CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that can help you say goodbye to stubborn problem spots once and for all. Patients at River Region Dermatology and Laser in Montgomery, AL, have used this treatment to get rid of unwanted fat all over the body. But just how much of an improvement does this treatment offer?
How Much Fat Can You Lose With CoolSculpting?
Results vary with each patient, but this powerful treatment system can reduce the amount of targeted fat by an average of 20 to 25 percent in a single session. The size of the area being treated has an impact on how much of an improvement is achieved, with larger areas like the abdomen or outer thighs requiring additional sessions to fully address.
Achieving this degree of fat reduction with each treatment can visibly improve the look and contour of your body. This treatment is a terrific option for patients who are already in fairly good shape and close to their goal weight, but who need help tackling stubborn areas of fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise.
How Many Sessions Are Typically Needed?
It’s not uncommon for some patients to undergo as many as four to six treatments, each scheduled at least one month apart, to achieve their cosmetic goals.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This non-invasive treatment uses precisely controlled cooling to destroy targeted fat cells. During the weeks after your treatment, your body will gradually dispose of the destroyed fat cells, resulting in a gradual slimming and refining of your physique. Optimal results are usually seen two to three months after treatment. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved treatment that uses controlled cooling to destroy unwanted fat.
During your appointments, an external device will be placed against the part of the body being treated. You’ll feel an initial chilliness as the device begins to cool fat cells, but you’ll remain comfortably reclined. This treatment can usually be completed in less than an hour, and you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule afterward.
Which Parts of the Body Can This Be Used On?
The abdomen and flanks are two of the most popular parts of the body to treat, but this treatment can also be put to work on the arms, legs, back, and even along the jawline.
Will the Cool Temperatures Damage My Skin?
The cooling delivered by this treatment system will be cold enough to disrupt the fat cells, but not cold enough to damage your skin or surrounding tissue.
Will My Results Be Permanent?
Yes. The fat that this treatment gets rid of will be gone for good, and after your initial treatment series there will be no need to schedule maintenance sessions. It will still be possible to gain weight elsewhere in your body, though, so it’s a good idea to adhere to a healthy lifestyle going forward. Continuing to exercise regularly and eat healthfully are good steps to take.
Can This Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Treatments?
Yes. Our CoolSculpting patients frequently opt to incorporate other cosmetic services into their treatment plans as well. Laser hair removal, microneedling, and spider vein treatments all make great companion treatments. We can work with you to develop a custom treatment plan that will address all of your goals.
Am I a Candidate?
You Want To Tackle Problem Spots
This is not a weight loss system. Instead, this treatment focuses on getting rid of small areas of unwanted fat. One of the many benefits associated with this treatment is its ability to hone in on particular problem spots in a way that a typical weight loss program can’t do.
If you are already in pretty good shape and simply want the additional refining that a body contouring treatment can offer, CoolSculpting is for you. This treatment system can help you get rid of problem spots you don’t like while enhancing the areas of fullness you want to keep. It gives you complete control over the way your body is shaping up.
To undergo this treatment you should be in good general health and should not be pregnant. Patients also should not have pacemakers or defibrillators.
You Understand the Treatment
The best patients understand how this treatment works and are realistic about the type of improvement it offers, which is typically less drastic than what can be accomplished with surgery.
You Want a Convenient Solution
If you’re looking for a convenient, easy way of shaping up your body, this treatment system may be for you. Appointments are relatively short and can easily be worked into a lunch hour. And because no anesthesia is involved, you won’t have to set aside time for recovery. This is a no-fuss way of achieving results.
