WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
Owned by Allergan, CoolSculpting is a revolutionary, non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat, which then is naturally eliminated from your body, shaping up the areas you can’t conquer with diet and exercise alone. This treatment requires no needles, no surgery, and most importantly, no downtime. It is safe, FDA-cleared, effective and produces undeniable results. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle.
AM I GOING TO LOSE WEIGHT WITH COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure.
Fat cells certainly take up a lot of space and have a lot of volume, but they don’t weigh very much. The opposite is true of muscle. Lean muscle weighs more than fat but doesn’t take up a ton of space. So although you won’t see the scale change if you do CoolSculpting in isolation, you will see undeniable results. CoolSculpting can sculpt, contour, reshape, and debulk parts of your body.
The truth is, if you are just starting your healthy lifestyle journey, CoolSculpting could be perfect for you. We often find that people need a little motivation, they are so tired of not seeing the changes they want, they’ve given up. Once they invest in their own body and start to see changes, they are inspired and motivated to stay on track! CoolSculpting is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GAIN WEIGHT?
Many patients, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting treatment, take even better care of themselves by following a healthy diet and exercise regimen. But, if you do gain weight after a CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll gain it evenly all over your body — not just in the treated areas.
IS COOLSCULPTING RIGHT FOR ME?
CoolSculpting may be the ideal treatment option for you, if you:
- If you are 5-15 pounds from your ideal healthy weight
- Want to reduce areas of stubborn fat
- Want to sculpt, contour, or debulk areas of your body.
You’re an ideal candidate for CoolSculpting if you have noticeable bulges in certain areas that you’d like to get rid of, and you’re able to follow a healthy exercise and diet regimen. Remember CoolSculpting is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle.
WHERE ON THE BODY CAN COOLSCULPTING BE USED?
CoolSculpting can be used on the flanks (hips), abdomen, arms, thighs, back, chin, bra fat, inner/outer thigh. Mind you ONE circle is ONE cycle/applicator.
WHAT IS A COOLSCULPTING TREATMENT LIKE?
During the CoolSculpting procedure, a gel pad is placed on the skin prior to the placement of the applicator. The CoolSculpting applicator is then placed over the treatment area. Due to the vacuum assisted applicator, patients may initially feel a pulling, tugging, pinching or cool sensation. Next, the cooling component is activated. You may experience tingling, stinging, aching or cramping; however, these sensations generally subside in the first few minutes of treatment, as the area becomes numb. Typical treatment will vary depending upon number of treatments performed in a given day.
HOW MANY OFFICE VISITS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of CoolSculpting treatments you’ll need depends on the number of areas being treated and the results you want. Most patients undergo one-to-four CoolSculpting treatments in each area treated to see maximum results. Your very first appointment will be a consultation and our CoolTech will give set the perfect journey for you.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 4 weeks after each treatment, but you will experience the most dramatic results in 2 to 4 months. Your body will continue to naturally process the injured fat cells from your body for approximately 4 to 6 months after each procedure. During each treatment, the fat layer is typically reduced by about 5%. Additional treatment sessions are recommended to increase reduction in fat.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A team of renowned Harvard scientists developed the FDA-cleared CoolSculpting procedure which utilizes a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target fat, freeze fat, and permanently eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue. After a CoolSculpting procedure, the patient’s body goes to work. Over the next 2 to 6 months your body’s natural mechanisms will eliminate those cells, thinning out your fat layer and trimming inches off your body.
