We may be in the coolest months of the year, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be thinking of summertime. Not only do we love to imagine how good the warm sun will feel on our skin but many of us also like to think ahead about all the fun we can have with our wardrobe once we can shed the layers of sweaters that are currently our norm. Now is a great time to also think about how we want to look when we do shed those layers. If there is a desire to be more sculpted, then now is the time to get all of your CoolSculpting questions answered.
CoolSculpting is the popular body-contouring treatment that causes crystals to form in targeted fat cells. After each treatment, up to 24% of the fat cells in the treatment area are destroyed. With a series of treatments, it is possible to achieve appreciable improvements in the contouring of areas such as the thighs, abdomen, chin, and other parts of the body.
Is it necessary to lose weight before CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a body-contouring treatment. Although it destroys a small amount of fat in a chosen area, it does not change a person’s weight. Think of it as a spot-treatment that eliminates those stubborn fat cells that hang around the hips, thighs, or another area. While there are no direct weight restrictions for CoolSculpting, patients who are near their ideal body weight tend to see the best results.
Does CoolSculpting really work?
Here is the big question! Does CoolSculpting actually get results? It does. This FDA-cleared device that freezes fat cells has been slimming bodies for several years now. Over one million treatments have been performed during that time, and the changes that people achieve are well-documented. If you’re a skeptic of CoolSculpting, you may be like the many others who become lifelong fans of this treatment after you experience the results for yourself.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The cost of Coolsculpting will differ for every person because it takes a certain number of treatments to achieve the intended outcome. Some people may need only one or two treatments to get rid of a double-chin, while others may want to treat multiple areas to get their best contours. Consulting with a CoolSculpting provider is the best way to determine costs and other treatment details. Doing so does not obligate you to schedule your treatment right away, but it gives you the exact information you need to determine the best time for your body-contouring treatment.
