Do you have stubborn fat around your midsection, buttocks, or thighs? If you’ve been unable to get the toned, sculpted figure you want with diet and exercise, CoolSculpting may be the solution for you.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that freezes fat cells and removes them from the body, helping create the physique you’ve been striving for in the gym.
SafiraMD Medical Aesthetics & Wellness Center provides CoolSculpting treatment in Alpharetta, GA. Read on to learn how CoolSculpting is performed and how to find out whether you are a candidate for this procedure.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive aesthetic procedure that aims to remove unwanted fat and create a slimmer figure. This procedure works through the process of cryolipolysis. During cryolipolysis, intense cooling energy is delivered deep into the tissues to directly target and freeze the fat cells in your problem areas.
For most patients, this includes some combination of the following spots:
- Upper arms
- Under the chin
CoolSculpting brings these fat cells down to a temperature at which they cannot survive, effectively destroying them. They are later removed from the body through the lymphatic drainage system, leaving behind a more sculpted figure.
Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting?
When seeking CoolSculpting treatment, it is important to know that this is not a weight-loss procedure. Ideal candidates should be within 30 pounds of their optimal body weight. CoolSculpting is designed to address isolated problem areas where there are unwanted fat cells. It will not help you lose significant amounts of weight.
To determine whether you are a candidate for CoolSculpting, speak to our team. We will evaluate your current problem areas and overall body weight to decide whether the cryolipolysis process will meet your needs. If not, we will discuss alternative options that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
How Is CoolSculpting Performed?
Are you interested in CoolSculpting treatment? Before going into any new cosmetic treatment, it’s a good idea to know what you can expect. The following is a breakdown of the entire CoolSculpting process.
Before Your Session
Clients enjoy CoolSculpting because there is no real preparation involved. We recommend you wear loose, comfortable clothing, but this is not required.
Some patients choose to bring something they can read or listen to while their procedure is being performed. Other than this, there is nothing else you need to do before your CoolSculpting session.
The CoolSculpting Process
During the CoolSculpting procedure, you will be able to lie down and relax while we administer the treatment. We use a handheld device to direct intense cooling energy deep into the tissues in your desired treatment areas. For many patients, this is some combination of the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and love handles.
Clients report feeling a cold sensation on their skin while the device is in use. The treatment is relaxing for many patients, allowing them to listen to music or read while the process is completed. Depending on the areas being treated, the entire procedure can take anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes to complete.
Your Fat Freezing Results
Once your CoolSculpting session is complete, you can return home and resume your normal activities. There is no downtime or recovery process necessary. To see optimal results, you will need to return for additional CoolSculpting sessions. For most patients, this can be anywhere from three to six sessions, each spaced several weeks apart.
It will take time for the frozen fat cells to completely dissolve and be removed from the body. This means you will not see your CoolSculpting results immediately. Clients typically notice a difference in their figures between one and three months after treatment, depending on their unique problem areas.
Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting
If you’re new to the CoolSculpting process, it’s understandable to have some questions and concerns. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions clients have about this fat freezing procedure.
Can CoolSculpting Be Used on the Face?
CoolSculpting technology can be used anywhere there are unwanted fat cells. Many patients choose to have CoolSculpting applied under the chin and jawline to reduce a double chin.
Can I Have Multiple Areas Treated at Once?
CoolSculpting can be applied to numerous treatment areas in one session. Most patients choose to have several areas of the body treated during their procedure. It’s worth noting that the number of areas being treated will impact the duration of your session.
How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Will I Need?
Every patient has their own unique needs, which means the number of CoolSculpting sessions required to see results will vary from person to person. During your consultation, we can assess your current problem areas and go over your desired outcome to design a treatment plan.
Does CoolSculpting Produce Permanent Results?
CoolSculpting will permanently destroy the existing fat cells it is applied to. With that being said, it is possible to form new fat cells in the same area if you do not adhere to a healthy lifestyle. To maintain your CoolSculpting results, you will need to follow a well-balanced diet and get regular exercise.
