Working out, eating clean, working out again, still eating clean – clothes still not fitting right!!! Grrrr – this is the complaint we hear from many of our patients.
Fortunately there is a solution – CoolSculpting! Sound too good to be true? Here are the answers to the most burning questions we get about this procedure:
1. What is the CoolSculpting procedure?
This non-invaive, FDA-approved treatment freezes fat cell to debulk and eliminate stubborn, exercise resistant fat without the risks or downtime of surgery. The treatment crystalizes fat cells (haha take THAT fat!), causing them to die. Your body will process and eliminate the dead cells, leaving you with a less fat in the area.
2. Does It Hurt?
No, for the first few minutes you can expect to feel pressure and intense cold – but that goes away quickly. Many patients watch TV, work on their laptops, read or even fall asleep during the treatments.
3. How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments varies by patient, the area being treated and the amount of fat to remove. Come in for a FREE consultation and we can assess the area, talk about your goals and make a plan for treatment.
4. Will it work for me?
While the best way to figure out if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting is to schedule a consultation, a good rule of thumb is to check and see if the area you want to treat is “grabable”. Meaning can you grab a hold of the area?
5. When Will I See Results?
Most patients see the most dramatic and noticeable changes after two months, once your body has had the chance to flush out the majority of the dead fat cells. You may continue to see improvements for up to six months post treatment. Because the fat cells have been eliminated the results from CoolSculpting are permanent.
