Who is a good candidate for treatment?
Ideal candidates for this procedure are not only patients who are relatively fit with some modest-sized fat bulges, but also those individuals who are looking to reduce and then contour larger areas of fat. Both men and women can benefit from CoolSculpting® and it is safe for individuals of all skin types.
What areas can be treated with CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® can effectively treat the abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and back.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients can begin to see some results as soon as one month after treatment. Typically, final results are seen within 4 to 6 months after treatment.
How long is the treatment?
Most applications take one hour, however the newest applicator, the CoolSmooth requires two hours per application. Your appointment time will depend on how many appropriate areas you wish to treat. With multiple devices in the practice, we are many times, able to perform dual applications at the same time
What is the treatment like?
During the treatment, your doctor will apply the appropriate CoolSculpting® applicator to the treatment area; when the selected applicator utilizes suction, the skin is pulled into the applicator by mild vacuum pressure. Patients may be slightly uncomfortable with the contact of the cold as the treatment begins, which usually goes away after the first 10 minutes or so. If you feel too uncomfortable with the cold, please let your doctor know. Treatment does not require anesthetic and your doctor will assess and determine what pain management, if any, is necessary for you.
After the treatment is completed, gentle manual and mechanical massage is performed. Some patients experience temporary redness, mild bruising, swelling, tingling, tenderness, temporary dulling of sensation or cramping. Patients may immediately return to their normal activities including work and exercise.
What kind of results will CoolSculpting® produce?
Clinical trials demonstrated approximately 20% reduction in areas of treatment. Our treatment subjects experienced similar results in a clinical trial performed at our Center. The fat cells that are eliminated from CoolScultping® do not return, so as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your results will last.
