How does CoolSculpting reduce fat?
Unlike weight loss which shrinks fat cells, CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in a treatment area by cooling them to a temperature that damages them, while leaving the surrounding skin and tissues unharmed. A percentage of the treated fat cells die and break down over the days & weeks following each treatment and once fat cells die, they don't return.
The treatment is non-surgical, non-invasive, and is not uncomfortable in most cases. There is minimal downtime if any, and patients often resume non-strenuous daily activities immediately.
How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?
Most patients notice about a 20 - 25% reduction in the fat treated in the months after a treatment session. For people with a minimal amount of fat, a single CoolSculpting treatment may be all that's needed to reach the desired results. This happens frequently with arm treatments. For larger amounts of fat, several treatment sessions may be required to obtain optimal improvement.
Even though many people initially think they want to shrink just one area of unwanted fat, they find that once that area is leaner, reducing other areas makes their 360-degree results even better. Commonly people who have treated the fat on their abdomens realize that shrinking some of the fat on their flanks, or love handles, gives them a more whittled waist.
What does a CoolSculpting treatment feel like?
After carefully marking the area/s to be treated, the applicator is placed on the treatment area, sometimes with mild suction. As the treatment starts, a cooling sensation is present which becomes colder and eventually feels numb.
During the treatment, your CoolSculpting team will make sure you're comfortable by positioning you so that you can relax & catch up on any Netflix programs you've missed, work on your laptop or device, or have a facial treatment if desired, while those fatty areas quietly freeze away.
When the treatment time is up, the applicator is removed and the treated area is massaged for two minutes until it warms up, & voila, you're done.
How does it feel after a CoolSculpting treatment?
The areas treated with CoolSculpting are often mildly sore and swollen immediately afterward. The swelling is usually better after a few days but the soreness may persist for up to a few weeks, depending on the area treated. Many people notice some mild, temporary numbness for a few weeks as well. We like to think of the discomfort & numbness associated with CoolSculpting as the noise overheard from the party of dying fat cells.
How long after my CoolSculpting treatment will I see results?
Some patients can begin to see a reduction in the treated areas or notice their clothes fit better in as little as three weeks, but for most people, results become visible in about three months, with continuing improvement over up to six months.
How long do the results last?
CoolSculpting causes a percentage of the fat cells in the treated area to die & dissolve, so they won't return. If you gain weight, the remaining fat cells throughout the body will increase in size diffusely, including those in the treated area, although the number of cells in the treated area will remain the same. Maintaining a healthy weight will help you to appreciate your results long-term.
How do I know if I’ll get the results I want with CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting is not a weight loss method & it is designed to give the best results for those people who have localized, resistant fatty areas despite good diet and exercise habits.
The results seen with CoolSculpting are fairly predictable compared to other fat-reducing devices. CoolsSculpting is effective on subcutaneous fat, which is the padding that lies just below the skin but above the muscle. People with large abdomens who don't feel a thick, soft fat layer just under the skin when they tense their abdominal muscles, have fat located under the muscle layer, where CoolSculpting can't penetrate. There people are not candidates for CoolSculpting on their abdomens.
Because the CoolSculpting treatment uses cooling, those with the rare medical conditions of cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria can not undergo CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting applicators that require suction cannot be placed over a known hernia, repaired hernia site, or a recent surgical incision.
