Our May 19th CoolAdvantage® launch is right around the corner, and we look forward to helping you sculpt and refine your body with our new three-in-one CoolAdvantage® applicator. In order to help you prepare to freeze away unwanted fat in a relaxing and serene environment, we’ve compiled a list of patient’s Frequently Asked Questions—with answers designed to help you feel completely confident in your decision to trust us with your CoolSculpting® experience. Ready? Here’s everything you want to know about CoolSculpting®.
Q: What is CoolSculpting®?
A: CoolSculpting® technology is an innovative way to reduce fat in common “problem areas” not affected by diet and exercise. Controlled cooling applicators freeze and eliminate layers of fat cells in targeted areas, “sculpting” and smoothing away fat bulges. What does this mean for you? No more love handles, saddlebags, or abdominal fat. CoolSculpting® also works on smaller areas, like under the chin, and along the arms and legs.
Q: How is this different from other fat-reduction procedures?
A: Unlike liposuction or similar surgeries, CoolSculpting® is non-invasive, painless, and simple. No needles, no anesthesia, just a few hours spent relaxing while CoolSculpting® applicators work at freezing away your unwanted fat. Patients can resume normal activity the same day as their treatment, though they may experience some soreness or tenderness on the treated areas.
Q: How does CoolSculpting work?
A: Gel pads and a CoolSculpting® applicator—like the CoolAdvantage®—cool and gradually freeze fat cells in the targeted area. Known as cryolipolysis, chilling fat cells automatically stimulates the body’s natural removal of these cells, allowing the body to metabolize the cells and remove them through the patient’s urine. Over time, frozen areas gradually reduce in size, leaving your body looking lean and smooth.
Q: Is this a weight loss procedure?
A: No—CoolSculpting® is designed to help patients eliminate fat that does not respond to regular exercise and a healthy diet. In order to maintain optimum results, we encourage patients to continue a regular exercise regime, and to maintain a balanced diet.
Q: Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting®?
A: Healthy individuals dedicated to maintaining a fit and active lifestyle are great candidates. While not an alternative to natural weight loss or liposuction, many patients use CoolSculpting® as a complementary treatment in achieving their goal to look confident and feel beautiful. Women can receive CoolSculpting® treatments eight weeks after delivering a baby, and after liposuction or tummy tucks as determined by your doctors.
Q: When will I see results? How long will the effects of CoolSculpting® last?
A: While results vary between individual patients, most see results within two to four months following an initial treatment. Some patients benefit from additional treatments four to six weeks after their first session, and are generally pleased with the greater physical impact of multiple sessions. Fortunately, the results of each treatment are permanent. Since fat cells do not reproduce, once CoolSculpting® eliminates the cells, they do not reappear in healthy and active patients.
