Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Everybody (and every body) is different, but generally speaking, if you are within 15 – 20 pounds of your ideal weight and healthy, yet still have pockets of stubborn body fat despite diet and exercise, CoolSculpting may be able to help.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The total cost can vary depending on the area(s) being treated and the number of treatments that are needed. The type of treatment is also a factor, as certain areas of the body respond better to different treatment types.
How many treatments will I need? How long does it take?
The recommended number of treatments can vary depending on the area(s) being treated. During your free initial consultation, Dr. Binhlam will discuss your specific needs with you and tailor a treatment plan to meet those needs. Each session takes approximately one hour.
What does a CoolSculpting treatment feel like? Does it hurt?
During the first few minutes of the treatment, you may feel intense cold in the area being treated as cooling begins. This will go away as the area temporarily becomes numb. Depending on the area being treated, you may also feel some pressure or a “pulling” sensation as suction is applied to the skin. Most patients do not report experiencing any pain and are able to read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during treatment.
Are there any side effects of the treatment?
CoolSculpting is a completely noninvasive and nonsurgical method of fat reduction that allows patients to return to normal activities like work and exercise right away. In fact, many patients report returning to work the same day as their treatment. Side effects of the CoolSculpting treatment are minor. Temporary redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising as a result of the application of intense cold are the most common side effects.
How soon will I see results?
The most dramatic results are typically seen within 1 to 3 months of treatment, however, you may start to notice changes in as little as 3 weeks. Patients report noticing a slimmer, tighter appearance and a noticeable reduction of body fat in the treated areas. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months following your treatment.
