CoolSculpting is an innovative non-invasive medical procedure used to eliminate pockets of excess fat cells under the skin. The procedure does not involve anesthesia or incisions which means less downtime! Compared to traditional fat reduction methods, CoolSculpting has fewer risks and aims at body areas that are hard to lose weight in, even through exercise or dieting. These are a few things you need to know about CoolSculpting before scheduling your treatment.
CoolSculpting is widely preferred compared to other fat removal procedures because it needs no recovery time and is non-invasive. It incorporates FDA-approved freezing technology called cryolipolysis that breaks down fat cells. Other body cells are not affected by these cold temperatures and cannot be destroyed during the procedure.
During CoolSculpting, the treated area will be gently pulled into an applicator. The cold temperatures numb the site, and the treatment may take up to 60 minutes depending on how large the targeted area is. After the procedure, frozen fat cells take up to 6 months to exit the body as your natural metabolic system flushes them out.
The typical cost of cool sculpting treatment ranges between $2000-4000, with areas in need of small applicators costing less. CoolSculpting prices also differ depending on the number of procedures that the patient wants. Since this is a cosmetic procedure, your insurance will likely not cover your CoolSculpting treatment.
If you are within 30 pounds of your weight goal and want to get rid of stubborn areas of fat, CoolSculpting will give you the results you desire. CoolSculpting can also be used just about anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and neck.
There is a high satisfaction and success rate from CoolSculpting – it can reduce up to 20% of your body’s total fat! However, it is important to remember that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure. It is a procedure to tone and resculpt areas of the body.
