Each CoolSculpting® session is personalized around your body’s shape and the areas of fat you are targeting for elimination.
CoolSculpting treatments target fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue through scientifically-controlled cryolipolysis (killing fat cells with controlled cooling), safely delivering precision cooling to the targeted area(s) with the CoolSculpting paddles to reduce and eliminate fat cells. The result: fat cells are permanently destroyed, naturally absorbed by the body and then completely eliminated over the following weeks. In fact, CoolSculpting effectively reduces fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
Yes, CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved nonsurgical treatment for the elimination of fat deposits under the chin, on thighs, abdomen and flanks, as well as for back fat, upper arms and under the buttocks.
Although liposuction is another proven way to get rid of excess fat tissue in these same areas, it’s a surgical procedure and therefore naturally involves some risk and significant post-operative swelling. Our answer, while liposuction is also a proven and relatively safe procedure, CoolSculpting is the proven non-surgical alternative and usually considerably less expensive. And, when considering the additional discomfort and recovery time associated with liposuction, it’s easy to see why CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular body sculpting treatments available today.
At Aqua Medical Spa, each treatment usually lasts anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes, with our team being able to treat more than one area during your appointment.
Our team, including a physician, will work with you to fully understand what your goals are and the problem areas you want to focus on. From there, we will develop your customized CoolSculpting treatment plan to help you on your journey to that slimmer, more sculpted body you’ve been waiting for.
Over the first few minutes of your CoolSculpting treatment, you will feel intense cold in the area being treated. The good news is the area you are having treated usually numbs quickly and the sensation disappears. As this is happening the CoolSculpting applicator will constantly be applying mild suction as it begins freezing the fat, with you experiencing a slight pulling sensation while the area is being treated.
This three-cycle process: fat cell freezing, fat cell death and fat cell disintegration, coupled with your own body’s metabolism, usually takes up to three weeks or more before you will see noticeable results. Followed by the most highly notable changes in your body’s contour fully revealing the results after two to three months and continuing to process the targeted fat cells for up to six months. The results: we think they’ll speak for themselves. In addition, around 8–10 weeks after your treatment, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your results, and determine if another treatment is recommended for the same area.
While the results of CoolSculpting are usually a great motivator for maintaining an ideal weight through diet and a regular exercise program, you will find that if you do gain weight after CoolSculpting, the fat will typically be more evenly distributed throughout your body. Why? Because that new weight will be far less likely to collect in any area and/or areas that you have already had treated due to the number of fat cells in the area treated being reduced following your treatment.
