COOLSCULPTING. NO SURGERY. NO DOWNTIME.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary FDA-approved procedure designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in areas around the body without the need for a single incision. This means that you don’t need to worry about wasting your time in bed waiting for your incisions to heal and your body to recover. There have been over 7 million treatments worldwide, and CoolSculpting® is considered by physicians to be the world’s number 1 nonsurgical fat reduction procedure
How the CoolSculpting Procedure Works
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure, a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to initiate a natural cell death process. Each CoolSculpting treatment reduces the fat layer in the area(s) treated. In the weeks and months to follow, your body naturally processes and eliminates the fat cells that were cooled during the procedure. Once the fat cells are gone, they leave a more sculpted you.
What Areas Can Coolsculpting Treat?
- Flanks (Love handles and hips)
- The Back
- The Chest
- Armpit Fat & Bra Buldge
- Upper Arms
- The Thighs (Inner and Outer)
- Submental (Double Chin)
Unlike other technologies, CoolSculpting does not harm the surrounding tissues and only damages fat cells. The cold-infusion also provides a simultaneous benefit, it stimulates both collagen and elastin production to help tighten the skin in the area(s) treated. One of the many advantages of CoolSculpting is that the reduction of the fat layer is gradual, producing lasting yet natural looking results.
A consultation is the first step to a successful CoolSculpting treatment. This will involve questions about the patient’s medical history, including details like medications that they are currently taking. A physical examination will also be performed.
During the visit, the process behind CoolSculpting will be explained. This would be the perfect time for patients to bring up any questions or concerns that they may have regarding the treatment.
After the CoolSculpting Procedure
While CoolSculpting doesn’t come with a downtime or recovery time, there are several aftercare steps that are advised. These include having the area massaged right after the treatment, applying a warm compress, and wearing a compression garment.
For patient comfort, it’s advised for them to wear loose, comfortable clothes during each session; there may be some minor swelling that occurs afterward, so tight and constricting clothes would be uncomfortable. Last but not least, patients are advised to avoid sugar, carbs, and alcohol for at least a week after each session.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
The price of CoolSculpting depends on several factors. CoolSculpting’s overall cost can be impacted by the number of treatment areas, along with each area’s size and location.
