What’s a CoolSculpting® Procedure Like?
CoolSculpting® is a great non-surgical alternative, but what’s it like? The procedure is quick and easy! Once the applicator is applied, the patient can sit back and relax. Coolsculpting works by freezing fat cells in the area the patient wants to target. Your body will then rid them naturally over the course of three months.
Undergoing a CoolSculpting® procedure is relatively quick and non-invasive. While performing the procedure, your specialist will ensure maximum comfort while the machine freezes those fat cells away.
Typical sensations include may numbness, tingling, and/or pinching/pressure during the treatment. Be sure and bring a book or tablet to keep yourself occupied while your specialist performs the treatment.
How Long Does CoolSculpting® Take?
CoolSculpting® treatments take place in our office and last about an hour to a few hours depending on the recommended treatment for you. This also includes prep and aftercare for the procedure. Downtime is minimal and you’ll be able to get back to your day as soon as you leave the office. Typical side effects are mild but may include minor swelling, bruising, and/or numbness.
