CoolSculpting® Requires Very Little Downtime
The procedure itself is relatively quick depending on the target area being treated. Patients can be in and out of the LPS offices in under an hour. While the treatment itself can begin with some tingling, pinching, and deep cold sensations when the handpieces are placed on the target area, you’ll quickly become numb. Most patients tolerate the treatment well, with some even napping during the procedure. Aftereffects may include some redness, swelling, blanched skin, bruising, and firmness, which typically subside within a few hours. You’re immediately free to resume your regular schedule.
CoolSculpting® Results Take Time to Become Visible
The body’s metabolic process doesn’t happen overnight; it takes time to filter away dead fat cells. The results become noticeable 3-4 weeks following your treatment, and they’ll continue to improve over the next 6 months. When they do, they’re worth it. The fat cells remaining shift to fill in the gaps left by the filtered cells, so your treatment area is smooth, with no dimpling or uneven pockets of fat left behind. You’ll be slimmer with a sleeker profile than ever before.
Am I a Good Candidate?
CoolSculpting® is not approved for significant weight loss, so ideal patients are those within 30 pounds of their goal weight who have stubborn fat they’ve been unsuccessful in reducing. CoolSculpting® slims and tones away those last few bulges. If this sounds appealing, get started with a consultation at Longwood Plastic Surgery.
