Before you undergo a CoolSculpting® treatment, there are a few things that you should know. It is always important to research any procedure or treatment before deciding whether or not it’s right for you. Scheduling a consultation is the best thing you can do, but in the meantime, these five questions will be helpful to see if you are on the right track to undergo a CoolSculpting® treatment.
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive body contouring technology that eliminates up to 20 to 25 percent of treated fat cells for good in nine different areas of the body. It targets stubborn fat in the areas that bother you the most, like under the chin and jawline areas, thigh, abdomen, flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (banana roll), and the upper arm.
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® are in good general health. They are also individuals who have stubborn bulges of fat to eliminate rather than a lot of weight. CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss procedure, so it is best to schedule a consultation at the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa to determine whether or not you are a true candidate.
After you have your consultation, you will be told how many CoolSculpting® sessions you will need to obtain your desired results. However, most patients usually require only one treatment per area.
Results can be seen within four to six weeks. Once the fat cells die off, they are naturally eliminated from the body, and the results become more visible. If necessary, patients can receive more treatments if they want more noticeable results in certain treatment areas.
CoolSculpting® is not permanent; however, the fat that is eliminated is gone for good. Because CoolSculpting® permanently eliminates some of the fat cells from the body, you will never regain those fat cells. Patients still need to maintain a proper diet and exercise to ensure that their results remain because the remaining fat cells can still expand if you gain weight, which causes patients to have a fuller body contour.
