat for a more toned, sculpted appearance as you walk down the aisle.

It’s the only FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells, and brides are falling in love! In fact, on, analysts looked at a year’s worth of reviews that mention the keywords “wedding” or “getting married,” and ranked the treatments based on their percentage of total reviews. CoolSculpting® came in as the No. 2 cosmetic treatment during wedding season (right behind Invisalign), and that could be for a few reasons:

  1. It’s non-invasive. CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical alternative to procedures like liposuction, and is designed to target localized areas of fat in people who are otherwise healthy.

  2. It’s safe, and virtually painless. More than 7 million treatments have been done worldwide! And although you might feel intense cold initially, that will subside as the numbing kicks in. The treatments last 30-40 minutes, and during it, you can read, check email or even take a nap!   

  3. Minimal Downtime. Hint, you can even do it on your lunch break! Planning a wedding takes time. Those after-work meetings with the planner or caterer can cut into free-time, so quick and effective treatment plans are key. Although rare, you might see temporary redness, swelling or tenderness, but these effects are short-lived and should be resolved within days or weeks. Plus, after the treatment, you’re free to resume all regular activity.

  4. You Can Target Specific Areas. CoolSculpting® can be used anywhere excess fat is found! But it’s especially effective at treating arm fat, bra rolls, love handles, thighs, chest and even double chins.

Keep in mind that CoolSculpting® works best when done in a series of treatments — most patients see results after a two or more treatments on a specific area. These must be spaced out by several weeks, and because you can expect to see results 2 to 3 months after treatment, scheduling around wedding festivities is vital.
