Here are answers to questions you may have about the CoolSculpting® Procedure. If you have other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Nicole today.
Q:Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure?
A: The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. With our weight-loss program, we can ensure you get the optimum results.
Q: How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
A:The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals.
Q: How long is each treatment? How many treatments will I need?
A: We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. The latest technology of CoolSculpting can treat a patient in 35-60 minutes, some patients have more than one treatment during the same office visit. You may also schedule additional treatments or office visits in order to meet your goals.
Q: Can the CoolSculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?
A: The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges under the chin (double chin), thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), upper arms, and male chest.
Q: Where does that fat go? Are the results permanent?
A: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.
Q: What does it feel like?
A: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment. After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
Q: What are the side effects?
A: During the procedure, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Q: When will I see results?
A: You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
