The CoolSculpting Process: How CoolSculpting Is Done And What To Expect
CoolSculpting is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat cooling technology designed specifically for fat reduction. You might have stumbled upon this page because you’ve seen the myriad of amazing before-and-after photos and want that difference for yourself. Or, you’ve done a bit of research but are feeling a bit hesitant wondering whether a non-invasive treatment can really reduce fat by up to 20-25 percent in a treated area. We get it. How can a treatment offer such great results? The CoolSculpting process might be shrouded in a bit of mystery, but we’re going to dive in to show you how CoolSculpting is done and what you can expect from your CoolSculpting treatment.
How Does The CoolSculpting Process Work?
It’s important to know how the cryolipolysis (AKA CoolSculpting) process works to get an understanding of what to expect both during and after treatment. The CoolSculpting technology – founded back in 2008 – leverages how our bodies naturally shrink fat cells. Through the process of exercise and healthy eating, we’re able to naturally shrink the fat cells in our bodies. However, many of us may stumble into a brick wall along our paths to a healthier body. While fat cells are able to shrink, they are not removed from the body. Instead, they are pocketed where they remain, waiting to grow again if we slip up on our healthy lifestyles.
CoolSculpting targets those very pockets of fat cells. During a CoolSculpting treatment, the CoolSculpting applicators are carefully placed to target pockets of shrunken fat cells in our bodies and then crystallizing fat cells until they are frozen and die off and then gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes. This FDA-cleared technology is able to target and freeze fat cells specifically, so it leaves other organs in our bodies completely unaffected by the treatment.
How Is CoolSculpting Done?
The CoolSculpting process is a 30-minute treatment. An applicator is placed on the area for treatment (this can be anywhere you want treated — tummy, arms, chin, etc.). Once applied successfully, the applicator cools the area of the body, effectively freezing the fat cells.
What Sensations Should I Expect During Treatment?
During a CoolSculpting treatment, you will feel a cooling sensation as the technology goes to work. While experiences may vary, some people may feel a slight numbing sensation during the treatment. During this time, many patients relax, watch TV, read magazines, or even take a nap!
What Sensations Should I Expect After Treatment?
Many patients go about their normal day after CoolSculpting — going back to work or out to lunch, hanging out with friends, or even shopping for a dream outfit to celebrate their first step towards a more sculpted body. While there might be a slight soreness and/or numbness after the treatment, it should disappear over a short amount of time.
Can I Expect Results Immediately?
The CoolSculpting process freezes and then kills fat cells. After the process, the fat cells gradually die off and remain until the body naturally carries them out. During this time, you don’t have to make any behavioral changes. You should simply maintain your healthy lifestyle!
For many people, the initial results are noticeable as quickly as 2-3 weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring 2-3 months post-treatment. The benefit to the CoolSculpting process — beyond the targeted sculpting — is that the very nature of the CoolSculpting technology removes the worry along with the fat. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
Is CoolSculpting Right For Me?
CoolSculpting is a treatment to help move you along your fat reduction journey faster and more effectively than you could achieve on your own. It’s not meant to be the only way to reduce fat; but rather, CoolSculpting should be seen as the cherry on the top – an aid to your already amazing efforts to sculpt your body!
