CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat removal procedure that freezes and destroys fat cells. This fat remodelling technique involves controlled cooling of unwanted fat cells in various areas of the body. Each 35 minute session can reduce subcutaneous fat in the target area by up to 20–25% with no downtime. For this reason, it is considered a lunchtime treatment, since it allows clients to return to work and resume daily activities.
As each treatment plan is bespoke, an initial consultation with 3D imaging is executed to assess body contours from different angles and focus on specific areas. Patients typically require a course of two to four sessions spaced three months apart. Individual results may vary.
The standard time allotted for CoolSculpting varies according to the number of areas being treated in an office visit. The latest CoolSculpting technology can treat one area in approximately 35-60 minutes; many patients have more than one treatment during the same CoolSculpting session.
CoolSculpting has a globally established safety and efficacy profile as a worldwide leader in non-invasive fat reduction technology. CoolSculpting systems are controlled cooling devices with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, CoolSculpting will shut down automatically.
Common side effects are temporary numbness, mild soreness and mild bruising. If symptoms occur, they are usually mild and do not require medication or time off from activities. You are ready to return to your daily routine after a CoolSculpting treatment.
A: It usually takes two to six months for results to become visible. During CoolSculpting, about 17-20% of treated fat cells are eliminated and must exit the body. While you may begin seeing changes to your physique in as little as three weeks after treatment, the most dramatic and impactful results will be observable between two and six months post-procedure as compromised fat cells are flushed from the body.
Once targeted fat cells are crystallized by CoolSculpting treatment, they die and are naturally eliminated from the body. While this process results in permanent removal of undesired fat cells, the results of CoolSculpting are best maintained with a healthy diet and adequate exercise.
A: When the CoolSculpting process is initiated, clients generally feel intense cold and some suction applied to the treated area. This sensation soon dissipates and the area is typically numb within five to ten minutes of treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop or even take a nap during CoolSculpting. Afterward, patients may sense tingling as the treated area is massaged for two to three minutes.
Your CoolSculpting provider will devise, implement and supervise an individualised treatment regimen tailored to your aesthetic goals. Additional CoolSculpting sessions will be scheduled at your provider’s discretion to achieve these aims.
