What Can CoolSculpting® Treat?
CoolSculpting® is a modern technology that can be used to get rid of excessive bulges of fat present in different parts of the body. CoolSculpting® can treat the following areas:
- Around the face
- Under the chin and jawline
- In the upper arm
- Underneath the buttocks
- Around the abdomen and flank area
- Back and bra area
- Pseudo gynecomastia (male chest).
Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Good candidates for CoolSculpting® have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise.
Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
As the name suggests, during the process of your CoolSculpting® in Indianapolis, the cooling device is positioned on the targeted area, and controlled cooling is delivered through an applicator to freeze the fat cells present in the area. The applicator uses a vacuum to draw fatty tissue toward and into the applicator cup gently.
As the fatty tissue is drawn into the applicator cup, you might feel a pulling sensation, which is normal. Those who are sensitive to touch might feel this pulling sensation as a slight pinch or tug. While you will initially feel cold during the procedure, the area gets numb, and the feeling of coldness subsides.
How Many Treatments are Required?
Getting the body you desire may take one or more treatments. You can get anywhere between 20 and 25% of fat cells removed through one treatment alone, from a single area. This alone can drastically change the way your body looks. If you have very little body fat, a single session of CoolSculpting® will be enough for you.
How many sessions you require will depend on your body type. There are also other considerations that will affect the number of sessions you will require. These are:
- Your attitude toward a healthy lifestyle
- Your expectations from the procedure
- Your commitment to the treatment
CoolSculpting® in Indianapolis at SHarper Plastic Surgery can successfully remove fat from certain areas. You can have as many as three sessions for each target area. If you have more than one area to be treated, you will accordingly need extra sessions for those areas.
Large and stubborn pockets of fat will require more than one treatment. Each session will be performed several weeks or even months apart to let your body get rid of the destroyed fat cells naturally and organically.
CoolSculpting® is safe and can be done across several areas of your body simultaneously. At Dr. Harper’s Clinic, we have several CoolSculpting® devices, which allows us to help you target multiple areas simultaneously.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does the CoolSculpting® Procedure Cost?
The price for CoolSculpting® procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that is tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
How Long is Each Session and How Many Will I Need?
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting® session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals for your CoolSculpting® in Indianapolis.
Where Does the Fat Go and Are the Results Permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What Does it Feel Like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptops, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects?
During the procedure, you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness, or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.
Can I Return to Normal Activities After My Treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Usually, patients return to work right after their CoolSculpting® in Indianapolis.
When Will I See Results?
CoolSculpting® makes use of your body’s natural ability to get rid of fat cells. So, it will take some time for you to begin to see the results. You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Is CoolSculpting® Safe?
You can rest assured that CoolSculpting® is safe. It has been cleared and approved by the FDA to treat nine areas of the body. All clinical trials conducted on CoolSculpting® have demonstrated the treatment to be successful in reducing fat from different parts of the body.
