CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, fat-freezing procedure that helps to reduce fat in the body. It is especially useful on those areas of the body with diet- and exercise-resistant excess fat. This liposuction alternative procedure offers a highly effective way to target specific problem areas on the belly, thighs, arms or neck. CoolSculpting is generally a part of a larger, holistic weight loss plan that you will design with your physician to help you achieve your specific goals. Total Health and Peak Medical have a range of different practitioners who can evaluate you and determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting.
What to Expect from CoolSculpting
The clinician will perform a diagnostic, one-on-one evaluation during your first visit. Generally, you will also discuss a holistic approach to reshaping your body, which may include CoolSculpting, depending on your goals. The clinician will then look at your whole body from all angles to determine which areas would benefit from reduced fat.
During the treatment, the clinician places a cool pad on the treatment area before applying the CoolSculpting applicator. Doing so will deliver controlled cooling only to the desired area. As may be expected, the treatment can feel a bit cold because the applicator applies concentrated freezing power to one part of your body. This initial intense cold feeling usually subsides within 5-10 minutes. You may also feel some light pulling or tugging, since the applicator uses a light vacuum to pull fatty tissue into the applicator. Feel free to multitask during the procedure — you can read, check your phone or even take a nap.
