CoolSculpting – What’s The Deal?
You might have heard of it, but you might not have the first clue what it’s about. The problem with such misunderstanding or lack of knowledge however is that you might be missing out on something that could really help you out.
If you have stubborn areas of fat which simply won’t wave goodbye, despite trying the conventional diet and exercise route, then this is a new treatment which could seriously benefit you.
To help answer your questions, here are the common queries related to this new and exciting innovation.
What exactly is CoolSculpting?
The FDA recently cleared this procedure, which is a fat-freezing treatment, designed to help get rid of stubborn areas of fat which refuse to go despite diet and exercise. This is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, which uses cooling efforts to break down fat cells and allow the body to disperse of them as naturally as possible.
It is estimated that in just one treatment, around a quarter of fat cells treated are damaged, which allows the body to do its own work.
Who can have CoolSculpting?
A high proportion of people who head in for a consultation are given the green light to undergo the treatment. The area of fat you want to be treated needs to be the stubborn type, and not too large, i.e. it needs to be called subcutaneous fat, rather than veserial. This means that it is the type which is wobbly and you can grab, and hasn’t responded to other conservative measures. If your consultation gives you the green light, you are free to undergo the treatment.
How does CoolSculpting work?
There is no pain, so don’t worry about that! A small device is placed on the part of the body which is receiving the treatment, and you won’t feel anything other than perhaps a small amount of tingling. The device works to pull in the area of fat between the cooling section of the device, and freezing begins, and takes around 5-10 minutes. The area treated will go numb, but nothing other than that, and you get to sit and put your feet up for an hour until the treatment is complete.
Which areas of the body can CoolSculpting help?
Any area which hasn’t responded to diet and exercise, and which isn’t too large. The most commonly treated areas include the abdomen, the thighs, love handles, and the area which sits below the bra line.
Is there any down time?
No! Because the procedure is non-surgical, you are free to go back to work or resume normal duties straightaway. There are obviously possible side effects with everything in life, and in the case of CoolSculpting, this can mean a little redness on the area which was treated, maybe a little bruising, or numbness/discomfort, however these symptoms should all disappear on their own quite quickly.
How quickly will the results show themselves?
Results will show quite quickly, however it is around the two months’ mark when the most drastic results will be evident. This is because for the time after the treatment, the body is still doing its work to eradicate those damaged fat cells, and this takes a little time to complete.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting treatment corresponds directly to the amount of treatment desired. Trifecta Med Spa in New York offers complementary CoolSculpting consultation and it comes with a customized treatment plan. Treatments are charged based on the number of applicator placements (areas). Most applicators cost $750 per placement, and are on the body for one hour of computer-controlled cooling, followed by a few minute massage.
