FAQs: You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers
So what exactly is CoolSculpting, and how can this freeze my fat off?
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise. CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only these fat cells. Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. The fat is gone for good!
Does CoolSculpting involve surgery?
Absolutely not, which is why CoolSculpting is so great. This treatment is performed in our beautiful and comfortable treatment room with a TV featuring Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. So you can say goodbye to stubborn fat while you watch your favorite show.
Are Results from CoolSculpting Permanent?
Yes. CoolSculpting kills fat cells permanently in the treated area(s) by 20-25% each time. Secondary or additional treatments continue to reduce the fat by 20-25% each time.
Is There Downtime After CoolSculpting?
Generally not, which is why CoolSculpting is so great. Some may experience a sensation of numbness or tingling in the treated area(s). After a CoolSculpting treatment you will be able to return to work and most normal activities right away. And because we are also a medical office and always have a PA or MD on site, if you were to experience discomfort, we are able to prescribe medications to manage your symptoms.
What Does a CoolSculpting Treatment Feel Like? Is CoolSculpting Painful?
While most people state no pain during a Coolsculpting procedure, others may find some mild discomfort during various times throughout. The New CoolAdvantage applicators are ideal for those who are sensitive to pain. The CoolSculpting treatment feels like a freezing ice pack has been applied to your skin. It may provide a stinging sensation for just a few minutes, after which point your treatment area will feel numb to the pain. When the treatment applicator is removed, there is a massage that is applied at treatment end to help the treated area return to its normal temperature and unfrozen state. Your body will not show signs a procedure was performed.
