Is CoolSculpting Right For Me?

Womans body with measuring tape close up. We all want to have a body that turns heads when we walk into a room. There is a combination of tools at your disposal that you can use to create your perfect look. Diet, exercise, and supplements are good places to start. But what if these methods aren’t enough to get results?

If you’ve been to the gym and kept your diet under control, but you still need something extra to achieve the body of your dreams, CoolSculpting is an option you may want to consider.

What CoolSculpting is Not

There is a misconception that CoolSculpting and liposuction are interchangeable. While both procedures have a similar goal of reducing body fat, liposuction is a surgical procedure that sucks away fatty deposits in your body.  CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that targets specific areas in your body. Fat cells are frozen off, gradually contouring your body to your desired look. Also, neither CoolSculpting nor liposuction are weight loss methods. Weight loss is caused by fat cells in the body shrinking, whereas CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells.

When to Consider CoolSculpting

Liposuction is a great way to get rid of stubborn fat. However, lengthy recovery times, swelling, and incisions make it a less desirable option for those who want fast results.  If you are looking for a minimally invasive option, CoolSculpting is a method that can help you.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Take?

CoolSculpting sessions generally take between 30 minutes and an hour, but each treatment time could vary. After your session, you can resume your normal activities.

When to Expect Results

The results you experience will be an ongoing process. Most patients report changes after three weeks. As fat cells are released from the body, you will continue to experience changes in the months after your last treatment.

Are There Side Effects?

Like any procedure, there are risks for side effects that come with CoolSculpting.

These include:

  • Bruising
  • Itchiness
  • Cramps
  • Redness
  • Stinging
  • and others
