Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that targets unwanted bulges of subcutaneous fat cells that have proven to be resistant to a healthy lifestyle. Ultimately, only a qualified healthcare professional can determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure by evaluating your individual circumstances. Therefore, you will need to schedule a consultation at Redlands Body Sculpting to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you!
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure recommended by physicians. The procedure is FDA-cleared and has proven to be safe and effective with millions of CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide.
What does the procedure feel like?
We begin with placing a cold gel pad over the skin and the treatment applicator following. With certain applicators you will feel some pulling and tugging as suction is applied. As the treatment begins, for the first few minutes, you will feel intense cold. This feeling soon dissipates as the targeted area becomes numb, typically 5 to 10 minutes after the treatment commences. Many patients read, watch videos, use their mobile device or even take a little siesta during their treatment. At the conclusion of the treatment, the targeted area is massaged for 2 to 3 minutes. This massage is intended to improve your fat reduction results, but it can be accompanied with some discomfort. Fortunately, it only lasts a few minutes. After treatment, patients are usually able to return to normal activities immediately with little to no downtime or limitations. It’s that easy!
How long does the treatment take?
The length of each CoolSculpting treatment (aka “cycle”) can range from 35 to 75 minutes depending on the type of applicator being used. You may be able to receive multiple treatments simultaneously, depending on the area being treated.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments needed to achieve your specific goals will vary depending on:
1. The areas you want to target.
2. The percentage of fat cells you want to eliminate from those areas.
The first round of treatment gets you a 20-25% reduction in the targeted site, whereas a second round of treatment reduces about 40% of the initial fat cells from the targeted site. Since most people prefer the more noticeable 40% reduction in fat cells, they purchase 2 rounds of treatment for each part of their body they want to target.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
CoolSculpting is priced by the “cycle” (every time an applicator is placed on the body). Your total CoolSculpting investment is completely customized, meaning total price depends on the part of the body you want to treat, your anatomy, and your goals! To determine your unique price quote, you can schedule a consultation with one of our specialists.
What happens during a CoolSculpting consultation?
Your consultation is a personalized session where our experts assess your specific goals. We delve into the principles of Cryolipolysis, explaining how the treatment will freeze fat and can lead to effective non-surgical fat reduction. Following this, we collaborate to devise a customized plan tailored to your unique needs.
How do I prepare for my CoolSculpting treatment?
Preparation is simple. Wear comfortable clothing, and ensure you stay hydrated. The procedure involves applying a specialized applicator to the targeted area, initiating the Cryolipolysis process. This non-invasive method freezes fat cells, triggering a natural removal process without surgery or downtime.
Can CoolSculpting be combined with other body contouring treatments?
Absolutely. CoolSculpting can complement other body contouring treatments for a comprehensive fat freezing treatment approach. Our specialists are skilled in creating synergistic plans to enhance your results, ensuring a sculpted and refined appearance.
Is CoolSculpting a better option than non-surgical alternatives like body wraps or creams?
CoolSculpting, utilizing Cryolipolysis, stands out as an effective and non-invasive solution for targeted fat reduction. While individual preferences vary, the precision and proven results make it a preferred choice over alternatives like body wraps or creams
