What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is not your run of the mill body-contouring procedure. Most fat reduction procedures require lasers or surgery, which can damage the surrounding healthy tissue, causing deep bruising or bleeding. Traditional procedures you have seen in the past are great, and have amazing results, but do have drawbacks. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical technique that is used to reduce fat in areas. It uses cold temperatures to freeze stubborn fat cells. This procedure was created to address certain areas of stubborn fat not responsive to diet and exercise.
What Happens During My CoolSculpting Treatment?
You will first have a consult to discuss the areas you are trying to address. During the treatment the applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by the cooling effect. You may experience slight pulling, mild pinching, intense cold, aching, or cramping on the treatment site. The sensations will calm down as the treatment area becomes numb. After the applicator is removed the provider will briefly massage the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance fat reduction.
How Long Does A Treatment Take?
Each and every CoolSculpting treatment is different. It solely depends on which areas of the body you are wanting to treat and how many areas you plan on doing. Depending on the area, treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes. However, if you are treating multiple areas expect to spend more time. Here at Ashley McFarland Aesthetics we make sure we are as efficient as possible with your time in our chair.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
CoolSculpting is a case by case procedure. You will see up to 20-25% fat reduction after a single treatment, but it depends on the person and the area that is being treated. We will communicate with you before treatment on if we think additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal.
What Will I See Results?
You will start to see changes as soon as 1-3 months post treatment. Final results may take up to 6 months of more!
