The CoolSculpting Fat Freezing Process
Step 1: Initial CoolSculpting Consultation
Once you’re eady to lose stubborn fat and get the trim body you’ve always wanted, it’s time to schedule a consultation to discuss your body sculpting and fat loss goals.
We will answer your questions and put together a CoolSculpting fat loss treatment plan that is right for you, and fits your budget. If cost is an issue, our helpful office staff can assist you with easy financing options, too.
During your first visit we will assess your entir body from different angles, take measurements, and together decide on the specific areas you want to target to eliminate fat. For people with less fat, one CoolSculpting treatment may be enough. For patients with a greater amount of stubborn fat, multiple treatments may be part of the plan.
Step 2: CoolSculpting Treatment Day
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, so there is little to do in the way of preparation.
A special gel pad applicator will be applied to the area(s) of fat you are targeting. The applicator is then digitally programmed to deliver controlled, targeted cooling to the fat over a poeriod of about a half hour. Because fat is “frozen” the bodty then elininates the dead fat cells over time. So there are no incisions and no anesthetic needed.
The CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly at first. However, after feeling some intense coldthe area numbs within 5 to 10 minutes, and this feeling subsides. Many patients read, listen to music, check email, or even take a nap during the CoolSculpting process.
The CoolSculpting applicator also utilizes a mild vacuum technology to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup. As a result, patients may also feel some slight pulling, tugging, or pinching. While it may be slightly uncomfortable, most patients agree that it is not painful. And 100% of patients say that the briedf period of discomfort was more than worth it to lose the fat!
Step 3: After CoolSculpting
Because there is no downtime with CoolSculpting, you are allowed to drive yourself home or even return to work the same day.
It is very normal for there to be some temporary redness, swelling, whiteness, bruising, tingling, stinging, or tenderness after the procedure. Every patient reacts slightly differently. In a rare number of patients there can soetimes be cramping, aching, itching, skin firmness or sensitivity.
Rest assured that these effects are very temporary and will go away within a few days – or a week or two at most. As with any medical procedure, Dr. Ali and his expert staff will explain in more detail what to expect after your treatment.
Our staff will also schedule a follow-up assessment , to review your CoolSculpting results, as well as to schedule additional treatments, if needed.
Step 4: Seeing CoolSculpting Results
Your body will gradually eliminate the dead fat cells over time, through natural metabolic processes. You will begin to see initial results in as little as three week. It may take up to three months for the fat loss results to be more substantially visible. Your final and fully complete fat loss will be seen in 6 months – and often times less.
Remember, the fat cells that have been eliminated by CoolSculpting never come back…even if tyou gainm some weight. Of course it does not mean you can never gain weight in other parts of your body – so maintaining a healthy diet & lifestyle after CoolSculpting always ensures the best long-term results!
