CoolSculpting has significantly risen in popularity since its introduction in 2010. Since it is a non-invasive option for body contouring, patients have been flocking to the procedure. However, there are some facts about CoolSculpting that many patients are not aware of. Read for some insider secrets on the CoolSculpting procedure.
It Is Not a Skin-Tightening Treatment
First, when people think of CoolSculpting, they often think of a flat, toned abdomen. However, CoolSculpting only kills fat cells; only 25% of patients see any skin-tightening effects. So, if you have saggy skin, CoolSculpting will likely not improve it, and in some cases, can even make it worse. Skin tightening is best accomplished by surgery.
It Isn’t Completely Pain-Free
Although CoolSculpting treatments are not painful per se, they are not completely pain-free. Patients can feel discomfort for the first few minutes of the procedure when the vacuum is pulling at the skin.
Timing Goes By Treatment Area
When patients read that CoolSculpting only takes one hour to complete, they need to understand that it takes one hour per treatment area. This means that if you have both love handles done, it would be a two-hour procedure.
One Treatment Can Blast Fat
It takes just one treatment to reduce 20-25% of fat in the treated area. Plus, each time you decide to undergo another CoolSculpting session, you could experience an additional 20-25% reduction!
