How Long Does It Take to See CoolSculpting® Results?
CoolSculpting® is the world’s leading non-surgical body contouring procedure. Over time, the procedure helps patients say ‘goodbye’ to unwanted pockets of fat that are giving them grief. CoolSculpting® is a quick and easy solution for patients with busy lifestyles that don’t have time to commit to recovery from surgery.
Capital Laser & Skin Care offers CoolSculpting® treatments for patients seeking a non-invasive treatment with long-lasting results. Both men and women love the procedure because they’re able to sculpt their ideal figure with little to no pain, side effects, or downtime.
CoolSculpting® uses patented fat-freezing technology to selectively break down fat cells deep below the surface of the skin. Eventually, the fat cells rupture and die off allowing your body to naturally metabolize them. The damaged fat cells are flushed from the body over time leaving you with a more contoured physique.
The completely non-invasive procedure is done in a short in-office visit. CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved to address hard-to-treat fat pockets that are typically non-responsive to diet and exercise. Depending on the treatment area, you can be in and out of the office within the hour. CoolSculpting® is a no-downtime procedure so you can quickly get back to your normal routine.
Initial results will start to become evident in about 2-3 weeks. Continuous improvement will gradually occur throughout the coming months as dead fat cells are expelled from the body. Final results can be seen several months after your last CoolSculpting® session. Most patients enjoy a slimmer, sculpted appearance as well as a boost in confidence levels after treatment.
While some fat such as submental fullness (under-chin fat) can be reduced with just 1-2 sessions, other areas may require a series of treatments. Moderate body contouring can typically be accomplished with 2-6 CoolSculpting® sessions. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart until desired results are achieved.
Is CoolSculpting® Right for You?
CoolSculpting® may be a good fit for you if you have isolated pockets of fat that aren’t going away with diet or exercise. Non-invasive body contouring is safe and effective for nearly any patient within 30-pounds of their ideal weight. CoolSculpting® can be used for submental fullness, abdomen, flanks, upper arms, inner/outer thighs, buttocks, back and bra fat.
Patients who are also bothered by loose, sagging skin can benefit from pairing CoolSculpting® with Exilis Elite™ skin tightening treatments. Your skilled provider will assess your condition and speak with you about all of your options in-depth at the time of your initial consultation.
