How is CoolSculpting performed?

Cryolipolysis is used with CoolSculpting, this technology is used to target and remove stubborn fat deposits that are found throughout the body. The treatment areas will have a CoolSculpting lubricated sheet applied over top, and then the appliance is placed on top of the treatment area. Once the appliance is in place, the CoolSculpting machine will be turned on, and the treatment will begin. Some patients have mentioned they feel a pulling, or pinching feeling, as well as a tightening sensation, after a few minutes the feeling will go away. This is when you may start to feel the cooling effects from the temperature change begin, as the CoolSculpting technology will start cooling the area down to freezing temperatures to kill the fat cells. On average, the CoolSculpting appointment will take between 30 to 60 minutes to finish. Once your treatment has finished, the appliance will be removed, as well as the sheet and the massage aspect of the treatment will begin on the treated area, this massage is done as a means to help kickstart the dead fat deposit removal process.

The CoolSculpting treatment is virtually painless other than the pinching/pulling and cooling feeling, as well due to the non-invasive technique that CoolSculpting offers, the patient gets to enjoy their day thereafter without any recovery or downtime after their treatment.

What can I expect for my first visit?

During your first appointment, your doctor or the provider will mark the treatment areas that will be targeted, as they will be a placement guide for the CoolSculpting device. Once the CoolSculpting machine applicator is placed, the treatment will commence. As the skin begins to reach cooler temperatures, the patient may begin to feel sensations of tingling, pulling, and pinching, which is as expected and a normal part of the process. For the duration of the treatment, patients can relax, and enjoy quiet time by having a nap, reading a book etc. Once the time has been completed, the CoolSculpting applicator will be removed.

Once the treatment is completed, the patients may begin to feel a bit numb on the treated area, this is the only time you’ll feel this and it will last a small amount of time usually 30 to 60 minutes after. Over the weeks after the treatment, the treated area fat cells will start to be flushed out of the body gradually, and show a smaller, smoother, and much more sculpted area of the body with a visible reduction of fat.

How to Speed Up CoolSculpting Results?

There are a few things you can do to help speed up the CoolSculpting results and flush out the dead fat cells. The first thing that helps is exercise. Exercise naturally has many benefits, some of which you already know about which are providing a more sculpted healthy appearance, burning calories and removing water and fat. Although exercise is not a part of your treatment plan with CoolSculpting, it does help to boost and maintain the results of your CoolSculpting treatment. Combining exercise and healthy eating habits, you are showcasing healthy habits and what to do when you want to target fat reduction while maintaining your CoolSculpting results for the long term.

Our patients have noticed and seen results from their own personal CoolSculpting treatments, as it has helped to not only boost their fat reduction but also boost their confidence and self-esteem. Exercise also provides a healthy body outlook, but it is a major factor in the process of fat reduction, as it releases dopamine during and after every workout, this chemical substance that is found in the brain will leave you feeling euphoria which will make you want to continue.

While exercise is a great option to include in your CoolSculpting treatment plan, it’s not the only option. Water consumption is even better as it flushes out the dead fat cells faster, which in turn will show the CoolSculpting results quicker.

What to avoid after CoolSculpting?

Try not to drink or consume a lot of high sugar items, or things that are not good for you. Eat healthy, exercise, and make sure to bring enough water.

CoolSculpting provides an effective treatment for many areas of the body but specifically targets the hips and love handles.
