Why should you choose the procedure?

Sculpsure has remained the procedure of choice for a variety of reasons. This method is time-efficient and takes a maximum of 25 minutes. This procedure does not cause pain; the heating of the fat cells usually requires temperatures of about 42 degrees which cause no harm to the skin. It has been shown that over 90% of the clients have reported satisfaction from this procedure.

How to prepare for the treatment?

People are required to inform their doctor before this procedure, especially if they have any medical conditions. This will help their doctor plan for their procedure and also determine whether they are fit for it. After this, they will be instructed to avoid some medication that causes bruising or bleeding.

How does Sculpsure work?

Sculpsure utilizes laser technology and works by lipolysis of the excess fat in the region. Your doctor will instruct you to be in an inclined position and then ensure you are comfortable. This is followed by having the device wrapped around the area with excess fat. This device is then switched to deliver temperatures of about 42 degrees which is enough to eliminate the excess fat, but it does not affect any other tissue. It is done in such a way that there are episodes of cooling alternated with heating episodes. It is a short procedure that usually takes about 25 minutes. The cells heated during the process are eliminated by the lymphatic system usually after around 12 weeks after treatment.

Does CoolSculpting treatment work for body shaping?

CoolSculpting can aid body shaping, though the effectiveness depends on two criteria:

  1. The target area the patient wants to treat must have pinchable fat
  2. The skin tone of the patient must not have too much laxity or excess skin.

Patients that meet these standards are excellent candidates for this procedure. If you are also looking to minimize or tone up specific areas of your body which retain unnecessary fat, despite dieting and exercises, then CoolSculpting will work for you.

Are CoolSculpting treatments expensive?

The price for undergoing the CoolSculpting procedure depends mainly on the areas you intend to target, the number of treatments you will need and your final goal. For belly and thigh areas, the cost of CoolSculpting ranges between $1,200 and $1,600 respectively. The typical price for this treatment on love handles is around $700-$1,400.Treating the butt area will cost you nothing less than between $700-$800.

What should I do before CoolSculpting treatment?

Your physician is in the best position to advise on what to do and what not to do before your CoolSculpting treatment. However, the following are some of the things you must do before the day of your CoolSculpting treatment:

  • Keep away from supplements or medications such as fish oil, aspirin, etc.
  • Do not damage the skin around the target areas for CoolSculpting treatment
  • Eat healthy foods before your procedure
  • Do not tan the skin around the target areas for treatment
  • Do not smoke for approximately one week before your CoolSculpting session.

 

On the day of your CoolSculpting treatment:

  • Ensure that you wear comfortable and loose clothing. If you are female, you should wear a bra and underwear
  • Eat a light meal before showing up for your session
  • Bring a change of clothes in case the gel that is applied to your skin stains your clothes
  • Take along your iPad, book or magazine that will occupy your attention throughout the session
  • Be ready to take a few pictures of the target areas before the treatment commences. This is to help you spot the changes quickly at the end of the session

Who can't have CoolSculpting treatment?

CoolSculpting is beneficial and extremely effective, but unfortunately, it is not for everyone. It is not the right program for treating obesity or for skin tightening. It is also not the correct procedure if you have:

  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria
  • Cold agglutinin disease

What should I expect during CoolSculpting treatment?

CoolSculpting procedures can take from one to more than a few hours, though this depends mostly on your treatment plan. You will not need to take or use any pain medication or topical anesthesia. You will experience moments of intense tingling, stinging, cramping or aching. But these sensations diminish when the area becomes numb.

What are the side effects of CoolSculpting treatment?

During the procedure, you may feel some sensations of tugging, pulling, mild pinching, aching, intense cold, cramping, and stinging at the target site. Once the area becomes numb, these sensations reduce significantly. Following the CoolSculpting process, the usual side effects include swelling, temporary redness, firmness, blanching, tenderness, and bruising. You may also experience skin sensitivity, itching, cramping, and aching. For a submental procedure, expect to perceive a sensation of fullness at the back of your throat. These effects are not permanent and will subside within days or weeks.

How many treatments will provide results?

Your CoolSculpting doctor is responsible for creating a treatment plan. It will be customized to fit your personal goals. The length or duration of your CoolSculpting treatment varies since it depends on the number of areas you want to treat during one visit. The latest CoolSculpting equipment can treat one patient within 35-60 minutes, even if the patient has more than one treatment during the same appointment. A few practices employ the use of multiple CoolSculpting tools along with applicators. This makes it possible to treat various areas at once.

 

What Are the Advantages of CoolSculpting Treatments?

Fat cells – unlike with exercise and diet – are destroyed and eliminated from the body. This implies that the same cells cannot return or become enlarged with weight gain. Additionally, this procedure offers low risk and a natural-looking result. Your skin remains intact, which means the risk of scarring or infection is non-existent.
