Get rid of those muffin tops and love handles with CoolSculpting! CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that contours your body by freezing away unwanted fat. No surgery or downtime required.
Getting rid of unwanted fat is now even easier, and it can occur in half the time with dualsculpting. Instead of treating one side of the body at a time, both sides can be treated simultaneously with two Coolsculpting machines working at the same time!
The Science behind Coolsculpting
A: CoolSculpting™ is non-invasive, there is no risk of infection, complications from anesthesia, or other side effects associated with surgery .The wonderful thing about CoolSculpting™ is that it enables precise, controlled delivery of the cooling that affects only fat cells on your body, ensuring that no surrounding tissue or cells are affected or damaged. Other common methods for destroying fat cells such as ultrasound and radiofrequency can impact other cells, posing greater risks.
A: Each CoolSculpting™ treatment can last anywhere from one to several hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. We will tell you during the consultation how many hours you will require. If you require more than two hours, these sessions can be broken up over several days or can be scheduled all together in one sitting. Patients often spend the one to two hours of procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
A: Unlike most methods of fat reduction procedures, the great thing about CoolSculpting™ is that it is gentle and entirely non-invasive. NO knives, NO suction hoses, and NO needles. So that all said there is NO down time following this treatment. You may resume to your daily activities immediately after. If you like you can even exercise right after the procedure. Mild redness in the treated area can last several minutes up to two weeks. Some people may bruise, which can last up to two weeks. Within the first two weeks you may experience, tingling, tenderness, cramping, itching or soreness. You may feel a temporary dulling sensation in the treated area for up to eight weeks. Patients vary in side effects and while many experience no reaction, others may experience mild discomfort.
A: CoolSculpting™ is designed for individuals who are healthy and fit, but who want to eliminate fat in areas of their body that have not responded well to diet or exercise. It is not a substitute for weight loss or liposuction, nor does it address problems with obesity.
A: Many patients are satisfied after one treatment because you will see about a 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated area. Results can be seen over a period of two to four months but as soon as three weeks following the treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs. The procedure may be repeated in the same area after two to four months to have a 40-50 percent reduction of fat in that area.
A: The effects of the treatment are permanent. Fat cells do not reproduce or expand in size. Once CoolSculpting™ eliminates fat cells from your body , they will not reappear if healthy exercise and lifestyle are maintained.
