- Posted on: Aug 8 2020
Non-surgical procedures such as CoolSculpting are becoming more popular year after year. They are quick and easy to perform, require little to no downtime, involve fewer risks than traditional operations, and require no general anesthesia. CoolSculpting is very sought-after thanks to its great results and convenience. In a nutshell, it’s a scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots. It is a safe, efficient, and long-lasting fat-freezing technology that allows the patient to resume activities right after the treatment.
You’re probably already familiar with the basic facts that make this treatment such a popular one, but if that’s not the case, have a look at our blog article on the subject: CoolSculpting: Freeze Your Unwanted Fat with No Surgery.
So, what does CoolSculpting really consist of and how do you prepare for the appointment? Let’s address the most frequently asked questions we usually receive prior to the first consultation.
How to prepare for the session
Getting ready for CoolSculpting is generally very straightforward. But, perhaps the most important thing to remember even before considering it, is that it is not a weight loss solution. The perfect candidate should be close to their ideal weight and be healthy but looking to reduce stubborn pockets of fat. Very overweight people should not seek this nonsurgical treatment; however, it provides lasting results for patients looking to get rid of stubborn bulges. It’s important that the patient has realistic goals and knows what to expect from the cryolipolysis.
Before the treatment
During the pre-treatment consultation, we will discuss your expectations, what the treatment consists of, and the different steps of the procedure. Once we have answered all your questions and you feel like you’re in good hands, you are ready for the next step!
During the procedure
The treatment process will be relatively simple for you. Once the technician has explained the details of the procedure, you can lay back and relax. Before the applicator sticks to your body, a clear gel pad will be applied to the treatment area blocking the cooling panel from your skin. While you may feel a little discomfort during the first minutes of the treatment as the cooling from the applicator begins, once the area is numb most patients find the remainder of the treatment to be comfortable. As a matter of fact, most patients watch a movie or read a book while the device freezes undesired fat cells! Each targeted area requires thirty minutes.
The great thing about CoolSculpting sessions is that the patient can get back to their usual lifestyle in no time. Once the treatment is completed, the client can expect minimal discomfort such as deep itching, numbness, or tingling. When it comes to the results, they should start to show after only three weeks, but the most noticeable results are most likely to show between two to three months following the procedure.
As you can see, CoolSculpting is an optimal solution if you are looking to get rid of stubborn and unwanted fat. It is a safe procedure that requires no anesthesia, no downtime, leaves no scars, and has a 95% satisfaction rate.
