Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is approved by the FDA for fat reduction in the thighs, back, belly, love handles, upper arms, buttocks and neck. Over one million successful CoolSculpting treatments have been performed across the globe without negative side effects or complications. CoolSculpting does not require any anesthesia, incisions, lasers, scarring or scalpels, yet can beautifully streamline the torso.
Are there any side effects with CoolSculpting?
Patients may feel a slight tugging feeling during treatment. Afterward, some minor side effects may include redness, temporary numbness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, or tingling, although none of these are significant enough to warrant alarm. Speak with our team during your private consultation to determine whether CoolSculpting is appropriate for your needs.
How many CoolSculpting sessions will I need?
Each person will receive a detailed, personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their unique goals. The number of sessions you need depends on the areas of the body you’re targeting and on how much fat you wish to remove. On average, patients will need 2-3 treatments to see comprehensive improvement in the physique.
What happens to the fat once it’s destroyed?
Once the fat cells are frozen through the process of cryolipolysis, the body naturally eliminates them as waste. Fat cells removed through CoolSculpting do not return, as fat cells cannot regenerate. This is more effective than dieting or exercise, methods that can only shrink the size of the fat cells rather than completely eliminating them. With CoolSculpting, even if the patient gains weight in the future, the treated areas will still remain toned and lean.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
After your session begins, you may feel a minor pulling sensation, as well as slight pressure and a freezing feeling. The treatment areas soon grow numb due to the cold, which many patients don’t even notice because they are busy working, talking on the phone, reading, watching movies, or napping.
What happens after my CoolSculpting session?
CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical, so you will be able to return immediately to your normal activities such as work, school or play. There is no anesthesia or incisions with CoolSculpting, so you will feel completely alert and ready to resume your schedule. Side effects such as soreness and redness tend to be minor and are easily controlled with over-the-counter painkillers.
When will I start seeing results with CoolSculpting?
Results with CoolSculpting are gradual but steady. The fat cells frozen during cryolipolysis must be escorted out of the body as waste. Within about 3 weeks you will begin noticing positive changes in your figure and by 3 months you will see even more dramatic improvements. By 6 months, you will experience the full extent of the contouring achieved with CoolSculpting. Changes are permanent, provided you stay active and eat right.
Do I have to follow a special diet after CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells responsible for the bulging in your figure. It has nothing to do with what you do or do not eat, so you will not need to adhere to any special diets after your procedure. Many clients do feel motivated to follow a healthier lifestyle, however, by choosing foods that support their overall health and well being.
What happens if I gain weight after my procedure?
Encouraged by the fat loss results achieved with CoolSculpting, many clients embark on a regimen of healthy eating and exercising after their treatment. If you do gain weight in the future, it will be more evenly distributed over the body rather than concentrated in a few spots as before. The regions treated with CoolSculpting will now have fewer fat cells, so they appear more toned even if you put on a few pounds. Only extreme, massive weight gain would negate your CoolSculpting results.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
CoolSculpting costs will vary depending on the number of treatment areas, the number of sessions required, and on your fat loss goals. On average, clients undergo 2-3 treatments to see significant changes in the physique.
