CoolSculpting Is the Perfect End to Your Weight Loss Journey

Losing weight is no easy task, and if you’ve finally come to the end of your weight-loss journey, you’ve got a lot to celebrate. Of course, as exciting and encouraging as it can be to finally reach that much-anticipated goal weight, one of the frustrating things about dieting and exercise is that all fat doesn’t respond in the same way. Some areas slim down and tone up without too much fuss, while other areas take a little (or a lot) more time and dedication to get them where you want them to be. That’s all good. The really frustrating thing is that for most of us, there are some areas that just won’t budge, no matter what we do. And that means that while we may reach our goal weight, we may still feel less confident than we’d hoped, thanks to those pesky trouble spots and isolated bulges.

If that pretty much sums up your situation, CoolSculpting® could be just what you need to banish those hard-to-slim spots and reveal slimmer, sleeker contours. And the best part is that if you schedule a CoolSculpting treatment with Dr. Schneider now, you can be enjoying your “new” look before you know it.

How CoolSculpting works

CoolSculpting uses a unique, proprietary “cold energy” system to literally freeze your fat away, without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. In fact, CoolSculpting technology is so unique, it’s the only cold energy body-sculpting system to receive FDA approval for the nonsurgical removal of body fat. Unlike laser systems that use heat energy to melt fat, CoolSculpting uses waves of penetrating cold to target fat cells. As the cells absorb the cold energy, their walls weaken and become brittle, eventually breaking down.

The CoolSculpting applicator also offers gentle suction to ensure optimal contact with your skin and to help break down cell walls and get rid of fat for good. Over time, your body carries away the cell debris via the lymph system, eliminating the fatty material naturally without the need for incisions. CoolSculpting treatments are completely noninvasive, and there’s no need for anesthesia. Plus, there’s no recovery time or downtime, so you can go home right after your treatment and go right back to your regular activities. CoolSculpting can be an effective solution for getting rid of fat in and around your belly, flanks, thighs, waist, upper arms, back and bra area, and even under your chin.

Your CoolSculpting session

CoolSculpting is performed in a quiet, private room where you’ll be able to completely relax during your session. Before your treatment, a special gel will be applied to your skin to ensure optimal contact between your skin and the applicator surface. Next, Dr. Schneider places the applicator against your skin and adjusts it before beginning your session.

As the applicator releases those first bursts of penetrating cold energy, you’ll feel sensations of intense coolness as the energy reaches deep beneath the skin surface to the layers of tissue where your fat cells are located. After a few minutes, your body will adjust to the temperature, and the only sensation you’ll feel is the gentle pressure of the applicator against your skin. During your session, you can relax and read, text, listen to music, or just doze. Most sessions take about an hour or less, and multiple areas can be treated in a single visit.

CoolSculpting results

Once your session is over, your body goes to work flushing out the fat cells and debris, a process that takes several weeks. While you might see some initial results at about three weeks following your CoolSculpting session, maximum results won’t become visible until about two to three months afterward. Many patients get the results they want with just a single session, but if you have lots of trouble spots you’d like to address, you might benefit from a second treatment to reach your goals. 

You've worked hard to lose those excess pounds. Let CoolSculpting refine your results, so you can enjoy the sleeker, sexier contours you're looking for. To learn more about CoolSculpting at Melissa Schneider PC, book an appointment online today.
