Everything You Need to Know About CoolSculpting® AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

Some people look in the mirror and are perfectly content with what they see, while others may only focus on their flaws. These people look at stubborn fat that does not go away with diet or exercise, and this can significantly affect their self-esteem. Many men and women often think of liposuction as the way to get rid of this fat. However, not everyone wants to undergo this type of invasive surgery.

When diet and exercise end up falling short of the results you want to see, CoolSculpting® may be an option. CoolSculpting® has become a more common alternative to liposuction and other invasive procedures, allowing you to effectively eliminate stubborn fat on your body with no surgery or downtime.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a branded method of fat reduction that relies on a procedure called cryolipolysis. Some people call it “liposuction that doesn’t break the skin,” because CoolSculpting® uses suction and cooling techniques to treat the underlying fat rather than using a cannula to suck the fat out of treatment areas.

With CoolSculpting®, the fat is naturally metabolized by your body, allowing your skin to keep up with the slimming process. This body-contouring technique is one of the most popular choices for those who do not want to undergo invasive surgery.

CoolSculpting® can treat many different area, including:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Stomach
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Neck
  • Chin

How Fat Leaves the Body After CoolSculpting®

After your CoolSculpting® treatment, the fat cells affected by the cryolipolysis are naturally eliminated through your lymphatic system. This fat-elimination process is gradual, and your results will become more noticeable over the next few months. Your clothes will begin to fit better, and you will see noticeable changes in the CoolSculpting® treatment areas.

How Long Should I Wait Between CoolSculpting® Treatments?

Our CoolSculpting® specialists will determine how many sessions are needed to treat the target area(s) and achieve your desired results. Most patients require one to three treatment sessions. If multiple sessions are required, they will be scheduled about one month apart.

How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting® varies from person to person. When you come to Dermacare San Diego for your consultation, you will be examined and your goals, desires, and concerns will be discussed. At your consultation, you will be given a treatment guide that lists out the treatment areas, number of treatments necessary, and the associated cost.

CoolSculpting® Results to Expect

Most patients can expect to see their results begin to show about six weeks after their CoolSculpting® treatment session. As mentioned previously, results are gradual, so your body will work continuously to eliminate the treated stubborn fat. Final results are present after about four months. Because the CoolSculpting® process destroys the treated fat cells, they are not able to regenerate, ultimately offering long-lasting results.

Verdict: Should I Get the CoolSculpting® Treatment?

If you are tired of dealing with stubborn fat, then CoolSculpting® may be very effective at reducing it. It won’t fix the underlying cause of the fat, so it does not spare you from pursuing a healthy lifestyle; however, it will help give you a good start. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, CoolSculpting® can help you get that body that you always wished for.
