What Can I Expect After My CoolSculpting Treatment?
The CoolSculpting Procedure: What To Expect After CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved fat reduction technology on the market today. What does this mean? Thanks to its ability to eliminate fat through a non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting is a recognized leader in fat reduction treatments. With many patients experiencing up to 20-25% reduction of fat in treated areas, CoolSculpting is not only a means to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat — but also a means of truly sculpting your body.
HOW DOES THE COOLSCULPTING PROCESS WORK?
After a free consultation and then booking a CoolSculpting treatment, you will be invited into one of our treatment rooms. Your CoolSculpting technician will place an applicator directly on the area you selected for treatment during your individual consultation and booking.
Once the CoolSculpting process begins, you should settle in for a treatment that’ll last for approximately 30 minutes. During this time, many patients read a book, watch TV, get work done, or play a game. It’s your time to do what you feel comfortable doing!
During the CoolSculpting procedure, the applicator freezes and then crystallizes the targeted fat cells. Eventually, the fat cells die. Over time, the cells are gradually eliminated as they’re naturally carried out of the body, revealing a new, more sculpted you. Because of the amazing technological advances found in CoolSculpting, pockets of fat cells — and only pockets of fat cells — are targeted. This means you can target diet and exercise resistant fat to sculpt your ideal body.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE
After CoolSculpting, you can expect to see the initial results as early as 2-3 weeks after treatment. The full dramatic results of CoolSculpting become apparent 2-3 months post-treatment. You can expect to see the stubborn pockets of fat you’ve been dealing with shrinking in size, and you’ll notice a leaner, more sculpted body!
WHAT CAN/CAN’T I DO AFTER COOLSCULPTING
With CoolSculpting, there’s no surgery, no scarring, and little to no downtime. Many patients go out for lunch or go shopping right after treatment. It’s important to note that CoolSculpting works best for people who are already living an active and healthy lifestyle. There are no big lifestyle changes required after CoolSculpting. Just stick to your healthy lifestyle and let CoolSculpting do the rest!
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?
Being a good CoolSculpting candidate means you already live an active and healthy lifestyle, and are within 5-35 pounds of your ideal weight. It’s important to not that CoolSculpting is NOT a weight loss program. It’s a tool for highly targeted fat reduction. When we diet and exercise, fat cells in our body shrink and pool up into concentrated pockets of fat. CoolSculpting allows us to target those pockets of fat that diet and exercise alone cannot remove. That’s why the ideal candidate is someone who has already worked hard to tone and sculpt their body. CoolSculpting is simply the cherry on top!
