So What is CoolSculpting?
Sometimes scientific breakthroughs happen almost by accident. Who knew that studying dimples in children who ate popsicles could lead to a breakthrough such as Coolsculpting? Back in the 1980s, doctors noticed that these popsicle loving kids were getting dimples in their cheeks where they didn’t have them before. That lead to the discovery that the subcutaneous fat cells found just beneath the skin react to cold temperatures differently than other cells. Specifically, when they are exposed to temperatures of around 39 degrees Fahrenheit they develop ice crystals and burst, while other types of cells, including skin cells, are unharmed. These burst fat cells are simply taken away by the body and processed. This is called cryolipolysis, from the words for freezing, fat and breaking down.
The end result of concentrated cryolipolysis is a slimmer and trimmer silhouette. One of the great things about getting rid of fat cells is that they don’t return. True, the fat cells left behind can get larger or smaller, but the ones that are gone are gone for good.
This noninvasive procedure is not only chosen by our clients because it eliminates unwanted fat cells non-invasively, but because it does so in a way that is targeted, safe and effective. Applying cold to any part of the body risks frostbite, so our estheticians are trained to apply the device to the area of unwanted fat correctly and for a precise amount of time. Moreover, clients who have more than one problem area can have the treatment to these areas at the same time.
The client should feel free to read, write or rest during the session. There may be feelings of pulling and cold for the first few minutes, then the skin grows comfortably numb. There’s no downtime, so after the devices are removed the client can go back to their regular schedule. Any bruising, swelling or tenderness after the treatment goes away after a few days, just like the frozen fat cells. After about a month, the client will see the difference that their treatment made.
This revolutionary fat-removing procedure has passed more then 5000 clinical trials with over 5 million people raving about the treatment. When it comes to CoolSculpting, patient satisfaction is extremely high.
Your Annapolis Area CoolSculpting® Questions Answered
What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure, enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
