CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting® is a leading body contouring treatment that eliminates unwanted fat without surgery, scars, or downtime. This popular, FDA-cleared treatment uses innovative controlled-cooling technology to safely and effectively sculpt the physique you’ve always wanted.

The professional and caring team at Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa works with you to develop a customized treatment plan to address your specific concerns and body goals.

Before and After Coolsculpting

How does CoolSculpting work?

It’s common for some fat to linger even after you lose weight, but CoolSculpting gets rid of that stubborn fat for good. Weight loss from diet and exercise causes your fat cells to shrink, but they remain in your body. This often leads to pockets of fat cells in common problem areas, such as love handles.

CoolSculpting destroys these stubborn fat cells without damaging your skin or surrounding healthy tissue. The technology is based on an observation from scientists at Harvard University, who noticed that children got dimples in their cheeks after eating popsicles. The phenomenon they observed was cryolipolysis, or a targeted fat cell reduction through freezing.

After your fat cells are destroyed, your immune system eliminates them out over time. This may take several weeks, during which time your sculpted physique transforms to a leaner more sculpted look.

What areas can CoolSculpting treat?

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared to reduce stubborn fat in many common areas, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Submental fat (double chin)

CoolSculpting Treatment

What should I expect from a CoolSculpting treatment?

First, the expert team at Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa evaluates your body shape and discusses your aesthetic goals during an initial consultation.

Assuming you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, they will work with you to create a unique treatment plan.

The length of a session depends on the area being treated, but most CoolSculpting treatments last 45 minutes. Though it isn’t painful, you may experience a prickly sensation as the applicator cools the treatment area through a skin protecting gel pad. This sensation often fades within 5-10 minutes

. once the area is numb due to the controlled cooling.

Since CoolSculpting requires no downtime for recovery, you can return to work , the gym and or your normal activities right away.

Some patients notice results in as early as 4 weeks after their procedure, but their full results typically take, two to three months to appear. Your body continues to flush out fat cells for up to six months, creating a more lean and toned figure.

To find out if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting, call Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa, or book a consultation online.

There are not enough words to express how pleased I am with every procedure I’ve had done. Dr. Youssef is an amazing surgeon, not only is he caring but also a perfectionist. All I can say is that it was a life changing experience.
