CoolSculpting® Before & After Photos

How Long Does CoolSculpting® Last

The process of cryolipolysis, or fat freezing, is a non-invasive way to remove unwanted fat cells from the body. The treatment involves cooling the fat cells to a temperature that disrupts their structure and causes them to die.

Once the fat cells have been safely cooled to a temperature that disrupts their structure they are marked for removal by the body’s immune system. Once these cells have left the body they are gone for good. However, CoolSculpting® is a Body Contouring treatment, not a weight loss treatment. If weight is gained, bulges may return.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary body-contouring technique that uses cold temperatures to reduce excess fat in targeted areas of the body. This safe, non-invasive treatment is a popular choice for patients looking to achieve a more sculpted and toned appearance without undergoing surgery or other invasive treatments. CoolSculpting® works by targeting specific areas of fat cells with controlled cooling energy.

Are You a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Most people can safely be treated with CoolSculpting®. You may be a good candidate if you have a problem with stubborn fat. This procedure is best when it targets specific spots. It’s not like a gastric bypass and is not done for emergency reasons. For small, stubborn areas, it can be as effective as procedures like liposuction.

What Are the Risks for CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is a safe procedure that has been performed well over a million times all over the globe. One of the reasons that it’s considered safe is that it’s strictly approved for only certain areas where the cold has no chance of reaching or affecting essential systems. The FDA has cleared it for use on the love handles, thighs, abdomen and chin.

Some disorders make you ineligible for CoolSculpting®. If you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, your skin should not be exposed to the sensations caused by this treatment.

Any additional questions or concerns can be addressed at your initial consultation.

How to Prepare for a CoolSculpting® Treatment

Unlike traditional liposuction, these treatments require little prep work in the days leading up to your appointment. For example, you should avoid getting sunburned or applying lotions or creams to the target area before your treatment, since those can complicate the process. Additionally, you may be advised to avoid medications like aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce the risk of bruising after your procedure.

What to Expect Post CoolSculpting®

Shortly after the procedure is complete, you may feel other sensations, including stinging and tingling. Your skin may show minor signs of swelling or bruising on the site treated.

CoolSculpting® Recovery & Timeline

In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good, leaving a more sculpted you.

All CoolSculpting® treatments plans are customized to individual needs. Generally, if more areas are being treated, the treatment takes longer to complete.

Multiple sessions may be necessary for comprehensive treatment plans.

 

What happens to the fat? Is it gone for good?

The cells are frozen by the process. As a result of this, they are marked for removal by the body as if they were any other cell that had taken damage. These cells are removed completely, and they are gone for good. However, new cells can develop in the same area if the body starts storing new fat.

 

What will I feel during the CoolSculpting® procedure?

There are several phases of the procedure. During the first few minutes, you’ll feel both pressure and a freezing sensation. However, this doesn’t last very long for most people. It becomes steadily numb after a few minutes, and then it’s just a matter of waiting. Patients who have had the procedure before often like to come prepared with laptops, podcasts, music or other ways to pass the time.
