CoolSculpting, a non-invasive fat reduction procedure, contours the body by reducing fat cells in the targeted area. By freezing the fat, the cells die and are naturally eliminated by the body. This non-surgical procedure requires no downtime and provides long-lasting, noticeable results. Are you considering CoolSculpting but not sure what to expect? Here’s what you need to know:
Before treatment, you must schedule a one-on-one consultation with a trained aesthetician in order to have your body analyzed from multiple angles. An example of a good candidate for CoolSculpting is someone with subcutaneous fat (fat that can be grabbed or tugged on) or someone who has stubborn bulges of fat that resist diet and exercise. It is also important for you to have realistic expectations for the procedure. Every body is different, so your aesthetician will work with you to create a customized treatment plan.
Treatment times may vary depending on the part of the body being treated, but can take as little as 35 minutes per treatment area. You may only need to take one visit to the facility to achieve your goals, but more than one treatment may be needed. “Dual sculpting” may be used to treat two areas at one time. During treatment, a gel pad and applicator are placed on the targeted area. You may feel intense cold during the first five minutes, but the area will numb and the feeling should subside. Since a vacuum is utilized to draw the fat into the applicator cup, you may feel a slight tugging, pulling, or mild pinching. A brief massage will then be performed on the treated area to break up the treated fat cells to enhance fat reduction.
After treatment, your body will naturally process and eliminate the dead fat cells in the area that has been treated. Patients can expect up to 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated area, but keep in mind that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure, but a way to reduce fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. Side effects may include temporary redness, bruising, swelling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, skin sensitivity, itching, or firmness.
