We all find ourselves striving to eliminate unwanted fat. They say you are your worst critic, which is why confidence is key. There are many ranges of body types, and sometimes, fat doesn’t distribute itself in the places we hope it would.
Some of us have a fast metabolism, some have a slow metabolism, however, almost everybody is a candidate for the CoolSculpting treatment. Whether you want to abolish stubborn fat, that doesn’t go away no matter how many hours you spend in the gym, or you want to skip the gym altogether, CoolSculpting is for you.
Using a technique called “cryolipolysis”, CoolSculpting works by bringing the temperature of fat cells down to an almost freezing point, destroying them, and causing our bodies to excrete them over the following 1-5 months.
Although most patients notice a significant decrease in inches around the treated area after just their first session, many require a minimum of 2 sessions per area for visible results.

Your CoolSculpting consultation process should proceed as follows:
Once you schedule your consultation, you would meet with your Medical Aesthetician. During your consultation, the process of CoolSculpting is thoroughly explained, and a stubborn fat assessment is performed to confirm that you are the ideal candidate for the treatment. Once that is complete, your Medical Aesthetician will go over realistic expectations with you, and discuss how many sessions they would recommend you treat per area.
During the CoolSculpting procedure, each treatment area takes 60minutes to treat. Multiple areas are safe to treat in one day, and most patients do anywhere between 2-8 treatment areas per day, equalling a total session time of approximately 2-8 hours. If you choose to split up your treatment, that is also an option, as many patients may not have time to do the full treatment at once.
The CoolSculpting procedure is incredibly comfortable. You may experience some discomfort during the beginning and end of each hour of treatment, which lasts for a maximum of 5 minutes. Patients are free to go about their day following the procedure, as it requires no down time.
Side effects may include temporary swelling, bruising, and a “heavy feeling” in the treated area. All side effects subside within a few days to a few weeks.
Although CoolSculpting is a procedure which doesn’t require patients to alter their life style or diets for positive results, it is a proven fact that the more water patients drink, and the healthier their diets are, the quicker and more effective their results tend to be.
