CoolSculpting is still the number 1 non-invasive fat-reducing procedure in the world. It has been performed over 8 million times with tremendous success in getting rid of “pinchable” fat. CoolSculpting® reduces stubborn fat without surgery or downtime.
WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary fat reduction technology that uses the principles of cryolipolysis. The stable, cooling energy causes fat cells to crystalize and die off, all without damaging the overlaying skin. This process can be used to target areas where your body tends to keep fat, no matter the amount of diet and exercise. The result is a slimmer, more contoured look to your favorite areas.
WHAT AREAS CAN COOLSCULPTING BE USED ON?
The best part about CoolSculpting is it can be used on virtually any area of the body that carries stubborn fat. The platform comes with a variety of handpieces molded to fit specific contours, including:
- Bra fat
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM COOLSCULPTING?
The process of flushing the damaged fat cells from the body after CoolSculpting can take time. In fact, it can take anywhere between 3-6 months for results to emerge after treatment. For best results, you’ll likely need a package of treatments spaced about 3-4 weeks apart. You might begin to see fat reduction about 3 weeks after treatment, but your results will only continue to improve from there.
HOW TO SPEED UP COOLSCULPTING RESULTS
CoolSculpting only works as quickly as your body’s natural metabolism. However, there are a few ways you can help the process along. This includes keeping up on your exercise regimen to keep metabolism high. Make sure to also drink plenty of water to help your body flush out the crystalized fat cells. Finally, there’s some evidence that massaging the treatment area for five minutes after treatment can help reduce fat within the first two months. Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa is one of the only facilities in Wisconsin that uses the ZWave acoustic massage after treatment to enhance your results. We also offer both Revision Skincare’s BodiFirm and Alastin Skincare’s Transform Body Treatment to use daily after treatment to enhance and in many cases, speed up results.
WHAT IF I DON’T SEE COOLSCULPTING RESULTS?
It’s always possible that, to see your ideal results, you’ll need to undergo more than one treatment cycle. Usually, a spot needs to be treated twice, about 4-5 weeks apart to get the best result. That can reduce about 50% of the fat in the treated area. This gives your body plenty of time to begin to process of flushing the treated cells – and it gives you time to judge your results and whether you might benefit from another treatment cycle. Additionally, our CoolSculpting technicians can help you estimate how many cycles you’ll need to achieve your ideal results.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
CoolSculpting has gotten some bad press lately, because of a complication that can occur in a small number of patients, when fat can actually grow more prominent after it is treated. This was much more likely to occur using the original two-plate, high suction applicators. We do not use that old technology and almost no one does today, so complication is highly unlikely!
