Does CoolSculpting work? How?

Posted by Nima | October 6, 2020

There are so many different tips and tricks when it comes to getting rid of unwanted fat. Some definitely work, others not so much. So, what about CoolSculpting? We hope that you have heard nothing but good about our beloved treatment. If not, we are here to set the record straight about what CoolSculpting is and what it is not. Does CoolSculpting really work? We’ll answer that question as well as many common questions asked surrounding the procedure. Let’s begin at the beginning, shall we? 

CoolSculpting 101 

What is this treatment and how does it work? CoolSculpting is a treatment that removes fat cells from areas on the body that you just can’t get rid of. This is for the really stubborn fat. The fat that just won’t go away even after all the diet and exercise. This can be the abdomen, the back, arms, and even knees. CoolSculpting is the only FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved fat removal service. That stamp of approval is important to remember as you continue reading.  

How does it work? After your free consultation you will be set up with a number of sessions and how lengthy those sessions will be. During each session you will have our CoolSculpting machine placed on the areas that we deemed you needed, and you’ll just sit back and relax. The sensation may be uncomfortable at first, but our customers say they end up getting used to it. Most people will read, finish some work, or even take a nap during their session. After your session you can redeem your regular agenda. Go back to work or whatever you planned for your day.  

The way that CoolSculpting works is really interesting! The machine we place on the area uses intense cooling and pulling to freeze fat cells and only fat cells. Once these fat cells are frozen, your body naturally gets rid of them. Once the fat cells are gone, they won’t ever come back. If you do end up gaining some weight it won’t be able to focus in the area that was CoolSculpted. During your session you may feel pinching, numbness, deep pulling, tugging, or discomfort but, like we said before, our customers report getting used to the sensation. Although you are able to leave and do whatever you please after your session you may feel temporary numbness, bruising, tingling, stinging, firmness, redness, pain, or swelling. Most side effects are temporary but there are some rare side effects that could happen. Everyone’s experience is different, of course, and we’ll be able to help you along the way.   

There are some folks that CoolSculpting will not be best for. Those people include those who have cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or those who are obese, CoolSculpting is not a treatment for obesity. At your free consultation, our experts will be able to help you understand whether CoolSculpting is right for you.  

When do you see results?  

Like most things results will vary per person and will vary depending on where you go the session and how many sessions you got. Some people see results as soon as three whole weeks! That being said, most folks don’t see results until the two-month mark. The fat cells may continue to be flushed out as late at six months. It all really depends on your body type and the amount of fat you are getting CoolSculpted. A great thing we mentioned a bit before is that if you do end up gaining a bit of weight back, the fat cells cannot settle in the area that you got the treatment on. It generally spreads and is more even, but most folks are very pleased with the results that they take the time to ensure they are at their best and happiest self.  

Another question we get a lot is are there other options? And yes, there are! Are they as good as CoolSculpting? We’ll let you decide. Here are a few other options that we are aware of: Liposuction, diet and exercise, radiofrequency lipolysis or vanquish, TruSculpt, Kybella (we also offer Kybella). Kybella is specifically made for “double chins” and is not an all over body treatment as the rest of these are. Most of these treatments or operations are intrusive and require down time. There is also the possibility of scarring. Of course, we require you to try diet and exercise before trying CoolSculpting, but if you have stubborn fat that’s likely why you are here! Where can you get CoolSculpting? We are glad you asked!
