Is There Any Downtime With Coolsculpting® Treatment?
Because Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive weight loss intervention, there is little to no downtime associated with it. Following treatment, most patients can immediately resume their regular routines. However, some may notice additional swelling and redness in the treatment area for a week or two following therapy.
*Individual Results May Vary
Coolsculpting® is an FDA-cleared technique for reducing fat and contouring the body without piercing the skin. It works by using freezing energy to target and eliminate fat cells that won’t respond to diet and exercise alone.
To perform the treatment, Dr. Schalit places bulges of fat between freezing panels. These cool down the fat cells caught in the middle, causing them to lose integrity and deactivate. Once they die, the body’s immune system removes them and transports them for processing and disposal.
Clinical trials that looked at the clinical efficacy of Coolsculpting® found that it reduced the fat content of treated areas by as much as 21 percent, producing visible results.
Please note that because it takes time for the body to process and eliminates dead fat cells, the effects of Coolsculpting® are not immediate. Instead, they gradually appear over several weeks and months. Subcutaneous fat recedes, revealing toned, lean tissue underneath.
Benefits of Coolsculpting®
Coolsculpting® offers a host of benefits that set it apart from other cosmetic fat reduction therapies.
Non-invasive. Unlike other fat removal procedures, Coolsculpting® does not require any cutting or piercing of the skin.
Proven fat loss. Even though Coolsculpting® is entirely non-invasive, clinical evidence indicates that it can produce significant fat loss.
Results visible within eight to twelve weeks. Most patients start to see results from Coolsculpting® within two to three months, with the first signs appearing after a fortnight or so.
FDA-Approved. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves Coolsculpting® and reports that it can reduce fat loss in target areas by as much as 21 percent after the first treatment.
Efficiency. With Coolsculpting®, you can target multiple problem areas in a single session, dealing with numerous stubborn deposits of fat all at once. Patients can address problem areas on the chin, flanks, upper arms, stomach, thighs, buttocks, and many other regions in a single procedure.
Unlike many procedures to remove fat (such as tummy tucks), Coolsculpting® does not require any downtime. Patients can carry on with their usual activities immediately after treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Coolsculpting®?
Coolsculpting® is a treatment designed to target stubborn fat deposits that won’t respond to diet and exercise alone. Thus, the ideal candidate is somebody who is already committed to weight loss and striving to achieve it.
Before Coolsculpting®, you should be within around 20 to 30 pounds of your healthy body weight.
