Although this procedure has shown to be beneficial for women and men of all age groups, those most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are at or near their ideal weight
- Deal with difficult areas of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise
- Are intimidated by or are not ideal candidates for surgery
- Understand realistic goals for the results of their procedure
Following your initial appointment to design your treatment plan, your first procedure will be arranged. At your appointment, the CoolSculpting handpiece and a special gel pad are used on the desired area and cryolipolysis will be initiated. The cooling technology, delivered through the handpiece, will target and freeze the fat. It is not uncommon to experience a cold sensation while receiving this procedure, but this should not create pain. Since the handpiece uses suction to pull the fat toward the area to be treated, you can expect to experience a minor pulling or stinging, but these will be completely normal sensations.
What to Expect
As CoolSculpting is noninvasive, you can return to normal activities after your procedure. Symptoms of the treatment can include stinging, redness, swelling, bruising, and soreness of the treatment area. These symptoms are short-lived and typically fade in the hours after your treatment. You should expect to enjoy results within three weeks with the most impressive results appearing 1 – 3 months following your CoolSculpting procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Just how much will CoolSculpting cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting depends upon the number of sessions required and the quantity of fat that will be removed. At your consultation, we'll discuss your aesthetic goals to ascertain the most appropriate course of action to attain those results. We'll also speak with you regarding any anticipated out-of-pocket expenses.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting involves using a monitored temperature to address fat cells in predetermined regions for treatment. Basically, it cools the cells while they die. The cells are broken up by your body and expelled through natural bodily functions.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical, topical procedure where the apparatus is applied simply to your skin's surface. With this therapy, there's no need for a healing period. You might notice some minor swelling and redness immediately following the session, but that generally subsides in approximately one week.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions recommended to accomplish your desired outcome will be determined during your consultation. For many patients, just one treatment is sufficient while others might require more therapy sessions dependent on the quantity of fat being treated. The amount of sessions depends on your aesthetic objectives and if you have larger layers of fat in target regions.
Can the fat cells grow back?
While the fat cells can't regrow, brand new fat cells may form. Furthermore, considerable weight gain can greatly impact your results. So, in order to keep your desired effects, it's advised that you stick to a proper diet plan and workout regimen.
