What To Expect
Your CoolSculpting Consultation: The First Step
It’s easy to get started in your CoolSculpting journey to a slimmer you. Your first step will be scheduling a consultation with your CoolSculpting provider, Huntington Dermatology.
During Your First Visit
You’ll meet with a CoolSculpting clinician during a one-on-one consultation. This person could be a doctor or another medical professional who has specialized training in the CoolSculpting procedure.
Your CoolSculpting clinician will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body. Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles—and then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat.
Before and After
What is Coolsculpting?
CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard scientist Rox Anderson and is a patented, and clinically proven procedure that involves freezing fat cells without damaging the skin. There is no knife, no suction hoses, no needles, and no lasers. After treatment with CoolSculpting, patients can go on with their day without complications or downtime.
We understand that losing weight can often be difficult, but with the CoolSculpting it doesn’t have to be so difficult anymore. On average, our patients will experience a 20% to 25% reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit. With additional appointments, patients can lose even more. Simply put, CoolSculpting patients will look better and feel better in just a few months.
With CoolSculpting, a patient’s fat cells are naturally eliminated from their body over the following few months, leaving them feeling more like themselves again. The fat cells and their contents are cleared naturally by a process called apoptosis, which means the macrophages—the Pac-men of the body—take them away without ever dumping fat into the circulation, unlike liposuction and other techniques of fat removal. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure with no downtime. What is even more exciting is that there are no pills or supplements needed. As long as a patient maintains their weight with normal diet and exercise, the long-term results should remain stable.
Your Treatment Plan: Customized to Your Body
Everyone’s body is Different
Your CoolSculpting clinician will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, your clinician can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results.
Eliminate Fat Where the Bulges Really Bother You
For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment. For example, you may want freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top. Some practices have multiple CoolSculpting systems and can treat different body areas at the same time.
It’s a Holistic Approach to Your Body-Sculpting Transformation
Your physician will provide a clinical recommendation of which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need. The result? The sculpted shape you want.
Your Treatment Day: NO Surgery. NO Needles. NO Downtime.
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap.
After Your Treatment
Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the CoolSculpting procedure.
While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their first treatment, the most dramatic results are usually seen between 1 and 3 months following treatment.
How It Works
CoolSculpting Freezes & Eliminates Stubborn Fat
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Fat Freezing During the CoolSculpting Procedure
Fat Elimination After the CoolSculpting Procedure
Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. The fat is gone for good! Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
