If you’re finally ready to lose that stubborn excess fat once and for all – and get the body you’ve always wanted – CoolSculpting is the answer! In this article, the fat loss experts at AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, Mi area take you through the CoolSculpting process “step by step” so you know exactly what to expect!
1.) The CoolSculpting Consultation
Your first step is to schedule a consultation in our Troy, MI area Med Spa to discuss your body sculpting goals and fat loss desires.
Dr. Ali will answer all of your questions and put together a treatment plan that is right for you and your budget. If you would like, our helpful office staff can also assist you with easy financing options, too!
During your consultation Dr. Ali will examine your whole body from every different angle, take your measurements, and identify those specific areas where you would like to eliminate fat.
He will tell you if he thinks one CoolSculpting treatment may be enough for you – or if a customized treatment plan including multiple treatments will be required for optimal fat loss and body sculpting.
2.) The CoolSculpting Treatment
Because CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure there is not much you need to do to prepare for the big day! Take a shower before you come, but avoid using any creams or lotions on or near the areas to be treated. You can bring a book, your phone or an iPad if you like. Many CoolSculpting patients listen to music or even relax and dose off during their CoolSculpting treatment.
There are no incisions – so no anesthetic is needed before your CoolSculpting procedure.
After you are comfortable on the table, a gel pad and applicator will be applied onto the area of fat to be treated. It will feel quite chilly at first. But the intense cold quickly numbs the area – usually in 10 minutes or so – so any discomfort from the cold typically subsides.
The CoolSculpting handheld applicator utilizes a very mild vacuum technology to draw the body’s fat tissue into the applicator’s cup. Sometimes this results in a slight pulling, tugging, or pinching sensation. Most patients describe it only as slightly uncomfortable, universally agreeing that it is not what you would call painful.
You can read, listen to music, text, email, or even take a nap during CoolSculpting – which helps pass the time and take your mind off of any unusual sensations.
The entire CoolSculpting process typically only takes from a half hour to an hour. The length of time will depend upon how much fat needs to be frozen and how many body areas are being treated. After the appointment you can drive yourself home. Most CoolSculpting patients return to normal daily activities, such as running errands or returning to work afterwards.
3.) Seeing the Results after CoolSculpting
There is absolutely no downtime after CoolSculpting. For a few days after the procedure, there may be some temporary redness, swelling, or whiteness. Some patients may also experience some bruising, tingling, stinging, or tenderness. Don’t worry – this is a perfectly normal side-effect from the “vacuum” suction portion of the process.
All of these mild “side effects” are completely temporary and will typically go away in a few days. At most they may last a week or two. A follow-up assessment will be scheduled at our Troy, MI area Med Spa in a couple weeks to review your results, as well as to schedule additional CoolSculpting treatments, if necessary.
Your body will gradually eliminate the dead fat cells that were destroyed by freezing. Your initial results should begin to be seen in as little as two to three weeks. After three months your fat loss results should be very visible. And in no more than 5 to 6 months, all of the fat cells will have been flushed from the body to reveal your final results.
And, best of all, the fat cells that have been eliminated will never come back! Adults cannot create new fat cells, so once CoolSculpting destroys the fat cells they care gone for good – and fat loss results in that area are permanent.
