CoolSculpting is not for people who are severely overweight or considered medically obese, however, a good candidate may have bulges in a few areas they would like to get rid of. It is a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Is the CoolSculpting Procedure Safe?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure for the thigh, flank (love handles), and abdomen. The CoolSculpting procedure is performed worldwide, and with over a track record of over 1.5 million CoolSculpting procedures performed, it’s been validated to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
Where Does the Fat Go?
CoolSculpting crystallizes the treated fat cells. These frozen cells die, and are naturally discarded from the body. Once the cells are gone, they are gone for good leaving patients slimmer and more toned looking.
How Soon Will I See the Results, & How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
What Happens During the Procedure?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on the appropriate area of your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull with adequate pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. Depending on your needs, your session should last approximately sixty minutes.
Can I Return to Normal Activities After the Procedure?
After a CoolSculpting procedure, most patients are able to return to work and resume normal activities immediately. In the areas that have been treated, some patients report redness, tingling, numbness, or minor bruising. Side effects, if any, will be minimal and only temporary.
