What does it feel like?
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging, and mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat so you may feel intense cold but this sensation typically subsides within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many people read, check email or even take a nap during their sessions. Afterwards, patients are usually able to return to normal activities.
Where does the fat go?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Does it really work? When will I see results?
Yes! The CoolSculpting procedure has up to a 95% patient satisfaction rate1. Your provider will help you create an individualised treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their session, most dramatic results are usually seen 1-3 months after treatment.
What happens if I gain weight down the road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you gain weight after your CoolSculpting procedure, remaining fat cells may enlarge as they absorb excess fat.
