Though the weather is cool and wintry now, we know that soon enough the balmy days of spring and summer will arrive. You may be thinking ahead to bikini season and the areas of your physique that are storing excess fat. CoolSculpting® is a great way to reduce these excess fat cells without surgery. Arrange your CoolSculpting treatment now so that you can enjoy your results when bikini season arrives.
Here’s what to expect after CoolSculpting:
Mild swelling, redness, tingling, firmness or other minor side effects are normal. These temporary effects will fade over the next day or so. Most people feel more than comfortable getting right back to their day, whether that involves working, yoga class, preparing dinner or any other activity. Your body will eliminate the excess fat cells over the next several weeks.
You will begin to see significant changes 3 weeks after CoolSculpting. Your results will continue to improve in the months ahead.
Your body continues to process the destroyed fat cells for 3-4 months after treatment. If you schedule your CoolSculpting treatment soon, your body results will look great in time for summer weather. You’ll be able to shop for summer dresses, sleeveless tops and shorts with your new contour in mind.
CoolSculpting Treatment Areas
CoolSculpting can be applied to virtually any area of the body, including those most likely to accumulate stubborn fat:
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
- Double chin
You may have always had extra fat on certain parts of your body, or you may have noticed an accumulation as the years passed. With age, many parts of our physiques tend to store excess fat. Women may be more likely to see fat deposited on the hips, thighs and upper arms. Men may be more likely to see their bellies expand as they grow older; however, extra fat could be stored anywhere on your body regardless of your gender. CoolSculpting treats all of these areas. In fact, at our practice two areas can be treated at once with DualSculpting™, in which our physicians apply two CoolSculpting applicators at once. The procedure is non-surgical, non-invasive and typically completed in a 1-hour appointment.
This treatment destroys fat cells by freezing them. The surrounding tissue is unaffected. Advantages of CoolSculpting include:
- Painless fat reduction without surgery
- Effective and lasting results
- No significant downtime or recovery
Please arrange an in-person consultation with our experienced physicians to find out how it will work for you. Most people are good candidates for CoolSculpting because it is gentle and non-surgical.
