CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment that eliminates areas of fat that persist despite your best efforts to slim down. This innovative treatment works by freezing fat cells. The frozen cells break down naturally, and your body removes them as waste. That means the treated fat is permanently eliminated.

The cold temperature produced by the CoolSculpting device affects only your fat cells. Fat cells are highly sensitive to the cold, more so than your skin and its supporting structures. CoolSculpting lowers the temperature just enough to freeze the fat without harming other tissues.

What body areas does CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting works well to reduce small fat pockets and eliminate those few stubborn pounds. But it doesn’t help you lose a significant amount of weight. For this reason, the best candidates for CoolSculpting are at or near their healthy body weight.

CoolSculpting gets rid of fat from:

  • Under your chin (double chin)
  • Jawline
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Upper arms
  • Upper back
  • Thighs
  • General back area
  • Under your buttocks

Your provider uses different CoolSculpting applicators designed to fit specific areas of your body.

What happens during CoolSculpting?

Your provider places a gel pad on the targeted area and then puts the CoolSculpting applicator over the pad. When the applicator is in place, they turn on the device, and your treatment begins.

At first, you might feel a sucking sensation followed by mild pulling and intense cold. As the temperature drops, you can feel stinging, tingling, or aching. These sensations quickly go away as the cold temperature numbs the tissues.

You need to relax for about 35 minutes while the device freezes the fat cells. After your provider removes the applicator, they massage the treated areas. As soon as they finish, you can go back to your usual daily activities.

After a CoolSculpting treatment, you might notice some temporary side effects. Many people experience slight swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising.

How long to see Coolsculpting results?

To get the actual result from CoolSculpting, you have to complete several rounds of it. This treatment will not deliver instant results. You will be able to realize improvement in the treated area after three weeks of your treatment and after 3 to 4 months full results of CoolSculpting will appear.

As you already know, CoolSculpting is a safe and noninvasive fat-reduction process. When your body eliminates fat cells, they will be unable to grow again. Your body will metabolize the destroyed fat cells and the treated area will become smoother. Continuous improvements you will notice and dead fat cells will be removed from your body permanently.

If you’re tired of trying to lose bulging pockets of fat, call Adult and Pediatric Dermatology or book an appointment online today.

Does Coolsculpting hurt?

CoolSculpting is a safe fat-reduction treatment. But many of us are confused about whether CoolSculpting hurts or not. It will not hurt you rather you may feel uncomfortable during CoolSculpting treatment.

The uncomfortable feeling you may have because of the process through which you are going. The doctor or healthcare professional will use gel and applicator on your targeted body area like the abdomen, chin, and thighs. As you know, the applicator is a controlled cooling device and it will freeze the stubborn fat cells so you may feel uncomfortable at that moment.

You may experience discomfort, not pain.

Because of the treatment process, you may feel discomfort during or after the CoolSculpting session. CoolSculpting will freeze the targeted area of your body which may decrease the sensation of that body part for a while. After availing of the treatment you may feel slight pain or itching, discoloration, or lump on the treatment area.

How long does Coolsculpting last?

In the CoolSculpting treatment, the cryolipolysis process is applied. This will destroy stubborn fat cells permanently. These destroyed fat cells will not return to your body again. Thus, the result from CoolSculpting will last long. A study found that the result of CoolSculpting treatment will last from 6 to 9 years.

You can maintain CoolSculpting results that last longer.

CoolSculpting will destroy your unwanted fat cells that doesn’t mean it will prevent new fat cells from growing again. You should have a healthy lifestyle to keep this result for a long time. To do so, you have to follow some guidelines to get maximum benefits.

  • Avoid weight gain: When your body gains weight, it accumulates fat cells also. So, you should avoid weight fluctuations to keep the CoolSculpting result last longer.
  • Workout regularly: Regular workouts will prevent the accumulation of stubborn fat cells.
  • Eat healthy foods: You should eat healthy foods to keep yourself healthy. Besides you should avoid those foods which will assist in increasing fat growth.
