What To Expect Before & After CoolSculpting®: Is It Right for You?

Summer is right around the corner! If you have been working out and living a healthy lifestyle but you still have stubborn fat holding on, CoolSculpting may be right for you. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure done in the comfort of our office to permanently destroy fat cells.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

This treatment targets pockets of subcutaneous fat, which is typically the “jiggly” fat that is just under the skin. CoolSculpting works by lightly suctioning the fat into the device’s handpiece and freezing the stubborn fat. Your body will naturally kill those targeted fat cells, leaving your treatment area slimmer and trimmer. You can see some of the results our patients have achieved in the before and after photos below and in our photo gallery.

The number of cycles and treatments you’ll need will depend on the area and individual factors. Learn more about CoolSculpting treatments in our related blog post.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Consultation?

We require an in-person consultation prior to scheduling your treatment for a few reasons. First, it is important to discuss how the treatment works and what to expect with your provider. She will be able to answer any and all of your questions and/or concerns. Next, we will complete a hands-on assessment to feel the fat you’re wanting to target. This will allow your provider to determine if you are a candidate and if she thinks the fat will respond to treatment.

At your consultation, your treatment plan will be created and we will give you a personalized quote. We can then proceed with booking your first treatment. We require a 10% deposit to reserve your treatment time due to appointments ranging from 1 to 4 hours. CoolSculpting consultations and appointments are available Monday through Friday every week.

What Happens After a CoolSculpting Treatment?

The skin in your treatment area may feel tender or sore afterward. Minor swelling, redness, tingling, or a stinging sensation is also common. CoolSculpting doesn’t require any downtime, so you can return to your usual daily activities after your treatment.

Your body gradually processes the frozen fat cells, eliminating them over the weeks following treatment. You may begin to see your results developing a couple of weeks after treatment, and they will continue to improve. You should see your full results about 3 months after your CoolSculpting session.
