CoolSculpting Q & A
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a quick, effective treatment that uses the fat-freezing power of cold lasers to eliminate unwanted fat. An FDA-cleared technology, CoolSculpting provides long-lasting results without invasive surgery.
CoolSculpting is ideal for whittling away visible bulges of fat in one or more areas. Even though this therapy can give you a leaner appearance that makes it look like you've lost weight, it's not intended to replace a healthy diet and exercise.
What areas does CoolSculpting treat?
CoolSculpting addresses most problem areas where fat accumulates. This includes your:
- Bra and back fat
- Upper arms
- Love handles
- Below your buttocks
You also may opt for CoolSculpting to freeze facial fat around your jawline and under your chin.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to eliminate fat permanently. Extreme cold harms fat cells, which freeze at a specific temperature. Your body then disposes of the unwanted fat cells over the next 2-6 months after treatment.
What happens during CoolSculpting treatment?
You can expect your practitioner at the skin care clinic of Meridian Plastic Surgery to place a clear gel pad on your treatment area(s) to act as a barrier between the cooling applicator and your skin. They next apply the applicator to your skin. You feel a sucking sensation and intense cold. These feelings recede as your treatment area grows numb.
CoolSculpting requires no downtime, but you may see some temporary swelling or redness after your session. You can resume your usual routine as soon as you leave the skin care clinic at Meridian Plastic Surgery.
How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?
Your skin care clinic practitioner recommends an optimal treatment plan after discussing your desired results with you. They typically suggest a series of treatments to achieve the greatest amount of fat loss.
When will I see results from CoolSculpting sessions?
Some patients see results in just 60 days. However, individual results vary.
In general, your body needs time to remove all of the destroyed fat cells, so you may not see full results for 2-6 months. You should expect up to a 20-25% reduction of fat in your treatment area(s). As long as you maintain your weight, your results are permanent.
