This summer may have felt like a bust. Many of us didn’t travel as much as we may have if we weren’t living through a worldwide pandemic. For the most part, people have been staying at home a little more, or a lot more. The relative pause on life has interrupted countless fitness programs. The stress of this year has led to a little comfort eating here and there, or a lot. All in all, we now have something some have dubbed the COVID-15, a modern take on the “Freshman-15” that new college students used to be expected to gain. If you’re dealing with a little extra padding than you’d like, you may be looking for innovative solutions. CoolSculpting is one worth exploring.
CoolSculpting is a popular body-contouring treatment that has been widely used for several years now. It has proven itself effective, safe, and convenient. Reviewers on RealSelf give it an 83% Worth It rating. Still, CoolSculpting isn’t something that a lot of people jump into. Most have questions. We’ll discuss a few here. If you have questions that we don’t touch on, don’t hesitate to give us a call for more information.
Common CoolSculpting Questions
Do I have to lose weight before CoolSculpting?
This is a common question because there is a little confusion about what CoolSculpting can do. This technique is a body-contouring procedure. It works by freezing fat cells. When the liquid inside of fat cells crystallizes, the body flushes those cells naturally because they are seen as damaged. With a percentage of fat cells gone, won’t weight change? No. The amount of fat that is reduced during a series of CoolSculpting treatments can change the shape of the body, but not your weight. If you aren’t at your goal weight yet, keep going. If you’re close, though, come see us. CoolSculpting could be just what you need to stay motivated.
Does CoolSculpting really work?
CoolSculpting really works, yes. Remember that 83% RealSelf Worth It rating we mentioned? This is evidence of the results real people have achieved with CoolSculpting. The device was first cleared by the FDA in 2010. In the last decade, it has been expanded upon and refined to make it even better. According to studies, patients can expect up to 23% fat-reduction in their target area after each CoolSculpting treatment.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
CoolSculpting is a customized treatment program that usually involves more than one session. This makes it difficult to discuss the cost of body-contouring without a thorough consultation. Once we know how much contouring you would like and have the opportunity to evaluate your skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue, we can make an accurate recommendation about the number of treatment sessions you may need to get you where you want to be. Generally, great results are achieved with 3 to 5 sessions.
