What is Coolsculpting?
The Coolsculpting fat reduction procedure is an incredible treatment that is an alternative to traditional liposuction. Coolsculpting uses cold technology to eliminate fat cells in specified treatment areas for permanent results with no downtime.
Am I a good candidate for Coolsculpting?
If you have areas of unwanted fat that you want to remove, you may be a great candidate! Because of the size of the applicators, Coolsculpting is best for people who have small pockets of stubborn fat. If you struggle with your weight, we can help you with our Firstline Therapy System to get down to a body size that would benefit from the Coolsculpting procedure.
You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
How much does Coolsculpting cost?
Coolsculpting is a custom procedure, and prices can be tailored for your budget and your specific treatment needs. Our Coolsculpting technicians will be able to discuss your goals and give you a price for an individualized treatment plan. Look for specials and events on our Facebook and on our email list.
What does a Coolsculpting treatment feel like?
The technician will put a layer of gel on the treatment area, and then apply the applicator. There is a slight pressure when applied, but quickly the area becomes cold and numb. When the applicator is removed, the technician will massage the treatment area and this can be described as similar to when your foot falls asleep as the tissue begins to warm up.
What happens after my Coolsculpting treatment?
The area will be numb to the touch for about a month. Some patients have reported numbness for up to 2 and a half months, although it isn’t said to be bothersome. There is no downtime. You can go back to work, or right to the gym.
When will I see my results from Coolsculpting?
Full results will emerge at 3 months, as this is how long it takes for the body to fully eliminate the dead fat cells.
How long will the results from Coolsculpting last?
The results from your Coolsculpting treatment will be permanent. The cold technology actually kills 10% of the fat cells in the treatment area, and they cannot return.
How can I get the best results from my Coolsculpting treatment?
At Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics we recommend skin tightening and/or body contouring treatments with our Alma radio frequency lasers to get the best treatment possible. Learn more about this treatment here.
What if I gain weight after my Coolsculpting treatment?
Because Coolsclpting has eliminated fat cells in the treatment areas, if you gain weight after the treatment you will gain fat more evenly throughout the body.
