Here’s the info: developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, patented, clinically proven procedure involves freezing fat cells without damage to your skin. There’s no knife. No suction hoses. No needles. No lasers, even. After your treatment, you get on with your busy day.
Typically, you’ll see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit. You can lose even more with additional appointments, if you and your doctor deem it necessary.
What does that mean? Simply put, your clothes fit better. You look better. The fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body over the following few months, leaving you feeling more like yourself again. It’s non-surgical, medically cleared, and there’s usually little to no downtime whatsoever - unless you count reading a book or checking email during your appointment as downtime. And what’s more is 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. Hello, you again.
What happens during the treatment?
You and your clinician first select the area(s) to be treated. Your clinician will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure - enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
What does it feel like?
As the cooling goes to work in the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes you can. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, swelling, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after the CoolSculpting® treatment, too. Like they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
Are the results permanent?
When you have your CoolSculpting® treatment, the affected fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable
What will my results be?
Typically, each CoolSculpting® treatment results in a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss. Some patients find that one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your doctor will discuss and design a plan that suits you best.
