Our CoolSculpting Elite patients will need 1 to 3 treatments. The total duration of the treatment time required depends on the area to be treated and the number of CoolSculpting Elite applicators used. While each patient is different, most patients benefit from one to three sessions for each area of interest. We recommend that patients wait at least 60 days before removing from any area.
Our dermatologists can work with you to design a personalized treatment plan that will help you meet or even exceed your goals. The number of times CoolSculpting should be performed depends on the amount of fat in the area being treated. If it's a small movement, a single treatment session should be enough to destroy fat cells in the area. Larger areas, such as a large neck or submental fat, or a large abdomen, may need two or more treatments to remove fat cells from the area.
Green will evaluate the area and give you an honest assessment in terms of the number of treatments and which applicators would be the best for having the best body contouring experience. A rare side effect of pain has been associated with some patients after CoolSculpting, which can be treated with oral medications such as Neurontin, and also resolves within a few weeks. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that works to reduce stubborn fat by freezing fat cells in specific areas through a process called cryolipolysis. If you're quite satisfied with your weight, but aren't entirely satisfied with the look and feel of your clothes, you may be a good candidate for body shaping with the CoolSculpting device.
Almost all CoolSculpting treatment plans are more affordable than invasive fat reduction treatments, and it's good to note that CoolSculpting results are permanent, as long as the patient doesn't gain weight dramatically after treatment. Continuing a healthy and active lifestyle is highly recommended to maintain the best results after CoolSculpting. Whether it's fat lumps in the abdomen, love handles, bra fat or neck, arms, inner or outer thighs, CoolSculpting has a unique applicator that is specially tailored for each individual area and treatment plan. While not all medical spas are created equal, there have been instances where negligent medical spas have caused aesthetic problems when it comes to CoolSculpting or dermal fillers.
Although medical spas may offer free consultations or discounted treatments, these appointments are often conducted without the supervision of a medical professional and, in exceptional cases, a medical professional may not be on site while the CoolSculpting procedure is being performed. After CoolSculpting, destroyed fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. Many women treat bra fat along with slimming their upper arms with CoolSculpting for painless, effective and non-invasive body contouring. CoolSculpting was initially designed to treat abdominal fat, but has since evolved to treat other areas of the body, such as the flanks, double chin (submental fat), arms, brassiere fat, and the inner and outer thighs.
As such, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure; treatments reduce unwanted bumps without any appreciable weight change. You must continue to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to maintain the continued positive benefits and fat reduction of CoolSculpting. For the inner thighs, the CoolAdvantage applicator is often the best option for the CoolSculpting treatment. You don't lose weight with CoolSculpting, as the CoolSculpting treatment is not a weight-loss device.
