CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment that freezes and eliminates stubborn areas of fat, without incisions or downtime. It's commonly used to treat the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and double chin.
Stubborn fat can make you feel discouraged or upset when it comes to your overall weight loss goals. Don’t get discouraged. Instead, read more to see if you qualify as a potential candidate for CoolSculpting®. While this treatment has proven beneficial for both women and men of all ages, those most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting® include:
- Patients who are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
- Patients who deal with difficult areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise
- Patients who do not want to undergo more invasive procedures
- Patients who understand realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure
The cost of a CoolSculpting® will depend on several factors. The price can be affected by body type, type of technique performed, surgical complications, and even allergies. Find out more by scheduling a consultation.
During your complimentary consultation, our medical team determines if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting® treatment. During a CoolSculpting® appointment, the medical provider takes before photos, measurements of the areas that are being treated, as well as a weight log. The provider will then apply a gel pad and the applicator to the desired area and initiate the controlled cooling technique, which eliminates the fat. The cooling technology, delivered through the applicator will begin to target and freeze the fat. It is not uncommon to experience coolness while receiving this procedure, but this does not typically create pain. As the applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat toward the predetermined treatment area, you should prepare to experience slight pulling or pinching, which are common sensations.
Since the CoolSculpting® procedure is nonsurgical, you can return to your daily activities following your treatment. Typically, you can go back to work immediately after your procedure, making this a doable lunch break treatment, depending on the size of your treatment area. Symptoms of the procedure can include redness, swelling, bruising, stinging, and tenderness of the treated site. These symptoms will subside in a few hours following your treatment. Patients usually notice results in as little as four weeks, while they will see the most obvious and dramatic results 4-6 months following their CoolSculpting® procedure.
To further amplify the results of your CoolSculpting® treatment, consider CoolMini, an advanced, noninvasive fat reduction procedure that can be used to reduce submental fat beneath the chin. Approved by the FDA as a nonsurgical, double chin-reducing procedure, CoolMini is both safe and effective. With 1-3 treatments of one hour in length, this procedure provides dramatic results without needles, incisions, or the need for anesthesia. To learn if you are a candidate for the treatment, ask for more information during your CoolSculpting® consultation.
