Imagine finding out the best procedure to eliminate your body fat without surgery or downtime. Thankfully, such a procedure does exist! CoolSculpting is an effective, scientifically proven method of permanently reducing fat by freezing fat cells. It is the most proven and safest non-surgical contouring technology available today. To get the best possible results from this procedure, you have to be an ideal candidate.

1. Do you have Pinchable Fat?

The CoolSculpting procedure involves suction handpieces to aim at pinchable fat found above the muscle wall. CoolSculpting treatments target subcutaneous fat, which is one type of fat that is in the body. The other fat is visceral fat that lies below the muscle walls and should not be targeted by CoolSculpting, as it is connected with many health issues. It is amicable to weight loss, and if you are targeting it, you should invest in other procedures, not CoolSculpting.

2. Are you Looking to Spot-treat an Area?

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss option but a body-contouring procedure. The approved clearance for most bodies includes a BMI below thirty and a double chin BMI of below forty-three. However, BMI alone doesn’t always matter. If you have a BMI of over thirty, but you are happy with your body and weight, but you are looking to eradicate concerned areas like upper arms, chin, or bra line, CoolSculpting is the best option. It also acts as a catalyst for weight loss as many clients find it easy to lose weight after the procedure results begin to show.

3. Do you Notice Fat or Skin?

Now that you have pinchable fat, it is sure you are not aiming at losing weight but rather fat reduction. To be sure it is not skin you are noticing, you need pinchable fat of about one inch to get better results from CoolSculpting. The procedure entails fat reduction and some skin.

If you do not know if you have pinchable fat or skin, schedule a free consultation with an expert.

4. Is there a CoolSculpting Applicator that Fits Your Needs?

Going for the right applicator will lead to tremendous results. The reason for this is because the suitable applicator ensures sufficient contact with the CoolSculpting device’s cooling plates. Over five CoolSculpting devices perform overlap treatments for better results, though they are not used in treating the same areas.

5. Do you Need Time before Seeing Results?

CoolSculpting results take time to show. An ideal candidate for the procedure needs to have at least three to six months before seeing the result. Some clients have two to four treatment sessions to achieve their goals, which means they have to plan for their treatment early.

Schedule a Consultation

CoolSculpting is a procedure that needs thorough planning and preparation. You cannot accomplish it alone without the help of experts. Schedule a consultation with our certified CoolSculpting technicians at J. Sweat Plastic Surgery to learn more about the procedure and some expectations after the treatment.

You may desire the confidence of a beach body, but also want to enjoy your summer without discomfort or downtime. If this sounds like you, you might consider a nonsurgical body contouring procedure like Coolsculpting®! Here are some benefits you can expect:

No Incisions

With Coolsculpting, there are no incisions necessary! Instead, a cold applicator is directed at pockets of stubborn fat in the abdominal, flanks, back, thighs, or beneath the chin, destroying the fat cells by freezing them while protecting the outside skin and tissue. With no incisions, you can enjoy a comfortable treatment process without the use of sedation or anesthesia and with no risk of scarring.

No Downtime

With a surgical procedure, you can expect some degree of downtime, especially if anesthesia was required. This often means taking work off and having someone care for you for several days. But with Nonsurgical contouring like Coolsculpting, you won’t miss a beat when getting back to your daily schedule. With no incisions or medication required, no downtime follows only some occasional minor discomfort.

Lasting Results

The results from Coolsculpting aren’t immediate, but they are long lasting, just like a surgical procedure like liposuction! After your nonsurgical body contouring treatment, your body will need time to process and naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells. This could take up to twelve weeks with results starting to become visible in as short as 3-4 weeks. A second treatment to the areas of concern is usually always recommended for maximal results usually within 60-90 days of the first treatment.  After recovery from the treatments, you can enjoy a slimmer contour that lasts as long as you maintain your weight. Although the treated fat cells are gone for good, you can still gain weight in other untreated areas of your body. You can help ensure long lasting results through a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.
