What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting system securely conveys accurately controlled cooling to delicately and successfully focus on fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are solidified, then expire. After some time, your body normally works through the fat and dispenses dead cells, for a more tailored you.
Am I good candidate for the procedure?
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.
The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity.
How is the treatment performed?
1. Before beginning treatment, your area of concern will be marked to ensure proper placement and size of the applicator.
2: A cool gel pad is placed over the area to protect your skin from the applicator.
3: This specially designed cooling applicator uses vacuum pressure to draw tissue into the cooling panels.
4: A few minutes after application, you will feel some pressure and coolness. This disappears after approximately 10 minutes.
5: The applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling that freezes your targeted fat cells. These fat cells are safely, gradually, and naturally eliminated from your body.
6: The treatment is comfortable, non-invasive, and there are no restrictions afterwards. This is a great time to relax or catch up on some good reading.
7: After the one hour treatment, your skin will be red and raised. This is only temporary after the applicator is removed.
|8: The treated area is massaged for a few minutes, and the skin goes down and returns to normal. Massage is a safe and effective way to further reduce the fat layer following a Coolsculpting treatment.|
Are there any side effects?
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 include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, 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.
What can I/cannot do after my treatment?
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day after a CoolSculpting treatment is completed
When can I expect results?
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.
