WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthily and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose the annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. That is where CoolSculpting can help.
CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure. It’s an innovative way to contour your body by freeing unwanted fat cells away with no surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting is safe, precise, controlled, and effective. CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.
HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK?
Procedures that use lasers or sonic waves, and even surgery to remove fat, can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering, or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter, or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, this unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a process called cryolipolysis. It is a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months…boom! Say hello to a new you!
CoolSculpting is ideal for treating visible fat bulges on the thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. We even offer the CoolMini, which treats that stubborn double chin. Read more about that here.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
We always require a consultation before CoolSculpting to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. During this initial assessment, you can discuss your areas of concern, take measurements and develop a treatment plan. Everyone is different and it is important to set proper expectations with your provider before treatment. After your assessment, you can schedule your CoolSculpting appointment, choosing from several packages that our providers can customize to your individual needs.
During your appointment, your provider is going to mark your body to indicate the treated areas. A clear gel pad will be applied to the area, providing a barrier between the cooling panel and your skin.
Next, you will feel a slight suction sensation as the applicator adheres to your body. During the procedure, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, stinging, tingling, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations will fade and the area goes numb within 5-10 minutes. Many people read, watch tv, or even take a nap during their treatment.
After the treatment ends, your provider will massage the area, breaking up the treated fat cells and enhancing the fat reduction. Treatment time can vary between 35 minutes to an hour but we are currently offering dual CoolSculpting. This allows you to use two machines to treat two areas at once. Double the treatment in the same amount of time!
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
After your CoolSculpting® treatment, your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, leaving you more toned and sculpted. Remember, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, but a nonsurgical way of reducing the fat in those stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
After one visit, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. After a few months, your clothes will fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable. How cool is that?
Patients can expect up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in the treated area. Most people will treat each area at least twice for a more “wow” result. You can do as many treatments as you like. Refer to the treatment plan you developed with your provider as a guide. You can view treatment pricing here.
