How Long Does CoolSculpting® Last?
Because the fat cells removed by CoolSculpting® do not grow back, your results can last indefinitely. However, significant changes in weight can affect your overall body fat composition. The best way to keep your lasting results: maintain a reasonable weight management program.
What is CoolSculpting® Like?
A CoolSculpting® treatment uses an applicator placed on your skin to induce the cold temperature needed to eliminate fat cells. You may feel pulling and tugging on the skin, a pinching sensation, and cold or tingling during the procedure, but will not need numbing medication. The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the areas being treated and whether you choose to have treatment on more than one area.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?
According to the manufacturer, customized CoolSculpting® plans will cost anywhere from $2000 to $4000 for the entire course of treatment, depending on how many treatments you need. While some people may be satisfied with just one session, some people will require two or more sessions to see their maximum results.
Is There Any Downtime with CoolSculpting®?
After CoolSculpting®, you can return to your regular activities with no downtime. The skin may be mildly red or sensitive for a few hours, but you can do anything you would normally do.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Since CoolSculpting® requires no invasive procedures and causes no damage to normal tissue, most people are good candidates. People who have medical conditions making their skin sensitive to cold should not undergo this treatment.
