Body Sculpting

Do you struggle with diet and exercise to remove those last pockets of stubborn fat around your jawline or flanks? Some fat can be difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting is a body sculpting treatment that can help you eliminate those last pockets of fat after a weight loss transformation. If you need more information about CoolSculpting, contact A Younger You Medical Spa in Burlington, WI with your questions.

Body Sculpting FAQs:

What Is Body Sculpting With CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared body sculpting treatment developed by Allergan. The treatment uses Cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells without invasive surgical procedures and eliminate fat in the target area without harming the surrounding tissue. The treatment is administered by a doctor using the handheld CoolSculpting device. Patients can lose stubborn fat from a variety of areas without the need for intense dieting and exercise routines.

What Are the Right Areas for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an excellent solution for removing stubborn deposits of fat on the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, back, bra area, buttocks, upper arms, and submental fat under the jawline. The treatment targets the fat without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue.

Who Is an Ideal CoolSculpting Patient?

Patients of all ages, gender, and skin types can enjoy the benefits of CoolSculpting. Patients should be healthy and close to their ideal body weight before the treatment.

Can CoolSculpting Help Me Lose Inches From My Waist?

CoolSculpting patients often notice that their clothes fit better and may be able to choose smaller sized pants or dresses next time they shop for clothing. Patients can lose a few inches from their waistline with treatment.

How Are the Frozen Fat Cells Removed?

When the fat cells are frozen through the process of Cryolipolysis during a CoolSculpting treatment, the cells are destroyed. The body naturally disposes of the fat cells as waste in the months following the treatment, and this will not have an impact on your daily life.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

A single CoolSculpting session lasts only 35 minutes to one hour depending on the size of the area being treated. It is easy to fit CoolSculpting in your busy day, as there is no downtime after the treatment session.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

The typical patient requires only one or two sessions to reach their desired goal. A single CoolSculpting session can provide patients with a 20% to 25% reduction in fat from the treatment area. During your consultation, a specialist can give you an idea of how many sessions you might need.

When Will I See Results?

You will see the results take shape as the destroyed fat cells are eliminated from the body. Patients generally see noticeable results during the first three months after their treatment session, and the results continue to improve up until the sixth month. This makes the results of CoolSculpting appear more natural than other treatments that promise sudden results.

Is It Permanent?

Body sculpting results from CoolSculpting can be long-lasting. The fat cells that are destroyed are removed from the body and will not regenerate. The areas surrounding the treatment area can still store fat, however, so it is best to keep your ideal weight after treatment and practice healthy habits.

Will I Need to Lose Weight?

Some patients may be required to lose weight before the treatment. Losing weight can enhance the results of the treatment, so it is a good idea to live a healthy lifestyle before and after treatment. Patients will need to be close to their body weight goal and remain within 10 pounds of that weight from their consultation to their treatment date.

Can I Get Pregnant After CoolSculpting?

While it is safe to get pregnant after a CoolSculpting treatment, the results of the treatment will most likely be lost as pregnancy causes weight gain. If you are considering getting pregnant, you may want to wait until after childbirth to have your CoolSculpting treatment.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

CoolSculpting does not involve downtime or recovery. Many patients return to their work or everyday routine immediately after a treatment session without any significant changes. The treatment is fully completed in our Burlington Medical Spa without any hospitalization or overnight supervision.

Is It Painful?

CoolSculpting is painless, with most patients only noting mild numbness. Clinical studies have proven the technology for safe and effective treatment. The treatment is cleared by the FDA for safe treatment of a variety of areas where stubborn fat tends to be deposited.

How Much Does It Cost?

CoolSculpting prices can vary depending on the goals you intend to reach. Contact our Medical Spa for more details on pricing and how we can work with your budget. CoolSculpting is generally not covered by health insurance plans because it is a cosmetic procedure, so we recommend patients check with their health insurance provider for more details.

Who Is CoolSculpting Not Recommended for?

The treatment is not meant for significant weight loss or the treatment of obesity. CoolSculpting is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing. During the consultation, inform the doctor if you have any conditions involving sensitivity to cold, such as cryoglobulinemia.
