What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted, stubborn fat cells, leaving you feeling and looking slimmer and closer to your ideal image. The CoolSculpting treatment gives individuals the opportunity to eliminate stubborn fat without surgery or downtime.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated with CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting procedure is a great option for treating a variety of body areas in both men and women, especially those that are prone to fat bulges that are not easily reduced through diet and exercise. Some of the body areas that can be successfully treated with CoolSculpting include:
- inner thighs
- outer thighs
- love handles
- double chin
Will CoolSculpting Help With Weight Loss?
Although many people believe that fat reduction and weight loss are essentially the same thing, the truth is they are not. Weight loss is caused by decreasing the size of fat cells in the body, while fat reduction is the process of reducing the number of fat cells in certain areas of the body. As a result, though you will feel and look slimmer following CoolSculpting treatments, you may not lose weight as CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From CoolSculpting Treatments?
There is no recovery period or downtime following CoolSculpting procedures. That’s one of the best things about this revolutionary procedure – you can sculpt your body without surgery or downtime!
What are the Side Effects of the CoolSculpting Procedure?
The side effects associated with the CoolSculpting procedure are relatively mild. During the procedure, you may experience some slight discomfort as the skin is cooled. Following the procedure, you may notice some skin redness in the treatment area which can list from minutes to hours. Some patients may notice bruising and/or tenderness or cramping and/or itching in the affected area for 1 to 2 weeks following their CoolSculpting procedure. A temporary dulling sensation following the procedure may occur as well, lasting for 1 or more weeks.
Though you may experience these mild side effects, there is no downtime or recovery period associated with CoolSculpting treatments!
How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?
The cost for CoolSculpting treatments varies significantly based on the areas of the body that are being treated and the number of treatments you are interested in having.
