CoolSculpting, also called cryolipolysis or fat-freezing, is a noninvasive procedure that can be used to freeze away fat cells on many different parts of the body. It eliminates stubborn fat deposits by delivering precisely controlled cooling.
Many people choose to undergo this procedure because it causes virtually no pain while it eliminates fat cells, and it requires no anesthesia. Plus, this treatment eliminates the need for surgery, such as liposuction.
Let’s talk about what you can expect to happen to your body after a CoolSculpting session, and who you can talk to in order to find out more about this treatment.
Results You Can Expect
This procedure is meant for people who are within their body’s normal weight range and are simply looking to reduce or eliminate pockets of stubborn fat. Patients who undergo CoolSculpting can expect to begin seeing results within less than a month, and they will see fat reduction of up to 25% in the treated area within 2 to 4 months.
This significant percentage of fat reduction happens because the fat cells are naturally melted away and eliminated through the body’s normal waste processes. The frozen fat cells will not transfer to another part of the body.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of treatment sessions will depend on your body. Larger pockets of fat may require more sessions than smaller pockets will. If you have a number of unwanted fat pockets that require treatment, this will also require more sessions for you to achieve the optimum overall slimming effect.
No Downtime After CoolSculpting
Unlike other fat-reducing procedures, CoolSculpting does not have any downtime because there is no recovery needed. This procedure involves no injections and no surgery whatsoever. You can go right back to your regular daily activities, go back to work, or enjoy what you were doing before your appointment.
Minimal Side Effects
After a CoolSculpting session, you may experience minor side effects such as temporary redness, swelling, cramping, muscle spasms, and itching in the treated area. However, these side effects should subside after a few hours or days. If they don’t subside within a week, contact the doctor who is treating you.
It is also typical for the treated area to be temporarily swollen after the session. It is sometimes recommended that you apply slight compression to the treated area until this side effect subsides.
