While many of us are looking forward to the summer sun and heading to the beach, it may be causing a bit of anxiety for some. If you’re among those fretting over bikini season because of a few extra pounds or inches, it’s time to Google “Coolsculpting near me”. Coolsculpting can be the perfect solution for those annoying bulges that no amount of diet and exercise has been able to eliminate.

Still Wondering About CoolSculpting?

It’s just about impossible these days to have not at least heard about CoolSculpting. It’s advertised everywhere and most recently received a celebrity endorsement from American figure skater and fashion icon, Johnny Weir. But you might still be wondering what CoolSculpting is and how it works.

What is it?

Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure that freezes fat cells. This FDA cleared, fat reduction procedure uses controlled cooling to reduce and eliminate stubborn fat, helping you achieve that sculpted beach body you’ve always wanted.

What to Expect

Once you’ve Googled “CoolSculpting near me” and make an appointment with a certified provider, you’ll want to know what will happen next. During your initial consultation, your physician or medical esthetician will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

How it Works

CoolSculpting targets and kills unwanted fat cells using controlled cooling technology without any damage to the surrounding tissue. The fat cells that are frozen during the procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. Those fat cells are gone for good. The elimination of those fat cells along with a healthy lifestyle provides long-term results.   

How Many Treatments are Needed?

Everyone is different. How many treatments are necessary depends on which areas are being treated and your desired results. Some people only require one treatment and while others require multiple treatments. You may want to have more than one area treated and many providers have more than Coolsculpting treatment system and can treat a couple of areas at the same time. Your medical professional will determine how many treatments are needed to reach your goal.   

Which Areas of the Body Can be Treated?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen, flank, upper arm and submental area, commonly known as a double chin. There are a variety of CoolSculpting applicators, each designed to treat different parts of the body.

Losing Weight vs Losing Fat  

You’re probably wondering what the difference is between CoolSculpting and losing weight. Normally by the time we reach our teen years the number of fat cells in our body becomes a fixed number. If we gain weight, the number of fat cells doesn’t increase and losing weight doesn’t eliminate fat cells. They simply get larger if we gain weight and smaller if we lose weight.

CoolSculpting actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.  Because the fat cells in the treated areas are naturally processed and eliminated, they won’t migrate to another area of your body.  

Recovery Time

With Coolsculpting, there is really no downtime. After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. It is a virtually painless procedure during which many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap. CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically, you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day once a treatment is completed.
