About the Treatment
Each treatment lasts roughly one hour. Most patients require two sessions to see the desired results, with the second visit occurring approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the first.
What is CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells through a freezing process known as Cryolipolysis. At The John Bull Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Medispa in Naperville, patients can expect a comfortable environment with few short-lived side effects that come with the application of cold-temperature to the skin.
How it Works
With non-surgical body contouring, or CoolSculpting, patients can expect to experience cool temperatures ranging from -5 to 5 degrees Celsius (23 to 41 Fahrenheit) from a cooling pad that is applied to the target zone. The applicator that targets specific fat cells delivers freezing at -16 Celsius (4 Fahrenheit).
Following the procedure, patients are massaged in the treated area, a process that enhances results.
Initially, patients can expect a cool sensation on the surface of the area, a side effect that typically goes away as the dermis (skin) automatically adjusts to the temperature. In fact, the most “discomfort” happens at the massage stage as a result of the physical application of pressure to your body.
In addition to the non-invasive benefits associated with CoolSculpting, non-surgical body contouring permanently destroys fat cells. These cells are eliminated through the circulatory system and in natural waste.
With CoolSculpting, patients will start to see results relatively quickly in as little as 3 weeks, with the most dramatic changes becoming noticeable within two months. Since the fat cells are destroyed, they do not “grow back” and the effects are of the procedure are not reversed. That means that if you maintain a healthy diet and remain active, you’ll never see that unwanted fat return. Likewise, the destruction of the fat cells through CoolSculpting does not impact your appearance should you gain weight again.
In terms of disadvantages, CoolSculpting requires a repeat visit for optimal results, and each session requires an hour’s commitment. In rare instances, because of the temperatures involved, some patients might experience side effects as a result of a pre-existing medical condition. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
