What to Know Before Deciding to Get CoolSculpting
Countless people across America suffer from stubborn fat that refuses to respond to diet or exercise. Fortunately, thanks to CoolSculpting, people in the Detroit, MI area can come to AMAE MedSpa and attain the body goals they’ve always dreamed of. In this article, we will dissect all the important details to consider when deciding if CoolSculpting is right for you.
Deciding if CoolSculpting is Right for You
The first step on every patient’s CoolSculpting journey is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Ali to go over all of the desired outcomes of the CoolSculpting Procedure. During this process, all of the patient’s questions regarding CoolSculpting will be answered and Dr. Ali will assemble a treatment plan that fit’s the body (and budget) of the patient.
The CoolSculpting consultation will also involve the patient’s body being examined from all angles, with measurements being taken to help aid in determining which specific areas of the body will be treated.
Depending on the patient’s body type and desired outcome, Dr. Ali may recommend either a single CoolSculpting procedure, or a customized treatment plan involving multiple CoolSculpting treatments.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, so very little is asked of patients to prepare for their procedure. CoolSculpting patients are encouraged to shower before their procedure to remove any skin oils, and they should avoid applying any lotions or creams to the treatment area.
The non-surgical nature of CoolSculpting means that no anesthetic is required. The actual CoolSculpting process begins with the application of a gel pad and applicator to the treatment area, which is accompanied by a chilly (but not at all painful) sensation. After five to ten minutes, the treatment area will be numb.
Through mild vacuum technology, the handheld CoolSculpting applicator will draw fat tissue out of the body and into the cup of the applicator. This is occasionally accompanied by a minor pulling, tugging, or pinching sensation, but most patients are in agreement that while the process is slightly uncomfortable, the CoolSculpting process is not at all painful…and absolutely worth it for the fabulous results.
While the length of each CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the individual needs of each patient, most CoolSculpting procedures only take between a half hour to an hour to complete. And as CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, patients are even able to return to work or carry about with the rest of their daily routine immediately following their treatment.
Most patients can expect a 24% reduction if fat in the treated area, once the frozen and destroyed fat cells are eliminated from the body.
While CoolSculpting patients are not subject to any downtime after their treatment, they may experience some minimal redness, whiteness, or swelling to the treatment area. In more rare cases, patients may experience feelings of tenderness, tingling, or a stinging sensation, as well as some minor bruising. Such temporary side effects are perfectly normal and will generally subside after a few days.
After a few weeks, Detroit, MI area patients will be asked to return to AMAE MedSpa for a follow-up appointment, during which the results of their CoolSculpting procedure will be assessed and additional procedures may be scheduled (if necessary).
