Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting:
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is the safe, effective and non-invasive way to reduce fat in common trouble areas that tend to be diet – and exercise-resistant. It is essentially non-invasive liposuction. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, without damage to your skin. This treatment is for patients who wish to reduce stubborn areas of fat without surgery. CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard scientists to create a non-surgical, no-downtime option for fat reduction.
What is the treatment process?
You will either sit or lie down during your procedure. An applicator will be applied to the area for treatment. Vacuum pressure will draw tissue into the applicator cup. Cooling panels will begin to cool the area, which will typically become numb after 5-10 minutes. CoolSculpting takes about one hour per treated area and most patients are able to rest, check email or read while undergoing treatment.
After treatment the applicator is then removed and the area massaged for a few minutes.
What results can I expect from Zeltiq?
You will see at least a 20% reduction in the area treated. As part of the treatment process before and after measurements are taken to confirm results. You will find a reduction in size, and your clothes will fit better. You will have a firmer, tighter appearance. Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area anywhere from two weeks to two months. The fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body over a period of time following the treatment. There are no pills or supplements and as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.
Do I have to restrict my activities?
Most patients can resume regular activity immediately after treatment.
Is it possible to have an area treated that was previously treated by another modality?
Patients who have previously had liposuction or any other fat reducing technology can also have CoolSculpting. In fact, this is a great complement to liposuction to further sculpt and tone the body.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients need 1-2 treatments per area for optimal results. These areas include the upper and lower abdomen, the obliques, the flanks (“love handles”), the upper back, and the thighs. To treat the abdomen area most patients need about 8-10 treatments in total for the full transformation effect. Up to four areas can be done in the same day. Most patients need between 2-3 visits to our office to complete their treatments.
Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after two months.
Does it hurt?
There is initial pressure and cooling, however the area will numb after a few minutes and you can lie comfortably and check email, read a book, watch movies, or nap.
Vacuum pressure draws tissue into the applicator cup, causing sensations of intense pulling, tugging, or pinching. These sensations will be followed by an initial sensation of intense cold. As cold is applied and the area becomes numb (typically in 5-10 minutes), one may experience sensations of tingling or stinging. These sensations typically subside after a few minutes.
Why Do CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a way to reclaim your figure by reducing fat in common trouble spots like the love handles (“muffin top”) that seem impossible to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated areas. This means that your jeans fit better. You can feel confident on the beach or by the pool. And there’s no need to add any more notches on the belt.
