CoolSculpting is a procedure that selectively targets fat cells and kills them using a controlled cooling method. The dead cells are then processed out of your body. Below, we answer some of the most common questions about this procedure.
- Is CoolSculpting Safe?
The procedure has been cleared in America by the FDA.
- Is CoolSculpting a Good Method for Weight Loss?
CoolSculpting selectively reduces the appearance of fat in targeted areas and is used to help shape the body. Diet and exercise are paramount to maintain a healthy weight. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss method, but a way to get rid of those stubborn fat deposits such as love handles, double chins, back rolls and arm hang. However, you can expect your clothes to fit better and your appearance to be trimmer, even if the numbers on the scale don’t change.
- Does it Hurt?
Some people experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but most nap, read or catch up on work using a tablet or laptop. Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, you simply return to your normal activities right after your appointment. There is no downtime.
- How Long Until I See Results?
It doesn’t take long to experience the results! You’ll start to notice a difference about three weeks after your treatment and see the most dramatic results about two months later as fat cells are continually processed out of your body. DISCLAIMER: These results may vary depending on the patient’s health history. While many of our patients have had great results, results are not the same for everyone.
- Are There Risks and Side Effects?
While minimal, there are some risks that make CoolSculpting unsafe for those with certain diseases or conditions. A thorough consultation with a licenced professional will determine your eligibility for this treatment.
- Can I Afford CoolSculpting?
Your consultation and goals will determine the cost. Depending on the areas you want to reduce and the number of treatments needed, the cost will vary. You will be fully informed of the costs for your customized plan before treatment takes place. Many find the costs to be very reasonable and well worth the price of a trimmer body.
