How CoolSculpting Can Improve Your Body

February 7, 2017

Find out how this advanced non-invasive technology can eliminate unwanted fat.

It can be frustrating when we start to exercise more and eat healthier and yet we still don’t see the results we want from our bodies. If you are having trouble getting rid of unwanted bulges and excess fat then it’s time to talk to your San Diego dermatologist about CoolSculpting.

Q. What is CoolSculpting?

A. This FDA-cleared non-surgical procedure uses cooling technology to freeze and get rid of unwanted fat cells from any part of the body. This cooling technology freezes the fat cells, which then die and are naturally removed from the body. Once these cells are gone they won’t return.

Q. Is CoolSculpting painful?

A. No. In the first few minutes of treatment you may feel some pressure or cold, but this will go away after a few minutes. Patients won’t feel discomfort or pain during the procedure and often spend their time reading or watching TV during their session.

Q. When will I notice results?

A. CoolSculpting results aren’t instant. It may take a couple of weeks after your first treatment to start to see a change; however, this change will be rather quick and you’ll notice significant results at around two months. Your body will continue to remove fat cells for up to four to six months after your CoolSculpting procedure.

Q. Is there a recovery period after getting CoolSculpting?

A. Since this procedure is non-surgical this eliminates the needs for any downtime. This means that you can return to your daily activities immediately after your treatment. No recovery period or post-procedural discomfort to contend with!

Q. How long will it take to get CoolSculpting?

A. Before your procedure, we will sit down with you and create a treatment plan that is unique to your specific needs. This also means that the treatment session will vary in length depending on how many areas you want to treat and how large the areas are. You may also need to schedule more than one session in order to get the results you want.

Q. Is CoolSculpting right for me?

A. If you’ve had trouble getting rid of excess fat in certain parts of your body despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, then you could benefit from this procedure. It’s important to note that this treatment is not a weight loss remedy for those who are overweight or obese.

To find out if CoolSculpting is right for you then schedule a one-on-one consultation with your San Diego, CA dermatologist, Drs. William L. Heimer or Gerald Haas at Hillcrest Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology.
