+ What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting fat freezing treatment is a permanent solution to getting rid of stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is the world's #1 FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate unwanted fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting can treat almost anywhere on your body. The five most common areas are the lower and upper abdomen, love handles, double chin, inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting is proven to be a safe and effective procedure with noticeable results and high patient satisfaction.
+ How does it work?
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precise, controlled cooling to gently and efficiently target stubborn fat cells underneath the skin initiating cryolipolysis. The treated fat cells are frozen and within a few weeks your body naturally processes the fat cells and eliminates the dead cells.
CoolSculpting results are permanent because fat cells are gone for good! And unlike other procedures, there's no change to the fat cells in untreated areas.
+ How Cool is the CoolSulpting procedure?
As the name suggests, the CoolSculpting procedure can be a little chilly. Controlled cooling is delivered via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat. While you'll feel the cool at the beginnning, the area we slowly become numb, but don't worry, we have plently of blankets to make sure you stay nice and warm while your fat freezes.
+ Does the CoolSculpting procedure hurt?
Though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching.
+ Can I multitask during my treatment?
Absolutely! The CoolSculpt room is equipped with Netflix, Wifi, and we can dim the lights if you need a quick nap; whatever feels most comfortable for you. So sit back, relax, and say goodbye to stubborn fat!
+ Is there downtime?
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process. Often times, patients even return to work after their CoolSculpting treatment is over.
+ How long is each treatment?
The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated however most cycles are only 35 minutes! The new and improved 35 minute applicators give you the ability to be in and out in as quickly as a lunch break! Dr. Prokupek has multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators which allows us to "dual sculpt". "Dual Sculpting" means we can treat multiple areas at the same time so you can get back to your daily routine as soon as possible.
+ How many treatments will I need?
During your free consultation we will help you create an individualized treatment to transformation plan tailored to your specific goals.
+ Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they are naturally processed and eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
+ When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience final results after 3 months.
+ Fat Reduction vs Weight Loss. What's the difference?
Reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It all depends on what happens the to fat cells. During your teenage years, the number of fat cells in your body typically becomes a fixed a number. When losing or gaining weight your body does not decrease or increase the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells.
Unlike diet and exercise, which only reduces the size of fat cells, the CoolSculpting treatment permanently eliminates the number of fats cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
