Coolsculpting Frequently Asked Questions
At our Birmingham Med Spa we have helped hundreds of men & women get the bodies they want with CoolSculpting. In this article we answer some of our patients most frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting!
How long does a CoolSculpting take?
The typical CoolSculpting procedure in our Birmingham Med Spa only takes from 35 to 60 minutes. It will depend upon the number of areas you wish to treat. Some patients have only one area of stubborn fat to target, while others may want to treat multiple areas during the same office visit.
Since no anesthetic is needed, the time flies by while you read, text, check email, listen to music or even take a nap during your CoolSculpting!
Where can CoolSculpting reduce fat on the body?
CoolSculpting can remove fat from almost any areas of the body, except calves or ankles. In the USA, CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for the elimination of visible fat on the thighs, “belly”, “muffin top” (flanks), back, buttocks, upper arms and even the neck or “double chin”.
In some men CoolSculpting may also be used to remove fat pockets from male breasts. However, when actual breast tissue needs to be removed in men or women other procedures such as liposuction or gynecomastia surgery may be a better option.
How many CoolSculpting treatments does it take?
Sometimes just a single treatment is required to treat smaller amounts of fat in isolated areas of the body. For larger areas of stubborn fat, or when treatment multiple areas of the body, multiple treatments may be needed.
We will offer you a consultation at our Birmingham Med Spa to create an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to your specific fat loss goals.
Is CoolSculpting permanent?
Absolutely! The fat cells are frozen – which destroys them – and they are then gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes. And once the fat cells are eliminated, they are gone permanently and cannot come back. CoolSculpting actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas by up to 25%.
When will I see the my Coolsculpting results?
Most people begin to see the fat loss as soon as 3 weeks after CoolSculpting. The most dramatic results will usually be seen after about 2 months. However, the body continues to flush out the destroyed fat cells for 4 to 6 month – after which time you will see the complete results.
Does CoolSculpting hurt?
No! CoolSculpting is non-surgical and completely non-invasive. There is no incision. Initially, patients may feel extreme cold on the target area. Soon (within 5 to 10 minutes) the treated area becomes numb, and the cold sensation subsides.
The only other thing you may feel is some pulling, tugging, or mild pinching as the treated area is “vacuumed” into the CoolSculpting handpiece. Some people find it slightly uncomfortable, however most men and women do find it tone painful at all.
After the procedure, you may experience some brief, temporary redness, swelling, whiteness, bruising, tingling, stinging – and in rare cases tenderness is possible. Rest assured these after-effects are 100% normal and completely temporary – going away in a days or two – or a week at most.
