What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that reduces fat cells in targeted areas. It works by emitting freezing-cold temperatures to the fat cells beneath your skin, which freezes and damages them. Once damaged, the fat cells can no longer hold their volume. Over time, your lymphatic system gets rid of them as waste. 

You can see the full effect of a CoolSculpting treatment in six to eight weeks. Your provider may recommend that you get a short series of sessions depending on how much fat you want to lose. 

The treatment aims to minimize the pockets of fat that remain on your body even when you eat healthily and exercise regularly. CoolSculpting will not help you lose significant weight, so you are encouraged to reach your weight-loss goals first. Family Medical Clinic can work with you on personalized weight management before you consider getting CoolSculpting. 

Which parts of my body can CoolSculpting treat?

When you visit Family Medical Clinic for a treatment consultation, your provider asks about your goals and helps you decide which areas you want to target. CoolSculpting has multiple applicators, so you can target more than one area at the same time. 

Commonly targeted areas for CoolSculpting include:

  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Under your buttocks
  • Low back

You can minimize fat in these regions without surgery if you opt for CoolSculpting instead. Your provider reviews your health history to ensure that you can safely undergo the procedure. If you are not a candidate, your provider may be able to offer alternative suggestions to cut down on stubborn fat. 

How long do CoolSculpting results last?

The results of CoolSculpting and similar body contouring treatments are permanent because the fat cells they damage leave your body for good. However, it is still possible to gain weight and get more fat in the areas you treated. 

If you want to enjoy permanent results from CoolSculpting, you should commit to a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise. Habits like these help you manage your weight and avoid weight gain. Plus, they keep you healthier overall. 

CoolSculpting can contour your body into a more appealing shape with well-defined curves. Call Family Medical Clinic, schedule an appointment online, or walk in for a consultation today.
