CoolSculpting Q & A: Your Questions Answered!
Q. How Does CoolSculpting Work?
A. CoolSculpting uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells below the surface of the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. CoolSculpting is very precise and only freezes fat cells. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body without any pain or side effects.
Q. I have never been overweight in my life, in fact I am on the thin side. Will this treatment still work?
A. Yes! That is the beauty of this procedure. CoolSculpting targets “unwanted, stubborn fat”, and those areas vary from person to person regardless of size, height or weight.
Q. Is CoolSculpting a solution for weight loss?
A. No, it is not. We advise that our patients be within 30lbs of their normal weight range for optimal results. This procedure is meant to sculpt the body and eradicate those areas of fat that you can’t get rid of no matter how much you diet and exercise (love handles, back fat, abdominal fat, inner thighs). We recommend our physician supervised, FDA monitored HCG weight loss for patients that are looking to lose weight.
Q. Is CoolSculpting painful?
A. CoolSculpting is unique in that the procedure itself is not painful, and there is little to no downtime following the treatment. You will definitely feel the cold pressure on the areas being treated, but it’s very temporary. After the first few minutes, you really don’t feel anything as the area becomes quite numb.
Q. Are the results permanent? How long before I see results?
A.Yes, the fat reduction is permanent. After one visit, you will begin to see a reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. Additional CoolSculpting treatments can produce even better results if we deem it necessary.
