CoolSculpting® at Skin Solutions
Muffin top? Bra bulge? Spare tire? CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-invasive technology that freezes away unwanted fat cells in the targeted area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Each CoolSculpting procedure results in an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated area.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend the one to two hours of procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
Results can be seen in as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the best results occurring over the next two to four months.
What happens during CoolSculpting?
First, the Skin Solutions aesthetician will apply a clear gel pad to the treatment area. This creates a barrier between the cooling panel and skin. As the system begins to work, you will feel a slight sucking sensation as the applicator draws the area being treated up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. During the procedure you may experience mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. However, these sensations subside as the area becomes numb. During treatment you will be able to read, answer emails, or chat with a friend. After treatment your Skin Solutions aesthetician will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance fat reduction.
Can I return to normal activities after CoolSculpting?
Yes. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-invasive, so you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
What will the results be?
The CoolSculpting® procedure can reduce the fat layer by 20%. If your treatment plan calls for a second procedure, an additional 20% reduction can be experienced. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the patient.
How long will it take to see CoolSculpting 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. However, your body will continue to flush fat cells for up to five months.
Are CoolSculpting results permanent?
During the CoolSculpting® procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
