What results will I see from CoolSculpting?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the CoolSculpting treatment?
To start the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The more tissue we can get between the plates, the better your results. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. During the treatment you can read, work on your computer, or just take a nap. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Can I return to normal activities after the CoolSculpting procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after about three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Are the results permanent?
During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated just as with liposuction. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
How many Coolsculpting sessions will I need?
That depends on where we are treating and how thick the fat is in that area. Compared to our treatment regimen in 2010, we are now more aggressive and treat the same area multiple times. In this way, we are able to get better results sooner.
